Despite previous government denials that there are any plans to roll out COVID vaccine passports, reports have confirmed that every person vaccinated in two select areas of Britain will be offered exactly that as a ‘trial’ being rolled out with immediate effect.
The London Telegraph reports that biometrics firm iProov and cybersecurity firm Mvine have developed the vaccine passports, which will be optionally provided as an app on phones of those vaccinated.
The government will conduct the rollout in two local authorities, and monitor its application until March.
The report notes that the government has ploughed £75,000 into the trial already, which is claimed to be a way of monitoring who has had the vaccine.
Frank Joshi, director and founder of Mvine noted that while the project started as just a way of keeping a record of COVID tests, extra funding was pumped into it in order to turn it into a vaccine passport scheme.
“Originally we started off with this need to prove whether you’ve had an antibody test, but it can be equally used to demonstrate whether you’ve been vaccinated,” Joshi said, according to the report.
Andrew Bud, chief executive of the other company involved, iProov, said that the system will be integrated with the National Health Service, and could easily be rolled out to everyone in the country.
“We’re talking about a piece of remarkable technology that can be brought to bear and can be readily integrated with the NHS,” he said.
The development appears to be separate from the government contracts given to two other firms to develop COIVD ‘freedom passports’, which we reported on several weeks ago.
Last month, Britain’s vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi announced that the government had no plans to introduce immunity passports en mass, or place restrictions on those who do not take the jab.
This latest revelation puts Zahawi’s already dubious claim into serious doubt.
We also previously reported, back in November, on the UK government’s active plans to develop a QR code system to use as an ‘immunity passport’.
The report, stemming from sources close to the government, noted that “Those who refuse to get the Covid-19 jab would likely be refused entry to venues, as part of the same proposals.”
Other reports have suggested that an app already used prominently in the UK by people to book doctor and hospital appointments could implement a vaccination status section that will show whether a person has taken the coronavirus jab or not, and that businesses may use it to refuse entry to those who have not.
The spectre of so called ‘immunity passports’ is looming globally.
Yesterday it was revealed that Denmark is the latest country to announce that it is rolling out a ‘Covid passport’, to allow those who have taken the vaccine to engage in society without any restrictions.
Recently, the government in Ontario, Canada admitted that it is exploring ‘immunity passports’ in conjunction with restrictions on travel and access to social venues for the unvaccinated.
Last month, Israel announced that citizens who get the COVID-19 vaccine will be given ‘green passports’ that will enable them to attend venues and eat at restaurants.
Sam Grant, campaign manager at the civili liberties advocacy group Liberty has warned that “any form of immunity passport risks creating a two-tier system in which some of us have access to freedoms and support while others are shut out.”
“These systems could result in people who don’t have immunity potentially being blocked from essential public services, work or housing – with the most marginalised among us hardest hit,” Grant further warned.
“This has wider implications too because any form of immunity passport could pave the way for a full ID system – an idea which has repeatedly been rejected as incompatible with building a rights-respecting society,” Grant further urged.
UK Government Advisors Call For MORE Lockdowns
They want to go street by street now…
Advisors to the government in the UK, which has mostly been under varying degrees of lockdowns for more than a year now and is supposed to be emerging from the last of the restrictions, have said that there may have to be further lockdowns in order to stop new coronavirus variants.
The London Independent reports:
…a top scientist advising the government has said local restrictions may need to be reintroduced if surge testing fails to halt the spread of the South African Covid variant.
Professor John Edmunds, an epidemiologist at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, told ITV’s Peston show that if mass testing events, such as those currently underway in Southwark and Barnet in London, “don’t work that well … then it’s possible we’ll have to impose some sort of local restrictions back in place and nobody wants to do it”.
A similar report in the Telegraph notes that lockdowns may have to be localised to different streets to prevent outbreaks of new variants.
Dr Jeffrey Barrett, director of the Covid-19 Genomics Initiative at the Wellcome Sanger Institute told the BBC that shutting down individual streets “certainly could” help prevent the spread of the virus “because one of the trickiest parts of this virus overall is, of course, some individuals who are infected don’t have symptoms and so they can transmit.”
“Trying to use interventions that might stop asymptomatic transmission may well be an important part of keeping outbreaks of these new variants to be as absolutely small as possible,” Barrett added.
He also suggested that there is a “chance” new variants will be “less well neutralised” by vaccines, adding that it is “restrictions” that have helped contain outbreaks.
That rhetoric echos what Prime Minister Boris Johnson said earlier this week when he stated that it is lockdowns, rather than vaccinations that have caused a reduction in cases of the virus:
Both government advisors mentioned above also advocated so called ‘surge testing’, yet as noted earlier this week, the vast majority of positive results from rapid testing are likely false:
As we have tirelessly documented, lockdowns are not an effective means of preventing the spread of any virus, and come with many other disastrous consequences.
As the UK begins to reopen, we are seeing a further enforcement of restrictions with the likes of ‘COVID marshals’ being put back onto the streets to report people to the police for not properly social distancing.
It appears to be becoming clearer that this nightmare is never going to end.
Nearly Half of Brits Say They Will Struggle to Revert Back to Normal Life After Lockdown
Stockholm Syndrome strikes again.
Nearly half of Brits, including a majority of women, say they will struggle to revert back to normal life after lockdown, with only 37 per cent saying they would not miss anything about lockdown.
According to a YouGov poll, 49 per cent say they will find it hard to “adjust back to how life was before March 2020,” with only 42 per cent saying they would find it “easy.”
56 per cent of women say they will find it difficult and the same figure applies to 18-24 year olds who also said they would struggle compared to just one third would said they would find it easy.
Only 5 per cent say they would find it hard to stop worrying about catching COVID-19, while more than a third say they fear “being out in public with other people/crowds.”
“A separate YouGov poll, also published on Thursday, revealed what Britons would miss about the lockdown, including there being “less traffic and fewer planes, and cleaner air and streets” (11 per cent), “time with family, partner, pets and/or bubble” (eight per cent), and “having more time/A slower or simpler life” (seven per cent),” reports Breitbart.
The results of the survey follow a similar poll conducted by the London Times which found that a “significant proportion” of Brits enjoyed lockdown.
A separate opinion poll conducted last month by YouGov found that over half of Brits said they would miss “many” or “some” aspects of the lockdown.
The figures once again underscore how a majority of people appear to be utterly oblivious to the precedent that lockdown has created, handing government the power to completely restrict basic civil liberties on a whim.
Two separate but similar Aldous Huxley quotes sum up perfectly what we have witnessed over the course of the last 13 months.
“A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude,” wrote Huxley.
“The perfect dictatorship would have the appearance of a democracy, but would basically be a prison without walls in which the prisoners would not even dream of escaping. It would essentially be a system of slavery where, through consumption and entertainment, the slaves would love their servitudes,” he also warned.

EPIC Video: Rep. Jim Jordan Demands Answers From Fauci – Is Told ‘Shut Your Mouth’ By Dem Waters
“Do you think that the Constitution is suspended during a virus?”
During a House subcommittee hearing Thursday, Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio demanded answers from White House medical advisor Anthony Fauci to basic questions about COVID restrictions, but was told he was ‘making the matter personal’, that he was ‘ranting’, and to ‘shut his mouth’.
Jordan charged Fauci of flip flopping on restrictions such as masks and distancing, and demanded to know exactly when the mitigation measures would be put to bed.
“15 days to slow the spread turned into 1 year of lost liberty,” Jordan urged, adding “What metrics, what measures, what has to happen before Americans get more freedoms back?”
Fauci responded “I don’t look at this as a liberty thing, Congressman Jordan. I look at this as a public health thing.”
Jordan interjected “well that’s obvious”, after having asserted that Americans’ liberties have been “assaulted” during the past year.
“Do you think that the Constitution is suspended during a virus, during a pandemic? It’s certainly not,” Jordan emphasised.
As Fauci spluttered that “this will end when infections are low,” Jordan again declared “Dr Fauci, over the past year Americans’ First Amendment rights have been completely attacked.”
When Fauci failed to give any time frame for the end of restrictions, Jordan asked “give us your best guess then”, to which Fauci responded “I just did”.
“Are we gonna be here two years from now wearing masks?” Jordan asked, to which Fauci arrogantly responded “You’re ranting again.”
“Here’s how it works, Dr. Fauci. I get to ask you the questions,” Jordan fired back, adding “You’re the highest paid official in the United States government, you’ve given us your opinion on baseball, on dating apps, on cruise ships, you told us zero masks, one mask, two masks, now back to one mask, I’m just asking you when is it gonna end?”
“You call it ranting, I call it standing up for the Constitution, which I take an oath to uphold,” Jordan passionately proclaimed.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH): “Are we gonna be here two years from now wearing masks …?”

Fauci also told Jordan, “You’re making this a personal thing and it isn’t.”
“It’s not a personal thing,” Jordan shot back.
“No, you are,” Fauci whined, adding “That is exactly what you’re doing.”
“You’re making this a personal thing, and it isn’t … my recommendations are not a personal recommendation. It is based on the CDC guidance … we’re not talking about liberties. We’re talking about a pandemic that has killed 560,000 Americans” — Fauci to Jim Jordan pic.twitter.com/Q0TzaaGlAG

When Jordan attempted to continue questioning Fauci beyond his allowed time, Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters yelled from across the room “You need to respect the chair and shut your mouth.”
Jordan’s fiery in your face approach is certainly visually effective, but Americans still don’t have any answers from Fauci to basic questions about restrictions. Indeed, as he told CNN, he believes any such questions are part of “crazy conspiracy theory”.
