Boris Johnson braced for further fury over proposed vaccine passports that would be a ‘big ­cultural change’


PM BORIS Johnson is braced for further fury over proposed vaccine passports — after a senior minister admitted they would be a “big ­cultural change”.

Police minister Kit Malthouse could not rule out an expansion of the policy, set to target nightclubs, to other indoor venues such as ­restaurants and bars, like in some European countries.

Covid cases continued to drop yesterday even as the nation enjoyed its renewed freedoms this weekend — triggering calls for the plan to be dropped.

Mr Malthouse told Times Radio: “We’re focusing very much on where we think there’s a high risk of contagion.”

But senior backbencher Tom Tugendhat joined the ranks of Tory MPs who are uncomfortable with the proposals.

He tweeted: “If we need a vaccine for events like a nightclub — why not to travel by train, or go to a shop?

“What other choices will result in denial of service?”
