I should clarify that I’m not referring to a passport to secure international travel (which is being widely considered) the ‘passport’ being discussed in the UK is for access to cinemas, theatres, concerts and sports venues and possibly pubs and restaurants.But we already know this. And it's not just the UK, many nations are considering this. I'm not worried. They may try to implement it but I doubt it will last.
There is (in effect) already an ID scheme for football, but what’s being discussed is on a different level and it’s a more thorough electronic surveillance scheme.
I might note, as Mozmar stated, there is in any case a further degradation of privacy (around medical records) about to happen in the UK—I’ve just found out that the ‘opt out’ isn’t as easy as was promised.
From what I’ve read the state is about to sell more personal NHS information to private data companies; guess what—the Covid passport scheme apparently being proposed is an extension of the NHS app.
