Pleased as punch for you, Glos, and I look forward to many more years of banter. I'll have a vegan roll in celebration.

Same goes for me Glos.

Very Happy

During this depressing posting on here, I've had two rays of sunlight. My heart specialist says he doesn't need to see me any more, (3 years treatment), and my oncologist rang me yesterday and said that my bloods were perfect, and he doesn't want to see me anymore either, after 10 years treatment, (only when i call them). WooHoo  cheers
Great news on your health Glos, that is something to celebrate  Very Happy

Not a closet Socialist, but all the parties, (even Labour,  Shocked), have some policies that seem reasonable, other than the SNP that is, but not to worry, rumour has it that Sturgeon is on the slippery slope out)

The reciprocal arrangement for the EU agreeing to have an open border in Ireland was that goods sent from mainland UK to NI would be checked to ensure they met EU standards - but it's not happening.

During the 2019 general election campaign Boris Johnson said there would be no checks on goods moving in either direction between Great Britain and Northern Ireland as a result of his Brexit deal, even though official documents at the time made clear that there would be.

Now the EU is losing patience with the Government so could this spark off a trade war?
I really hope not as we are so dependent on importing goods from the EU.

I can't remember where we talked about the EU's threats over the supply of AstraZeneca to them when they threatened us with all sorts including  where the EU invoked Article 16 of the Northern Ireland protocol and had to backdown because of the worldwide condemnation of them doing.

Anyway legal judgement in - the EU lost, they were in the wrong.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-57531064

If you take away the spin the EU has tried to put on it they lost on their two key points - delivery of 120m doses by end of this month - rejected, and supply for the jabs from the English factory - not enforced in the ruling.

A bit more on the case here -

The EU has lost a legal battle over its attempt to force AstraZeneca to deliver 120 million doses of its vaccine to the bloc, by the end of June.A court in Belgium ruled that AZ still has to deliver a total of 80 million doses by September, but this is significantly less than the EU was demanding.

What has the court decided?
The court ruled on 18 June that AstraZeneca must deliver a total of 50 million coronavirus vaccine doses to the EU by 27 September, on top of the 30 million it had already delivered, by the end of the first quarter of this year.

According to the ruling, the company has to deliver: •15 million doses by 26 July •20 million doses by 23 August•and 15 million doses by 27 September If it doesn't meet these obligations, AstraZeneca will incur a €10 fine per undelivered dose.

What were the reactions to the ruling?
AstraZeneca welcomed the court's decision and said in a statement it will deliver substantially more than 80 million doses by the end of June 2021: "All other measures sought by the European Commission have been dismissed, and in particular the Court found that the European Commission has no exclusivity or right of priority over all other contracting parties."

The European Commission wanted substantially more than the court ordered - a total of 120 million vaccine delivered by the end of June 2021, and 300 million doses by the end of September.

How did the EU-AstraZeneca dispute start?
The EU has been at odds with AstraZeneca over its contract for 300 million doses of the vaccine, signed in August 2020. The European Commission says only 30 million jabs arrived in the first three months of 2021, out of 90 million which AstraZeneca was supposed to deliver.

In the second quarter of the year, AstraZeneca said it could deliver only 70 million of the promised 180 million doses.

In April, the European Commission sued the company for not respecting its vaccine supply contract and for not having a "reliable" plan to ensure timely deliveries. All 27 EU countries supported the legal action.

What did AstraZeneca say?
AstraZeneca said it had "fully complied" with its agreement with the EU and hoped to resolve the dispute as soon as possible. The company had previously said the contract obliged it to make its "best effort" to meet EU orders.

It blamed production problems at a plant in Belgium - but the EU said its contract identified a number of plants, both in the EU and the UK, where the EU could source supplies.

The company acknowledged its agreement with the EU allowed the option of supplying Europe from UK sites, but only once the UK had sufficient supplies.

The full details of the company's deals with the UK and the EU have not been made public.

Analysis by the Politico website points to a clause in the UK's contract, saying the government "may terminate the deal and invoke what appear to be punishment clauses" if there is a delay in supply.

But the EU contract did not include such harsh potential consequences, Politico says.

That tw@t Tim Martin deserves all the grief he gets but I can't help but feel sorry for the staff he'd lay off at the drop of a hat - if there wasn't a shortage.
Made me cringe a couple of months ago when he called for freer migration from the EU to help staff their pubs.

And his attitude towards staff during the pandemic led to the "Neverspoons" campaign but at those prices folk will always give him money for a pint of Stella at 8 in the morning.
