Papers please? Yes that’s fine.

Another disturbing survey has revealed that a majority of British people are willing to accept vaccine passports in order to engage in basic day to day activities, and that they are willing to go along with the digital ID card system PERMANNETLY.
The London Independent poll, conducted by pollster Savanta ComRes, highlighted the findings, with 56 per cent saying that it would be acceptable to have to prove vaccination or negative COVID status in order to enter a shop.
Fewer than a third, 32 per cent, said that this would be unacceptable, according to the survey.
Even more people, 58 per cent, said that they believe the passes should be a requirement to use public transport, with only 29 per cent saying this would not be acceptable.
Yet MORE Brits said that they are willing to show a vaccine passport in order to be allowed to go to work, with a whopping 65 per cent suggesting they are ready to accept the system, and only 24 per cent expressing disapproval.
Sixty-five per cent also said it is acceptable for restaurants to require vaccine passports, with 63 per cent finding them acceptable for pubs and bars. Only 24 per cent expressed opposition in both cases.
The numbers provide even more dismal viewing for those who still value freedom when it comes to public events.
A majority of 67 per cent believe the passes should be required for concerts and theatres, with only 21 per cent against, with nightclub entry at 66 to 22 per cent, and sports stadiums at 66 to 22 per cent, respectively.
In addition, 53 per cent said that the ‘certification’ system should remain in place even after the pandemic is over.
Only around a third said the vaccine passports should be ditched after the pandemic ceases.
The highest majority, 75 per cent are willing to accept vaccine passports for air travel, with only 16 per cent saying that it should not be acceptable.
Savanta ComRes associate director Chris Hopkins said “The public do not seem to be revolting en masse against the restrictions.”
He added, “While there is undoubtedly a desire to return to normal, the public understand that this approach needs to be sensible and are happy for the government to put in place whatever means necessary to ensure a safe return to normality – and if that means vaccine passports, the public appear to be pretty on board.”
The same poll also found that almost one-third (32 per cent) don’t want the lockdown to end, saying the final lifting of restrictions should be extended beyond the government’s current target date of 21 June.
Only 18 per cent said the lockdown should be lifted now.
These findings dovetail with a Sunday Times poll that found a “significant proportion of Brits” say they have actually enjoyed lockdown.
The figures are a stark reminder of how the public has been corralled through a sustained campaign of fear into accepting severe restrictions on their freedoms, with many actually finding it preferable to not be able to leave their homes.
