This is going to be interesting.
“My body, my choice” seems to not be an option there any more. I can imagine that’ll ruffle a few feathers in civil liberties quarters? I can also imagine there will be a court case or two between now and February when their new law would kick in.
I wonder how the Austrians are going to enforce their new powers though. Are they going to do a stop-and-search for a Covid Pass? Are they going to batter people’s doors down? Or are they going to insist on a Covid Pass to enter any shop? The latter would be fun – just imagine the queues outside supermarkets of a Saturday! They’d have to paint a hexagram on the door of those evil law-breaking unvaccinated to prevent food deliveries too.
Our mob must be watching with a twinge of anticipation and a modicum of jealousy. They love to be at the top of the league when it comes to ordering people around – just look at the Nanny State Index.
If the Austrians get away with it, that precedent of course opens the floodgates.
I bet even now our mob are pondering the implications?
Implanted microchips anyone?
