Tories are denying Covid-19 test-and-trace system to disadvantaged people

Test and trace: if you’re credit’s not good, you don’t get to be part of it. The Tories are using Covid-19 to attack the poor again.

Typical Tories: if your credit isn’t good, you don’t get to take part in their new online test-and-trace system.

It doesn’t work anyway, so the penalty isn’t as bad as it may at first appear.

But it still represents an attempt to harm the poor – many of whom, amazingly, would still vote for their persecutors.

Disadvantaged groups may be excluded from the government’s online coronavirus test and trace system because it requires a credit reference database check to decide whether to deliver a home test, HSJ can reveal.

    what the hell has a good credit score got to do with this might i ask? is it going to cost money poorer people cant afford? i dont want this nasty govt knowing how much money ive got (as in over the amount they set to be eligible for this.)

    Bit of a topic hijack, but can someone ask, how is our nuclear deterrent working? I can’t imagine 2m distancing in a submarine….
    Unless of course the boat has been out at sea since before February.
    A Cv-19 outbreak on any submarine would be 100% contagious within a few days I’d imagine.

    in other words there going to leave a potential at risk group passing this about if one has it or comes into contact with a carrier, makes sense that does,, what would make even more sense is if some of these clowns faced a court to explain there negligence under oath with a risk of prison to help them jog there memory

    WT absolute F has a person’s credit rating got to do with their exposure to the virus ffs?

    What next?

    ”Sorry sir, NHS 111 is only available to those with a landline or a mobile phone contract, not pay and go customers, or those calling from a public phone”

    The longer this pandemic goes on, the more brainless these toerags become. I thought it was impossible to be any more dimwitted as they were pre-outbreak; how wrong I was…

    Fascist tories create another method of ensuring thousands and thousands of disadvantated women and men die from the coronavirus! More state instigated mass murder of so-called ‘not worth the value’ women and men!

    Still believe democracy exists???? It’s a myth because fascist little england now exists and everything revolves around money and fascist tories ridding themselves of worthless women and men!
