Professor John Ashton told Good Morning Britain today, that “it may well come to that,” when he was asked if the UK could follow Austria and lock down the unvaccinated.
Ashton is a former Regional Director of Public Health for North-West England. He was speaking to GMB co-presenters Susanna Reid and Ed Balls. Yes, that Ed Balls, yet another politician turned broadcaster. I’ve said and written a lot about the recent trend of giving broadcast gigs to current and former holders of public office. It’s an outrage and an affront to democracy.
I know, I know, we don’t live in a democracy.
After saying that it might well come to that (locking up the un-jabbed), Ashton went on to say:
“We really need to get back to wearing masks, social distancing and yes (vaccine) passports but, you know this is not about erm civil rights. It’s about winning the battle with this virus.”
He then said, “we need to be vaccinating the primary school children.”
What a Nazi Ashton is. As for Ed Balls, his interviewing technique is as lamentable as his dancing. Balls is the goon who lost a dance-off on Strictly to Judge Rinder.
This is the second day in a row that the media has obsessed about whether the UK should punish the un-jabbed.
It’s coming, right?
Is it fair to lockdown the unvaccinated?
