Tony Blair Calls for Creation of “Digital ID” in Post-Coronavirus World

An Orwellian proposal.

Published

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair called for western societies to implement a form of “digital ID” in the post coronavirus-world to prevent individuals from spreading the disease, through a system that Blair seems to suggest would allow figures of authority to instantly access the medical information of their underlings.

The neoliberal-era establishment politician was speaking virtually at the COGX Conference on Tuesday.

What we’re saying in this paper is you can create a digital ID today that is much more easily protected, so you can deal with a lot of the privacy and surveillance issues that worry people. It’s a natural evolution of the way that we’re going to use technology in any event, to transact daily life. This COVID crisis gives an additional reason for doing that.”

Blair claims that in order to restart businesses and international travel, “you need to know people’s disease status.

Unless you’re able to record some of this data in a way that people can use, it’s going to be difficult to go back to anything like a near normal in things like transport. So, if you’re going to start international travel again, how do you do that, unless people can be easily tested and have some record of that test?”

Blair’s proposal doesn’t even seem to avoid the mere appearance of fundamentally violating traditional civil liberties, openly forcing the public to disclose personal medical data in the name of disease prevention.

Blair admitted the pandemic had proved a useful tool in advancing his vision for a “digital ID-” a proposal he says he has always supported. “I think there’s always been a good case for introducing some form of digital ID, but I think that case is even more powerful today.

Quite obviously, making individual medical information accessible on such a standardized and seemingly compulsory basis would be a severe violation of the traditional ethics of medicine practiced in western society.

Commentators broadly affiliated with the political and media elite have increasingly supported proposals that seem to resemble Blair’s, with some suggestions for the mass implementation of biological “microchips” to allow employers to monitor their employees at any time of the day.

Polish Election: National Conservative President Andrzej Duda Leads, Will Face Soros-Linked Liberal Challenger in Runoff

Poland’s President won the first round of the runoff.

Published

Poland’s national conservative President, Andrzej Duda, will face liberal Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski in a runoff election in July. Duda, of the Law and Justice Party, recieved a strong electoral plurality in the first round of elections, taking just under 44%. Trzaskowski recieved 30%, and will be the sole candidate competing against Duda in the runoff elections.

Trzaskowski favors further integrating Poland with the European Union, and has pitched his candidacy to global liberal western elites irritated by euroskeptic and nationalist sentiment in Poland. He’s attended the globalist Bilderberg Conference, and received a scholarship from the Soros Foundation in the early 90’s as a student.

Trzaskowski also led the movement within the country to resettle thousands of Middle Eastern refugees in Poland during the 2015 migrant crisis, a policy that was overturned after Duda took office that year.

Duda has campaigned on reforming the nation’s judiciary, resisting political imperatives from unelected European Union bureaucrats in Brussels(without calling for the Eastern European nation to leave the EU), and opposition to attempts to promote a western-style cultural agenda in Poland. Duda has spoken against the promotion of homosexual ideology in the country, comparing the previous generation’s experiences living under communism to the liberal agenda. “They didn’t fight for this so that a new ideology would appear that is even more destructive,” said Duda in a campaign rally earlier this month.

Various other political parties competed in the first round elections, including other right-wing and conservative parties, who marshaled approximately 9% of the vote combined. If Duda can unite voters inclined to vote for parties to the right of Law and Justice, he stands a strong chance to cruise to an easy victory with more than 50% of the vote.
