The United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland is preparing to depart the European Union, UK government has been advising the public of what is next to come. Whether they want too or not, pro-EU MPs and remainer’s must accept the democratic will of the people.
The British government has claimed that as of the 30th March 2019, the burgundy passports will no longer feature “European Union” on the front cover of newly printed passports. This is the right move, at the right time. Former Leader of UKIP & Independent MEP for South East England, Nigel Farage underlined the fact that the British passport had become a European Union passport during the EU membership referendum.
Removing “European Union” from our passports symbolises regaining control.
The night before the Brexit referendum back in 2016, Nigel Farage claimed: “We don’t even have a British passport anymore. We’ve got a European Union one, which of course is available for up to 508 million people.”
For the time-being the passports will remain burgundy, without “European Union”. The iconic blue passports are expected to be released sometime in 2019.
The British government released a statement regarding the issue:“Passports printed between 30 March 2019 up until the introduction of the new passport design will be burgundy but will not include the words ‘European Union’ on the front cover. This includes passports issued by the Crown Dependencies and Gibraltar.
“Blue passports will start being issued from late 2019.
“If you renew your passport between late 2019 and early 2020, you’ll be automatically issued with either a blue or burgundy British passport.”
The government even released more info on travelling in the event of a No Deal Brexit: “If you plan to travel to the Schengen area after 29 March 2019, we suggest that you check the issue date and make sure your passport is no older than 9 years and 6 months on the day of travel.
“For example, if you’re planning to travel to the Schengen area on 30 March 2019, your passport should have an issue date on or after 1 October 2009.”
This is the dawn finally starting to break on a united, independent and self-governing nation-state democracy. Our incumbent Tory government must enact the will of the 17.4 million people that voted for Brexit, preferably without a deal.
