    So to summarise the UK's successful strategy has more to do with luck than a "nimble" bureacracy.
    Maybe the UK got lucky, but the EU ****ed up, in part due to bureaucracy - the simple fact they sat on contracts for 3 months overrides opinion piece spin.

    Are you based in the UK? I'm struggling to reconcile why you're so adamant to paint the UK in a bad light on this particular topic.

      She's still going on about it - Ursula von der Leyen accuses UK of compromising on vaccine safety | World news | The Guardian

      The vaccination programme in the UK has enjoyed a head start through compromising on “safety and efficacy” safeguards, the European commission president, Ursula von der Leyen, has claimed.

      The former German defence minister, who took command of the EU’s executive branch in 2019, said she had a responsibility to take time to ensure the success of the bloc’s mass vaccination programme.

      In the face of heavy criticism, including from her predecessor, Jean-Claude Juncker, Von der Leyen said she was committed to her role and should be judged at the end of her term in 2024.

      “Some countries started to vaccinate a little before Europe, it is true,” she said, asked about the UK. “But they resorted to emergency, 24-hour marketing authorisation procedures.


      “The commission and the member states agreed not to compromise with the safety and efficacy requirements linked to the authorisation of a vaccine. Time had to be taken to analyse the data, which, even minimised, takes three to four weeks.

      “So, yes, Europe left it later, but it was the right decision. I remind you that a vaccine is the injection of an active biological substance into a healthy body. We are talking about mass vaccination here, it is a gigantic responsibility.”
