POUNDLAND has launched blue and burgundy British passport covers for leave and remainer holidaymakers to use after Brexit.

Remainers have been given the opportunity to show off their love for the European Union with the iconic burgundy covers.

Meanwhile leave voters can now get an earlier taste of Brexit with the blue covers as the British government looks set to delay leaving the EU.

The burgundy cover being sold by Poundland 30 days before the UK’s scheduled departure from the bloc on March 29 bears the tag line “still proud to be European”.

The blue cover marks the colour that British passports will change to after Brexit and discards the words “European Union”.

Instead this cover, and real British passport covers in future, reads “United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland”.

Poundland’s Marketing Controller Mark Pym says: “Whether you’re a Europhile or a Europhobe, Poundland’s got you covered.”

With Prime Minister Theresa May recently admitting Brexit could be delayed if politicians don’t back her deal, leave fans may be looking to snap up blue covers at Poundland.

And it is understand that new British passports issued between March 29 and October will initially continue to have the EU burgundy colours.

The words “European Union” at the top of the front cover will still be removed, but the new colour will not come into effect until beyond October.

Millions of Brits will be using their passports this summer as they head off on their summer holidays.

Daily Star Online reported yesterday how the pound to euro exchange rate rocketed to a 21-month-high – resulting in impressive rates for Brit holidaymakers to cash in on.
