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

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 is 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.
I think this proves that in your eyes the EU can do no wrong. Just like their ventilator sharing program and their financial stimulus program, the EU has managed to screw up their vaccine roll out too. You wanted to see "JUST ONE" benefit of Brexit, well here's one staring you right in the face!!

They've screwed up so badly that now they're looking to correct it through any means necessary, whether that is leaking misinformation to a German newspaper on the efficacy of the AstraZeneca vaccine, or trying to blame AstraZeneca for late delivery of a vaccine that STILL hasn't been approved.

The EU wanted it to be a European effort so backed French company Sanofi even though their vaccine is miles away from approval, rather than ordering more from Pfizer/Biotech, as ever ideology over reality has been their undoing. Then they spent so long haggling over price that they missed their place in the queue.

The EU "chose" to work together, which is why Hungary has just bought a load of Sputnik V. The EU proving once again that the Emperor has no clothes. How you can try and turn this around on the UK is quite simply nuts!
