Yeah it is fucking shit.

We asked the guard to stamp Ferris Jr’s UK passport, “no mate, I don’t have any stamps, I work the baggage and been called up here at short notice, sorry!”

...Mrs Ferris didn’t get a stamp in her Canadian passport either so we are still unclear if we (inadvertently) did an immigration crime.

Did you get an exit stamp? Immigration staff generally don’t stamp you out unless they can find a visa and entry stamp. Rarely, they’ll ignore it, some will demand a bribe and some will throw you into a secret prison and torture you until you admit to being a secret Nazi/communist agent. Most will just keep you in a very dull holding room for the best part of a day while they straighten it out.

I have a British passport and just got back to the country yesterday morning after being away for a month. Landed at Heathrow. They've now merged all passport types into a single line. So British passport holders were lumped in with all the foreign filth. Took me an hour and a half to get through. Lines snaking back for miles, health and safety officers moving people off the stairs.

It was funny because there were loads of British people muttering and mumbling. I assume considering the timing they, like me, were experiencing post-Brexit passport control for the first time. Is this just temporary? Have they really not bothered to make a separate line for British passport holders?

one wonders if it's really worth being a brexiteer account for like six months with under a 1000 followers just to deliver that viral coup de grace

No exit stamp, just checked. I think we got one over on Heathrow security

Hahaha thatd be so funny

That said i dont think most Brexiteers care very much about Phidias or classical sculpture in general

Also recall couple of years ago when the BM lent part of them to St Petersburg which really pissed Greece off

wouldnt it be ironic if the ultimate act of democracy lost us the prime surviving art objects of the city state that first practiced democracy

i was always generally against repatriating the parthenon sculptures because it's not like they're going back where they belong on the building, it's just to another museum and the Greeks will probably just get food on them or something

but now anything that embarrasses this shitty little country anymore globally is fine by me

Be more ironic if it lost us democracy itself, like the Tories definitely want, wouldn't it?

The elgin lot should have gone back to Greece decades ago, they were practically stolen in the first place by the british (see almost all UK non native historical treasures pre 1900).

We have an area where I live called Elgin, but the natives choose to call it 'Eljin'. Does my nut in and I refuse to call it that despite the pitying/derisive looks I get.

I presume they pronounce marbles just the same but it's never come up in 16 years.

I’ve no opinion on that sort of thing, it’s the pogs I’m after.

It can be part of the trade deal. If it ends up being no-deal though, the Americans get to chlorinate all the pogs.

If "balls on the table" means "heads on their open necks" then I agree.  They can't go out looking like that.
