Sling­ing the blues

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

The row over who makes our new UK blue pass­port – Bri­tain’s De La Rue or a Franco-Dutch firm – ob­scures a more crit­i­cal is­sue.

In less than a year, we all lose our Euro­pean cit­i­zen­ship, mak­ing travel on the con­ti­nent more dif­fi­cult and the pass­port less ac­cept­able glob­ally.

No won­der Brits in North­ern Ire­land, in­clud­ing self-styled Loy­al­ists, are queu­ing up for Ir­ish pass­ports to sus­tain their Euro iden­tity.

I wish I had an Ir­ish fam­ily. Mine is from the Scot­tish borders. Wrong bor­der, Routers!
