Ignoring all the epidemiologists and psychologists, BBC Scotland rely on the expertise of ‘senior political communications specialist’, UK Hospitality guy and Neil Oliver lookalike, Leon Thompson:
He told BBC Radio’s Good Morning Scotland programme: “One of the critical factors that has not really been talked about is just how ready the public is for the introduction of these passports. I would say they are not ready at all.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-58733492
But, but senior political communications specialist, in February 2021, 7 months ago:
The Serco Institute’s discussion paper, Public Opinion & Vaccine Passports, outlines findings that show the public back vaccine passports being used in a wide range of settings. It showed a majority of people want to see their introduction in all of the settings we asked about – from international travel to non-essential retail. Arguably more significant than the levels of support is the remarkably low levels of opposition to the implementation of vaccine passports, with consistently low-numbers of people showing little opposition for their introduction.https://www.sercoinstitute.com/news/2021/vaccine-passports-uk-public-opinion
Maybe they’ve forgotten how to be ready?
Well, on 20th September 2021:
More than half ‘in favour of vaccine passports’ in Wales, poll shows.https://www.itv.com/news/wales/2021-09-20/more-than-half-in-favour-of-vaccine-passports-in-wales-poll-shows
They’re Welsh so they’re not relevant in Scotland?
OK, here’s a UK one from August 2021, with 60% support for the vaccine passports:
Aye, aye, what about the ‘regional’ breakdown?
Ooh, you’re right, only 55% of Scots for the passports.
Wait, wait, again, far more don’t knows among the Scots (13% to 9%) – it’s 55 to 32, a clear lead – clever folk, canny?
