Post-Brexit Britain announced on Saturday that new blue passports for the country will be issued starting the coming March 2020.\r\n\r\nThe step comes to mark Britain's complete departure from the European Union (EU).\r\n\r\nThe blue passports were first introduced in 1921 but were phased in 1988 upon requests of the EU members to harmonize designs.\r\n\r\nOn his part, Home Secretary Priti Patel commented, \u201cThe iconic blue passport will be entwined once again with our national identity.\u201d\r\n\r\nShe added, "<a href="https:\/\/www.theguardian.com\/politics\/2020\/feb\/22\/blue-brexit-passports-issued-redesign-eu" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Brexit<\/a> gave us a great opportunity to restore our own identity and forge a new path in the world."\r\n\r\nThe new blue and golden design will contain pink emblems from Britain, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales on the back cover.\r\n\r\nThe <a href="https:\/\/see.news\/analysis-what-happens-after-brexit\/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">United Kingdom<\/a> officially exited the European Union on January 31, 2020, known as Brexit, following three and a half years of fierce political talks and economic concerns.\r\n\r\nThe Brexit ended 48 years of an EU membership which somehow affected the British national identity, institutions, legal systems, and economic and financial sectors.\r\n\r\nAlthough nearly 52 percent of Britons are happy for the result, there have been many doubts over various issues; most importantly the food prices, Eurostar services at airports, fate of Britons in other EU countries, fate of the other EU nationals living in the UK\u2026etc.\r\n\r\nBoth the UK and the EU will keep talks for eleven months so that they can reach consensus and solutions to those issues.\r\n\r\nThe Cabinet Office announced the shut down of the Brexit ministry, headed by Stephen Barclay who is set to receive 17,000 Sterling golden goodbye. The government rushed to reassure the ministry\u2019s employees, that it would help them find other positions.\r\n\r\nThe UK does not need to worry about taking part in any European summits from now on. The British MPs won\u2019t return to their European Parliament\u2019s seats including the Brexit Party\u2019s Leader Nigel Farage whose joy of leaving the EU was described as \u201cindependence of Britain.\u201d\r\n\r\nDuring the transitional period, which ends by 31 December, the UK will follow the EU rules without having the right to make a choice or oppose a rule.\r\n\r\nBritain released a commemorative currency for \u201cBrexit\u201d, bearing the slogan \u201cPeace, prosperity, and friendship with all countries\u201d, accompanied by the date Britain left the European Union, Jan.31, 2020. It is expected that about three million coins will be traded across Britain starting Saturday, with another seven million pieces added later this year.
