So, since before the day that will live in infamy when the Uk tok our rights away, I've been anti-lockdown, but I've also been pro-vaccine, that is pro-vaccine-for-thse-who-want-it. I've also been strongly anti-authoritarian, and anti-coercive-measures.
Now as things stand today the vaccine seems to work, and the UK is doing pretty well rolling it out, yet we are still under the lockdown jackboot despite every vulnerable person who wants said vaccine now having had it. Amid all this the vaccine is very popular indeed, and whilst many might not want to have it themselves, preaching against it doesn't win people any widespread support.
Lockdown is thankfully collapsing, plenty of people violating it, and in the vulnerable categories too. 40% of over 80s have now been openly defying Hancock's bullsh*t, and good on them, they need the health benefits which physical company brings. The big threat we are facing now is those zero-covid-fantasists who would condemn us to an eternal new-abnormal by failing to recognise that covid is OVER! They want eternal testing, they want zero-covid, they want a global lockdown decalred for every dropped tissue (even though they're the ones responsible for all that mask litter in the hedges)...
Particularly insidious is the danger of vaccine passports, the idea that people should have to prove their status to access the fundamentals of freedom is disgusting. And we can use that natural disgust to our advantage. We need to make it clear that "if you love the vaccine you should hate the passport". We've seen that defance of lockdown lunacy has surged among the newly vaccinated vulnerable, they've decided that the vaccine isn't worth much if it doesn't give them back their freedom. And freedom is something everyone needs, whether they choose the vaccine or not. There is a good argument to be made here which should help get vaccine supporters turning against vaccine passports, focus not on fears about the vacicne, but the explicit dangers of such "passports" to everyone.
