Boris Johnson reserves right to carry on without learning anything

PM resorts to churlish and defensive safe place while Starmer plays it cool

Boris Johnson displays a childish refusal to even engage with the questions, let alone answer them. 

If not now, then when? With the UK having passed the unwanted “world-beating” milestone of 100,000 coronavirus deaths the previous day, it was inevitable that prime minister’s questions would be dominated by Keir Starmer asking what lessons Boris Johnson had learned about his government’s handling of the crisis.

We're not even on the radar until April-June.....maybe.

When I see how things are organized here I get so angry! Red tape, unnecessary double checks, multiple ways to divide the available vaccines - as if they are competing for the worst way to do it. That's what you get when people are an afterthought.

Comment was by Mrs.B on January 28, 2021 at 2:04am

Personally, I think this whole roll out is very poorly organized. They are so anxious to get vaccines into arms, that things are getting royally screwed up.....second doses not on time, running out, haphazard deliveries, bits here, bits there.

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on January 28, 2021 at 2:00am

After checking with my GP I was told I would probably be told about my jab at the end of this week. I hope I do. There are rumours abound that many of the Pfizer vaccines are being wasted because after a day of injections some vaccines are leftover and because they can't store them overnight they rush around trying to offer them to any surgery that can take them, sadly this often fails and they are wasted.

This is one thing that needs to go smoothly, & we have delays on getting ours too.

And it will probably mean that the vaccination plans are slowed down by months...

Britain and EU clash over claims to UK-produced Covid vaccine

EU health commissioner dismisses AstraZeneca argument it is contractually obliged to supply UK first

Britain is on a collision course with the European Union over vaccine shortages after Brussels refused to accept that people in the UK have first claim on Oxford/AstraZeneca doses produced in local plants.

The EU’s health commissioner outright dismissed on Wednesday an argument made by Pascal Soriot, the Anglo-Swedish company’s chief executive, that he was contractually obliged to supply the UK first.

In a withering statement, Stella Kyriakides said the UK should not earn any advantage from signing a contract with AstraZeneca three months before the EU’s executive branch put pen to paper.  “We reject the logic of first come, first served,” the commissioner said. “That may work in a butcher’s shop but not in contracts and not in our advanced purchase agreements.”
