'Kebab reward for youngsters to get jab is dubious but end justifies the means'


The scheme, which sees the government teaming up with business to also offer cab rides and cinema tickets to increase uptake of the Covid vaccine, is a great way to keep the momentum going

What do you call the scheme to reward youngsters who get the vaccine with fast-food, cab rides and cinema tickets?

Kebabs for Jabs, Taxis for Vaccis…

Anything that gets youngsters increasing the uptake of this vaccine is fine.

Even if the junk food and the rest of it is a bit dubious, this is very much a case of the end justifying the means.

We have summer coming up, where we need as many people as possible to be protected going into the winter.

That means doing everything necessary to get everybody sorted out.

This vaccine programme has been a fantastic success so far, something to be really proud of.

And any idea that keeps the momentum going is great.

Last weekend, pop-up walk-in centres all over the country saw another 600,000 get their jabs.

It’s starting to feel like we’re nearly there.

The Government is teaming up with businesses to make these offers of discounts.

And what’s on offer is not bad at all when you compare it with what’s going on around the world.

In Israel you get a beer, which is fair enough. In Malaysia, a free dessert. In Romania, a sausage sandwich.

Other areas prefer to use the stick rather than the carrot. One town in India told liquor sellers not to serve the unvaccinated.

In Indonesia you get a £300 fine, in the Philippines you can go to jail.

So think about that when you’re eating pizza in a taxi on the way to the cinema, rubbing your arm.

You’ve just been paid to be part of a world-class vaccination scheme.

Sometimes, more than sometimes, living here is pretty good.




The Ugly Side of Beauty

Today, we bring you the harrowing stories of women who have fallen victim to the Wild West of the beauty industry.

Many have been scarred for life by unauthorised, unregulated procedures that are carried out by unqualified practitioners.

You don’t need qualifications to carry out Botox treatment, fillers or non-surgical facelifts.

These are serious procedures and shouldn’t be left to someone who learned them on YouTube.

The law must be urgently tightened up to end the ugly side of the beauty business for good.
