UK Prime Minister - Boris I will eat my ID card Johnson.
He states they are **"a recipe for tyranny and oppression"**
and requests for a bowl of cereal.
Here he writes in the Daily Telegraph Newspaper;
"But I tell you this. If I am ever asked, on the streets of London, or in any other venue, public or private, to produce my ID card when I have done nothing wrong and when I am simply ambling along and breathing God's fresh air like any other freeborn Englishman, then **I will take that card out of my wallet and physically eat it** in the presence of whatever emanation of the state has demanded that I produce it.
Today - the UK government is conducting a review into the viability of implementing a Vaccine Passports ID system to limit people's freedom to access society.
Due to "legal complications"
- namely - it institutes a segregationist system of apartheid which directly contravenes the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights and the European Charter of Human Rights - to which the UK is a signatory -
we are now seeing a shift in the narrative.
Vaccine Passports are being rebranded as "Covid Status Certification"
and regular mass testing is being explored as a means by which to circumvent the illegality of mandating a domestic permits.
I have flaired this post as Humour because
1) British people know - watching Boris squirm is very funny.
and 2) It is also very funny to be told that changing somethings name, changes what it is.
