Vaccine Passports - The Slippery Slope

Vaccine Passports - The Slippery Slope

Although not surprised, my heart sank on the 1st of September 2021 when I read that UKGov is pushing ahead with vaccine passports when attending nightclubs and other venues in which there is "gathering" of people:

Government to continue with plans for Covid vaccine passports in nightclubs, Manchester Evening News, 1st of September 2021.

I wasn't really surprised because this is the Nanny State path that the world has started walking down. Where it will end, who knows.

This is the start of slippery slope in personal freedom. First it was flights, which although wrong was a form of immigration control. However, this next step of nightclubs, events and large gatherings is particularly sad for several reasons, one of which is that it impacts the young who need to live their lives.

What is a large gathering? Is a lecture room full of students a large gathering? Is a packed bus or train at rush hour? Yes, a large gathering is more than around 5. If my memory serves me right, if you want to protest through the streets of the UK you'll need approval for such "large gatherings" of any more than 10 people.

Before you know it, you won't be able to fart without a vaccine passport.

The problem with all this bullshit is that there is no guarantee that you will not either be killed or for the rest of your life be seriously impaired from receiving a vaccine. However small the risk (~1 : 30,000 of death), UKGov cannot offer any guarantee. Also, being vaccinated offers no guarantee of not catching CV-19 or being a carrier. Their reasoning is that being vaccinated reduces the risk of catching it but it does not eliminate it. It's a flawed reasoning and like so much of other CV-19 policies one built on fear, irrationality and hidden agendas.

In a free world, there must always exist a place for the conscientious objector. And the same applies to vaccines, just as in times of war. But there are many who increasingly believe that the consciousness objector stance does not apply when it comes to vaccines. The Australian government takes such a stance with their "No Jab - No Pay" agenda, and now the UK adopts/copies a similar "No Pay - No Job" agenda.

11 Days Later - Vaccine Passports Scraped

11 days later on the 12th of September UKGov announced it would NOT be going ahead with vaccine passports. Make your mind up!

Vaccine passport plans for nightclubs and events scrapped, confirms Sajid Javid , Mirror, 12th of September 2021.

Bizarre when you think about it. Whitehall civil servants are all for vaccine passports on the 1st of September. They then get their MP lackeys to do the rounds spouting the rhetoric that such a move is essential. And then less than 2 weeks later the plans are ditched. Like dealing with a loony.

Health Workers

From the 11th of November 2021, all staff in registered care homes in England MUST be vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccine. Consultations are already taking place in which ALL NHS staff MUST be COVID-19 vaccinated:

Covid-19 vaccine: Unvaccinated NHS workers could be barred from treating patients as jabs to be compulsory, MSN, 9th of September 2021.

It's called the drip by drip policy. Before you know it, ALL workers will be required to be vaccinated.

Construction Workers

September 2021 saw demonstrations in Australia following the introduction of mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations for construction workers. Construction workers were first told to stay at home for 2 weeks and not come to work, and then on going back to work require that they are vaccinated.

All Workers

I wrote the above line on the 9th of September 2021 and later the same day read the following article in the FT:

Biden demands US companies introduce vaccine mandates, FT, 9th of September 2021.

It states:

"The Biden administration will demand that companies force their employees to get vaccinated against Covid-19 or submit to weekly testing as part of a new plan that will also result in government workers being fired if they refuse to take the jab. ..."

Even though it could kill you or seriously impair your health for the rest of life, you will be fired if you refuse it. Now if that isn't a serious infringement of a person's freedom of expression and liberty then I don't know what is. America - the land of the free. What horse shit.
