Regardless of how they voted in the EU Referendum fair minded and patriotic people should demand their political representatives ensure that our passport be made in the UK.

This is a treacherous situation as the French most certainly would not tolerate their passports being made in another country, nor the Germans, Spanish, and Italians.

Can you imagine the Americans having their passports made in a foreign country?  Are we to become the laughing stock of the world?

Those who try and trivialise the issue and muddy the waters with their inane talk of colour and free trade remind me of those ‘Cowboy and Indian’ films many moons ago and the retort: ‘White man speak with forked tongue!’

How outrageous when a person of the calibre of Mr Blair declares: ‘The national humiliation is we think the colour of our passports defines our sense of nationhood.’

Let us put such people to the sword by going online and signing the petition while lobbying our political representatives to stand up for the UK.
