Probably Gerry M, it's either that or they're hoping it may lead to more export business!

Gerry, when I saw that someone had started a thread 'Avoidable Contact', I assumed it referred to Viva GT.

Boris FTW. I'm eagerly anticipating a working majority to let the country get on with life and prosperity outside of the suffocating EU. I will be doing my little bit to make it happen. The doomsayers may like to ponder on this.

Bob and Viva, you're so right! Both of you. I could post on the relevant thread because on Sunday I got a 30" penalty for "some" contacts… WTF, it was fun and what are thirty seconds in a man's live? Noting at all.

What I see is that for a new passport I had to go to town house for my finger prints, fill a much complicated online form, wait several weeks and go back to town house to pick up the new passport. Not forgetting that the mandatory pictures must be taken by an officially registered "artist"! C'est ça la France d'aujourd'hui les mecs! Un truc qui marche mal et doucement!

Good grief.

Last time I renewed my Passport I realised I was just short of a 6 month period of effectiveness needed for a trip to Munich. So much for free movement.

So I popped into one of those "take it yourself" booths, got the snaps, and the existing passport and the required form from the Post Office (iirc), popped over to Peterborough (nearest place to me and an opportunity to enjoy a road I had not driven for some years (ruined by straightening, speed cameras and traffic calming along with a greatly increased level of traffic, most of it dawdling). Had a quick meeting to hand over the paperwork and the excessive fee and allow people to check that it was me.

Then advised that it should take about 5 hours as expected so I had a chance to visit the centre of Peterborough - pretty much where the offices are located. Not worth the shoe leather.

However the Cathedral just around the corner is quite interesting and rather splendid whether one has any religious interest or not.

Wandered back to the office. The time overran a bit but finally got the docs, back to the car in the car park across the road and a drive home covering a few really nice driving roads with a slight detour to make it more interesting.

The Passport Office location helped with options to fill the time and so the day was not entirely wasted in that respect. I'm sure the process could have been handled more quickly on the day but it was pretty much as promised so can't complain other than having the travel costs and paying extra for the 'faster' service.

I had a similar trip to Peterborough a few years ago when a mate made a last minute decision that "we" were going to the Race of Champions in Bankock (and he was paying, so I couldn't say no). Due to the time of year I spent some of my time Christmas shopping (for obvious reasons, Mrs V had to be extra spoilt this year) and did pop into The Cathedral, but still spent a lot of time waiting for it to be time to collect my passport, but I got it in the end.

When Teresa May called a General election in 2017, she and virtually everyone else expected a Conservative landslide, the Labour party with a deeply unpopular leader in disarray, the liberals non-starters, it was a slam dunk.

But then came the Manchester bombing, followed by the knife attacks in London, and the whole emphasis shifted from Brexit to domestic issues.
Corbyn cynically seized the initiative and attacked the government on the economy, 'the cuts'. The NHS, Police, Security etc, with the result that May ended up with a minority government, and a resurgent Labour Party causing her a lot of trouble over Brexit.

I have always been surprised that no pundit, commentator, politician, ever picked up on this aspect of the election, simply saying the Mrs May had overestimated the Brexit appeal to voters.

I only hope we do not get a repeat this time around.

There was also a serious lack of campaigning around the country. When she did venture out she was an unmitigated disaster. No personality and no vision.

If there's one thing this version has, it's a few characters who will look good on the hustings.

Also the policing and NHS has almost been solved as far as campaigning goes since Johnson has already allocated some serious sums. Where it'll come from is another matter, but it does kind of put a lid on the opposition's first line of attack.

New Passport has just been delivered, it's the same size and colour as the old one, but doesnt have European Union as the top line, just the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Hmm.


But what happens if Brexit goes belly up at some point during the life of the passport? Will you need to renew again to get the newly "Correct" wording?

Doubtful the electronic info works all round the world. The EU thing was never a requirement AFAIK just a bit of team working. Unlike number plates.

Bauble WTF do you expect someone to do? It's an election contest, not an "after you Claude" tea party. Nothing "cynical" about it but the man was actually behaving as the Leader of the Opposition for once.

The Opposition should oppose, question, examine and expose, otherwise we don't have a government but a committee - or worse!

And I say this as someone who sees Mr Corbyn as the second most odious Jeremy in the world
