ICYMI, there's a petition asking the Government to consider how French - as an EU lanaguage - has no place on new UK passports post-Brexit.
Created by Richard Bernden, the petition states: "The vote to leave the EU means people voted to Take Back Control. Control of their borders, their culture and their language."
And, according to said petition, the fact that mottos like "Dieu et mon droit" have existed in England for ages is "irrelevant".
But, if you're wondering where the flaw in the petition is, this sums it up really.
Yep, according to The Oxford English Dictionary, the term passport itself comes from French words. They are the French for "to pass" - passer - and also the French for seaport, which is port.
Which means some people really can't get their heads around the petition.
There's a petition to remove French words from our passport.
I assume they know we'd have to remove the French derived word "passport" too.

A post #Brexit campaign to remove all French words from the British passport? So the word passport then???

Someone has a petition to get French words off the UK passport! 'Dieu Et Mon Droit' etc. The country plunges into new levels of ignorance!

These Twitter users are pointing out how, actually, there's a whole host of French words the petitioners might wanna look out for.
@MissLauraMarcus - Satire, remove, cover and passport are all French words, I think......?

If the petition gets 10,000 signatures, the Government has to respond to it - 100,000 and it will be considered for debate in Parliament.
So, with only 170 signatures so far, the petition has a long way to go yet it's fair to say...
But that doesn't mean we'll be getting over the irony of the petition any time soon.
