  1. This is a tabloid, you need to find information from a reliable source. If it is true you'll find it Now there are many problems with the AstraZeneca. Was not tested on 65+ (now it seems to be OK, as the UK citizens were used as Guinea pigs) Ineffective against the South African variant that's why they altogether stopped using it there. So, problems.. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/mar/02/covid-germany-and-france-under-pressure-to-shift-oxford-vaccine Now, I still prefer the the AstraZeneca over the Spoutnik and the Sinovac even if th
  2. The problem (D&D system ) is that the EU is lawful-good while the present UK is chaotic neutral. Unpredictable, unstable, always pursuing short term interests,whatever the consequences. At every stage in the Brexit process, British ministers have promised to work for deep and lasting good relations with the EU after Brexit. Time after time, and again this week over Northern Ireland, those words have proved empty.
  3. The editorial goes on saying it is good he never became national security adviser.. Otherwise he'd already had started a war https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/mar/04/the-guardian-view-on-lord-frost-control-him-or-sack-him
  4. Yeah our friend forgot to mention the lift is temporary. As if Biden does not really trust the UK will be true to its word... Biden is of Irish ascent .. Brexit: EU to launch legal proceedings against UK 'very soon' https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2021/mar/05/brexit-eu-to-launch-legal-proceedings-against-uk-very-soon And once more, everyone had been expecting to resolve this trade disruption in Northern Ireland through a meeting of the EU-U.K. Joint Committee, which very likely would have organised an extension
  5. Another thing to remember is that AstraZeneca vaccine deal with the EU was signed (one day) before the AZ deal with the UK. Now, we got scr*wed up anyway. Not that there are not many other issues..
  6. That's the least we can do Now what is intriguing is that the last meetings went well and there was confidence that agreement on an extension would be found Three quotes : So it looks like Frost is very purposefully making sure everyone around is p*ssed. The commission, Ireland, the European Parliament, the USA... The likely explanation is that Frost is taking things in hand for his own personal advantage So although there will be wide - ranging consequences, we're talking internal cabinet politics in Britain nation
  7. This is not news, once again the UK signature is proven worthless Another deal is threatened: the Ulster paramilitaries are leaving the Good Friday Agreement https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2021/03/04/eu-mulls-retaliation-against-british-exports-city-uk-unilateral/
  8. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2021/mar/04/uks-plan-to-extend-brexit-grace-period-infuriates-irish-and-eu-officials If I get it right, the UK is violating again the withdrawal agreement, but the Brexit trade deal has not been ratified by the EU parliament? Yep So last year we thought there was a deal, but we are in fact heading for a no-deal again Really, it's a pity Frost and Johnson choose to violate the agreement without even trying to use the built-in conciliatory syste
  9. Indeed! Anyway Frosty wasted no time, he's already started to violate the deal Now the UK prepares to violates the deal The question is what will the EU do next.. I hope the EU will delay the equivalence negotiations for financial services which were scheduled in March, For a start https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2021/03/03/analysis-lord-frost-wastes-no-time-ruffling-brussels-feathers Now I'm not sure what else can be done in the short term. Anyone kniws? Indeed!
  10. Well Grove is an idiot, overconfident from his right-wing press connections and the use of certain controlled substances, Frosty is more of a zealot, but lacking in experience in trade negotiations and probably even more stupid. Gove is more polite, Frost is just a disgrace as a diplomat. Knowing the past record of the UK at having its cake and eating it, you could have done soo much better with almost anyone amongst the top civil servants of the FO. Halas, I still wonder how someone as incompetent was elevated.. Yeah sorry. And t
  11. Are you sure of that? I can prove the opposite, but I await your rebuttal Three quotes which are the max here but the source is included https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2021/mar/02/use-tariffs-to-protect-food-safety-and-animal-welfare-in-post-brexit-deals-ministers-told
  12. This is not punishment, why should the European Union financial markets not be located in the EU? When the UK chose to opt out paying for membership, it opted out of the benefits too, can you understand that? And if you ask me it's not very clever having "take no prisoners" Frosty representing your interests. This guy hates us so much he does not even say "European Union" but "your organization". I mean, if you want to have good and polite British-style diplomacy to make the best of a difficult situation, like loosing 1.3 trillion in ass
  13. You always prefer to negotiate with someone competent. Before Brexit, Frost's career was over : he had reached his level of incompetency. He could never have been better than ambassador in Denmark or head of the whisky promotion association. Now he was appointed at the highest possible posts v national security adviser, he was made a lord... Now that does not change the fact his incompetency, his idiotic tweets. Brexiteers complain about the deal, while allegedly sending the worst diplomat to defend their interests. I'm just pointing out that
  14. I'm just pointing out the hypocrisy of your national populist government pretending to negotiate as"sovereign equals" while doing exactly the opposite.
