Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Germany has had to break a contract with the EU to do so. Even vaccine they've ordered now won't be delivered until later than the UKs because the UK ordered much more quickly.

The fact the Germans aren't following the Ordung shows something is seriously amiss. They'd normally be the last to do such a thing.

So we've got more vaccine, more quickly and with earlier permission to start vaccinating. All due to brexit.

Remain politicians said going it alone with vaccine ordering was playing politics with peoples lives. They've got some explaining to do.
This is actually turning out to be a real scandal in Germany and the Low Countries. It illustrates perfectly what is wrong with the EU, wanting to take control of vaccine procurement, then putting so many of the eggs in the basket of the Sanofi vaccine for the sake of the optics of European unity, even though it's miles away from approval. Add to that the delay in getting other vaccines approved.

Same goes for ventilator procurement, the member state took control of that too eventually. At some point someone may work out how many lives this has all cost!!
