Yesterday, according to Nigel Farage, the UK took a step towards “becoming a proper country again”.
No, we didn’t curb foodbank use, see a rise in the value of Sterling or negotiate a trade deal with the EU better than the one we already have – we got blue passports.
All for a bargain £490 million.

Upon the announcement of the news people asserted their new-found individuality and national identity by lauding the move in some of the strongest terms imaginable.
We’ll take these guys up on their bet but we’ll hold out to see if Sterling bottoms out anymore first.
Mine is due for renewal in summer 2019, but you can bet your bottom Sterling that I’ll hold fire until the Blue ones are issued!!

A whopping 17 million Brits have never even known a blue passport, never mind missed one.

For the last 30 years all I have dreamt of is having a blue passport, nothing else that is going on in the whole wide world matters.
I`ve always felt a sense of shame on having to have an EU passport it made me feel like a state member and not a free man in a sovereign nation. The hairy bag, Mail Online commenter

Bit of advice Mr Welshman, do not ever test this theory.
Still have my old blue one. It survived floating in a duffel bag full of water inside Niagara Falls and would likely take a bullet for me. So welcome back old blue. Expat Welshman, Mail Online commenter
We can have burgundy passport burning ceremonies. V Bale, Mail Online commenter
Don’t tell Shoeman that one of the three companies currently bidding for the contract to make the new blue passport includes a manufacturer based in Germany.
Let’s hope it’s printed in the UK, we’ve got to start giving work to this country now and buying more things made in the UK.
TrueBrit will have plenty of time to practice his suave lines as he queues to pas through.
