THE Health Secretary seems certain to push through mandatory vaccination for all NHS workers, despite the Government’s open consultation on the matter having closed only on Friday for supposed ‘analysis’.
Care home staff have already been given a deadline for a second jab of November 11 before ‘get out and get another job’ regulations come into force, and in anticipation of this next of Sajid Javid’s inevitable moves it is well worth taking a closer look at the care home mandate (updated October 19) to comprehend fully what it will mean for all, not just those employed by the NHS.
For now, at least, visiting friends and relatives of care home residents mercifully do not need to show proof of vaccination or clinical exemption, but couriers who need to carry bulky deliveries into the building, job interviewees and workers carrying out non-urgent maintenance do, despite not being required to go anywhere near residents: protocol Fawlty Towers-esque in comedic value were the context not so sickening.
Since September 15, care home workers have been able to ‘self-certify’ a medical exemption from Covid-19 vaccination (exemption on religious or philosophical grounds being invalid), but on October 1 they entered the beginning of a 12-week period during which they must have this self-certification approved by a GP or relevant clinician, whose decision is unchallengeable.
This must be achieved by December 24 in what is no doubt a strategic date chosen by the Health Secretary so that those who refuse to do so can be blamed for any Christmas misery faced by residents left at the mercy of the problems these agitprop superspreaders will be alleged to have caused. Such pathogenic refuseniks may even end up accountable, albeit in media terms, for the elevated level of care home deaths during our ‘first’ Covid/flu hybrid winter; the death toll of the latter certain to be disguised within the former to provide further justification for yet more mandates. Make no mistake, in the Gordian knot of duplicity that has become normal life, it will be the unvaccinated who ruin Christmas this year.
The implications of these aspects of the care home mandate on the nation as a whole are truly ruinous, and enable us to piece together a vision of how this winter may pan out in terms of interventions.
The chief executive of the NHS Confederation, Matthew Taylor, whose throat must be raw after recent diatribes against freedom, has said that ‘we may need to just get used to the fact that the booster campaign needs to happen every six months and prepare for that’. Should this become the case, individuals will not be considered fully vaccinated unless they have received their latest booster shot, a merry-go-round of control already endorsed by Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews, a tyrant who said: ‘I’m not taking lectures on freedom from people who will hold all of us back.’
Margaret Harris, a spokesperson for the World Health Organisation, recently stated that ‘the vaccine isn’t going to get us out of this . . . we really have to do other measures’. This advice contradicts Johnson’s stance that they are ‘safe, they save lives, and they are our way out of this pandemic’, but when puppet Johnson opens his mouth on Covid matters, we know to expect the opposite of that he has been needled into saying. Plan B-plus is being readied for execution.
Portentously, the Austrian government are considering lockdown-style measures only for the unvaccinated, and this is perhaps the most disturbing part of all the lunacy of late. The implemention of such a lockdown in the UK would require the unvaccinated not only to provide a clinically authenticated exemption (enabling them to retain the most basic of freedoms), but in the case of refusal to comply with this measure, an additional requirement of a similarly authenticated exemption from mask wearing must surely then come into force (the unvaccinated the most likely not to use face coverings). This measure has not yet been introduced in the UK, whose citizens so far have been able to ‘self-certify’ verbally their wish not to wear a mask. Without this additional control measure, this cohort of particularly stubborn individuals could risk quite literally not being permitted to set foot outside the house. How else to pick off the remaining vaccine refusers?
There’s only one place to go from there and that’s door-to-door vaccination, a measure already supported by some. The consequences of ignoring such a knock on the door don’t bear thinking about, fines being the least of any deviant’s worries in the long term.
The NHS vaccine mandate is imminent, and soon after that the mandate for all workers will arrive. Johnson, Javid et al may drag their heels over the latter a little, but only to create the illusion of Britain’s resistance to such draconian measures: we are such a liberty-loving nation in the eyes of the world, apparently.
In reality, the only liberty the majority of the public in this Re-education Farm enjoy is the freedom to relinquish all personal responsibility to the state, that they may never have to confront the harsh reality of their total absence of morals.
The normalisation of Government’s increasingly cocky despotism is a sign that this winter, for them, will be naught but an opportunity to pummel the citizenry further into submission.
