Responding to the Night Time Industries Association, Scotland are launching a legal challenge against the Scottish Government’s Covid ID card policy, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Alex Cole-Hamilton said:

“Rather than recognise that Covid ID cards are not an effective or proportionate solution, the Scottish Government have expanded the scope of the policy sucking in a host of venues who did not expect to be included.

“No wonder the night time industry is in uproar. They’re being treated as disposable by the Government.

“It’s a shame that the willingness of the industry to work on jointly acceptable solutions is not matched by SNP ministers. Hopefully this legal action will turn out to be last orders for this illiberal Covid ID card scheme.

“The Scottish Government should cut their losses and plough the resources that are going into this wasteful scheme into fixing our testing and tracing operation and ringing all of those who have yet to have two doses of the vaccine to encourage them to book an appointment.”

    Good luck with your legal action.
    May I point this out to you… received by myself in response to a government petition

    “Responding to the Government’s response, the Chair of the Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee, William Wragg MP, said:

    “With recent analysis suggesting that vaccinated people carry as much of the virus as the unvaccinated into any setting, the disappointing lack of any scientific basis for the Government’s decision to go ahead could reasonably lead people to conclude that there is in fact no such basis. If the real goal is to drive vaccine uptake, then it is a deeply cynical approach that will be counterproductive.”

    Absolutely… infection control, abandoned in favour of ” incentivizing” or coercion to you and me. ….. bullying people into vaccination in order to attend an event.
    Why are the medical profession so silent ? There’s no science behind these measures and the fact that people may request a vaccine, an invasive medical procedure, in order to go clubbing….is surely ethically wrong .

  • With regards to your legal challenge to the Scottish Government’s vaccine passport proposals…… your legal team may wish to take note of the following:
