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

That made me rather angry when I read it. Similar to when various countries hoarded masks and other PPE by blocking through transit. It reeks of hypocrisy. "We're all about international cooperation and bilateral agreements and helping developing countries...until we aren't first in line for what we want". Then it's every man/country for himself.
Yes it is dreadful. But you have to place this in the context of Brexit- and that the UK chose to leave the EU, and chose, and then boasted very loud, making it a massive positive point 'that because of Brexit we were able to get our hands on the vaccine and approve it before all in the EU' blasted all over the Press/TV/Social media, etc. The EU chose to work together on the approval and the contracts to order large numbers- so in thise case, it is totally understandable.
