Europe’s most prominent federalist has accused Ursula von der Leyen of overseeing a “diplomatic disaster” that has wrecked relations between the EU and Britain.
Guy Verhofstadt, the senior liberal MEP and former Belgian prime minister, attacked the European Commission president for making the EU’s vaccines “fiasco” worse with panicked measures.
Proposals personally driven by the leader of the European Commission to reintroduce a hard Irish border as part of export restrictions last month have, he said, poisoned relations with Britain and undermined years of work.

Seems to be a topic, still, for Guy Verhofstadt at least.But her e-mails.
She made a mistake. Took it back swiftly. Apologized.
What is there more to do?
'Strangely' only still a topic in the British press.
I totally agree with that, but the UK side still playing the "but her E-mail" card over doesn't really help.Basically, the EU and the UK are stuck with each other, one way or another, and we have to find a way to make the relationship work as things evolve, because we're never going to be rid of each other, no matter how much some people both sides of the channel might wish it were otherwise.
I'm sorry, Sid, but this doesn't look anything like "but her email" if you're British or Irish.I totally agree with that, but the UK side still playing the "but her E-mail" card over doesn't really help.
To find a MEP or two on any subject with the same views as you favor or disagree with is easy for a newspaper or politician.
There are hundreds of them, so all flavors are represented I guess.
Ethnicity and deprivation have for the first time been recognised as risk factors for severe Covid in new modelling, which will lead to nearly 2 million more people in England being advised to shield and 800,000 being fast-tracked for vaccines.
The risk analysis tool, commissioned by the chief medical officer for England, Chris Whitty, from a team at Oxford University, takes into account a multiplicity of health conditions and circumstances that increase people’s likelihood of death, from obesity and severe mental health problems to homelessness.
The announcement prompted renewed calls from campaigners for black, Asian and minority ethnic groups to have higher priority for vaccination.
Covid-19: World's first human trials given green light in UKHealthy, young volunteers will be infected with coronavirus to test vaccines and treatments in the world's first Covid-19 "human challenge" study, which will take place in the UK.
The study, which has received ethics approval, will start in the next few weeks and recruit 90 people aged 18-30.
They will be exposed to the virus in a safe and controlled environment while medics monitor their health.
The UK has given doses of a Covid vaccine to more than 15 million people.
Human challenge studies have played a vital role in pushing the development of treatments for a number of diseases, including malaria, typhoid, cholera and flu.
As of this week I'm eligible, but there's nowhere I can get an appointment. Pharmacies are still only allowed to give it to 65+, which I'm not yet.So, again, people younger than me -locally- can get the vaccine, but spouse and I still can't get it.
