Welby slams EU’s anti-Christian action in implementing Article 16

Jan 30, 2021 by

by Archbishop Cranmer: Yesterday the EU unilaterally implemented Article 16 of the Northern Ireland Protocol in order to prevent Covid vaccines leaving the EU for the UK. They did this because the UK has more vaccines than the EU and has vaccinated more of its population than all EU member states combined, principally because Matt Hancock signed a contract with AstraZeneca three months before the EU did, and some of his best vaccine bets are reaping dividends.

Enough with these Brexit-bashing bishops
