    Brexit Britain going from strength to strength: “Sad news as Brexit causes Baron Shellfish of Bridlington to close it’s doors after 40 years of exporting lobsters and crabs to the EU”. They were one of the largest UK shellfish exporters. Reported earlier by Sam Baron via his Facebook. A sad read.

      Sadly there will be more of this as the UK economy adjusts to the dramatic rise in trade barriers. And meanwhile UK government and opposition appear likely to talk about future economic growth while ignoring what is happening.

      Fishing fleets, Northern Ireland, the car industry and even the UK music & cultural industry are all beginning to be affected by a substandard deal. Can or will BOJO even try to renegotiate? Is this the true price of Brexit?

      Chickens are coming home to roost.

    Charger’s Vax Facts™ #52 ( Super Sunday Edition )

    The UK recorded its second highest daily total of vaccinations yesterday of 550,468 taking the overall total to 12,525,735.

    Ireland’s official total has remained unchanged since Wednesday at 219,200.

    The initial batch of British/AstraZeneca vaccines arrived in Ireland over the weekend with the first of the 21,600 jabs being given to healthcare workers from Monday.

    At the UK’s current rate of vaccinations it would take the NHS less than half an hour to administer them and under four hours to adminster Ireland’s total to date.

    Ireland’s media seems uninterested in how the UK has achieved such phenomenal success with their vaccine programme but European newspaper are.

    Here’s an exclusive interview “Die Welt” and “La Repubblica” have done with Kate Bingham, the former Chair of the UK Government’s Vaccine Taskforce: what Boris Johnson said when he appointed her, the secrets of UK success, what Britain did and the EU didn’t, the “fake news” of doses from Germany to Britain, the future of Coronavirus vaccines, what she thinks of Sputnik, why it’s correct to delay the second dose, why a global response is the only answer and why manufacturing vaccines is so complicated: “You do not build a racing car from scratch in 6 hours”

      You should run your vax-fax by Sam Baron of Baron Shellfish, Bridlington, Yorkshire who have just announced their Brexit-related closure after 40 years of exporting shellfish to the EU, one of the UK’s largest.

      I wonder what response you’ll get Charage?

  3. Joe F

    Oh thanks a bunch for that information Kate, fair play to you. Any chance on showing how good, or bad, the UK is doing as regards deaths per million? Also, I didn’t hear how England got on yesterday at the rugby, you usually tell us about that too.

    1. Toe Up

      Just ignore him. He’ll soon get tired of shouting into the void when he gets no response from anyone.

    The Examine:

    ”Mass vaccine roll out gathers pace.”

    Read into the article and it turns out ‘gathering pace’ means pushed out to May.

    Bit of the auld fake news from The Examiner maybe? Snappy headline to catch the eye?

  5. ian-oh

    One independent comment at the top, then what appears to be another then the Charger pile on begins.

    FFS if you don’t like the guy don’t engage. It gets to the point when calling out perceived trolling becomes trolling itself.

    Even this comment is related to the whole sorry mess.

    1. Charger Salmons

      This is correct.
      Why a straightforward daily post about the number of vaccines carried out in the UK and Ireland produces so much bile and vituperation is beyond me.
      I wonder if it will be the case when Ireland eventually starts to vaccinate people in significant numbers.

      ” Ignorance is the parent of fear “

      1. Charlie

        “Straightforward” lol
        Serious question. Apart from taking a swipe at the Irish situation every morning, WHY do you feel the urge/need/necessity to inform everyone about vaccine details every morning. Seriously, do you really think we need this every morning when all we get every day is Civid and Vaccine info every hour of the day. What do you hope to achieve?

      2. Joe F

        Just one tiny result of Brexit, Admiral Nelson, it’ll hardly affect the world economy, but my wife has just stopped buying her Jean Paul Gaultier Eau de Toilette classique 100ml from UK suppliers. She has switched to a Spanish retailer and just received her first consignment two weeks ago.
        As I said it’s hardly going to affect the stock markets, but they’re normally about €90 a bottle and she got 5 bottles for around €300, a saving of around €150.

        1. Charlie

          Can you just hold off with the tit for tat thing please for 5 minutes to give him a chance to respond to my genuine question please.

    1. ian-oh

      And hang and cheese. Bit of batch loaf, chunks of mature chedder, some crumbed hang and a bag of taytos will do you the power of good.

        1. goldenbrown

          what you mean you miss it Junk?
          you calling in from some far flung place abroad?
          or did u have to lay off it for dietary etc?
          either way I can’t imagine how hard that must be, on the edge of getting burnt batch heel toasted and swimming in salty butter has to be the finest edible thing ever

          1. Junkface

            Yes, its hard to find something similar in Germany. Although there are lots of great breads, to me Brennans brown batch bread is the greatest when toasted! Especially with a full Irish breakfast.

          2. goldenbrown

            ian-oh
            yep. and for some unknown (but I’ve accepted a longtime passed now) reason I prefer to butter the outer facing bockity side of that heel as opposed to the inner cut side…..for me it turns it into something else entirely. oh and the blacker the crust on the loaf is pre-toasting the better.

            junkface
            sorry to hear about your loss there but I suppose the Germans have the beer at least, I see it’s supposed to be hitting -18 in Munich this weekend?

        Winston Churchill of our times is certainly apt.

        Racist, self-interested old bastard, was Winston and Boris doing his level best to justify the comparison.

        1. Charger Salmons

          Millie – if it wasn’t for Winston you’d be wearing lederhosen hotpants now.
          Actually,come to think of it …

          Wahaay !

          1. Joe F

            And what about those 39 unfortunate Vietnamese Admiral Nelson? Counting the number of replies to your comments is more important than their lives. Your disgusting joke at their expense shows what a lowlife you are Kate.

          2. Charlie

            Tommy. If it wasnt for the Yanks you’d be speaking German.
            I’m assuming my earlier civilised question to you was just too big an ask. You’re a disappointment/failure on every level. Toodle pip.

      2. Joe F

        As I said Kate, as well as being a racist (you said in a post that most crime in the UK were from blacks and immigrants, your precise words by the way) and a narcissist (counting on many occasions how many posts are about you) you are a complete hypocrite.
        Still no response either to your disgusting Vietnamese joke old boy.
        Plus my wife is delighted with Brexit, she just saved €150 on perfume ordered from Spain instead of the UK.
        Marvelous.

      3. Nigel

        Sounds like they’re too afraid to do anything about their elected representative’s incompetence.

    lift the corporate veil before one penny from irish insurance companies goes off shore.

    why should irish pub goes pay these off-shore trusts and LLC’s -insurance will increase-which will get passed on.
