British Passports Could Reportedly Be Blue Again After Brexit - But Not Everyone Is Happy

Post by Guest on Sun Apr 02, 2017 7:58 pm

The UK could be set to return to navy blue passports following Brexit, it has been reported - but not everyone seems convinced this is an entirely justified priority.
The Sunday Express claimed that a £490 million contract for the redesign of the passports has been put out for tender.
The current contract is set to expire in 2019 - the year the UK will finally leave the EU.

Apparently burgundy passports are a ‘source of national humiliation’
Tory MP Andrew Rosindell, chairman of the Flags and Heraldry Committee, told the Sunday Express that the burgundy passports were a “source of national humiliation”.
Meanwhile his fellow Tory Peter Bone told the Sun: “Having got back our national independence, we can express that by having our own passports again.”
The reaction on social media, however, was less than impressed...

[ltr]Blue passports will cost £500m, or twice that if they have to buy a second ink cartridge for the printer.[/ltr]

[ltr]£500m for different coloured passports seems entirely reasonable. Especially given the public sector is so well funded at the moment.[/ltr]
