Unbelievable. - from the article -

Last night a Home Office spokesman said: "We do not believe it would
be possible to successfully forge a new passport by doing this.

"The security around the UK passport chip prevents anyone changing or
deleting any of the data or information on the chip, which is what is
required to successfully forge a passport."


They are still this stupid/dump/blind after all this time?

Gobsmacking.
