The obligation for young people to be vaccinated if they want to enter a club or discotheque in September falls completely into the wrong throat of the British. The catering industry is pissed, but scientists and judges also support the criticism.
The announcement by Prime Minister Boris Johnson came as a complete surprise, as his ministers Michael Gove and Nadhim Zahawi very recently denied that there were plans for a ’vaccine passport’.
The nightlife is wild. “Just a week ago, the Health Minister told us that vaccines would not be mandatory,” said Director Michael Kill Of The Night Time Industries Association. “What an absolute mess.”
Kill doesn’t understand: “the government’s own report on vaccine passports showed that they did more good than harm – so how can this be explained?” The Daily Mail are also wondering where the U-turn comes from.
Scientists and judges now rally behind the criticism. Former Supreme Court Lord Sumption finds the measure ‘completely unnecessary’. Director prof. Carl Heneghan of the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine (Oxford University) cynically responded to Twitter and Professor Sir Jonathan Montgomery, who was chairman of the UK Government Ethics Committee on contact tracing, warns of the moment when ” inducement and coercion meet.”
