BBC NEWS | UK | Ex-Army officer 'denied passport'

A former Army officer who served in Iraq and Kosovo is being denied a British passport, his family has said.
Zimbabwe-born Captain Warwick Strong was turned down because he was out of the UK on duty, his father Colonel Jeremy Strong claimed.
Passport applicants must have lived in the UK for five years, without leaving for more than 90 days in a year.

Snarking - Verb - Originally sniffing bicycle seats - Now extended to sniffing recently vacated office chairs for sexual pleasure.

Should be like the Yanks - serve in the Forces get passport and citizenship full stop.

Service Guarantees citizenship!

We shall tie down our enemies where ever we find them. On horseback, in the Police, in Politics, in Churches, in the British Embassy in Romania.

This is our country now. Move over.
