The UK and Ireland should broker a bilateral deal to replace the controversial Northern Ireland Protocol
And I think the only way you're going to stop this is for the Irish and British government and the parties in Northern Ireland to get together and hammer out a deal and hand it to Brussels.
I think Pfizer was always a touch under £20.Just out of interest. The Novavax vaccine still hasn't had a deal signed with the EU after announcing a delay 21 days ago and announcing a deal to fill in the UK 18 days ago.
The EU is sorting out a new contract with Pfizer for more doses of their vaccine at a price that appears to be a hike to €19.50 a shot.
Incidentally if you have a look here
Look at section 4. Notice the incidence of blood clots in infected people who end up in hospital.
Bad form, I know, to quote but I then thought:I think Pfizer was always a touch under £20.
I love how effortlessly Pfizer has slipped under the outrage bus.
I want Merkel and Macron to be held accountable for their actions in the PXR after this debacle.You know all those AZ doses that the EU are crying about not receiving...well they can ship us Denmarks lot then...

A French EU lawmaker who chairs the European Parliament's fisheries committee told Reuters there could be no annual quota negotiation in a trade deal with Britain, sticking to a tough line from Paris that could make a Brexit deal more difficult.www.reuters.com
