Vaccine passports are doomed to fail.
I truly believe they are.
Because no society that values their freedom will tolerate them.
And these authoritarians who have damaged the lives of their constituents have long crossed the line.
But in the wake of more rowdy protests in London, it appears the citizens scored a victory against the tyrants.
Although there were plans to institute COVID-19 vaccine passports, the UK government has tossed those plans.
For now at least.
You can bet they will try these same shenanigans again.
Here’s the latest:

The media may have ignored Saturday’s huge London protests, but the British gov’t paid attention. Vaccine passports are done in the UK. Presumably it will now go the soft coercion route the US prefers (at least in states not run by @GovRonDeSantis.) pic.twitter.com/zKCse8XKGA

UK vaccine passport plans to be scrapped. There will be no legal requirement to show Covid jab status at large events, as ministers go cool on proposals.#NoVaccinePassports

Although it lacked coverage, Israel quietly scrapped their ‘Green Pass.’
Their COVID-19 vaccine passport was hyped as the model to be used across the globe.
Israel plans to remove ALL remaining Covid-19 gathering restrictions on 1 June. That includes the Green Pass rules that restrict places to only vaccinated people.

But the fight doesn’t end there.
The public has to put continued pressure on these wannabe tyrants.
In a free society, vaccine passports should be rejected outright.
No politician who flaunts the use of them has any business being in a position of authority.
Britain plans to drop COVID-19 passports as a legal requirement for large events, The Daily Telegraph reported on Sunday.
The UK officials working on the review into COVID-19 status certificates believe there is no chance the law will be changed to mandate their use within the UK, the report added.
A government spokesman said in an emailed statement to Reuters that the COVID-19 vaccine certification review is still in process and no decision has yet been made.
There has been mounting concern over the prospect of vaccine certificates voiced by the UK’s Conservative Party, as well as opposition lawmakers and civil rights groups. In April, Prime Minister Boris Johnson also signaled the ethical issues posed by COVID-19 vaccine certification.
The Guardian also covered the story:
Plans to make Covid documents a requirement of entry to mass events are likely to be dropped as the government grapples with how it can safely lift the final set of restrictions in England within weeks.
Ministers have been investigating making coronavirus status certificates compulsory in some settings for months, following the lead of Israel, which introduced a “green pass” for people to demonstrate their low-risk of having or transmitting the disease.
As the UK’s vaccination programme continues at greater speed than most countries, questions in Whitehall have focused on how best fully to reopen sectors such as theatres and nightclubs, and restart spectator events including festivals and concerts, without social distancing.
But the Guardian has been told that status documents, which would display proof of vaccination, a recent negative test result, or antibodies, are unlikely to be introduced ahead of 21 June – the final stage of Boris Johnson’s roadmap out of lockdown when all legal limits on social contact are due to be scrapped.
In February, the prime minister announced a review into Covid status certificates – suggesting they could be used in places such as pubs. But the investigation team, led by Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove, later dropped the idea of the documents being required in hospitality settings or any “essential” shop.
Government sources with knowledge of the review have suggested that plans to make the documents a legal requirement are likely to be axed. One said the certificates are “not happening on current thinking” – pointing to Israel preparing to ditch its “green pass” for domestic settings from 1 June – while another said it was an “open secret”.
A third insider stressed that the documents were likely to be used only for international travel, but that the NHS app – which people can use to prove their vaccine status when heading abroad – is continuing to be developed to include negative test results.
