Dangerous anti-mask campaigners have daubed potentially life-threatening graffiti on a busy main road in Southport.

The sign which usually boasts a tourism promotion has been covered in graffiti reading ‘masks > vaccine > microchip. Please wake up’ in an apparent attempt to claim that the government-mandated wearing of masks to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus will lead to an Orwellian style microchipping future.

There is zero evidence that any coronavirus vaccine will be used by the government to microchip members of the public.

The baffling message has been seen by thousands of people driving in and out of the resort after it was painted on a sign between Liverpool Road and the Coastal Road this morning

OTS News understands concerned local councillors have asked Sefton to remove the graffiti as a matter of urgency
