Her Majesty’s Passport Office dropped European Union from Passports on 30th March

Home Office says it was working on assumption Brexit day would be 29 March.

TAP – The only people who didn’t realise Britain left the EU on the 29th March were MPs at Westminster bar the four Conservatives who are suing the government for illegal delaying negotiations with the EU.  If the Foreign Office knows we left on the 29th, then why not the politicians?  Do you think the Foreign & Colonial Office don’t have lawyers?  We are out.   Theresa May is using Zionist control of the media to deny the truth, and hope the legal position can be fudged retrospectively.   Conservative MPs are now awake too what6 is going on and want Theresa May removed as a matter of urgency, but can they get the required 10,000 signatures from Party members?  You would think so, unless the Constituency Associations have been carefully staffed over the last few years, and the Chairmen put into position by organisations like Common Purpose.  The battle within the Conservative Party is crucial at this moment to stop the fudge from continuing.  At least the Passport Office, so prone to ‘errors’ as we found out this year with our daughter’s passport problems requiring me to go Midland Today and cry publicly! seems to have got this one right.

Sajid Javid has defended the issuing of British passports without the words European Union on the front cover despite the Brexit delay. The burgundy passports were introduced from March 30, the day after Britain was expected to leave the EU.

The home secretary said the move was “sensible and efficient” because some passport centres had run out of the previous design.

The UK government started issuing British passports without the words “European Union” from March 30 even though the UK still remains a full member of the bloc. It removed the two words from passport covers issued this week on the working assumption that Brexit day would have been 29 March.

The move angered those applying for new passports who were hoping to hold on to an emblem of EU membership.

Susan Hindle Barone, who was one of the first to receive the new-look passports, said: “I was shocked because we haven’t left the EU yet. I assumed we would get the same old passport. It’s not so much about that but it’s the first tangible sign of us leaving the EU.”
