Whatever news comes in the next 12-24hrs, or indeed days on #vaccinepassports in #Britain, we say this:

🔴 Until the Government *completely abandon* the #COVID19 #testandtrace app for businesses; large scale event venues incl theatre, nightclubs, stadia et al -

& most importantly, use of the #NHS app for international #travel, we will *never* be free of #vaccinepassports in society.

🔴 There is fundamentally *no difference* between their use at home or abroad. If we rationalise intl, we argue for them domestically -

🔴 Granted, it would be significant to have rid domestic society of these measures, we *must remain vigilant* & avoid a false sense of security.

Simply put, we cannot trust this Government.

These measures could re-emerge as quickly as they've been funded & developed to date.

The threat we, citizens of the world, are facing, is rather simple.

If we do not open our economies, including #Travel , now in summer when the third wave of the pandemic is behind us, we may never open again. 1/3
#unitedkingdom #USA #Europe
For example in #Finland , our government by @MarinSanna and authority, @AVItwiittaa , are dragging their feet in removing restrictions in Helsinki, our biggest city.

This despite the fact that hospitals are practically free of #COVID19 patients! 👇 2/3
So, the medical emergency, used to justify the restrictions, has clearly passed.

Alas, if restrictions are not removed now, they are aimed at accomplishing something else than suppressing #coronavirus .

Then we have only one option left: rebellion! 😤⚔️🥊

Public service announcement. Having just travelled to Portugal & returned, here is my travel advice which is clearer than the Govt. 1. Get a PCR test with certificate in order to board in UK. Must be on Govt approved list. (Range seems to be £80-150).
Print this off onto paper for check-in. Handing over phones is a faff. 2. Fill in a passenger locator form to go (noone told me this but can be done on the plane). 3. To return you only need an antigen test. €35+. 48 hours before. I got results within two hours. Print this too.
4. Book a two day test online from the govt list £40+. NB risk- A friend did this and it still wasn't allowed at check-in so was told to rebook. I used Expert. Make sure you fill in a return passenger locator form using the booking reference for the test before going to airport.

🧵Thanks to @EerkeBoiten & @leoniedelt for pointing out the #NHS app 'Privacy Notice' changes re: #COVID19 vaccination status.

🔵 Since April 12th, we've encouraged customers to avoid the app & sign-in to a contact book which is their legal right to do so.

🔵 We view the use of the #NHS T&T app not solely as a public health measure, but to observe/measure compliancy for future use of #vaccinepassports in society.

Since May 17th, what we've seen 'go live' alongside international travel is very concerning...
🔵 As @EerkeBoiten pointed out, there's a separate 'Privacy Policy' re: COVID-status certification & your rights.

We *shouldn't* be seeing any categorisation re: vehicle reg, NI, employer, occupation, & also 'Special Categorisation' about physical/mental health condition.

#Pangot, a tiny hamlet in #Uttarakhand that hosts hundreds of variety of birds and very few humans…

By @Kavitamajumdar
@Kavitamajumdar The heat is upon us, and like the Britishers, we too need to flee from the scorching plains and make a beeline for the hills during the unbearable summer months.

#Pangot #Uttarakhand
@Kavitamajumdar Luckily, there are plenty of hills one can visit, particularly around #Delhi, but alas, most of these destinations are so well-known that, at times, they can get more crowded than the very city you wanted to escape.

The forgotten little town of #Bundi in #Rajasthan is a treasure waiting to be unearthed…

By @Kavitamajumdar Image
@Kavitamajumdar Flanked by the #AravalliHills on one side, #Bundi possesses all the charms sought by travellers who want to escape from the urban space.

@Kavitamajumdar Narrow village lanes, old houses painted in blue to keep them cool during the summer months, a few cows ambling away with not a care in the world, some surprisingly decent cafes, a rustic old palace and a fort that provides brilliant views of the town.

TRAVEL HACKS 2 - from my experience to 22 countries & >150 hotel stays so far.

Heard of Tripit app? Allows you to keep itineraries, tickets, reservations etc in one place instead of scrolling thru endless emails. Just import all your confirmation emails.

My Best - bougie on a travel budget hack; private jet vibes. Fly Boutique Air -surprisingly cheap & unique option for domestic travel within the US on a small jet. I flew Baltimore to Pittsburgh & had only 2/6 filled & was only $42 (one way). Fly private at the cost of commercial
Hotel Hack: Get all the perks of a luxury hotel for a fraction of the price by staying at a sister hotel

The hack: Many hotels have sister hotels in same area; cheaper but still allow guests to use all the amenities like pool, restaurant, free breakfast etc at the 5-star hotel👇🏾
