Getting Babies Through Their First Border Control

This idea that you've got to show your passport to get NHS treatment worries me.

So for maternity wards - how do unborn babies apply? If their parents apply for the passport, do they leave name, sex and date of birth blank? Do they have ultrasounds instead of photos? And at precisely what point are they requested to show the passport to be allowed to be born?

And if, when they're born, it turns out they're illegally in the maternity ward, how are they gonna be sent back?

It's gonna be a logistical nightmare, this one.

  1. Remind me, how much does it cost to get a passport these days?
