The numbers tell the story about vaccine efficacy, with nearly two-thirds of British adults vaccinated the herd immunity effect will come into play soon.

No doubt the lesson learned in Brussels and Berlin will be that “more Europe” is needed, or rather more leadership from Berlin and fewer consensus constraints. Smaller EU countries’ interests will be ignored because of the need to “streamline decision making”.
