    UK Passports

    Thanks to that idiot Nigel Farage Britain is going to issue those old blue passports. Who wants them back - not me!

    You need to add a third option - the i really don't care option - then you could have my vote.
    I don't give a flying fuck what colour my passport is.

    Pretty low on the list that, to be fair.

    We're not really getting the UK old style passport back. The new ones are nothing like the old UK ones.

    The new ones look more like the EU ones, just a different colour and without the EU text.

    Shirely I'm in the majority, with me passy in some sleeved cover that also holds half a dozen passport-sized photos, should they ever be needed for anything.

    @ Neverva. Are they? I haven't actually seen any new ones, if that photo is true it's alright. Farage was saying or implying it would be old heavy type?

    Stop playing with my brain; I never questioned that they were blue, now I'm doubting, don't know why, doesn't make the slightest difference to anything.

    Yeah, leaving it pretty much the same because actually going back to how it was would cost a fortune and would be an idiotic business decision, raising the cost for no good reason.

    Ironic, eh?

    Does the small print on the last page read "Made in EU for United Kingdom. So long and thanks for all the fish" ?

    . . . by a Dutch/french company.

    Will they be subject to import duty when sent to the UK after 2020?

    Brilliant

    As long is it still gets me into most countries without the need for a visa I couldn't give a monkey's flying fuck what colour it is.

    I read somewhere that it was dark blue bordering to black but can't find that source now when googling.

    You’re overestimating how much it matters to anyone, and also overestimating the value of your opinion. Wanker.

    The Guardian confused, just like Cy. There’s a surprise.

    You must be colour blind - they were never black! They were Navy Blue!
