Dominic Raab insisted vaccine passports could be needed to get into pubs and supermarkets in the United Kingdom.
The Foreign Secretary contradicted a string of other government statements as he said the idea was under deliberation.
The comments will provoke outrage from Tories who are already genuinely alarmed about the way the pandemic has pounded civil freedoms.
Ministers have revealed that work is underway on vaccine passports that could allow foreign travel to resume, with Spain the latest country to say it’s ready to welcome Brits who’ve had jabs.
But the government has repeatedly said such documents will not be introduced in the United Kingdom, suggesting it would be discriminatory, and Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said just last week that the move was not on the cards.
The dramatically different position from Dominic Raab came in an interview on LBC radio and pressed repeatedly on whether vaccine passports could be needed to get into pubs and supermarkets in this country, he said it was something that hadn’t been ruled out, and that it was under deliberation, but that of course, they’ve got to make it workable.
Dominic Raab said the modalities and mechanisms of how people could prove they’ve been vaccinated were all being looked at, and he said that they’ve got to know that the document that is being presented is something that they can rely on.
The comments came amid claims larger City firms are expecting to start using digital health passports from next month to help get workers back into offices, and COVID 19 testing firm Prenetics has signed deals with about 100 companies, including investment banks based at Canary Wharf in London to help get staff back to work safely.
Workers using its Digital Health Passport will download an app onto their mobile phones, which will store results of their COVID tests and vaccine certification when they’ve had their jabs.
In the meantime, Spain’s tourism minister has stoked hopes Britons could go on holiday this summer with vaccine passports.
Fernando Valdes has reportedly raised the possibility that travel could resume within months due to the success of the UK’s rollout.
He also played down the idea that holidaymakers would have to isolate when they arrived in Spain, saying there are other means of curbing the spread.
The optimistic comments emerged as the government steps up work on a method of vaccine passports that could free those who’ve had jabs from the draconian restrictions on travel.
But COVID vaccine passports are all part of the plan, and everyone will be forced to have the jab in the end or stay locked up at home – welcome to the new normal.
It’s criminal to force people into having a novel, experimental vaccine that’s already caused some deaths, and all so we can just go to the superstore or go on holiday.
Passports just to live our daily lives is Orwellian and dystopic, in the extreme, but this is actually what our future society is going to look like!
I’m not even sure why they’re even considering this line of action. After all, if the vaccine is as good as they say it is, and everyone who wants it can have it, what risk do the people who chose not to be vaccinated pose to the ones who have been vaccinated?
This is particularly sinister and must be stopped in its tracks.
Now this all sounds about control, and they’ve managed to convince so many people to rush for this vaccine, and to get the sheeple to do as they want them to do, and now these people will submit to anything they’re told to, which will help the government force it on us all.
