Boris Johnson to Implement 'Covid Status Certification' on Recommendation of Tony Blair


Blair is organising your vaccine passport, won't that be nice?


Probably the most controversial aspect of the Boris Johnson's roadmap out of Lockdown is the implementation of compulsory vaccine passports.


First dismissed as a 'conspiracy theory', then just one of the many options "being looked at",

now 'could play a role in reopening our economy.' But, as we have been reporting since August last year, plans for their implementation are already well underway.


The full road-map document features a section on what are now being described as 'Covid Status Certifications' (section 131). Although immensely important to millions of Britons, it only receives two paragraphs of vagaries, and is not honest about the Covid passport plan, which they have repeatedly lied about.


Covid Status Certification

131: The Government will review whether COVID-status certification could play a role in reopening our economy, reducing restrictions on social contact and improving safety. This will include assessing to what extent certification would be effective in reducing risk, and the potential uses to enable access to settings or a relaxation of COVID-Secure mitigations. The Government will also consider the ethical, equalities, privacy, legal and operational aspects of this approach and what limits, if any, should be placed on organisations using certification.


It will draw on external advice to develop recommendations that take into account any social and economic impacts, and implications for disproportionately impacted groups and individuals’ privacy and security. The Government will set out its conclusions in advance of Step 4 in order to inform the safe reopening of society and the economy.


We break down this statement to reveal the subtext:

The Government will review whether COVID-status certification could play a role in reopening our economy, reducing restrictions on social contact and improving safety. - There's a lie on the first line, not a good start, they have already decided to implement them, months ago. Also note that the description is positive, 'reducing restrictions' and 'improving safety'.


This will include assessing to what extent certification would be effective in reducing risk, and the potential uses to enable access to settings or a relaxation of COVID-Secure mitigations. "To what extent" also suggests that they've already decided they're implementing the passports. And, with there being only one 'potential' use, it really reads 'to what extent we will force people to use them'.


The Government will also consider the ethical, equalities, privacy, legal and operational aspects of this approach and what limits, if any, should be placed on organisations using certification.
