Kick back and talk about anything you like in here. NOT THAT! :) no really, I make it a point never to censor or delete anything.

Waiter! I’ll have a tall half-skinny half-1 percent extra hot split quad shot (two shots decaf, two shots regular) latte with whip please!

Just got me new Passport, Yay! ... however....

Post by Ian Pedlar » Wed Nov 08, 2017 4:47 pm

I was wondering,

What checks do they carry out before they issue one?

The answer is:

We're not telling you, Na, na na naa na!

This link is to HM Passport office's reply to one who asked:
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/ ... d.pdf.html

Fair enough I s'pose

Ooh, on the website: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com
Sounds like an interesting website ... what are you getting for Christmas, have you been naughty? :ymtongue:

stick the word pedlar in and you get some interesting results like:
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/ ... ming-73415

Well, and lots of others, just stick the word 'pedlar' in and do a search.

Oh, and stop calling them licenses! They are certificates, not licenses, the local gov would love you to call them licenses then they can charge for them!

It's a pretty cool website! That https://www.whatdotheyknow.com and seems to consist of a lot of members of the public asking honest questions and a lot of harassed government officials trying to field shielding pew-pew laser shields to deflect questions that they are forced to answer, in 'legalese' without losing their jobs :) great fun!

Erm... Dear Mr DonkyBollocks, yes we can see that this is a valid question and under the freedom of information act FOI, of 20... something or other we can answer err, uhm... err.. fuck! Leave me alone will ya! I'm just a poorly paid government official and just want to get home to my wife and kids for fucks sake! fuck off!
