2 weeks till Brexit and Defra, at the very least, looks set to be caught with its IT pants down

Yeah, you clearly don't get it.

The blue passports thing was announced by the then immigration minister (Brandon Lewis) as a means of showing the British people that things would be different after brexit. This example of "taking back control" fell a little flat when it was discovered that a) the EU don't actually care what colour our passports are - they could have been blue all along, and b) that a French firm was to be given the contract for printing the passports after brexit.

Remainers also don't generally give a hoot what colour their passports are, but but they're not going to pass up such a ripe opportunity to take the piss.
