Sorry, it was meant to be rhetorical, I'm well aware of who the loon is, just question his current importance...

Is he still making a noise?...

Apparently offering baby/child sitting services-must be broke by now, still, the joys of being a useful idiot should be flagged up!

Yes, he is back at Westminster bellowing when the BBC News camera fires up!
 
I think he hopes to replace Screamin' Lord Such but is too thick to know what that really meant.
He did try to emulate him. Stood in our constituency in the 2019 GE for the Limp Dems and polled a whole 949 votes!

This from the Express, also quoting the Telegraph, citing the view of the head of Sanofi:

“Brexit DID 'help Britain' win race to approve COVID-19 vaccine, says pharmaceutical boss”

“BREXIT may have helped the UK become the first country in the world to authorise a coronavirus vaccine and could put Britain at the "front of the queue" for future drugs, according to a leading pharmaceutical firm boss.

Hugo Fry, the managing director of Paris-based drug giant Sanofi, said "nimble buying" and next week's planned COVID-19 jab roll-out had all been possible because the UK was no longer bound by the red tape of the European Union's regulatory and purchasing mechanisms. Britain's Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has approved the jab developed by Pfizer and BioNTech while the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has yet to do so for the EU.

And Mr Fry said Britain's MHRA had set a precedent by assessing the vaccine on an emergency basis and completing several months' work in just a few weeks.

He said: "It's a good example of what they can do when they put their mind to it.
"There is no doubt whatsoever that the UK has one of the most respected and best regulatory agencies for medicines in the world.
"This shows that if you sit down with the MHRA and discuss the pathway and a potential rapid agreement going forward, it can potentially bring really good innovative medicines very quickly to UK patients."

Mr Fry, who opposed Brexit, also praised the UK Vaccines Taskforce which has secured access to 357 million doses of vaccines from seven different manufacturers.
He told the Telegraph: "They've been fast and they got a really nice selection and they got good volumes.
"I'm not convinced that if they'd been part of that European buying programme they'd have had quite the speed and the flexibility to do it.
"The fact that the UK was able to do it in a single deal meant that it got its deal done before France and before Germany. It's more efficient."

Say it ain't so, Sam :) :)

I put is down to the hard work and diligence of all those who refused to move to Amsterdam :):)
 
Britain has accused the European Union of making “eleventh hour” demands to seal a Brexit deal, warning it could scupper an imminent agreement.

Government sources said that Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief negotiator, had called for further concessions from Britain on post-Brexit subsidy rules at a meeting with Lord Frost yesterday afternoon.


Time to escort Barnier from the premises, preferably at the sharp end of a size 12 boot.

My own view is that Macron is now deliberately trying to sabotage the talks.

I cannot disagree with your logic. The obvious question has to be why ?

1. The EU is standing on the brink - Why would you recklessly try and sabotage something that could be equally beneficial ?

2. If he stands for President and gets re-elected - Dianne Abbot would have been counting the votes.

3. Is he so deluded that he thinks that by being a c**k and screwing over the other EU States, this will get him a top job at the EU when he gets hoofed in 2022 ?

I could understand acting tough for domestic consumption with a view to the upcoming Presidential election, Acting tough does not equate to a miracle though.

Causing further ructions throughout the rest of the EU seems to be a highway to hell for him also.

I could also put my tinfoil hat on and muse out loud that he is a secret FSB agent :) :)

Could it just be a simple hatred of the British ingrained in him because he's French.
He tweeted about Maradona praising him for defeating "Thatcher's England" in the World Cup.

Of course the French fool completely forgot who Thatcher's Britain had completely defeated only 4 years before.

I think that Macon thinks that by effectively blockading the UK via the short straits from 01/01/21, he will get us crawling back to re-open negotiations on his terms within 4-6 weeks. Even Simon Coveney has warned him that this is madness and that the UK cannot be forced back to the negotiating table like this. Also, any blockade of Dover-Calais will displace that trade to Belgian and Dutch ports, probably never to return to Calais. This will give Marine Le Pen and open goal in next years' Presidential Election.
