The EU Shows why Brexit was necessary

Stopping shipments of vaccines to NI, launching a smear campaign against Astra Zeneca and now threatening the supply of electricity to the Channel Islands all demonstrate the EU style of diplomacy that others outside of the EU have been experiencing for years.  It is called bullying.

Great news: UK-EU Trade heading in the right direction.

Large economies like the EU Single Market all tend to produce goods and services near the financial centre of the economy or, in the case of very large countries, in two or three economic centres.  Having been produced centrally the goods are then sometimes finished locally or distributed from local …

Are Astra Zeneca Vaccine Reactions a Scapegoat for the EU?

I once spent several months operating the adverse reactions database for a major pharmaceutical company.  Most drugs and vaccines had at least one death associated with their use such as anaphylaxis or skin rashes so terrible that the patient died.  When millions of people are exposed to any novel substance …

The EU shows its true colours.

Only one major Western Country has started a vaccine war, undermined confidence in vaccinations and signed a trade and investment agreement with China.  That country is the European Union. The mainstream media liberally condemns any behaviour by the UK or USA that fails to make it onto the latest moral …

China: Britain and the West are living in the past

Dominic Raab, Joe Biden and the EU are all proposing that we continue and even increase trade with China.  They all talk of constructive engagement giving the West influence over the Chinese. This approach might have appeared reasonable twenty years ago but today it is absurd.  China has the highest …

Meghan and Harry – the Relatives from Hell?

Yesterday the mass media finally proved that it was insane.  Meghan, a woman who, by European standards is white skinned, was held to be black and hence the victim of racism.  Harry, a full grown man, happily derided his own family on prime-time TV.  The interview is strong evidence that …

No Platforming: The BBC is also Guilty

The Culture Secretary, Oliver Dowden, is considering appointing a “Free Speech Champion” and introducing fines for universities that “no-platform” speakers.  This is excellent news.  We can tell it is a move in the right direction because the Guardian ran a comment piece criticising it. No-platforming at universities by students is just the …

EU covers slow vaccine approval with spats against drug companies.

It now seems that the EU’s European Medicines Agency may approve the Astra Zeneca vaccine at the end of January.   They also delayed approval of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine by almost a month compared with other countries.  The slow approval process means that the drug companies invested in countries such as  India and the …

The BBC: the need for change

The BBC has been subject to dramatic changes in its Charter over the past 14 years and this has had a deeply negative effect on the Corporation. The BBC Charters until 2007 placed the BBC under fairly tight government control and used general advisory and national broadcasting councils to monitor fairness and …

The Public Sector is a Disaster

Challenges like COVID test organisations. NHS England shows no sign of appreciating the urgency of the vaccination program.  It is asking potential vaccinators to show evidence of “skills” such as diversity awareness before they are hired. How vets, student doctors and nurses, dentists etc. who could be used in the …

Predictions for 2021

The most obvious prediction is that vaccines will defeat the COVID epidemic and life will begin to return to normal.  Full normality is unlikely until the late summer but a semblance of normality will begin at the end of March provided the government prioritises vaccine administration, recruiting pharmacies who already …

An Amazing Moment in History
