Twelve months ago it would have been unthinkable that any public figure would be suggesting that people would need to show their vaccination records before entering a shop, or any public place, but that’s where we are in Britain today.
Just when you thought Covid-authoritarianism (and authoritarianism is actually putting it mildly), couldn’t get any worse, it just did.
This week we’ve seen a number of politicians and high-profile media figures promote the idea of mandatory vaccine passports. And not just for international travel. On Sunday, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who, I kid yet not, once wrote a book entitled ‘The Assault on Liberty’, refused to rule out vaccine passports to allow entry to supermarkets and pubs. ‘It is under consideration’ he said.
While most normal people reacted with disgust to the suggestion that we should need to prove that we’ve been vaccinated for Covid in order to buy half a dozen eggs and a pint of milk in the local Tesco’s, Good Morning Britain’s motor-mouth presenter Piers ‘For Fears’ Morgan who has played a massive part in stoking Covid hysteria, couldn’t curb his enthusiasm for the idea.
Love the idea of covid vaccine passports for everywhere: flights, restaurants, clubs, football, gyms, shops etc.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) February 14, 2021
It’s time covid-denying, anti-vaxxer loonies had their bullsh*t bluff called & bar themselves from going anywhere that responsible citizens go.
