It's not Israel that is the problem - they are not a permanent member of the UNSC. A resolution would be needed, and it is unlikely the US would vote yes. Even if there is a majority of votes on the UNSC, a 'no' from any permanent member tanks the resolution. This is a fundamental problem with the ...Jump to post
I see the UK government have again done something early to try and deflect from the problems they find themselves in.
I seem to remember they did this before - brought forward some lockdown lifting to try and take the spotlight in a different direction
I had both Pfizer jabs (11 weeks apart as UK has different gaps between). 1st jab I had raised lump on arm, very sore arm but nothing else. 2nd Jab the same with the arm but the following day I could not get warm no matter what I tried.

I am no contract expert so do not understand all the legal clauses etc. from the different UK & EU contracts that have been posted.

There are several calls for people to get over it, move on etc. I will move on and accept that Brexit was a good idea when ALL the benefits promised at the 2016 referendum are realised - until then surely it has been a failure?

It sounds like you have bought an Air France ticket and if that's the case, it is Air France's responsibility to put you on a new flight and if that is not possible to offer you reimbursement. If your ticket number starts with the 057 prefix you should be safe. Yes, though it may be a different air...Jump to post
