Privacy Watchdog Big Brother Watch has called the NHS Vaccine Passport, that was quietly launched this week, 'the biggest data-grab in UK history' and warned that UK ‘Covid passports’ officially rolled out for international travel will eventually be used domestically to restrict the movement of the population, and that the small print even admits it.
The group tweeted that the privacy notice attached to the vaccine status feature of the NHS app says that the data will be used at ‘domestic events’
The Privacy notice on the NHS website further states that data from the system will be used at ‘vaccination only events’, including shockingly states it will hold “Information relating to the individual’s physical or mental health condition,” as well as “Information relating to genetic /biometric details,” and “Information relating to the family of the individual and the individual’s lifestyle and social circumstances.”
Vision News has also discovered that the system can collect other information, such as what political persuasion you are, your sexual orientation, and even if you belong to a trade union. The disclaimer makes a point of listing these things and then 'promises' not to act on them, only for a following paragraph to suggest that it can and will if in the 'interest of national importance', which will of course be determined by the government of the day.
Director of the campaign group Silkie Carlo outlined how the system is about much more than vaccines:
The group also warns that the vaccine status being added to the NHS app dovetails with a simultaneous massive data grab:
Vision News have extensively covered, plans to adapt a simple vaccine status app and use it domestically have always been in the works. We are also told that the majority of British people are willing to accept the vaccine passports in order to engage in basic day to day activities, and that they are willing to go along with the digital ID card system PERMANENTLY.
for fuck sake!
The DDP (Domestic Data Passport) has been planned all along, the facility to store all information that the government might want was included in the app from the start. this is nothing to do with your summer holiday, this is a digital ID system that will form the basis of the UK Credit Score System similar to the one operated in China. Don't say we didn't warn you.
