british passport

Pricey passports
You’re a British citizen, you pay upwards of £77.50 for your passport, it has a valid picture of you in it – so it’s yours, right? Well, maybe. According to the text on the leaflet it belongs to Her Majesty’s Government. But in 1955, Earl Jowitt, a former solicitor-general and attorney-general, pointed out that ‘the Government’ couldn’t own anything because there is no such legal entity. No one since has been able to clarify the matter. So who gets the £77.50?

£77.50, half your luck. Aussie one's are about $300.

the Aussie gov has to take 77.50 out to give it to the Queen of England, the rest its theirs, but you are right it still sounds expensive,

A british passport might only be 77 quid if renewed in Britain but when you are an expat like myself living in Australia it costs a fuckin load more than that and involves a lot of fuckin about to get it ,thats why I'm gonna get myself neutralized before my brit one expires next yr !

The money goes toward to funding UK embassies abroad . I remember reading it whilst applying for a passport .
