We were held for quite a while one day while the staff at Calais discussed the black stamp in one of our Pet Passports. One of them was against accepting it and the other reckoned it would be OK this once. Eventually they let us travel with a warning not to allow black stamps in future.
That's not as easy as it sounds. Many vets in Spain and France will insist that black is perfectly legal and if pushed will say they don't have any other colour, which may or may not be true. They do seem to think I'm a loony for mentioning stamp colour at all.
Probably won't matter soon any way.
Propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated are confident they are acting on their own free will.
