and then there is this.

Labour's shadow employment secretary Emily Thornberry told the BBC it was "exasperating".

It certainly is, Emily, but not in the way you mean.

Just another example of the pathetic PC obsessed culture that we live in!

For the majority of the last 500 years, females have been treated as second class citizens.

Little wonder that the passport design depicts a majority of male achievers.

Going forward I'm sure the gender balance will be more even.

Couldnt care less we are all citizens of Europe anyway, does it really matter what the design is or even if it says British, hardly any place you go now does any body really look at it. Lets make it bright pink with flowers on the front at least border guards might look at it.

I'm quite proud of my passport, with its 'United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland' gold lettering on the front, and all that stuff about Her Britannic Majesty inside. It's called patriotism, and yes, to me it does matter.

Does anyone really look at it? They certainly do - you try getting into China/Russia/America and a dozen other countries I could mention without anyone looking at your passport.
