  1. UK is in a pickle. Firstly the level of national inequality in output per head: Secondly inequality in regional wealth generation which is even greater than regional inequality in disposable incomes:
  2. This is going to get ugly. From Politico: As part of the Advanced Purchase Agreement (APA) with the EU, AstraZeneca got a “three-digit million-euro amount,” according to one official. That money, EU money, was meant to pay for production capacity being reserved, and for advance production of the coronavirus vaccine so it could be distributed as soon as approval was granted. The APA was concluded in August; by the end of October, the Commission had collected all orders and passed them on on behalf of member states: We’re talking 300 million vaccine doses overall, with an option for an additional 100 million. What Kyriakides and the EU want to know is quite simple: what the problem is. The options are quite limited in Brussels’ view: Either the advance production hasn’t happened, or vaccines have been produced but sold to someone else that perhaps agreed to pay more. Either way, the company has opted to not honor an agreement made.
  3. Let me spell it out for you.. Procurement means buying. The EU is saving billions and has vastly better legal terms. The procurement scheme has done what it is set up to do. Once the stuff is bought it is over to the people who need the stuff to do the logistics and the suppliers to supply. This is where the problems are. The free market system is breaking down and the States are going to have to requisition vaccine production facilities from companies which failed with covid.
  4. No we are not. This thread would be thousands of pages long if we jumped on every negative. It would have zero pages of we reported every positive because there aren't any. By the way it is hugely amusing to see Brexit advocates expecting the Scots to vote rationally about logistical problems.
  5. Well never expected the three points coming back with us' Kaminski is fabulous. Douglas had a better game and Nyambe a poorer one. Travis looked lost until sparking into life late on. I'd keep Davenport in the team. Elliott is great but needs much better coaching than he is getting. Arma had his shot settings awry today. All credit to Branthwaite in the way he handled himself after that incident. Boro looked like they were too physical for him but he came through well. Really good game from Lenihan. Thought the triple sub by Mowbray was mental but we were much better for the change. All three players were excellent and Dack is simply different class. Can we play Boro every week? We have finally broken the duck of not beating a side above us. Watch go and throw it all away with three sub par performances against clubs we should beat in the next games.
  6. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/jan/22/foreign-nhs-workers-risk-being-denied-covid-vaccine-england?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Other Wholly predictable, Utterly contemptible. Memo to the UK. Foreigners are humans who can infect Brits. That is the sort of messaging Tories understand... Malta is vaccinating everybody including illegal migrants. In fact 3% of our total Covid cases have been in people we rescued from the Med.
  7. It is pretty obvious where we are going. By 2026 Scotland will be independent and Ireland will be one country on the island. I will go further- by 2030, England wont have a seat on the Permanent Council at the UN and will be filing an application to join the EU.
  8. Significant Northern Irish back border poll within five years A majority of voters in Northern Ireland want a border poll to be staged in the next five years, according to a new poll by LucidTalk for The Sunday Times.Some 50.7 per cent said there should be a thetimes.co.uk
  9. I know you didn't vote for it but 37% of the people have got what they wanted. France is doing very well out of Brexit- a huge boon to Paris in particular. Obviously now the EU27 are making the most out of Brexit and thus far it is going very well for them.
  10. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2021/jan/23/brexit-hit-firms-advised-government-officials-set-up-shop-in-eu?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Other Absolutely- we are very busy relocating British businesses and people out of the UK.
  11. Are you on this planet? I have many dear Ukrainian friends and they were ecstatically happy to see/help the Maidan.
  12. A monster subsidy has been paid.
  13. The bus on the left is Darwen Corporation number 17, the Crossley Regent which is pictured earlier in the thread- it was the only one with that arrangement of rear windows in case you think I have amazing eye sight. The reason why nobody could place the location of the photo is it still exists and was probably on its way to a rally somewhere. Two Darwen Corporation buses survive and four Blackburn Corporation buses are in preservation also. If the bus on the left is number 133, that is one of them.
  14. Excuse me but what renders a £2.5m turnover profitable award winning company employing 38 people in Macclesfield worthless? Other than in Johnson's "Fuck business" world? What an utterly condescending post so typical of the vacuous pit that is Brexit.
