Brexit news latest – EU at WAR over vaccine crisis as Europe’s papers brand UK supply threat ‘best advert for Brexit’
EUROPEAN newspapers have blasted the EU over threats to disrupt Britain’s vaccine supply amid its own jab crisis.
The EU has been incredibly slow in placing orders for vaccines leading many nations to fear their jab rollouts wont be able to go ahead as planned due to massive shortage in supplies.
After being told they were only going to receive a fraction of the UK-made AstraZeneca jab they’d ordered, the EU made an astonishing threat to stop 3.5million doses of the Pfizer jab from reaching the UK.
The EU only abandoned the plan on Friday night after Boris Johnson gave a grave warning that blocking jabs would kill British grandparents.
The EU’s reckless threats and vaccine handling is going down terribly in Europe, where Germany’s Die Zeit said the EU had made “the best advertisement for Brexit”: by acting so slowly and bureaucratically.
Meanwhile Spain’s El Pais blasted the EU over the problematic “late signing of contracts”, while France’s Le Monde branded the EU “ill-equipped for health emergencies of this magnitude”, while adding that was no excuse.
