    I don't know where you read (or dreamt) that, but it wasn't in the news. The EU has taken over on this one, as the squealing from countries like Ireland (among others) will testify. One day, you'll...

    Or they didn't speak the relevant languages and weren't bothered as they wouldn't have been able to work in the EU anyway. They would have needed an EU passport, as they wouldn't have been able to...

    I think you'll find the UK (along with many other nations) placed orders for more than we'd need, on the basis that many of them wouldn't actually work. Once we have what we need, any future surplus...

    No, they don't. Germany is breaking EU rules. Can't say I blame them though, letting some Belgians run things isn't working out so well, even with a German in charge.

    They need more than 900m doses, and about 50m are being delayed, presumably because the EU haven't actually approved the AZ vaccine. At the current vaccination rate they won't be needing those 50m...
