It seems likely HM Passport Office will be issuing us a Passport for Selene within a week or two, from their current statements which seem more likely to be true than their former statements.
We were offered national/worldwide media coverage which, on the advice of my own company’s media/marketing department, we refused. Our own people said to us that we are getting what we want so why carry on the fight. Good point. It’s stressful being interviewed on TV and Radio every day. And we need to get back to our normal lives once this fight is over. If we need more ammo, however it’s available.
If we don’t get what we are being promised from HMPO, national and worldwide coverage is just a phone call away.
As for the future of babies born overseas to British parents, there should no requirement to undergo any bureaucratic (abusive) process to bring the baby home. A DNA test proving the child is yours, if there is any reason for doubt, and the baby is up to aged one year, and a baby should be able to travel with its mother anywhere. A passport and the full bureaucratic process should be required only after one year of age.
There should be no requirement for a passport in any case for a new born. Anything less is an abuse of human rights.
The baby could prove its Britishness without a DNA test if the mother can prove she was pregnant. That could be from medical records, hospital certification, to be shown at passport control. Not exactly difficult. The baby of a British citizen is British.
It is embarrassing for most people in Britain that their Sovereign The Queen is involved in the direct abuse of the human rights of her subjects. I would advise her to make this change very quickly indeed, to indicate that she actually cares about her people. I am invited to attend her son The Prince Of Wales’ 70th birthday celebrations in November. This matter should maybe be dealt with by him before that time, as critical to the Royal family’s future status in the estimation of the people. In fact, it’s an acid test.
Are we allowed to have babies and not be immediately molested by bureaucracy, or is abuse of families going to be an ongoing feature of being British during the coming Carolean Age?
If we are being forced into abusing families by EU Rules, as is no doubt the case with Passports, then here is another very good reason to expedite a proper Brexit ASAP. MPs seem powerless to do anything these days, despite them wanting to help in many cases.
Prince Charles wants to declare a new age under his leadership when he becomes the future King. He supports entrepreneurship, manufacturing, conservation, quality in architecture, organic food and many other great causes Let’s please not forget about families, as, in the end, that is all we are. Everything he desires ultimately depends on the protection of family life from bureaucratic and corporate attack, and the creation of a positive social human environment. Family life should be another central feature of his programme, reducing the political power of bureaucracy, media and corporation.
