Competence

As someone who strongly supported the lockdowns and who might reasonably be called a vaccination zealot, there must be no vaccination of 12 to 15-year-olds without parental knowledge and consent.

If your answer is "Gillick competence", then that ought to be called "Thatcher competence" after the woman who fought to impose it rather than the woman who fought to prevent it. Along with the backlash against puberty blockers, but directly affecting vastly more people, this is our chance to get rid of it.
