According to the Herald:
BORIS Johnson launched a stinging attack on Nicola Sturgeon’s Government, saying if it was up to the SNP there would not have been a single Covid-19 vaccine in Scotland. The Prime Minister is believed to have told a private virtual meeting of the 1922 Tory backbench committee that the mass roll-out of the vaccine programme was a “UK effort “ and down to the strength of the Union. It is thought his criticism of the SNP is a reference to what might have happened if Scotland were independent.
So by ‘UK effort‘, does he mean the British-Swedish multinational AstraZeneca, led in Cambridge by French chief executive Pascal Soriot and reliant on European plants for manufacture?
Does he mean the American multinational Pfizer‘s vaccine developed in Germany by two Turkish-Germans and manufactured in Belgium?
What does he think of Israel vaccinating 11.3 times more of its population (15.83%) than England (1.4%) despite no local manufacture? They simply flew it in from the Pfizer hub in Belgium.
Could an independent Scotland have done the same? It’s a shorter flight.
What a great pillock he is.
If he and the 1922 group had heard of the Israeli success what do you bet they’d have an anti-Semitic explantion?
UPDATE: Does he mean the AstraZeneca vaccine seeking a boost from the Russian Sputnik vaccine?
