Boris Johnson is facing a new assault on his plan for COVID passports to go to the pub, amid claims ministers are attempting to strongarm young people into getting vaccinated.
The government is putting together a policy where an NHS app would be utilised as evidence people have had jabs, or been newly tested.
People who don’t have immunity could be required to test negative twice over three days to get the freedom to associate freely in pubs and restaurants for 24 hours.
But the blueprint, being driven by Michael Gove within Whitehall, is coming under extreme fire from Conservatives who view it as an unacceptable invasion of civil freedoms, and government sources have indicated that they believe the policy will focus minds amongst the younger people, who are expected to be far more hesitant to get jabs.
But Tories told a news outlet that instead of coercion, ministers should look at giving that generation £100 each to get immunised.
Senior MP Steve Baker, deputy chair of the lockdown sceptic COVID Recovery Group, is vowing an attempt to wreck the despicable policies, which are estimated to be set out by Boris Johnson next month.
Steve Baker told Times Radio that the scheme that they intend, as he understood it, is that people would have to have two lateral flow tests about three days apart, and then they could apply to the government for 24 hours of freedom, and he believed if people just mull over how that would work, and how it would feel. That to have one day where you could go and enjoy yourself, you have to have two tests over three days, and through that period, you’d be under the full weight of whatever the restrictions were.
And he said that was a pretty despicable way to live, and it was a way to live from which he would recoil in utter horror, applying to the government for 24 hours of freedom after a couple of tests.
Although uptake amongst older generations in the United Kingdom has been remarkably high, and Israel has reported a definite drop off in the under 35s attending appointments.
A UK government source told a news outlet that the COVID passports proposals could help address the problem, and they said that if the argument on health grounds doesn’t wash because young people believe they’re going to be fine and their grandparents and parents have all taken it, the most effective nudge is that they’re not going to be able to be as free as they’d like and that not being allowed into pubs may focus minds.
Sir Desmond Swayne told MailOnline that primary law could be required to allow pubs to discriminate on the grounds of health characteristics.
But evidently, the vaccine is so great and so safe that they have to bribe people with £100 of taxpayer money to take it, and it’s a very sad day when they have more freedom in Russia than we do in the United Kingdom, and this parliament is an authoritarian disgrace and will go down in history as the worst we’ve ever had.
This is a disgrace to our country and everyone who gave their lives for freedom, and having the first jab is the thin end of a pretty long and dystopic wedge.
Once jabbed, your immune system will never be the same again, and then the government sit back and let the vaccine created immunizer attack any version of coronavirus, and of course, we know there will be mutants.
You will then be pressured into having the next vaccine for the new variant, though it will then be four months out of date, and getting your passport updated so you can live your life.
Chris Whitty said that the preponderance of us have COVID mildly or even without symptoms, so the risk of all of us taking an experimental gene treatment is insane and sinister.
