Gerald's comment: I am not sure if this is progress but it fits in the worldwide re-alignment in issuing offices for British Passports using heightened security measures.

Confucious may have said: "Don't be too easily hurt or offended. Take a deep breath. Count to 10. Log off and make a cup of tea, or a POT of tea. Don't answer until an hour from now, or tomorrow!"
