Coronavirus vaccines: PM to telephone EU leaders in bid to stop export ban being imposed
22/03/2021 | news | politics | 3,911
EU leaders will hold a virtual summit on Thursday to discuss the fate of vaccines made on the continent.
About 25 years ago I was stood in a queue for a taxi on the island of Rhodes. A German couple walked to the front of the queue. The concept of waiting their turn or ’First come, First served’ was genuinely lost on them. It was only when things between us were going to get ugly that they sulked to the back of the queue.

Be me in that queue Boris!

Just the like the queues for the ski lifts in Europe. Frence and Germans just barge past the 100 English queuing. They slide over over people ski damaging them in the process. Usually by Wednesday of the week the English work out that they have to use their ski poles to physically block Europeans pushing past.

Had the same experience once queued outside Vatican when a bus load of Germans pulled at the front and expected to walk straight in. Those of us at the front squeezed up to stop them and eventually fighting broke out, they didn't seem to think they done anything wrong. Arrogant people glad we're out of this political mess.

I agree that the EU have really messed up on this. But can I just point out one thing:

Number of vaccines exported from the EU to UK: 10 million
Number of Vaccines exported by the UK to anywhere in the world: 0

The EU should never have agreed to export in the first place, but as they have they should follow through. But it is dodgy that we are hoarding our own supply

The loosely-worded contract that the EU has with Astra-Zeneca is central to this unfortunate situation.

Yet the attitude from the EU is essentially "we are the EU, therefore you will comply with what we want, regardless of what is written in the contract".

Neither the U.K nor the EU have exported any vaccines. The U.K has received what it ordered from private companies.
