    Default British Passports

    One of the great whinges of the little Englanders during the Brexit debate was that we no longer had the iconic 'blue' passport. Instead we had to suffer the indignity of red passports that said 'European Union' on the front.

    So, the old passports looked like this.. not really very blue.



    The much despised EU passorts look like this..



    And the proposed new British passports look like this.. VERY blue.



    The amusing thing is, the new passports were originally supposed to be made by a British company, but the contract has now been given to a Franco/Belgian company who will manufacture them in Poland

    Oh well, at least it will stop a bunch of those Polish buggers coming over here stealing our jobs. Now they will be able to stay in Poland and steal our jobs

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I'm quite annoyed that my British/EU passport is to be greatly diminished. Bloody idiots.

    Yes, I could have obtained one too but I won't bother now.
