Well done to the Passport Office
Most of us take great delight in complaining when government departments fail to give the standard of service we expect, so credit where credit's due. Last Monday I discovered my passport had run out so I sent off a renewal form on Tuesday with little hope that it would come back within the three week period they tell you to expect. But lo and behold, what do you think came in the post this morning, a mere 8 days later? Yup, my new passport. Hat's off to the Passport Office. Just a shame it's one of those revolting red EU ones, rather than the British black one. But you can't have everything...

Blame Thatcher for that. If you dare.
Not sure I understand that comment...
Iain did you notice the differance at the top.
On your old passport it would say european community, what does this one say top front?
Iain, when you filled in the passport form and it asked your nationality, did you tick British or White Other and write English?
You could have chosen Scottish or Welsh of course but if you're English you can only choose British or White Other.
Is it worth saving the Union if this is what we have to put up with?
Aren't the old ones blue, not black?
