Kirstie Allsopp furiously vows to boycott shops and pubs over vaccine passports

Television presenter Kirstie Allsopp has vowed to boycott pubs, shops and theatres if the government brings in vaccine passports.

The 49-year-old star furiously told fans it's a "step too far" to ask for proof someone has had the jab.

She took to her Twitter account to make her feelings crystal clear in a lengthy message about the potential passport.

The Location, Location, Location presenter wrote: "Vacation [vaccination] certificates have long been an accepted part of international travel, but I will not enter a UK pub, shop or theatre that requires medical information before serving me or my family, nor will I vote for any party that supports this, it is a step too far."

"Because we can ask those who are not vaccinated not to go to the pub until their turn arrives. Because we can decide that trust, and personal assessment of risk is important.

"Because we can be a nation of liberty and curtesy or we can become one of draconian laws."

She continued: "I will lose out and it will cause problems with work. But a Post Covid world in which our Government legislates not for safety, but because it polls well, is one that makes me very nervous indeed. Everyone has their lines, this is mine."

"God knows I want to support all those business that have suffered, but does that takes us down the very rocky road to B&B owners who won’t take LGBT+ couples?

"Are we heading to a world where your first drink in a pub aged 18 must require a jab?"

It is currently being reviewed as to whether people will have to show proof of having had the coronavirus vaccine to enter buildings and venues in the future, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson expected to address the topic on Monday.

While some aren’t sure, others have pointed out the benefits, especially for locations like music venues and theatres.

Property expert Kirstie's post divided her 425,200 followers, with some disagreeing with the star.

One person penned: "It’s not for life it’s until the country is vaccinated. If you choose not to it’s your choice but if it’s a matter of checking in as we do now with our phones it’s hardly gonna be that much of an inconvenience. If it helps the country why not."

Others agreed with her, with one commenting: "I cannot believe how many people actually think that vaccination passports in exchange [sic] for a normal life is acceptable. Has everyone gone mad ?"

"Completely agree." another said. "I won’t be spending money in any UK establishments that require proof of being vaccinated.

"For international travel, countries often require certain vaccines before you’re allowed to enter."
