As an author, I organise book launches and conferences occasionally. As a musician, I play at venues occasionally. I do not think it is right to discriminate against those who either can not or choose not to have the jab. To force people to have a vaccine passport is tantamount to coercion and bully-tactics, in order to force people to “grab the jab”. There is no evidence that being vaccinated would make you safer to be around than someone who hasn’t been vaccinated. This is illegal and violates human rights and I pledge not to play in our lecture at any venue that supports Covid passports. Furthermore, I refuse to ask anyone who attends my events to show me any kind of passport. “I will not be pushed, stamped, indexed, briefed, de-briefed or numbered… my life is my own”
