UK will make passports blue as conservative MP complained on burgundy ones


A Tory MP who claimed the UK had been “humiliated” by the adoption of new dark red passports (though he believes them to be pink) reached his goal and the passports will be blue. Since Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, some nationalist campaigners have been urging the government to “restore” the country’s blue passports, which were phased out in 1988 in favour of the EU standard colour – dark red, burgundy.The government has officially confirmed last week that it would be redesigning the passports after Brexit to make passports blue again three decades after. The news come soon enough for Conservative MP Andrew Rosindell, who claims the country has been “humiliated” by the European passport as its color was strongly associated with LGBT community for him. Mr Rosindell said the decision to change the colour is “a great Christmas present for those who care about our national identity”. He added: “The fanatical Remainers hate it, but the restoration of our own British passport is a powerful symbol that Britain in Back!”
