    From Poland via Gemalto, a Frecnh company. Just think of the benefits- all those Poles rushing home to make them. Double benefit!

    Why do people want the blue passport "back"?

    I've never seen a blue passport. My old passports (and I've still got them) were black, as were everybody else's that I know of.

    Nope, they were very dark blue. Anyway there was never any rule saying we had to have burgundy ones anyway.

    It wasn't a rule, the EU did however recommend the layout and colour.

    There wasn't - but people thought there was and that was good enough for them.

    It's a bit more than a recommendation for Eurozone countries though isn't it?

    The EU runs on consensus. How could it be otherwise? It is a voluntary association of nations. They agree the rules.

    Silly filly.

    The UK was, until recently, one of the largest and most influential members. France still is. Germany still is.

    The EU was purposely designed so no one member could dominate all the others.

    Quite unlike, for example, Parliament or the UK.
