Nick Ferrari broke into a tirade over the possible introduction of pub passports on his LBC radio show. The veteran broadcaster hit out at the “extraordinary idea” suggested by Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday before adding “there will be no end to this.” He went on to question where the boundaries lie for such ideas jokingly asking would you need a passport for “cuddly wuddly with your husband?”.

Mr Ferrari told LBC listeners his frustrations following the comment by Boris Johnson during Wednesday’s Commons Liaison Committee meeting that it may be up to pub landlords to decide if they ask pub-goers to show proof they have been jabbed.

The LBC host said: “I told you before, there will be no end to this.”

He went on to say: “If I told you a little over 12 months ago that in 12 months time in 2021 it will be floated that you will need a special passport or chit to be allowed to go to the pub, you would have laughed at me.”

The LBC host went on to read messages from LBC listeners who thought the passport was a good idea.

But Mr Ferrari dispelled the idea from those listeners posing the question to them: “Where does this end?”

He then launched into an amusing list of activities that he wondered may require such a passport.

He said: “Do you need a special chit to go to the supermarket?”

He even jokingly asked if you would need a passport for “cuddly wuddly” with your husband.

Mr Ferrari’s comments come as Boris Johnson told the Commons Liaison Committee on Wednesday it may be up to pub landlords to decide if they ask pub-goers to show proof they have been jabbed.

Conservative MP William Wragg, chairman of the Commons Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee, asked the Prime Minister if “Covid vaccine certification” could be required for pub-goers.

Mr Johnson replied: “I think that that’s the kind of thing – it may be up to individual publicans, it may be up to the landlord.”

But trade body UK Hospitality branded the passport concept “simply unworkable” and said it could spark conflict between staff and customers.

Kate Nicholls, chief executive of UK Hospitality said: “It’s crucial that visiting the pub and other parts of hospitality should not be subject to mandatory vaccination certification.”

And Tory MP Steve Baker warned it could create a “two-tier Britain” for those who are unable to take up the vaccine for medical reasons.

Baker who is deputy chairman of the Covid Recovery Group of Tory lockdown sceptics said: “The Prime Minister began to tread a dangerous path when he opened the door to domestic Covid certificates.

“We must not fall into this ghastly trap.”
