DMcG BS: Brexit & other UK political topics (2812* d) RE: BS: Brexit & other UK political topics 06 Jul 21


Vaccine-refusers are the people who really should be getting it in the neck from the rest of us.

I broadly agree. We have to remember that the benefits of the vaccine is far less clear cut for with those with a compromised immune system, of course, but otherwise I don't have much sympathy with refusers.

But it gets down to the same issue as masks, surely? I accept you should not be legislating to enforce vaccination, but to what extent should you be able to refuse services to people who will not? There are interesting notices from cruise companies, some of whom are requiring all passengers to be double vaccinated before boarding and some are not. That's a specific example of a general problem. They are trying to find the set of rules that maximises their custom as every pub and restaurant and theatre will also be trying to do.

The individual liberty versus general social benefit balance is rarely a simple one.
