This hint that the government may enact mandatory vaccinations caused many members of parliament (MP) in the Conservative Party to revolt openly.
MP Peter Bone from England’s East Midlands region called the idea “completely outrageous” during an interview with BBC. “I’d be the first to say the PM should go” if it were implemented, he said.
MP Alexander Stafford from the northern English region of Yorkshire said he “cannot and will not support mandatory vaccinations.”
Multiple members of Johnson’s cabinet have also quietly expressed opposition to the proposal.
“Everyone agrees it’s not the way forward,” said one member of the government who spoke with British mainstream media outlet The Telegraph.
“You would think it was only people like [Nazi doctor] Josef Mengele who would champion injecting people against their will,” said another government insider. “This is fascist nonsense and should be shunned by any freedom-loving man or woman in this country.”
