What now for the EU ?

They made the wrong choices, The U.K. didn’t, it used 2012 legislation to do what was needed. A good decision.

Nothing that couldn’t have been done since 2012. Not Brexit dependant.
That’s the same for all EU countries, but it’s rather telling that non of them did.

I know there’s a desperate scramble to portray brexit as a bad thing, but the simple fact is, since we left, we ran circles around the EU with the distribution of vaccines to the U.K. population, non of the post brexit scare stories have come true and there’s ever increasing polling showing no desire to rejoin the EU.

we voted to leave. We left. And our vaccination rollout was head and shoulders above the EUs.

onvioisly it hasn’t helped the EUs cause that they’ve acted like proper tw@ts in the process.

But you do accept that The U.K. were perfectly legally entitled to start and self authorise a vaccine programme regardless of Brexit?

I sense that you are becoming a little unhinged, with your swearing and accusations.

You upped this into an unnecessary argument by wrongly calling me a liar and are now talking about Spoty.
Well Constable Savage, as stated earlier: the chance of the UK doing its own (world-beatingly successful) vaccine programme while still in the EU is the same as me shagging the entire FHM Top 100 Sexiest Women 2021 list by next week: possible, but unlikely in the extreme.

What part of "no longer part of the EU institutions" do you struggle to understand? If you think the UK would have gone its own way with the vaccines if still within the EU then you are less than one balloon away from full-retard.

But still, Boris grrrrr eh? Now toodle off and arrest some farmers for having the temerity of blocking their fields from some nice Irish travelling families trying to set up a Ford Transit redistribution centre.
 
Is that related to Brexit or just something we always had?

I’ve not seen anything that says we couldn’t have achieved the same pre Brexit.
Considering Brexit has been hated by Whitehall (ministers & civil service) from day one, that's a 'possible' no.

However, ministers & civil service knew they had to respond swiftly, behind the scenes in cabinet could've been headless chickens in the early Covid stages however ensuring the task force was rapidly setup was crucial to it's current success including ensuring the best available were sourced or relocated within other sectors.

But you do accept that between leaving the EU and 31/12/20, we were in the transition period and still subject to EU rules. So the vaccination success could have been achieved regardless of Brexit.
Could have. Could also have been done by any other EU country. Funny old thing they didn’t. You also know that if we had still been members we wouldn’t have done either because we would have been signed up to all the nonsense Ponzi schemes that the EU demanded its victims join.
 
Because Bozo is trying to change a protocol after he signed it with The EU. One he told us was great and would involve no checks either way with that section of the tiny island in The North Atlantic.

I will repeat a reply I made days ago, on the same subject, which you:

  • Were too stupid to understand it
  • Wilfully ignored it
  • Are just a complete b@wbag
When the EU made a complete James Hunt of themselves by triggering Article 16, before sh1tting their pants and cancelling it.

The UK / Johnson should have told the EU to ram the Brexit Agreement so far up their ARRSE that it tickled their tonsils.

It is to Johnson's credit that he is trying to change the protocol, rather than cancelling it completely based on the EU's clusterfcuk,.

I agree with you.

However, as it is my thread - I reserve the right to show him up for the mutant that he is
 
Lastly you can explain why you are being such a tit.

A wee dit ( sod all to do with the thread )

Away back in the midst of time ( early 80's ) their was an RMP who had a way with words. Such was his way with words that he ( allegedly :) :) ) got rattled all around a PVCP.

I can neither confirm or deny that I was inside PVCP when ( alleged ) rattling took place.

I can confirm that the ( alleged ) rattler of said RMP went on to become a WO1 ( RSM )

I think b@wb@g has brain damage from said ( alleged ) rattling around PVCP.
 
Good Moaning,
.......and then there's this.
Oh boy how to make friends and influence people.
now just a little tickle
It seems our erstwhile one time defender of "Parliamentary Democracy" has decided he isn't truly a Conservative any more. Yes Bercow's gone to his Socialist spiritual home- which we all knew in any case during his speakership.
ETA that I was under the impression that the EP had put the EU China agreement on hold in any event because of CHina's HR issues.

Page 1729. It is the smallest number expressible as the sum of two cubes in two different ways (1 cubed plus 12 cubed [1+1728] and 9 cubed plus 10 cubed [729+1000]), anyway, I digress. Where is Schuman buried? I need a p*ss.

If the EU are still on the go in 2030, I think that would qualify as a miracle to get Schuman a sainthood. Then a mortician could beautify his bones as he gets beatified. 'Medic, emergency alcohol please'

The just-launched Conference of the Future of Europe must “establish a Union fit for purpose” in a world increasingly driven by authoritarian and “big beast attitudes,” Guy Verhofstadt, the European Parliament’s chair for the conference told its opening plenary session Saturday.

Does that mean it was previously unfit for purpose ? :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Verhofstadt warns world is ‘no longer centred around the EU.’

It never was - You deluded belter.
