It’s Time To Open Up International Travel. Now.

The international travel industry is dead. After two years of being effectively shut down, then made illegal, and then have rays of hope in the form of ridiculously limited traffic light systems cruelly ripped away, international travel from the UK is once again effectively impossible. A travel industry that was already on its knees is now fighting for its last breath, with absolutely zero clinical evidence, data or justification for it. But it is not too late to revive it. Enough is enough. It is time we stopped listening to the fearmongering zealots, it is time we demand real data, it is time we stopped pandering to Covid derangement syndrome and make a real, genuine risk assessment for ourselves, and it is time we revived travel for good. It is time international travel reopened, fully and without restrictions, now, before it really is too late.

Why Covid19 ‘Vaccine Passports’ For Travel Are Wrong.

Travel has always at it’s most fundamental level been about freedom. Over the years there have been necessary limitations on that freedom, for security needs or the purposes of public health for example, and by and large they have been reasonable and acceptable, but this newly proposed ‘vaccine passport’ for Covid19 is a step too far. It places unparalleled restrictions on our freedom to travel with no clear clinical justification, is immoral, unethical and even illegal in many countries, and should never be imposed on any traveller anywhere.

Why Air Travel Needs To Return To Normal Soon, And Also Why It Shouldn’t.

The Coronavirus pandemic has shut down the world on an unprecedented scale. Never before have so many borders been closed, airlines shut down and people all over the world faced social isolation and quarantine edicts on such a mass scale. But as time goes on it becomes increasingly imperative that airlines need to start flying again and return to normality as soon as possible, and yet at the same time it is clear that they should never be allowed to operate as normal again.
