No. AZN don't sell product. They sell technology and licenses. It's not like Pfizer where you order 5m doeses, they are manufactured and sent to you and you pay for it.

The EU is responsible for the actual manufacturing. AZN licenses it to them, and provides "tech support" and helps them set up and so on - this is what the "best effort" is about.

AZN cannot contract to give UK manufactured stocks to the EU, or anyone else's to anyone else, because they aren't theirs. So when the EU catches up, their product will be theirs.

No. There are *no* orders.

What AZN does is more like licensing. Other countries license vaccine production, fund it and staff it and provide factories and so on. They then distribute it as they see fit.

This is Brazil's contract (the only public one I know of). Pay attention to pages 6 and 7. https://agencia.fiocruz.br/sites/agencia.fiocruz....

AZN provides technical information, support, help with problems and so on.

I think there are seven licensees (not sure) which include the UK, the USA, the EU, Brazil, Australia and India.

The teaching unions are comically bad though (apart from Voice perhaps). They don't address the things teachers actually do object to (behaviour, paperwork).

Nope, it isn't that. It's if you have a child that you think neither of you will be able to look after its an exceptional circumstance.

I think it's because he's a barrier. The target isn't Cummings so much as Johnson or Brexit. The clock is ticking towards July 1st.

Even if everything written about him is true, and much of it isn't and is speculative but written as such "Cummings 'returned to Durham to visit parents'" it's an astonishing response.

How is it so much worse than what Stephen Kinnock did ? (I have no problems with what he did), and why did Tariq Ali (sic ?) funeral which is *way* worse not attract this amount of vitriol ?

I doubt it. But even if they are, having your union advocate a "sit on your backside as much as possible" policy doesn't really help.

So would seeing all those teachers who think they are so undervalued and would get another job easily try to do it.

I qualified 35 years ago, and all teachers say that. To be fair, some do actually work hard. Most are average, many coast, some do virtually nothing and the system does not discriminate.

The odd thing about 1918 is that it targeted the young. Most of these 'pandemics' kill of people who were weak or ill anyway, like the annual flu we seem to get. "Spanish Flu" targeted the young people.
