Grins banned from passport pics

If you look like your passport photograph, you're not happy enough to travel!

In the latest repugnant diktat by the UKPS, smiling on passport photos is banned. As are glasses, squinting, and "long fringes".

Presumably the biometric scanners can't cope with lipstick, eye liner or blusher either!

Eh, better leave out the false teeth too. (Can't help the squint without my glasses.)
I'm surprised DB lets us out of the country at all. Let alone back in.
