Some U.S. tech companies expressed disappointment with a ruling by a federal judge that blocked new applications to a program that protects immigrants who were brought to the United States as children from deportation.
Boris and his Government have made many mistakes leading to substantial failures during this COVID-19 pandemic, but the vaccine situation would appear to be the one and only success.
However, this does not discount the many failures.
Here it is the EU who have failed, but their over bureaucratic nature means they are unwilling to accept their failure and thereby are causing alarm and concern to an independent country (UK) to overcome this failure.
This can’t be allowed to happen and therefore the EU will have to backdown, something which is not akin to them.
If we were still in the EU none of us would have had any COVID-19 vaccinations, let alone being an European leader.
Unfortunately, the EU will not countenance any UK successes, the EU is showing isolationism and putting the EU first above all others, now where have I heard and seen something similar, well would you believe it, 4 years of President Trump in the US.
This is the US today under Trump, where racists feel they hold the upper hand.
A president should be there for all the people not just his own supporters, but then that is Trump.

LONDON — The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed a structural vulnerability to biological attacks in the U.S. and Europe that requires urgent government action, multiple current and former national security and public health officials told NBC News.
Former officials in the U.S. and the U.K. warn that the devastating impact of the coronavirus on health care infrastructures and economies may act as a “neon light” for terrorist groups looking to unleash pathogens on Western nations.
The pandemic has shown that the West has trouble testing, tracking and treating a pandemic or sustaining a supply of protective equipment for health care workers. It has also raised questions about the security of pathogen research labs worldwide.
“Many of the very worst-case characteristics of an intentional event are also being seen in this naturally occurring pandemic,” said Dr. Robert Kadlec, the assistant secretary for preparedness and response at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Kadlec, a retired Air Force colonel and surgeon who has spent much of the past two decades focused on biodefense policy and legislation inside the White House, the Defense Department and the Senate, helped the FBI with its investigation into the 2001 “Amerithrax” attacks. The perpetrator in the attacks, which killed five people and infected 17 others, used anthrax from a government lab. “We’ve come a long way in 20 years, and yet there is so much more that needs to be done,” he said.

Hillary Clinton got the most individual votes from US citizens in 2016, but Donald Trump won the most electoral votes.
The House on Wednesday approved a resolution formally rebuking President Trump over his decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria.
The measure passed in a 354-60 vote, with four lawmakers voting present. All 60 votes against the resolution came from Republicans, with the present votes coming from three GOP lawmakers and Rep. Justin Amash (I-Mich.). The top three House Republicans supported the motion in a rare split from the president.
The resolution — which was sponsored by House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) and the panel’s top Republican, Rep. Michael McCaul (Texas) — “opposes the decision to end certain United States efforts to prevent Turkish military operations against Syrian Kurdish forces in Northeast Syria.”
The measure also calls on Turkey to end its military action, calls on the United States to protect the Kurds and calls on the White House “to present a clear and specific plan for the enduring defeat of ISIS.”
“The measure we’re considering today will send an unambiguous bipartisan, hopefully bicameral rejection of Trump’s policy in Syria,” Engel said ahead of the vote.
Trump has ordered all U.S. troops in northern Syria to pull back, paving the way for Turkey to launch an offensive against Kurdish forces that were instrumental in the U.S.-led fight against the ISIS.
The decision was swiftly condemned by lawmakers in both parties as abandoning the Kurds, signaling to future partners the United States is untrustworthy and enabling ISIS to resurge in the chaos.
The House’s resolution came to the floor under suspension of the rules, meaning it needed two-thirds approval to pass. The measure garnered support from all Democrats and 129 Republicans.
While the resolution breaks with Trump’s decision, Trump is named just once in the measure when it notes he spoke with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Oct. 6.
President Donald Trump demanded U.S. companies stop doing business with China and questioned whether the Federal Reserve chairman was a bigger enemy of the U.S. than Beijing’s leader Friday, capping one of the most extraordinary days in the long-running U.S.-China trade war.
The president’s Twitter tirades, in response to China’s move to impose retaliatory tariffs on $75 billion in American goods, sent the Dow Jones Industrial Average tumbling 600 points, or nearly 2.4 percent, by the end of trading and provoked an immediate negative reaction from the business community.
The extraordinary events began unfolding when China announced it would levy new tariffs on $75 billion in goods, including reinstated levies on auto products.
