This just goes to prove that you cannot let your guard down, not for a moment where this pandemic is concerned.
10 months clear of any locally acquired Covid-19 and just one individual can undo all the good work done by the many. Clearly there was a lapse of attention or judgement and that is all it takes.
It seems that a security guard working in a hotel, has been tested positive for Covid-19, possibly with the UK variant.
One should also keep in mind, Australia has not yet started to roll out the vaccine. March appears to be the soonest estimate for vaccinations to start.
Supplies of the vaccines also look to be in jeopardy, as the EU plans to impose restrictions on exports. Restrictions, on vaccine exports, are being put in place to cover shortfalls brought about by the EUs own bureaucracy and ineptitude.
This is potentially a double whammy for WA residents.
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.
Only an idiot would contemplate putting this country through the chaos and confusion of Brexit again.
The Liberal Democrats will back Britain rejoining the European Union at an “appropriate future date” subject to public approval, the party has resolved.
A motion passed at the Lib Dems’ annual conference, with leadership backing, said the party should support a “longer-term objective” of EU membership in the future.
The EU is already trying to punish us for having the temerity to leave.
Can you imagine the gleeful wringing of hands that would precede any moves to rejoin ?
And, don’t forget the cost. Brexit has already cost billions. What will happen to any and all post Brexit trade agreements ? Especially with any countries that the EU doesn’t have a deal.
I am embarrassed by the way in which the elected representatives from all parties are scrabbling over just to score points.
Once the referendum results were in the act of leaving the EU became a non political issue.
All parties should be working together to ensure that the UK came out of this cleanly.
Instead all the MPs seem to be dancing gleefully, denouncing Theresa Mays efforts, pushing for a general election.
It’s like they are on an express train heading down the mountainside, they are all fighting to be the engine driver but not one of them actually knows how to drive the train.
Brexit was always going to be a complicated and difficult issue.
The EU were always going to make it difficult for us to leave.
They will exact their pound of flesh from the UK, just because we had the temerity to vote leave.
The rest of the world is watching from the side lines. Like neighbours watching a husband and wife brawl in the street.
Now is the time to pull together, stop the infighting, and put on a united front. Show the world what makes Britain Great.
Stop this shit shambles now.
THE plight of villagers in Hambledon will be taken to Brussels following the visit of an influential Member of the European Parliament
What’s has this got to do with Brussels and the EU ?
While it is nice to know that one of our MEPs, Richard Ashworth, is taking an interest I fail to see how the EU can be involved.
This is part of a wider UK issue, much of which has been caused by lack of action by our local and national authorities.
Central government has systematically cut or removed funding for many of the organisations responsible for managing our environment. The net of this is a reduction in manpower leading to works, that have been carried out for hundreds of years, remaining undone.
Add to this the idiotic planning approvals that have seen homes built on flood plains and the huge developments in general that are replacing open ground, which can absorb water, with houses and roads which do not absorb water but cause accelerated run off.
These are local issues which should be dealt with at a local, to the UK, level. This is not a European issue.
Right now, we should be curtailing the sending of UK funds to foreign countries. That money should be spent to resolve local UK issues.
