Germans Lose Faith In EU Due To Brussels’ Botched Covid Vaccine Rollout- Reveals A New Poll.
GERMANS are quickly losing faith in the EU thanks to the Brussels’ botched vaccine rollout, a new poll has revealed. Two-thirds say their opinion of the bloc has been damaged by its snail-paced vaccination scheme, which is lagging far behind the UK’s.
Half those surveyed lay the blame for the mess squarely at Ursula von der Leyen’s feet, despite her ‘public’ attempts to shift responsibility onto the drug companies.
And a measly 6% say their view of the EU has been improved by her taking control of buying vaccines from individual states. The results, in a survey sponsored by German newspaper Der Spiegel, suggest the vaccines fiasco and Brexit Britain’s success threaten the bloc’s future. They are particularly dire for the German boss of the EU Commission, who has been badly damaged in her own homeland.
Britain has already vaccinated more people than the whole 27-nation bloc put together, even though our population is seven times smaller. The UK has administered at least one dose to 13 million people, whereas on the continent only 12.5 million have been reached.
Meanwhile, Brussels, not content with threats to Northern Ireland and the UK by attempting to invoke article 16, has now also angered Canada with its vaccine export ban, which has led to a cut in shipments across the Atlantic.
