Labour Changes Passport Rules to Prepare for ID Cards
Last week, the UK passport agency's website included the text, "You do not have to wait until your passport is nearly expired to renew it...You can renew your passport whenever you wish". You can see Google's cache HERE. This week, that text has mysteriously disappeared. See HERE. It now implies that you can't renew your passport until the last 9 months of its validity. Anyone would think they were trying to stop a mass of early renewals to avoid ID cards. Perish the thought. They'd never do that, would they? Nah.
