This evening, 9th December 2021, Boris Johnson flanked by his suited doom faced plague watchmen, Witty and Vallance, announced the introduction of vaccine passports in England.
From Thursday 16 they will be required for nightclubs and unseated indoor venues with more than 500 people, unseated outdoor venues of more than 4,000, and any outdoor venue, whether seated or unseated, of more than 10,000 people. This next nail in the coffin for our liberal democracy appears to be being hammered in pretty much on schedule, since the ‘Making vaccination a condition of deployment in the health and wider social care sector’ consultation, included ‘questions’ about conditional entry to larger venues worded as a given, from mid December. From Friday mask mandates will be broadened to include theatres and cinemas – but not restaurants, bars or pubs. So we can look forward to the increasing ubiquitousness of the visual emblem for the communitarian Covidian spirit.
Mask wearers of course, as we’re often reminded, don’t don the face eraser for their own protection, but to signal obedience to the medical apartheid digital surveillance biosecurity dystopia being built for everyone. Perhaps I misremembered that last bit. A heartwarming display of inclusivity nevertheless.
The purported ‘Omicron variant’ played the villain role in this Advent pantomime, in lieu of the possibility of blaming a winter surge in ARI hospital admissions or Covid deaths capable of overwhelming NHS capacity.
Whilst even the WHO has stated there has yet to be a death attributed to it, that proved no obstacle for the paid off boffins in creating dire modelling predictions about what Omicron might unleash upon the NHS should we not ‘stay safe’ by coughing up a few more of our rights and freedoms. Perhaps the true danger of this ‘highly evolved’ variant is that it appears almost harmless until it’s too late to survive outside of a centralised digital currency linked social credit health passport system. That certainly makes me feel quite peaky.
The mood in the room seemed unanimously unenthusiastic about the announcements, at least if twitter is any reflection of wider feeling, with #EnoughIsEnough, #DoNotComplyEVER, #ToriesPartiedWhilePeopleDied, #NoVaccinePassports and #DoOne hashtags trending over the course of the evening. Much of people’s anger and frustration was narrowly directed at Boris Johnson.
Although certainly deserving of approbation for being the ‘front fool’ for inhumane, anti democratic, and (further) inequality promoting policies over the past two years, Johnson and the UK Conservative government are in fact behind schedule to many (purportedly) further left governments in the global biofascist system rollout. There were conflicting views on whether the Covid pass implementation announcement was a ‘dead cat’ distraction from #ChristmasPartyGate or vice versa. Micheal Kill, director of the Night Time Industries Association complained, ‘It feels that Nightclubs and bars have been thrown under the bus by the Prime Minister for him to save his own skin,’
Gary Neville posted a video claiming press conference was a ‘distraction technique.’ Laura Dodsworth meanwhile claimed in her blog, published pre press conference, that a government whistleblower had informed her, ‘Masks were a softening up exercise for Plan B. . .Covid passes are ‘oven-baked’ and ready to go.’
It remains to be seen how much a rebellion back bench MPs are prepared to mount, following fighting talk from the likes of Sir Graham Brady, David Jones, Ben Bradley and others.
Regardless of political backlash, it is imperative that ordinary people of sense and compassion, whether injected or uninjected, stand together in united non compliance against this disgraceful affront to our freedoms and humanity. In the words of one resolutely defiant tweeter, ‘this is the biggest picket line of our lifetime, no-one must cross it.’
