    The French don’t put the contract to print their passports out to EU-wide tender.
    May and the Tories are telling us they are for remain and they doesn’t care what leavers think.

    The problem is we are still a member of the EU and so are reminded we must abide by the rules. But of course if Mrs May had invoked Art. 50 much earlier we would be nearly out of the EU political club by now.
    Of course if we choose to defy the EU over this issue will they send an army to invade and put down the rebellion ? No I thought not , so what are we waiting for ? Let’s print and be damned.

    Very happy to sign the Mail petition and pass it on.

    I signed at 50,000, tonight it is nearly 153,000 and increasing at around 50,000 a day. With jobs at stake in the North East If the government goes ahead with it’s decision this should be promoted by the party.

    This passport item is covered by two facts, namely Security and Pride ! Yes, PRIDE, and I don’t feel like apologizing for that as there is simply not enough of it these days. We have a Company that has made our passports before, and I see no sense in cutting their turnover and profit, with job losses ! Our passports need to be made in UK/GB, end of story !

    I have signed the petition – but I would be interested to know quite what lies behind the decision in the first place ( and who, exactly, in ‘The Government’ has taken it ?)
    Is it just a matter of price ?
    Were the existing printers offered an opportunity to compete on price?
    Price should anyway not be the only issue – eg do the French printers have an equally good record of delivering on their contractual promises as does the English firm ~which has a track record of doing the job ?
    I wouldn’t be at all surprised if down the line the company awarded the contract has difficulties producing them on time etc..
    PFI nonsense all over again.
