The EU was late to the vaccine table, late placing orders, late signing contracts.
Three months late !!!
To compensate, the EU Bully Boys, tried to steal the UKs contracted orders. They are insisting that vaccine producer, Oxford-AstraZeneca, fulfill EU order shortfalls by diverting the UKs vaccine supplies.
And, while they are arguing with the vaccine suppliers, they thought it would be prudent to effectively shut down the border between the UK and Ireland. The very sticking point that nearly collapsed the Brexit agreement.
They, the EU, invoked Article 16.
This they did without warning and without informing any of the parties involved i.e. UK, Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland.
Following a flurry of communiques, the EU has made a u-turn, claiming their actions were a mistake, an oversight.
Well that’s just Bollocks !!!
Issuing the paperwork to invoke Article 16 would have required signatures at a very high level.
So, the EU are Bully Boys and Liars.
To me this indicates that the EU, still upset that we had the temerity to leave their club, intend to punish us for Brexit every chance they can.
