EVEN we had no concept of the true scale of the EU’s scandalous and illegal efforts to take British vaccines.
We now understand that not just did our Federal government sign a water tight contract for 100million doses from AstraZeneca months before Brussels signed their far weaker and woollier deal.

But UK taxpayers put ₤ 21million into the Dutch factory at the centre of the dispute– while the EU refused to chip in a single euro.
The Oxford jabs group cautioned the Dutch federal government of supply shortages without an ₤ 8.5 million injection to scale up production.
The Dutch said No.
So the EU paid nothing, signed an ambiguous contract too late, then trashed AstraZeneca’s vaccine and blamed Britain to cover up its own failures.
Ultimately it then decided simply to help itself to jabs paid for by Brits.
There are a couple of words for that … “piracy” is one.
But let us be much more blunt.
AstraZeneca is blameless.
It should be feted for saving many lives.
Instead it has actually been vilified and scapegoated by the EU’s inexperienced, jab-nabbing weasels.
That need to embarrass every EU citizen– and all those still unusually persuaded the Brussels club is a force for excellent.
It self-evidently and indisputably is not.
‘ Practical’ Harry
WE fresh Aid For Heroes customer JJ Chalmers.
Not least because he sticks by his mates.
However the Strictly star is naïve about Prince Harry– and his belief that the runaway former Royal will continue to “serve” Britain for ever.
Harry has actually chosen a various course.
He served the UK very well once.
He’s not doing so improving himself with Netflix and romping on Californian beaches.
Nor by smearing our Royal Household and baselessly implicating Britain of being a bigoted, brainwashed country which eliminated his better half.
In truth the damage he and Meghan did to our country’s worldwide reputation because one spiteful and careless TV interview was tremendous.
If Harry genuinely intends to serve Britain, let’s see him do so.
It would take years of dutiful slog to apologize for the Oprah fiasco.
HANG on a minute, PM.
It is potty to say 2 fully vaccinated people can not fulfill inside your home due to the fact that the jabs don’t give “100 percent protection”.
You might argue that for ever.
Consisting of when pubs reopen and we are informed to produce a Government-mandated “passport” proving our vaccinations.
If Boris desires the doubly-jabbed to hold back mixing up until May 17– when most of us will have the ability to under his lockdown “roadmap”– well, OK (however don’t be amazed if some will not wait).
Just don’t tell them it’s too dangerous.
That’s taking them for fools.
