WELCOME to Freedom Day.
Don’t worry, it’s just a branding exercise. I hope it didn’t get your hopes up. In fact, it’s the prelude to more totalitarianism.
As the old Russian gag goes, ‘there is no truth in Pravda and no news in Izvestia.‘ Pravda means ‘truth’ in Russian and izvestia means ‘news’. They were also both the names of Soviet newspapers.
If only such jokes were relegated to the days of the USSR. Tragically, they have an ominous applicability today, with the words of any government minster not being worth the paper or online code on which they are written.
For months ministers have insisted that vaccine passports would not be introduced. In January this year, Nadhim Zahawi, the Under-Secretary of State for Covid-19 Vaccine Deployment, confirmed that vaccine passports would never become part of daily life in the United Kingdom. Funnily enough, doubting Thomases at The Conservative Woman last December found that a tender for Covid certification passports had been put out as early as November 2020. Typically the MSM and BBC chose to ignore that evidence of duplicity and chicanery.
So fast-forward to ‘freedom day’ – a cruelly named day if there were one. With the passage of seven months the world has changed irrevocably: vaccine passports were confirmed on this day. Entry into nightclubs and other crowded venues will require vaccination by the end of September. That they currently are open to the non-vaccinated makes as little sense as might be expected from a government so firmly resistant to logical thinking.
Given the government’s record to date, if such a move is to go through it is only a matter of time become vaccination status becomes a prerequisite for most of life’s essential activities. The wounded body of British liberty has been dealt another vicious hack of the health hysteria axe.
Of course, people with a ‘legitimate reason’ – at least in the eyes of the government – will be able to circumvent such requirements. Otherwise, the powers-that-be are happy to dash headlong into an apartheid society, in which those willing to accept the government’s control over one’s bodily autonomy are given greater freedom than those maintaining the right of self-determination.
Not a word about those who already have natural immunity from prior infection, nor of the significant numbers of the ‘double vaccinated’ who are still being hospitalised. The drive is headlong into the blind cul-de-sac of enforced immunisation using a vaccine without long-term data, no knowledge of life-long after-effects and already unprecedented numbers of brutal adverse reactions and fatalities.
Once the government legislates for vaccination to be a prerequisite for activities formerly considered part of daily life there will be no turning back. This attempt to strong-arm the young into taking a vaccine that is of no proven benefit to their health and which poses a significant as well as unknown risk to them must rank at the top of the most illiberal and deleterious measures ever imposed by a government in our nation’s past.
Never in our island history have we faced such a grave threat. The enemy is within. And it is the Government. Our fundamental liberties are now more at stake than ever before. The time to defend the God-given rights of all freeborn men and women of Britain is now: this is not a drill.
If this is not resisted there may not be a second chance.
Throughout the twentieth century, people wondered how freedom died in countries across the world. Now we know: through mendacious government overreach and a complacent populace.
