It's not the first time Mr Cameron has been forgetful - last year he unwittingly left his eight-year-old daughter Nancy behind after a pub lunch with family and friends.

Wait, the PM flies commercial?

There was talk of providing the PM with his own personal plane a couple of governments ago (the press, witty as ever, dubbed it "Blair Force One") but it never got off the ground.

And now I must kill myself for making that godawful pun.

He should have said "don't you know who I am, just Google me!"
 
2013-06-02 02:14:57 PM  
OK, so an aide forgot to get the passport. Let's immediately use it as an excuse to remind the public of an embarassing mishap that occurred a year ago, and then, for kicks, at the bottom of the webpage, include public opinion polls to remind the public that the PM isn't very popular anyway!

That's exactly the fine quality reporting I expect from the Sun.

Can we apply this to BOB, AF1 and instead of a passport, make it a REAL birth certificate?

Good he got that passport.

Other wise the headline would be the whining tale of reporters forced to stay in England instead of jetting off the Ibitha. The Sun wouldn't be there.

I'll bite, only because it's a boringass afternoon. What, pray tell, would you consider a "REAL" birth certificate?

/Trick question. Considering that the birth certificates "BOB" (seriously, wtf?) has released to the public are considered legally valid by everyone whose opinion on the subject actually matters, and the only "evidence" of forgeries is based on idiots not knowing how .pdf files work, there's NOTHING Obama could release that would convince the birthers that he's a citizen. Because birthers are racists who cannot accept that a black man named Barack Hussein Obama is a Real American.

That's like a farmer who buys a farm, so he can live in the barn with the other animals and dine on hay and pig slop.

You don't fight your whole life to finally call the shots, only to live no better than your livestock.

In spite of all those times he's wittingly tried to leave Nick Clegg behind.

So the Queen doesn't need a passport, because they're issued in her name.

In the US, passports are issued in the name of the Secretary of State, so...does the Secretary of State carry a passport? I know the Predident does.
 
2013-06-02 04:24:19 PM  
You know what, I don't care if you're Born Again Jesus. You literally can't board this flight without a passport. Period.

Prediction: all those who prevented him from boarding still get sacked.

They are not issued in the name of the Secretary of State - they are issued by the State Department.

No, in the US they are issued by the State Department, and thus under the remit of the Secretary of State, but not in the name of the SoS.  They are issued in the name of the United States of America, which entrusts the SoS and his/her minion to do the scut work, but the SoS is not the ultimate font of law in the US

On the other hand, the Queen is - in an extremely technical and rules-lawyerly way - the ultimate font of all governmental power in Britain.  If you were to bear down on her about it, she can simply grab any piece of paper, declare it her official passport, and you can't actually dispute the matter - hell, she could grab a turd and declare it her official passport.

Right, but the text on a US passport states:

"The Secretary of State of the United States of America hereby requests..."

so, couldn't the Secretary of State just, you know, request in person? :)
 
2013-06-02 07:25:16 PM  
Lord Dimwit:
"The Secretary of State of the United States of America hereby requests..."


Just requests? Try harder:

"Her Britannic Majesty's Secretary of State requests and requires in the name of Her Majesty all those whom it may concern to allow the bearer to pass freely without let or hindrance and to afford the bearer such assistance and protection as may be necessary."

Lay down the smack to those foreign types.

The funny thing is that if the UK would have joined Schengen, he wouldn't have needed a passport, just a valid ID. Karma?

So the Queen could have popped along for the trip and simply declared Cameron to be her official passport.

Quite how the secret service allowed this to happen is pretty mindboggling. The UK doesn't go in for the the same level of security as the US.... but for an 8 year old missing for 40 minutes would terrify any parent, you'd think that the 8 year old daughter of the PM missing would mean COBRA is called.
