hightail isn't the only one to think that. From this article:
It is not yet known whether use of the app would be mandatory or voluntary. “A mandatory smartphone app would be a significant measure, both legally and culturally,” the lawyers said. “Our view is that there would need to be a clear and detailed legal basis for a mandatory system, set out in specific legislation.”
Anyone heard owt about even 'official claimed total numbers of people tested ... which vanished
or any 'claims about hitting the 200,000 target of johnsons by tomorrow
let alone why Cummings lock down abuses' supporter Minister (Housing secretary) Jenrick who can and has apparently moved between three homes throughout the lockdown:
* Newark (his constituency)
* His the seventeenth century manor house rural Herefordshire? which to be his 'home' despite allegedly representing Newark in Notts
* Let alone travelling for over an hour to his parents house to 'deliver food to his starving desperate parents (sic)
Certainly makes a mockery of those who did resign to ensure there was no mixed messages regarding governments 'stay at home' instruction ..
.. Let alone visiting 'second homes' ... must be because he visited 3/4 rather than 2
Mine too as long as that remains an option but I fear a situation where it becomes compulsory if you want to use public transport, enter shopping centres, even access medical care such as dentists, opticians etc. The government won't need to be seen as heavy handed if other sectors decide to put in their own rules. I can afford to buy a (relatively) cheap phone to download the app onto and leave it at home unless it's needed. Many can't possibly do that.
