    "When we initially contacted the Home Office on Wednesday it refused to officially confirm there had been any change in policy, but documents released on Thursday explain the change has been made as part of preparations for the UK to leave the European Union. "

    As expected then. Yet another unforeseen damaging outcome of Brexit, with the misguided gullible fools who voted for it still refusing to accept facts.

    Remind you at all of what’s going on in the US?

    Refusing to accept what facts?

    The hurricane? No. Or the record low level of unemployment among Black Americans?

    I am sure that if the UK wanted to increase the time limits of the passports to 11 years then this can be achieved.
    Hence, there would be no issue with the 10 year with the Schengen Border Code.
    I may be a cynical. However, could it be to punishing the people who voted for the Brexit?
    Blame the Brexit for all our ills.

    The UK could issue 100 year passports if it wanted. But if other countries say the passport has to be issued in the last 10 years, then you won't get into those countries with a passport over 10 years old. Just like some countries won't let you in if your passport expires in less than 6 months.

    Yeah, that'll be it. Really, Brexit has no unforeseen bad consequences whatsoever. When any are pointed out, it's just people wanting to punish Brexit voters and blame them for everything. Really, it's true.

    Why don't we just tell these EU half-wits (Barnier, Juncker etc) that if they want to visit us, their passports must have been issued in the last nine years!

    Because, despite the garbage pushed out by papers like the Express to their elderly readers, the EU has all the power and we have none.

    We are in no position to dictate terms, which is why despite the early claims of those liars Johnson, Gove and Co, we have no deal.

    When are people going to wake up to the fact that this tiny failing island can't dictate terms to the rest of Europe?

    It is for the UK to decide on what passport and border arrangements UK want and agree these if possible or accept what is on offer from whichever country.
    It is about time people realised that we live in a democracy; especially those who lost the Brexit vote.
    Personally, did not want Brexit, but majority, even a small one decided on Brexit.
    We made the choice.
    So like it or lump it.

    It is for foreign countries to decide what their entry criteria are.

    Oh I see, that's what living "in a democracy" means does it? When the result doesn't go your way, you need to !!!!!! and never mention any bad things that happen as a result of that democratic vote?

    Better tell Labour supporters to !!!!!! and stop criticising anything the Tories do, because they won the election. And obviously, should Corbyn win the next election, no Tories will point out the mess he makes of the economy, oh no, after all it's democracy and that means the winning side is immune from any criticism.

    Have you told MSE to remove the article? It implies a bad thing happened as a result of a democratic vote. Can't have that, can we?
