Just goes to confirm how independent the Independent really isn't!

Still, it's good that the EU are trying to catch up with us. Competition always benefits the consumer.

It's not just the so-called "Independent" though, there's a whole bunch of them including the BBC & Sky that have the same blatant bias.

Here's another example of the BBC using theirs.

Eurocrats were pouring over their contract with the UK-based drugs giant after a row over the supply of Covid jabs to the bloc descended into acrimony. Senior Commission officials believe the firm could be in breach of the terms it signed up to after supplying European-made doses to the UK. EU chiefs are furious that millions of Britons have received jabs while European capitals are struggling to roll out their own programmes.
Always read the small print, seems they do not and and up with egg on their faces. Maybe they do but no comprende.

Even experts can get it wrong.

Our media seem to delight in finding these so-called "experts" that get it wrong.
So much so that you can buy the tee-shirt (Thanks to Amazon):

Isn't that typical. They are ORDERING AZ to divert vaccines from the UK to the EU.

I suppose that after 40 years of doing it, they are used to ordering us about, and AZ is a British company!

AstraZeneca has it's HQ here in the UK but it is Anglo-Swedish, formed by a merger in 1999 between Sweden's Astra and our Zeneca (which itself was the result of an ICI demerger).


The wholy-British GlaxoSmithKlein is currently running 3rd stage trials of a Covid-19 vaccine in collaboration with the Canadian Medicago.
The plan is to produce over a million doses this year, made here in the UK and in the USA, Canada and Europe.
The ongoing hope is to produce over a billion doses per year soon.

One of GSK's other collaborations with Sanofi has proven not to be as effective as hoped and this has, as we now know, delayed production of that until later this year at best.
The other GSK collaboration with the Chinese Clover has started stage 2/3 trials too though.

If things weren't so desperate you could have a right good laugh at EU.

Shall I tell you what immediately came into my mind as I read through his words?

Hitler banging his fist on the table.

This sort of thing really makes me feel elated!

Boris: don't you dare go soft.
