According to the London Telegraph, UK vaccine passports “could be rolled out across the UK” if Boris Johnson’s “trial” run goes as planned.
Biometrics firm iProov and cybersecurity firm Mvine developed a digital passport for the trial in two so far unnamed designated areas.
While Britain’s science and research funding agency OK’d £75,000 for the project, Johnson’s health department said there was “no plan” to take this step.
Getting underway this month, it’ll continue for about two months.
Saying one thing, then doing another, happens time and again in the West and elsewhere.
Minister Michael Gove earlier said vaccine passports are “not the plan” going forward. He lied.
Johnson’s mass-vaxxing chief Nadhim Zahawi said we’re ‘looking at the technology.’ ”
In December, he said the following:
“I think mandating vaccinations is discriminatory and completely wrong…and I would urge businesses listening to this debate today not to even think about this,” adding:
“We have absolutely no plans for vaccine passporting.” Like Gove, he lied.
An anti-vaccine passport petition now circulating in Britain got hundreds of thousands of signatures, stating the following:
“I want the government to prevent any restrictions being placed on those who refuse to have any potential covid-19 vaccine.”
“This includes restrictions on travel, social events, such as concerts or sports. No restrictions whatsoever.”
Ignored by Zahawi, days earlier he about-faced, saying that he expects bars, cinemas, restaurants and sports stadiums to demand proof of vaxxing against covid (aka renamed seasonal flu) for access to these, perhaps other public areas and travel.
