"Give me what I want, or I'll set fire to my own arsehole" is pretty much the Government's Brexit strategy, so it may work with passports too.

Part of me instinctively wishes to class this a theft, but as already discussed it would very likely fail for dishonesty (either by means of Ghosh, or by s. 2), and possibly in addition the intention to permanently deprive. Although the extent to which s. 2 would exempt someone's conduct if they were subsequently to become aware that they did not in fact have a right to take the property could raise an interesting question; if appropriation is a continuing act, would this become a theft?
