YouGov say that yesterday (25 Oct) they asked 3659 adults in GB "Would you support or oppose NHS staff being required to be double vaccinated against Covid-19?"

and got the following results:

 
God help us!
This question is fuel indeed for those who are whipping up racism in the population.
 
Note that among those who favour this ramping up of fascism, "strong" support is outdoing a mere "tendency" to support by 2:1, whereas among those who oppose it, "strong" opposition and a "tendency" to oppose are level.
 
Imagine being such a knuckledragging bonehead! But if this sample is representative, more than half of the British population don't have to imagine it.

That a policy of compulsory vaccination of NHS staff would mean sacking refusers, and refusers are more widespread in the black population than the white population, and sacking refusers would mean that white patients would be cared for less often by black nurses, isn't lost on my edited by moderator neighbour at all.

@Hardliner - Moderator - What's the problem here? My neighbour is a racist Powellite. Enoch Powell was a known racist whose famous speech was in opposition to the Race Relations Bill. I know my neighbour. You don't.

Ever since the ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech, common wisdom in Britain has had it that Powell’s intervention not only wrecked his own career but wrecked any possibility of a full or frank immigration debate in Britain for at least a generation. So lurid were Powell’s terms and so dire his warnings that anybody concerned about immigration for evermore risked being tarred as a ‘Powell-ite’. Certainly parts of Powell’s speech made it too easy for his political opponents to attack him and gave far too much cover for people way to his political right. But among the things most striking when reading his speech—and the reactions to it—today are the portions for which he was lambasted that now seem almost understated: for instance, Powell’s insistence that there was a street in Britain on which only one white woman was living. In subsequent interviews and discussions the case of this woman was widely dismissed as a fabrication because it was believed that no such street could exist. However, if anyone had suggested to Powell in 1968 that he should use his Birmingham speech to predict that within the lifespan of most people listening those who identified as ‘white British’ would be in a minority in their capital city, he would have dismissed such an advisor as a maniac. As was the case in each of the other European countries, even the most famous prophet of immigration doom in fact underestimated and understated the case.

The NHS is already grossly inefficient and was so before the "pandemic". Sacking unvaccinated staff would finish it off.

And how accurate is YouGov? Those who observe election campaigns might be a bit cynical about that.

I am registered with YouGov and completed this survey a couple of days ago.  On many occasions, including this one, I have answered the one question that a far llows comments by criticising the biased design of the questions which deliberately elicit responses supportive of the govt narrative.  I recall far less than 75% supportive when I answered it. 

Still with YouGov owned by the Zahawi family what do we expect ?
