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

I thought he was referring to the $445 million dollars that the German government paid to BionTech to help finance the vaccine development and research.
That is totally independent of any purchase agreements and didn’t involve the EU at all.

Yep.

Brexit had nothing to do with the vaccine deployment in the UK. The UK gov't, for once, got ahead of the curve with their order. Brexit could have meant that the EU orders were fulfilled over non-EU. Thankfully it did not. It was understood that a pandemicmwas coming, but that it would be Flu based, not SARS. Hence the huge additional order of flu vaccines by last July too.


Not a list of who voted, merely a list of all the Brexity benefits. Only that's probably not as funny as taking pot shots.
