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

The UK was lucky that the EU made this U-turn but luck is not a reliable long-term strategy.

When you wrote "The EU commission pissed almost everyone off" then who do you mean by "everyone", outside of Europe who commented?
Why lucky? It wasn't going to affect the supply chain of vaccines into mainland UK. The EU u-turn was, politically (and arguably morally, but meh, politicians) the only option if there wasn't going to be some horrid bureaucratic nightmare.

My usage of "almost everyone" was deliberate hyperbolic-idiom-for-effect based on what I've read about the reactions, both within the EU commission, and from UK leaders.

Key word "almost".
No, in this instance I didn't get their names/addresses.
