"ACTUAL PASSPORT LETTER:

This, apparently, is an actual letter received by the UK Passport Office.

Dear Sirs,
I'm in the process of renewing my passport, and still cannot believe how is it that Sky Television has my address and telephone number and knows that I bought a bleeding satellite dish from them back in 1988, and yet, the Government is still asking me where I was bloody born and on what date.Do you guys do this by hand?
My birth date you have on my pension book.
It's on all the income tax forms I've filed for the past 30 years.
It is on my National Health card.
My driving licence.
My car insurance.
On the last eight damn passports I've had.
It's on all those stupid customs declaration forms I've had to fill out before being allowed off the plane over the last 30 years.

All those insufferable census forms.

Would somebody please take note, once and for all, that my mother's name is Mary Anne, my father's name is Robert and I'd be absolutely astounded if that WOULD ever change between now and when I die!!

I apologise, I'm really pissed off this morning.
Between you an' me, I've had enough of this bullshit!
You send the application to my house, then you ask me for my bleeding address!!
What is going on? Do you have a gang of neanderthal arseholes workin' there?
Look at my damn picture.
Do I look like Bin Laden?

I don't want to dig up Yasser Arafat, for shit sakes. I just want to go and park my arse on some sandy beach somewhere.
And would someone please tell me, why would you give a shit whether I plan on visiting a farm in the next 15 days?
if I ever got the urge to do something wierd to a chicken or a goat, believe you me, you'd be the last feckin people I'd want to tell!

Well, I have to go now,'cause I have to go to the other end of the poxy city to get another feckin copy of my birth certificate, to the tune of £30.
Would it be so complicated to have all the services in the same spot to assist in the issuance of a new passport the same day?
Nooooooooooooo, that'd be too damn easy and maybe make sense.

You'd rather have us running all over the fuckin' place like chickens with our heads cut off, then WE have to find some arsehole to confirm that it's really me on the damn picture - you know, the one where we're not allowed to smile?! (bureaucratic fuckin' morons)
Hey, do you know why we couldn't smile if we wanted to? Because we're totally pissed off!

Signed

An Irate Citizen

P.S. Remember what I said above about the picture and getting someone to confirm that it's me?

Well, my family has been in this country since 1776 ...

I have served in the military for something over 30 years and have had full security clearances over 25 of those years enabling me to undertake highly secretive missions all over the world.

However, I have to get someone 'important' to verify who I am - you know, someone like my doctor ..

WHO WAS BORN AND RAISED IN FRIGGIN` PAKISTAN!

Racist shit ! Maquerading as the common dislike of bureaucracy.
Usual alt right crap, BNP, or is it now the football lads' alliance.
It's not funny Harve, sorry, and I object to you posting it on here.
Some British citizens DO look like Bin Laden, some British citizens WERE born in Pakistan.

and some British citizens have a sense of humour...

You find it "objectionable" do you Beezy? Don't tell me... You're 'offended'.

Tough shit, eh? In days gone by, you would have flounced.

Bring back the good old days...

Just do check and send at the Post Office. You should have it back within a week.

But the point of the above internet post-it is not about getting a passport. The point is to normalise racist banter.
I suspect it wouldn't last 5 minutes on freechat, hence it was posted here.

Blimey Beez, how did you cope in the 70's and 80's?

Like most, I helped change it for the better. Apart from that, I joined the circus.

I hope the poor soul doesn't ever apply for an Indian visa he'd be spitting bile then all right. As for Beezy getting all uptight about that we'll bless. There are enough serious issues to get upset about this makes you look a bit sheltered.
It's a badly written piece intended to be humorous. If it is sponsored by the BNP it's even more laughable. What's the answer ban all typewriters? Or only allow certain educated people to have freedom of speech? Trouble is Beezy with free speech you have to let the bad stuff get written also thought you of all people would support free speech?

What you on about Bees absolutely no racist undertones from me intended thought it was just rather amusing to say the least and a friend had shared it simple as. Why would I put that on freechat  ??
Not related to footie whatsover ??

I'm more likely to see a unicorn in my lifetime than free speech. Careless talk costs lives.
I wasn't getting at you personally Harve, more the nature of the same old crap such as the above doing the rounds online.

Well I would strongly say Bees that there was absolutely no intended racism angle implied from me. I genuinely think it is somewhat amusing and lot of the stuff the author wrote about retaining past records is spot on. Apologies if you thought otherwise but no sweat
