Boris Johnson braced for further fury over proposed vaccine passports that would be a ‘big ­cultural change’


PM BORIS Johnson is braced for further fury over proposed vaccine passports — after a senior minister admitted they would be a “big ­cultural change”.

Police minister Kit Malthouse could not rule out an expansion of the policy, set to target nightclubs, to other indoor venues such as ­restaurants and bars, like in some European countries.

The plan for vaccine passports has been met with fury

Covid cases continued to drop yesterday even as the nation enjoyed its renewed freedoms this weekend — triggering calls for the plan to be dropped.

Mr Malthouse told Times Radio: “We’re focusing very much on where we think there’s a high risk of contagion.”

But senior backbencher Tom Tugendhat joined the ranks of Tory MPs who are uncomfortable with the proposals.

He tweeted: “If we need a vaccine for events like a nightclub — why not to travel by train, or go to a shop?

“What other choices will result in denial of service?”
