"Views" are not science, and science does not support yours. They are not factual. How vaccines work is a matter of science, not a viewpoint. It's unfortunate that you choose to limit your life in this way, but it also means that you are a part of putting others at risk because vaccine-dodging variants grow in pools of unvaccinated people. You are not just making a choice for yourself, you are making a choice for others.

In this case I suspect it might just not have been fully thought through.

If my work demands a vaccine passport for in office work then **** that too.

I am not signing up to this experimental gene therapy.

I am willing to die on this hill, it’s important.
I have seen the thing about this been a experimental gene therapy a lot over the last month. I don't know where it has come from but it is totally false. The Mnra vaccines are not in anyway a form of gene therapy. In fact in many ways they are just a more advanced form of the traditional vaccine method. Please do some research from a good source.

I am currently sitting having a latte in Starbucks and I could not fail to hear the conversation next to me....two ladies in their early 30's were talking about not having the covid jab through choice, one said her brother was hopitalised with covid back in June 2020 but she classed it as nothing more than a bad resperative illness similar to pneumonia except his legs and joints hurt and that everything about covid has been blown out of proportion ...."well each to their own and freedom's of choice" etc but anyone who through their own choice (here in the UK at least) have not been vaccinated and then catches covid and has to be hospitalised should then have to pay for their treatment and rehabilitation...well they are my thoughts. ps I volunteered throughout the covid pandemic at a local hospital and it was like nothing I had ever witnessed before.

couldn't agree more, I just posed that same question to a rampant anti vaxxer mate of mine. He wants his freedom but seems unwilling to give up anything for it. I have zero respect for him and people who think like him anymore, especially the ones I'd expected better of.

And that is how they (those pushing the prevailing mainstream media agenda) will frame the likes of me in the battle.

Divide the population against each other, normalise the lockdowns and progressively taking away human freedoms until we are collectively not living, just existing.

Vaccine passports next, just a short step to Chinese style social credit scores and all that entails.

The world seems to be sleepwalking into this and I am not buying into it.

I am not getting “The Jab” for selfish reasons, I’m refusing it for spiritual reasons.

I’ve had a lot of time to think … and come to a very concrete conclusion on what is going on.

Vim, are you able to summarise what you think is going on? Who do you think is behind these plans, and why?

Thank you, my wife has had her first jab despite persistent high blood pressure issues. I wait in hope I am being wildly alarmist.

I remain defending The Hill regardless.

Research The Great Reset and follow on from there.

I’m not a big Tin Foil Hat conspiracy theorist but I’m convinced there is something behind the current general direction of world events.

It’s not good and I’m drifting further towards a religious way of countering it.
