According to a new report, the UK government is preparing to announce that football fans who haven’t received a full COVID-19 vaccination will be banned from entering stadiums as a two-tier society of the jabbed and the jabbed-not moves closer.
Yesterday’s ‘freedom day’ in the UK was supposed to see a lifting of all coronavirus restrictions, but Prime Minister Boris Johnson moved swiftly to pour cold water on the notion with the announcement that nightclubs and other venues where large crowds gather will bar entry to those who haven’t had the vaccine.
This led to speculation that the measure could be extended to pubs and other venues, with ministers refusing to rule it out.
However, some nightclub owners are vowing not to enforce the rules, arguing that it will make their businesses untenable as they operate on low profit margins that would be wiped out by unvaccinated people being kept away.
Now it’s being reported that football clubs are also likely to be told that only supporters who can prove they’ve had the jab will be allowed to enter stadiums after the season starts later this summer.
“Plans are being drawn up that will require football fans to prove they have had two doses of Covid vaccination before they can attend matches from the end of September,” reports the Daily Mail.
“First they came for the nightclubs, and I didn’t say anything…”https://t.co/lKc4h0knF7— Maajid أبو عمّار (@MaajidNawaz) July 20, 2021
