Club Tropicana (CT remix '18)   Let me take you to the place Where membership's Britain's disgrace Blue flag with lots of stars. Where strangers take you by the hand And welcome you

In World War II the average IQ of the combat soldier was 100. In Parliament Square it was nineteen. N-n-n-n-nineteen.    

I remember a few people saying, some years ago when this was all kicking off, that maybe Brexit is what this country needs to finally move on from the Imperial past and embrace a global future. The fa

All meaningless hypothesis anyway considering the deal that’s going to get done will allow trade to continue as normal.

'Normal'

In the interest of fairness, has this been offset by the trade deals secured with Antigua and other such economic titans?

 

With a slightly less sneering tone, how has this drop in trade been reflected within the UK in terms of consumer choices? Have we seen any shortages as a consequence?

Well the difference is that we haven't introduced any real border checks yet and won't do until at least July and even then probably won't give us enough time to get a system up and running.

You can call it what you like but the EU have had an absolute nightmare on this. Their nature is as a protectionist bloc, they chose the wrong moment not to act as such.

There is never the wrong moment to act as a Kant but not a cunt.

We won’t get out of this madness by just looking after ourselves. It needs a worldwide effort in production and distribution of vaccines to get the pandemic under control and to prevent further deaths.

Nobody could make realistic predictions which vaccines would be developed and get approved first. The more important it should have been to distribute vaccines fairly to those at risk everywhere before making sure that all people can get vaccinated.

The next vaccine developed in Germany will be coming from Curevac and it looks like it will be approved in the next couple of months depending on the data including new mutants.

 Curevac are in a partnership with Bayer and received huge funding from the Gernan government. I wouldn’t be happy with any “Germans first” approach though.

If your government funded it then of course you should have it first. The U.K. helped fund the AZ and spent fuckloads on lots of vaccines, many of which have yet to come to fruition. ‘No one is safe until everyone is safe’ is very much a valid maxim but you have to look after your own people first. The EU were slower to sign certain deals with every nation having to sign off on it. It’s isn’t a benefit of having left the EU though, it’s something we could and would have done as a member of the EU.

The dates of the deals aren’t that much of a problem but the shortage of available vaccines worldwide. It’s even more of a problem if certain nations don’t export.

 I have no problem to wait to get vaccinated because of people more at risk in other nations needing it first.

Having said that there is a lot to be criticised about the handling of the pandemic right now. There is a lack of a much needed common approach to stop the spreading of the virus with a new wave approaching and the risk of further mutations.

The vaccination role out here in Germany is shambolic too. It’s lacking any “planning :lol: :lol: :lol:  who could have thought that you need a plan to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible as soon as vaccines got available.

Is there any what they could vaporise the vaccine? Then it could be administered as a gas. Then you could set up mass “vaccine” centres where millions of people could be “vaccinated”. You could transport people there in special transport trains. And vaccinate hundreds at a time in special “vaccination” chambers. Could the Germans organise that?

I’m not sure what you’re trying achieve with this post other than being a total fucking arsehole?
