Civil service job ads prove that the introduction of ‘Covid Status Certificates’ (both digital or non-digital) is coming, just like we said.
Michael Gove is visiting Israel this week, to 'review' the countries ‘green pass’ scheme as part of his charade into reviewing Covid Passports. However, political website Guido Fawkes reports: Multiple jobs have now come up in both London and Leeds with NHSX [the tech arm of the NHS], which spells out they are: “Developing both digital and non-digital options to enable U.K. residents to assert their Covid status, including both vaccination history and test results.”
The ad also confirms a rapid timetable, given applicants must be able “to start with us by Tuesday, May 4th, 2021“. The consultation document released by the Government a fortnight ago merely said they had “committed to explore whether and how Covid-status certification might be used to reopen our economy”.
First Vaccine Passports were a conspiracy theory, then ministers said they would never implement them as they would be "discriminatory" (as Nadhim Zahawi did in Parliament as recently as February) Then Boris Johnson said they were 'just looking' at the idea before implementing them 'on a trial basis' this month. But we saw documents last year proving Vaccine Passports were coming. In private they'd already decided, regardless of the lies that they told in public.
Micheal Gove's trip to Israel is just for show. In December Gove said on Sky News that he did not know of any government plans for Vaccine Passports the very same week he was given the job of setting up the service by Boris Johnson. Gove's trip to Israel will conclude they are a good idea in a publicity stunt to cover his conformation bias. In a recent article for the Telegraph – in which he asked readers to give their thoughts on Covid passports and received some great (though not, for him, agreeable) responses – Gove praised Israel’s ‘green pass’ scheme and considered whether something similar could be introduced here. He wrote:
'In Israel, which is one of the few countries to have vaccinated a higher percentage of the population than we have in the U.K., they have been using a ‘green pass’ to get back to normal more quickly. This green pass system allows citizens who’ve been vaccinated, recently recovered from the virus or who’ve had a recent negative test to congregate in venues which had been closed for months such as theatres and nightclubs…' 'If we do accept that Covid certification is going to be required to travel abroad, the question then follows can these certificates help in other ways? If Israel can accelerate its citizens’ returns to nightclubs, football stadia and theatres with these certificates, might we?"
Note the language in Gove's article. he talks of them 'helping' and that they 'accelerate citizens' return to stadiums and theatres'. This is confirmatory bias and propaganda. Gove will announce that, after a review, Vaccine Passports will be implemented for domestic use, like they were going to be all along.
