dodgy mums

tags: , , , , ,

A professional person that has known me for at least 2 years had to sign my passport photograph to verify it was a true likeness. A  Geordie friend  of 21yrs that I met at Loughborough University did the honours. She’s currently a full time mum. It didn’t occur to me, silly me, that full time mum’s don’t count as professionals worthy of verifying identity. Even if they have British passports, clean driving licences, no criminal records, like my friend. IPS rejected her. She’s mightily insulted,  that’s insulted that takes about 90 mins to fully detail . I’ll have to track down a friend that’s currently employed, even retired professionals don’t count because obviously they get unreliable and dishonest once they retire….

    That’s disappointing. In retrospect, totally unsurprising. Which makes it even more disappointing, perhaps.

    Looking at the list of acceptable folk (http://www.ips.gov.uk/passport/apply-countersign.asp) I can see Dentists, Opticians, Chiropodists and Nurses, but oddly a Doctor doesn’t count as a professional – while a ‘Christian Scientist Practitioner’ and a ‘Designated Premises Supervisor’ does… what’s going on here?

    Ha hhahaha hah hahahaha haahaaahaaaaaaargh!

    That’s handy to know.

    Also, anybody can set themselves up as a company director and sign passport photos like fury…

    …also ‘professional photographer’ – so, Scaryduck, if I pay you a (nominal) fee to take my photo, then you can sign anything you like…

    It’s a strange list in many ways.
