Or a EU directive that allows any EU country to extradite anyone from another EU country without them having a right to trial or see the charges first.
How can it cost £72?
My issue is with the "everything costs more than it should" culture we have now.
£72 for a passport................ its too much
So, you're problem is that you have an arbitrary idea of what things cost which has not kept pace with the 21st century. As far as I am concerned, £3.00 is "too much" for a pint of beer...
Rudeboy - extradition has nothing to do with whether you hold a passport. For what it is worth, all British citizens were out of Guantanamo some while ago, and we are arguing about whether British resident non-citizens were also owed anything by government. Again, would you rather be in Guantanamo with a British passport, or with a Pakistani one (which I suspect is admittedly cheaper...)
Any one of you can of course get a passport from St. Vincent & The Grenadines for US$250,000 of investment in the sugar cane diversification trust plus processing fees, if £72 for a British one strikes you as excessive.
The passport price is a tax on leaving the country.
As UK citizens paying into the system through tax etc we have the right to protection. That is nothing to do with the fact we have bought a passport or not. The £72 for a passport is outrageous. Check the costs of passports in the rest of the world. The UK is one of the most expensive.
The day I can swap my UK passport for Citizen of Europe passport can't come soon enough
Basic Adult passport is about equal to about 90 GBP in Australia, and we don't have nearly as many embassies abroad. stop your whining.
