Unfortunately, the UK population the testing grounds for intrusive and totalitarian policies that will be implemented in the rest of Western Europe and, after that, the United States.
Many researchers warned about early on (when the COVID hysteria was reaching fever pitch) that the threat of a pandemic would be used to usher in methods of control the world has scarcely seen. Contact tracing, lockdowns, mandatory masks, and now COVID passports..
Everyone who warned us of what was coming was labeled “conspiracy theorists” by media, government “officials,” and hysterical citizens. Now contact tracing is in full effect, lockdowns have been ongoing for months, mandatory masks, and now COVID passports.
All these things were announced and unveiled by the same media outlets and government officials that denied the very possibility of their existence only a few months ago.
Already Big Tech is working with the UK government to create these passports.
Under discussion is the use of facial biometrics in order to prove which workers have had COVID.
One such tech firm is Onfido, a firm that specializes in facial biometrics has already delivered detailed plans to the government about what it is able to help accomplish on a nationwide basis. It claims that its proposals could actually be realized within a couple of months. The proposals state that the firm could use antigen or antibody tests.
It is telling that the World Health Organization is warning against “spreading false hope” with the immunity passport scheme. They argue we simply don’t know enough about how immunity develops after having had COVID. Yet the WHO and most countries are still going ahead with vaccine development.
Do you SEE where this is going?
We are actually witnessing a vaccine passport scheme, not an immunity scheme. “We don’t know enough about immunity” means having had COVID will not be enough to allow someone their “passport to freedom” as The Guardian has described it. However, the holy grail of vaccines will never be in question and we can offer a passport based upon proof of your vaccination. Predictably, this vaccine passport will extend to every other vaccine currently mandated by the governments of the “free world” upon its subjects.
Onfido claims that its new “COVID passport” could be the “linchpin of the new normality.”
The Guardian describes the scheme as follows:
Their solution would embed Onfido technology within another organization’s app to establish someone’s identity. The person would be asked to take a selfie and an image of their government-issued identification, such as a passport or driver’s license. The technology can determine whether the person’s face matches their ID, and also if the ID is genuine. This creates a digital identity.
They are then tested for coronavirus under a system endorsed by the government and the result is stored by another provider – in the UK this would most likely be the NHS.
When the person goes to their workplace, they open the app, take a photo of their face and that unlocks a QR code. That QR code would be scanned by reception using simple camera technology and on their system they would see the test result and a photo of the employee’s face for a short time, allowing them to visually determine the identity of the person in front of them.
The only technology a business would need to make this work would be a camera to take an image of the QR code as they arrive. No information about someone’s name, date of birth, address would be visible to the person on reception, only that they are fit to go into work.
A government source said a form of certification system is “still on the table and being considered” and that conversations around this concept fall under the government’s “track and trace” plans.
The list of ONFIDO investors includes Microsoft.
Right now, “Digital Identity experts” say they are only in the discovery phase of a plan that would be tailored to the needs of the UK government. Of course, if you believe that, I have some ocean front property to sell you in Arizona. Those plans have been in place for decades. All the UK government needed was the proper excuse to implement it.
