Blunder: European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen

Blunder: European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen

Colum Eastwood MP, commenting on the ill-judged decision by the European Commission to trigger Article 16,  aptly  described it as “disproportionate” and “a grave error of judgment”.

Former Secretary of State Julian Smith MP bluntly declared that it was “a cock- up”. Both politicians realised the dangers inherent in this woeful blunder.

The responsibility for this huge political shambles lies with Ursula von der Leyen and the European Commission, whose own collective incompetence in not properly managing the supply and distribution of the Astra Zeneca, anti-Covid vaccine, sparked this highly damaging political U-turn.
