Diary of an Unexpected Dissident – first pub announces it will discriminate against the unvaccinated

Thurs 15 July

A pub in Norwich is in the news as the first pub to enforce vaccine passports. No entry for the unvaccinated. So it’s started and it feels sickening. Discrimination, which is so frowned upon if done by other criteria is being enthusiastically embraced. Do these people not see where this leads? Do they not see the lack of logic in admitting vaccinated people who still catch and spread the virus? The division has begun and the government is encouraging it. Rather than mandate it at the moment it praises companies that introduce it and makes them feel virtuous. The government encourages people to discriminate. What insanity we have reached.

Three weeks to flatten the curve to you can’t go to a pub without showing your papers. In less than 18 months.

Diary of an Unexpected Dissident – vaccine passports and our loss of freedoms

Tues July 13rd 2021

The world has changed so much that to live a normal life is to be seen as a dissident

Things are closing in on those of us who love freedom. We believed we lived in a country that held freedom as one of the highest needs of man, a country that went to war to battle totalitarians. But now that totalitarianism has appeared at home.

After months of telling us that there would be no vaccine passports the latest news is that there will be vaccine passports. This is outrageous, because of the governmental lying, but also of course the fundamental incompatibility between vaccine passports and a western democracy.

France has already announced vaccine passports will be necessary to visit cafes. Cafes! A western government is controlling where its citizens can go. And the British government is heading down the same path. Currently it is saying it will apply to big events. Can I book a ticket for a ‘big event’ in a few weeks, or will I arrive and have to divulge my medical records and find myself shut out?

We are no longer heading to a communist-inspired totalitarian dystopia, we are living it. Historians will wonder how it was ever allowed to happen.

How can we resist the encroaching madness?

Diary of an Unexpected Dissident #1 – Are we looking forward to cricket and Proust, or life in a gulag?

Surely the UK experiment with totalitarian communism won’t continue

Who knows where this vaccine passport madness ends. A gulag in the Highlands? A bullet in the back of the head? Or maybe it all calms down, the government decides the experiment with totalitarian communism was an aberration and we can all go back to watching the cricket and reading Proust. Whatever, here is a diary to mark the descent into insanity/return to normal…

– 6 April 21

Crazy that an Englishman should be writing this. But it’s looking bleak. The government a few months ago said they wouldn’t introduce vaccine passports. A couple of weeks ago it was something they were evaluating. There was talk of them being needed for pubs. Now we are supposed to be grateful that they won’t be needed for pubs, but may be needed for big events.

I don’t care what they might be needed for, they are a monstrous imposition and a huge step into totalitarianism. They would give the government the technological infrastructure to implement a Chinese communist style social credit system. They wouldn’t do that, friends say, this is England. A year ago I might have agreed. But they have just locked us in our houses for a year. That was a definitely a ‘they wouldn’t do that in England’ thing. If they’d do that they could do anything. We can not rely on trust anymore.

The state has turned on its people

How sad that the state has turned on its people. In the Telegraph today Frederick Forsyth said he’d seen nothing like it since the East German government propaganda saying that the Berlin Wall was to keep the aggressive west Berliners out. So many lies have been told it is impossible to believe anything that is said by Number Ten or its spokesmen.

Two friends have told me they have had their vaccines. 

The actual vaccine is not what I am worried about. It is the vaccine passport, totalitarianism, communism, gulags, and having to write this diary from prison that is more worrying.
