Long queues at Son Dureta vaccination point

Long queues at Son Dureta vaccination point.

The Balearic government have reason to be cheerful this weekend...they have scored quite a notable victory. The long queues outside Son Dureta hospital on Friday underlined the fact that their tactics have worked. Asking bars and restaurants to demand the Covid passport from yesterday meant that hundreds if not thousands of people who were not vaccinated had little option but to get the jab. It was a question of no Covid passport....no restaurant.

This tactic has worked far better than any campaign asking if not demanding that those who were not vaccinated get the jab. The Balearic government are deeply concerned at the sudden rise in cases and the blame has been placed firmly at the door of those who are not vaccinated. Infact, the government had even blamed the non-vaccinated for putting Christmas at risk. Now, if they had ordered the unvaccinated to get the jab the whole process would have ended in the law courts. But, no.

Someone in the Consulat del Mar (the Balearic government HQ) had a cunning plan and it worked a treat! At the moment the Covid passport is limited to just bars and restaurants which have a capacity in excess of fifty people....but the list could grow. For the unvaccinated who are now getting their first jab it could mean that they have a long wait....because they will have to wait for their second jab and ofcourse their Covid passport so Christmas could be on hold for them or at least in a restaurant. The medical profession has said that the Covid passport is the way forward and the Balearic government and their cunning plan has taken their word for it.

The unvaccinated ghettos will appear soon. They will be gradually 'eased' in as we are seeing with all other restrictions. In the UK BUPA does not cover any vaccine side effects as you are deemed to be taking part in a medical trial. You will have to wait until mid to late 2023 for your trial to end.

Have you studied the recent release of the results of Pfizer trials (yes the ones they applied to have hidden for 50+ years). They have been released under a freedom of information request in the States. Not quite what we were led to believe.

The way this is written is even sickening of the force they used. The laughing of those who supported it watching people be forced into submission. It's hard to watch and I fear will be one of those things we see in the news 20 years from now and shake our heads wondering 'How did that happen?'

Firstly your information regarding bars is wrong. Secondly, it seems that you are in agreement with governments using “cunning” plans get the general public to do as they demand. I presume you will have no objection to a right wing government using the same methods. Thirdly, I do not expect you to publish this comment.

657 1st doses over the weekend is not a win for the government
