"UK's official contract is actually dated August 28, one day after the EU's contract."

A reminder
"British officials had earlier declined to provide the contract to CNN, making no mention of the redacted version, and have repeatedly refused to give details on the country's vaccine supplies, citing "security reasons."
A reminder
"The redacted contract has, technically, been publicly available since at least Nov 26, according to the date the page was last edited. But the link is difficult to find on the government website without using precise search terms and it appears to have gone largely unnoticed."
There is as always a simple question

What made Astra Zeneca show such preference to the UK government?

And also

Why is a British government so desperate that they do so and to capitalise upon it politically?

"Bernard of Chartres used to compare us to dwarfs perched on the shoulders of giants. He pointed out that we see more and farther than our predecessors, not because we have keener vision or greater height, but because we are lifted up and borne aloft on their gigantic stature."

I am going to write a thread now

Where I agree with the @ScotTories

"The domain name ‘postalvote.scot’ redirecting to the SNP’s own website has been criticised by the Scottish Conservatives as an attempt to “dupe voters”"


First of all

Let's be clear on what the SNP did

They registered a domain


To provide a route into people to register for a postal vote

No data is retained by the SNP

I was looking forward to doing a thread on a once in a generation referendum

And on Dominic Raab vs Sajid Javid vs Jacob Rees Mogg

But no

Steve Baker has to pop up with this utter undiluted bullshit and jump the line or is that queue

Now I agree with the latter half

I disagree with the start

It took the culmination of 40 years of lies, cheating, nativism, racism & xenophobia

To “win”

And having won

The next 40 years

Will be the sad state of those who sold the shitshow desperately not moving on because they *have* to further denigrate the EU
A reminder the Daily Telegraph back on 1st January 2016

On brexit and one of its many failures
