Brexit advocate Nigel Farage warns fresh COVID restrictions and forced vaccinations are on their way for the winter.

Speaking on his GB News show on Saturday, the former Brexit Party leader said there has been a massive increase in talks about coronavirus. In Britain, restrictions were lifted in July, placing COVID in the rear-view mirror for many in the country.

However, with Scotland implementing vaccine passports, Farage believes this will be used to justify papers for all of the U.K. This is something that had been taken off the table following massive public backlash in September.

I will not be showing any vaccine passport to go and buy a pint. It is an infringement on our liberties.

About 80 percent of eligible British citizens are fully vaccinated against COVID. Meanwhile, cases are reportedly averaging less than 45,000 a day across the country.
