Why No Symbolism?

blue-passport

Responding to a written question from Julian Knight MP, Robert Goodwill, the immigration minister hinted that the blue passport will be back “We are considering potential changes to the UK passport after the UK has left the European Union. At this early stage we have not undertaken a detailed cost benefit analysis or made any decisions about what a future UK passport might look like.”

Elsewhere David Davis was pressed on the return of the blue passport by Andrew Rosindell “Can you make some small symbolic action to show that you are serious? Some of us have jitters. Could we have our blue passports back rather than the pink things?”

Davis disappointed “Attractive as the idea is, I’m not in the business of symbolism, I’m in the business of delivering,” he told Rosindell and the rest of the foreign affairs select committee. If not Davis than it must be a job for Boris, who whilst he is formally the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs is informally the minister for cheering us all up. Why can’t Boris start re-issuing the traditional blue passport from the day after Article 50 is triggered?

Quote of the Day

Dominic Cummings says a second referendum would smash the party system…

“… the logical corollary will be to morph into a new party and fight the next election ‘to implement the promises we made in the referendum because the MPs have proved they can’t be trusted’. “
