The words 'Queen' and 'scrapped' should not even be in the same sentence, but that is what those faceless bureaucrats in OUR Foreign Office want to do to our passport.
It was bad enough that we lost our beloved blue book recognized all around the globe, to that insipid little pink (well nearly) booklet we have to lug around these days, but to even think about removing Her Maj from the front page is tantamount to treason. And those wankers in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, should be paraded down Whitehall whilst being tarred and feathered by all and sundry.
On a good note though, common sense has prevailed when the Europricks announced that they would no longer pursue us Brits over the use of Imperial measurements. That's worth having a good ol' British pint for.
