We all forget how lucky we our to have our British passports. And not because they’ve now been fitted with nifty computer chips, but because they can take us almost anywhere in the world without foreign immigration batting an eyelid. Our passports are magic keys in a world with so many impenetrable borders, which enable us to drift through Africa to Asia, and back through Latin America without a care in the world. Sure, there are limits — we probably can’t take a nice summer’s vacation to North Korea — but we have plenty of other military dictator friends who’ll happily let us in.
