Farage posted a picture of himself on social media on Monday, proudly holding aloft his new passport that now simply reads “United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.” The hardline Brexiteer tweeted: “We got our passports back!”
The new passports were introduced on March 29 – the day Britain was originally meant to leave the bloc – with “All British” passports being issued from late 2019, according to the UK government’s website.
Farage has got his hands on one and appears to look so happy about it, the photo has even prompted a number of pro-EU advocates on Twitter to ask whether he had received the German passport which he reportedly applied for – thanks to his German wife.
While others online questioned why he was so “obsessive” and “pleased by slight tweaks to a travel document” that most people in the UK use twice a year.
