Boris Johnson is facing a cabinet revolt over vaccine passports, having been accused of denying people their basic freedoms.
The Prime Minister announced this month that certificates proving double jabs will be needed to enter indoor venues such as nightclubs from September.
Government advisers have raised concerns that such environments are conducive to super spreading and could see an enormous spike of cases later in the year, but it sparked an enormous reaction, with more than 50 Tory MPs prepared to vote against the misguided plan.
Now Boris Johnson is facing a fresh problem, with some of the opposition reported to be coming from ministers in his own cabinet, who believe the plan was railroaded through by Michael Gove.
One told a newspaper outlet that they were not happy with the government being able to use health data to cut off access to specific segments of society, and they said that this was the sort of thing that Dominic Cummings would support and that once you start doing these things where do you stop? And that they need to tread very carefully, and that there were concerns across the cabinet about denying people their freedoms.
Another added that their concern was that this was destabilising the party, and that a carrot approach was far better than a stick approach, and that they shouldn’t be taking people’s freedoms away, they should be promoting them.
Dominic Raab and Grant Shapps are amongst the senior members of the cabinet to praise businesses who’ve not permitted unvaccinated workers to return to the office, amid concerns the government was promoting a jabs for jobs policy.
Experts have warned companies doing so may face legal action, with fears of a multitude of discrimination allegations, sparking calls for ministers to outlaw such policies, and that a worker who’s forced to have a jab would be suffering an intrusion on their body, which was the advice from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.
According to the group, which represents HR professionals, firms can’t coercively vaccinate their workers or potential employee’s unless legally required to do so.
Care home staff is the only area that so far is subject to compulsory COVID jabs, although reports suggest the government has been looking into other sectors too.
A newspaper outlet reported that the Prime Minister had to abandon proposed rules insisting that university students must have had jabs before attending lectures and halls of residents after questions over its legality were raised by education secretary Gavin Williamson.
We can’t have vaccine passports here for daily domestic use because it’s wrong on so many levels and it will create a two-tier society and will rob millions of even more freedoms than have now been taken away by this government.
And it looks like Boris Johnson is having his strings tightened by his puppet masters, and it just goes to show the coordinated nature of these draconian measures that has been many years in the making.
And you should remember and remember it well that governments will steal your freedoms, place your children into a life of digital ID servitude, destroy your jobs, careers, families and businesses – oh, sorry, they’ve already done that!
