The Mail on Sunday journalist Dan Hodges told Talk Radio’s Mike Graham this morning, that the unvaccinated are largely responsible for the government’s decision to push Freedom Day back to July 19th.
Hodges said that we shouldn’t blame the Indian variant for the delay:
“My own view is that there’s too much emphasis on the Indian variant. I think a much bigger part of this and a much bigger problem, is actually that there are a small but significant number of people, who have been offered the vaccine and simply haven’t taken it.
And I think that’s a big part of the problem we’ve got and frankly I’m not entirely sure what the government can do about that.”
“I think we have to be very clear now that this is it, there are four weeks left, you’ve got four weeks to get vaccinated, but if you don’t get vaccinated in that time, then on July 19th that’s it and I’m afraid….”
Before he could finish the thought, the presenter foolishly interjected with some nonsense about a previous conversation between the two. What was Hodges going to say?
Was he going to say that if by July 19th you haven’t had the jab, you shouldn’t have your freedoms restored? It sounds like it. Graham, the presenter said that when we reach July 19th, we may well be in the same boat, with lots of people who will not have the jab, to which Hodges replied:
“That’s obviously a serious issue and which is why I think up until this point, I think the government and others have been trying to use a carrot in reaching out to BAME people and vaccine sceptics…but I think the tone now has to change. We’ve had enough of this now, we’ve been through enough of this. The vaccine is our way out…..I am sorry, there are no excuses now, you have to get the vaccine.”
They’re going to turn up the heat on the unjabbed, or the unsullied as I refer to us now. The next few weeks are going to be very interesting. Stand fast and screw your courage to the sticking place.
A third of patients who died after catching the Indian variant had both jabs.
