Industry dismisses Johnson's 'vaccine passports' for pubs idea as 'repressive' and 'unworkable'

"It's unbelievable to reflect on how much your nation has achieved since the circumstance of its birth", said the UK Prime Minister marking the country's independence.

Johnson said: "I think that that's the kind of thing that may be up to individual publicans".

The remarks follow reports corroborated by Health Secretary Matt Hancock that the government was considering vaccination as a "condition of deployment" in care homes and other healthcare settings, contrary to the prime minister's December remarks that it "is no part of our culture or our ambition in this country to make vaccines mandatory". "It may be up to the landlord".

'I do badly need a haircut but it's going to happen'. For example, doctors had to be vaccinated against hepatitis B, he said.

Steve Baker, the deputy chairman of a group of Conservative lawmakers who have opposed what they call a cycle of lockdowns, said that vaccine passports for pubs are a "dangerous path" to what he called a two-tier Britain.

Mr Baker hit out: "The Prime Minister began to tread a unsafe path when he opened the door to domestic COVID certificates".

In a video message posted on Twitter on Friday, Johnson said the visit of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 10 Downing Street in 1972 was "instrumental" in forging the friendship between the two countries.

That would be fun... "The Liberals have staked their entire climate plan on the carbon tax". Provinces were more open to adjusting their plans as a result of the decision however.

According to The Guardian the government are considering allowing this check to include a negative test or proof of vaccine.

"Or one where we turn back the clock and tolerate businesses turning away customers from communities which have shown an unfortunate hesitancy to take up the offer of a vaccine".

"We must not fall into this ghastly trap", he said.

Jonathan Neame, the chief executive of the Shepherd Neame pub chain who own over 300 pubs around the United Kingdom, said they would not be insisting on the measure.

But trade bodies have said making access conditional on jabs is "simply unworkable" and would cause "conflict" between staff and punters.

Prominent voices from across the hospitality sector were quick to dismiss the Prime Minister's comments.

"I was glad to hear the Prime Minister reassure William Wragg that anything that is redundant will go in relation to Coronavirus Act powers".
