Exceptional News.

Hopefully....just a little longer to go now.

On another note, is anyone really annoyed by the leaks and dirty deals between the Govt and Media?

How does the UK know exactly what Boris is going to say tonight, 24 hours before he actually says it....it looks like it's you scratch my back....
That's great news.  The EU will be left with egg on their face after their decision not to give the Oxford jab to the over 65's with Macron saying it was "quasi-ineffective" for that age group.  Think there was a big anti-Brit sentiment with that statement. Time to rectify the error and get it into more people's arms.

I don't see why anyone should have egg on their face for waiting for actual proper research when dealing with vulnerable people.
When there is authoritative research they'll change their recommendation, as John Maynard Keynes said "when I receive new data I change my opinion, what should I do?".

Do you think the "quasi-ineffective" statement was correct when he didn't have the data to back up the statement?

It's not the end but it feels like the beginning of the end. Hopefully infection rates and vaccine numbers continue to go in the right direction.

The French have been vociferous in their criticism of the Oxford jab, the Germans, in the middle of this roll out, have huge supplies of the Oxford Vaccine in storage as they've briefed against it so much large swathes of the German public refuse to accept the Oxford jab, Belgian Nurses have threatened to go on strike if they are given the Oxford vaccine.  The EUís politcal briefings against it will come back to haunt them, they've undermined it from the get go - another casualty of Brexit unfortunately.

Nobody likes the Tans - that's at the root of it.

the Germans giving people the choice of vaccine was unwise in the face of a pandemic.

As for not like the tans, there is some truth in this, but the main reason is AstraZeneca's conduct in doing a deal for vaccines and then suddenly announcing with a week to go that they would only supply one third of the amount, while supplying the UK all along.

The EU is about 5 weeks behind at this stage
But that may not be a disadvantage. It depends on how Covid develops

Sort of true, the UK thinks it's on the final lap waving to the crowd as they the approach the chequered flag - but Covid is still in charge, it could go pear shaped for everybody pretty quickly. Hopefully not though - even if the price of that is seeing Bojo & the UK lording it.

The uk, well England, do seem to be going from 0 to 100 with restrictions in April.

They must be doing something right of their most vocal critic Piers Morgan agrees with the roadmap

I think people generally were happy enough with it. It's realistic considering their position.

The uncertainty is what annoys people the most I think. Plus, Boris needed a victory somewhere. If he pulls this off, I think.....he might just get away with the initial disaster of the handling
