    I am subscribed to an eclectic selection of PR suppliers.

    In complement to the woke efforts note above here, I think it is going to be a looooong year….



    Yesterday I was at an industry expo event that had seminars dominated by eco panels all run by academics.

    A greater collection of obnoxious, unrealistic no nothings it could be hard to imagine.

    Whose witterings were lapped up by the credulous no nothing juniors the brands sent to absorb this tripe, who will filter back to idiot management.

      What happens to all the old wind turbines?

        Old wind turbines do not die, they are simply buried in obscure places like all other inconvenient BBC specialist truths that must be logged but hidden well.

      Guest, is that a sort of Molesworth ‘no nothings’ ? Did a lot of them start their replies in Q&As with the word “So … ” ?


      • Guest Who says:

        As ‘No People’. And, as added in complement above, oxygen larceny specialists of the highest order.

        The event was ‘free’, but NEC parking now is £16.95, with getting there, time costs, hotel etc adding a lot.

        Utter waste of everything.

        The seminars were not even thinly disguised pitches by businesses that had to buy a stand to get a speaker slot, or said academics from loser Unis invited along by design companies who needed a Prof. or Dr. to make idiotic comments on what the public wants to justify their fees.

        It was like a BBC self-promo PR exercise, only with live, named, people and fewer laughs. Possibly more monkey pox at the free bar.


    • digg says:

      Special interest groups, etc. etc have managed to blackmail Companies into having these new “people” policies.

      Companies are now beginning to feel black-legs if they don’t join the parade and hence will fill these made-up roles with anyone regardless of sense or ability just to demonstrate they are with the wave and avoid backlash.

      Consequently the bar is very low intellectually for the applicants to these positions and they are thus filled by numbskull mantra chanters with absolutely no business experience.

      A really good and sustained slump however will kill them off like the weeds they actually are as Companies are forced to attend to profits for survival over pointless PR.

        Just so Digg, my embattled other has seen 30 plus years at the NHS coal face riddled with non-jobs and routine unaccountability, culminating in the latest appointment; a diversity inclusion graduate, promoted entirely on the premise of ticking many boxes and presumably avoiding a huge tribunal!
        The fact that said individual is considered largely ineffectual, morbidly obese, swings from a different branch and therefore completely untouchable, is completely but notably irrelevant of course . . .

      We … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/We_(novel)

      We (Russian: Мы, romanized: My) is a dystopian novel by Russian writer Yevgeny Zamyatin, written 1920–1921.[2] It was first published as an English translation by Gregory Zilboorg in 1924 by E. P. Dutton in New York, with the original Russian text first published in 1952. The novel describes a world of harmony and conformity within a united totalitarian state. It influenced the emergence of dystopia as a literary genre. George Orwell claimed that Aldous Huxley’s 1931 Brave New World must be partly derived from We,[3] but Huxley denied this.

      • Guest Who says:

        The word ‘we’ was bandied about waaaaay too much at this industry event as well.

        I recall one many years ago when an idiot WI spinster on the panel held aloft a hand of bananas in a sealed plastic bag and said… ‘We want these banned’.

        Not a peep from an audience of packing pros.

        I know a bit about this so I stood up and asked her why.

        She was stunned and blustered ‘because it is plastic!’,

        I replied, ‘I can see that. But I also know no one here does anything without reason, especially at added cost, so why. Can you tell me?’.

        She could not. But the audience could, and did.

        I enjoyed that bit.


    • digg says:

      Agreed, the BBC has still to realise that there is no longer a “we” as far as average Joe is concerned. In BBC land “we” means us lot in the newsroom and our mates who all share the same tunnel brain.

      In fact the BBC is now little more than a leftist training course.

  3. MarkyMark says:

    Nadine to get sacked and join the BBC then ofcom …

    The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has confirmed it’s launching a “Mid-Term Review” of the BBC to assess whether the broadcaster needs reforming to “achieve greater impartiality” and hire more people from working class backgrounds. The review will take place at some point before 2024, and will analyse “the effectiveness of the BBC’s governance mechanisms… in ensuring compliance with its editorial standards including impartiality requirements”. Given how often their highest-paid stars flout those requirements, there’s plenty of work to be done…

    Announcing the move this morning, Nadine Dorries says:

    The BBC is a world-class broadcaster but one which has to adapt to a rapidly changing landscape just like all broadcasters are. The Government is committed to ensuring the BBC is more impartial, more accessible and more reflective of our country’s variety of viewpoints. This review will build on our recent progress to make the BBC more accountable to those who fund it, level up people’s access to the job opportunities it offers and ensure it continues to work in the best interest of the public.

    There is also a review of the licence fee coming down the track “soon”…


    Can they talk about the BBC and how it is eroding freedom to see the world as it is …

    Remember when the BBC report on events you might have to look a bit deeper ….

    BBC WEB-SITE Watch #1 – this caught my eye early in the morning

    BBC Favourite Foodie (they have several spares if you are unable to afford one) Jack Monroe is having a whinge. Now there’s a thing. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-61582353 Jack finds a shop with a weekly budget of £20 exhausting. I guess it is if you shop every day, waiting for the right bargain on the ‘still fresh’ discounted shelf.

    I admire Jack for going through very difficult personal times, although she seemed to be the architect of them at times. Aren’t we all? There’s a Wiki page for her but usual disclaimers, it may not be accurate, may have omissions, and so on. But then she seems to have made a serious attempt at pulling herself out of the mire and has succeeded which is great in my view. Wish more people in the UK were like Jack in making that effort.

    However, something struck me about the video which didn’t seem right. Could just be me. See what you think.


  5. MarkyMark says:

    The claims echoed the findings of 2014’s Jay Report, which detailed how at least 1,400 children were raped, trafficked and abused in the town between 1997 and 2013.

    But Rotherham’s Safeguarding Children Partnership, which published its review last week, found the police and council’s actions and responses to the group’s new concerns were “effective and robust”.


    In 2018, investigations by the Sunday Mirror alleged that the extent of the Telford grooming gang was far more vast than had previously been believed, with claims of up to 1,000 girls, most of them white, having been victims of trafficking, drugging, beating, rape and even murder.

    As expected, Rishi has fired up the money printer once again to combat inflation. The Treasury claims it’ll cost £15 billion, with £5 billion a year supposedly coming from the newly-announced windfall tax “energy profits levy“.
    In May last year NHS Test and Trace (NHST&T) was set up with a budget of £22 billion. Since then it has been allocated £15 billion more: totalling £37 billion over two years.

    Hundreds of millions of pounds may have been wasted on a drug for flu that works no better than paracetamol, a landmark analysis has said.

    The UK has spent £473m on Tamiflu, which is stockpiled by governments globally to prepare for flu pandemics.

      Kneel to end racism as footballers stand in Qatar to accept racism at a small price to keep their high paid jobs.


      Persecution of people with albinism (sometimes abbreviated PWA[1]) is based on the belief that certain body parts of albinistic people can transmit magical powers. Such superstition is present especially in some parts of the African Great Lakes region, it has been promulgated and exploited by witch doctors and others who use such body parts as ingredients in rituals, concoctions and potions with the claim that their magic will bring prosperity to the user (muti or medicine murder).[2]


    • MarkyMark says:

      Contaminated water can transmit diseases such diarrhoea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio. Contaminated drinking-water is estimated to cause 502 000 diarrhoeal deaths each year.


      In low- and middle-income countries, 38% of health care facilities lack improved water source, 19% do not have improved sanitation and 35% lack water and soap for handwashing.

      When water comes from improved and more accessible sources, people spend less time and effort in physically collecting it, meaning they can be productive in other ways. It can also result in greater personal safety by reducing the need to make long or risky journeys to collect water. Better water sources also mean less expenditure on health, as people are less likely to fall ill and incur medical costs, and are better able to remain economically productive.

      With children particularly at risk from water-related diseases, access to improved sources of water can result in better health and therefore better school attendance, with longer-term consequences for their lives.


    • MarkyMark says:

      The actual number of people dying because of it are therefore lower than the estimates. That said, the most recent data we have shows that between about 490,000 to 760,000 Africans died due to inhaling cooking smoke in 2015.23 Nov 2016

    So the Chancellor floods more money into the economy. It’s all going to end in tears, it’s pure Socialism. Why should Rishi care anyway? He’s Indian, genetically and culturally with a wealthyIndian wife who quite properly kept her earnings offshore.
    Taxing the energy companies for what will be defined as “exess profits” is pretty stupid too. You couldn’t find a better way for companies to offshore profits and reorganise their business somewhere else.
    Where’s the sense in taxing people right left and centre and giving it all away to people who fit the Government’s idea of being needy? It would be more cost effective and efficient to reduce taxes and make everything we pay for cheaper as well as giving incentive for people to work and for businesses to become more profitable.
    Speaking as someone who lives hand to mouth who doesn’t fit the “needy” box the Government defined as being deserving of help, I really resent what is happening.

        Probably have a similar result – bricked up front doors, and everyone coming and going by the back door, or a window, or a hole in the wall…

        Bottom line, you don’t seem to be able to create a tax someone can’t find a way around, in the current situation it’s looking a bit like the ‘way around’ is just to stop working and start claiming.

    • digg says:

      Agreed. reducing income tax by a reversed percentage according to income would spread the payback to those who are actually working producing the goods that the population needs whilst helping the people in low pay and maybe encourage more stay at homes to seek employment.

      Handouts given only to the unemployed simply makes it a more attractive proposition than getting up in the morning to go to work at all.

        At least the bias is clear ….


    • Deborah says:

      According to the DM the apology was given on Twitter and I think Instagram. I wonder what proportion of the Today audience bother with either. I heard the claim this morning by Nick Robinson that virtually the PM had blood on his hands. At the time I thought it virtually impossible to prove that anyone caught the virus in a specific place ie only if they had not seen a single other soul, not been in a shop etc. I have to admit this was the moment I switched off in spite of not having arrived at my destination.

      As for Robinson’s mistake. He should resign or at least be made to make the apology every 15 minutes tomorrow.

    I want to know who vomited, I want to know who insulted a cleaner, I want to know who brought in a karaoke machine, I want to know who wheeled in a caseful of booze, because they should be named and shamed and be given a caustic reference if they asked for one.

    I’m turning into an almost troll level of cut and paste from the DT – this one is about changes to broadcasting

    BBC Four and CBBC will end as traditional TV channels as part of the broadcaster’s plans to become “digital-first”.

    Director-general Tim Davie also told staff on Thursday that 1,000 jobs will be cut across the public-funded part of the corporation.

    The corporation did not confirm whether BBC Four, as well as CBBC and Radio 4 Extra, would eventually move online to the iPlayer service.

    BBC World News and BBC News Channel will also merge to create a single 24-hour TV news channel serving both UK and international audiences.

    Mr Davie told staff: “This is our moment to build a digital-first BBC. Something genuinely new, a Reithian organisation for the digital age, a positive force for the UK and the world.

    “Independent, impartial, constantly innovating and serving all. A fresh, new, global digital media organisation which has never been seen before.

    “Driven by the desire to make life and society better for our licence fee payers and customers in every corner of the UK and beyond. They want us to keep the BBC relevant and fight for something that in 2022 is more important than ever.

    “To do that we need to evolve faster and embrace the huge shifts in the market around us.”

    The news comes off the back of the BBC needing to save a further £285 million in response to the Culture Secretary’s announcement in January that the licence fee will be frozen at £159 for the next two years.

    Mr Davie, who took over from Lord Tony Hall as BBC director-general in September 2020, has overseen a slimming down of the corporation since starting in the role, with the BBC losing some 1,200 staff in the last 18 months.

    The corporation also faces uncertainty over the future of the licence fee after Nadine Dorries announced a consultation about the future funding of the broadcaster will begin shortly.

    The minister has said she wants to find a new funding model before the current deal expires in 2027 as it is “completely outdated”.ENDS

          He’s an ex-conservative government minister, Stew. You personally might not consider that to be “right-wing”, but seeing as you recently claimed it was ridiculous to claim that James Goddard was a white-suprematist after joining “Patriotic Alternative” (neo-facists), that’s a bit of a low bar.


          • StewGreen says:

            @Maxi that is really nasty thing to say
            It’s exactly the same pattern as saying people have negative attributes merely cos of their skin colour.

            I don’t have much idea of Patriotic Alternative but they are certainly not generally people who are building gas chambers and are intent on killing ethnic sections of the UK population. So it is wrong to use poison labels like Nazi/fascist etc.

            If people in a black neighborhood in the US get together to resist gentrification of their neighbourhood I see nothing wrong with that.
            PA’s concerns about the UK seem very similar to that.

    they can ask that instead of speaking directly, an advocate speaks for them

      BBC Radio 5 Live Breakfast
      BBC Radio 5 Live, Wednesday 3 January 2018

      During a phone-in on the programme a contributor, Danielle Tiplady was introduced as a staff nurse. We should have established and made clear on air that she was a political activist.




  34. StewGreen says:

    By Thursday lunchtime Claudia Webbe MP had lost her appeal
    .. was that on the news ?


    • Fedup2 says:

      If she was white I wonder if she’d get a mention ? If it was a male found guilty of such a crime I wonder if Hattie Harmon and the sistas would be campaigning to get him out of the commons – or a conservative ….

      The dodgy speaker silent about this …. But then – he’s Labour too …


  35. JohnC says:

    It’s there in regions and nowhere to be seen on the front page.


    A very, very nasty piece of work and a shameless liar.

    The appeal hearing heard Ms Merritt had reported being “threatened by a public figure with acid”, but received 17 further phone calls lasting 14 seconds or less from Webbe after the MP was warned by police to stop contacting her.

    And was a Labour MP. Replaced the also-disgraced Keith Vaz. A relevant point the BBC don’t mention.

    Oh how the Left and all this enrichment is making our country a better place.

    Just imagine the BBC coverage if this was a male, Tory MP.


  36. Zephir says:

    Why not jail ? it would be if it was a white male offender, why was her sentence reduced ? :

    “The decision to overturn the custodial element of Claudia Webbe’s sentence is significant as it means voters won’t get a chance – for now – to say if she should be sacked as an MP, in what’s called a recall petition.

    We will now have to see if Parliament’s Standards Committee decides to act on the conviction.

    If she were to be suspended from Parliament for at least 10 days, that then is another route for a recall petition which would put Webbe’s future in the hands of the voters of Leicester East. “

    Today Watch

    Yesterday the lead BBC type – Comrade Robinson – wrongly described a cleaner as working in number 10 at the time of the gatherings / parties – and said he died of covid ( he didn’t ) – see stewgreen at 0032 above ..

    – and did the usual thing with any Tory – of demanding an apology – I was waiting for Robinson himself to apologise for false news …. But although he has gone onto twitter in his personal capacity there is no mention in the programme itself .

    This is the type of technique used by the BBC to push their anti conservative agenda – it is commonly manifested in the ‘nurse ‘ who comes on to blub about how terrible thing s are the ‘intro’ avoids the fact she is a Far Labour activist ….

    You can trust the BBC…..

    Meanwhile – I’ve been trying to think through what the effect of the money forest which is to be thrown at people in coming months -will people use the money for things other than those intended ?
    Will the BBC roll out some welfare junkie who blames the government for giving them a lot of money which landed up being spent to booze / drugs / gambling ?

    I can hear it now ….

    …we can worry about the effect of this money on inflation – and what happens when energy and other costs keep high or even higher …

    The BBC got one of their ‘misinformation officers ‘ on to talk about the nature of the Texas school killer – he apparently wore a dress and make up from time to time – or maybe didn’t –

    Let’s not mention the dead kids or teachers or shot cops – just concentrate on whether the murderer was or was not a pervert trannie …

    Funny that the ‘misinformation officer ‘ didn’t mention the misinformation one of their own put out yesterday about a domestic issue – rather than one in another continent 8000 miles away ….

    This marks a new low for the BBC – which seems that correcting its ‘own record doesn’t apply to it . You can trust the BBC – OFCOM won’t go near either ….

    Radio 4, 26 May 2022

    We said a government cleaner who worked in Downing Street and had been surrounded by people breaking the rules had contracted Covid and died.

    In fact, he worked at the Ministry of Justice.

    His family was reported to have been told by medical staff that he had died from coronavirus but the post-mortem recorded hypertensive heart disease as the official cause of death.

    We are sorry for the mistake.

      The half apology came as 0746 …. Robinson couldn’t bring himself to clearly apologise – not that it is worth much from a BBC comrade …


      • StewGreen says:

        @Fed R4today selected 7:44am for the correction as that was the same time yesterday Robinson had pushed fakeNews

        “Now let’s look at the morning papers ..oh just before we do thatt though, yesterday at around this time you may have heard me raise a case reported in The Critic magazine, of one government cleaner who contracted Covid and died
        later when I was interviewing the PM’s chief of staff, I went onto describe this man as an individual who’d been instructed to work in Downing St, who was surrounded by people BREAKING the rules.
        MY MISTAKE ! and I apologise for it
        Emmanuel Gomes in fact worked in the Ministry of Justice.
        There is though, I think less importantly a debate about the cause of Mr Gomes’ death, in April 2020, before Covid testing was routine.
        His family were reportedly told he died of Covid … the post mortem recorded a different cause of death .. Let’s look at those front pages”

        That’s theatre …where he starts by pretending THE MOST IMPORTANT part of his job today the correction is so minor he’s forgotten about it.

        BTW A lot of lefty tweeters actually used the name Immanuel Gomez or the name of Gambian footballer Emmanuel Gómez
        The cleaners name is Emanuel Gomes

        Was there also an apology at the same time of day the PM’s chief of staff interview was ?


        • Fedup2 says:

          Stew – can we agree on 0745 or it’s war … I think the interview yesterday was the ‘trophy’ one so would have been peak time of about 0815.. I’ve got to stop you there- now the weather …


      • StewGreen says:

        I checked R4Today Thursday’s Iplayer version
        It now begins “This programme has been edited since broadcast”
        .. is that OK ??

        BTW Here’s The Deputy Political Editor of The Independent.
        describing the 8:15am Thursday interview with Steve Barclay where Robinson pushed big fake news he’d made up
        “MASTERCLASS @r4Today interview of the PM’s chief of staff by @bbcnickrobinson
        – laying bare the PM’s shifting excuses for the scandal….and refusing to let Steve Barclay dodge the questions”

        There were other similar tweets praising Robinsons “skewering of”


        • StewGreen says:

          In the now edited version of the prog
          They get 1h43m and start reviewing the papers
          Robinson does the Partygate reviews Mail/Times then says
          “most powerful though perhaps is an ONLINE sketch by Rob Hutton
          writing in the magazine called the Critic”
          .. reads the melodramatic prose, which didn’t give much detail
          vomit, walls, government cleaner, Gomes, covid died, Boris
          .. The omission led you to the 2 FakeNews assumptions Gomes was cleaning #10 and died FROM Covid

          Then later
          “now it’s 10 past 8” … windfall tax .. melodramatic partygate talk
          ‘It’s not over ..Boris could be forced to quit’
          This was massive framing that was 2.5 minutes long
          After the item “the time now is 8:26”
          The time on Iplayer was 24:30 when the interview finished
          So at least 90 seconds has been edited out.. the entire section about Gomes
          That 90 seconds is in the Daily Mirror story

          I guess R4today originally repeated their cleaner bit
          hence why another 90s got lopped off now

    They say recycling is good for the planet. Our media are certainly rehashing the culture of long-past popular music for all they’re worth…

    So what was it like to watch 70s Abba on stage in 2022? First review of stunning avatar show‘ (Daily Mail)

    Mamma mia!‘ exclaims the Express: ‘ABBA reunited in Britain for first time in 40 years

    Inevitably: ‘Re-Bjorn‘ says the giveaway Metro: ‘Abba back together for world premier of their avatar show

    Both Mirror and Guardian further plug the Abba premier on their frontpages.

    The ‘i’ prides itself on a (slightly) younger audience and outlook – pitching their nostalgia at the Silver Jubilee year, 1977: ‘John Lydon lets rip at Sex Pistols, their director – and his wife’s unbearable Alzheimer’s

    No future! That was the punk rock slogan.

    The Guardian seems to have enjoyed the Brit Pop hiatus under Tony Blair and one of the battling brother frontmen from Oasis makes a rather apposite observation on modern culture: ‘“When I die I’ll be mumified and put in a museum” Liam Gallagher

    With popular culture stuck somewhere between the 1970s and Cool Britannia we face politics and economics decidedly of the former… with double-digit inflation and prices and incomes policies: ‘Rishi’s £1,200 boost for 8m‘ (Express); ‘Every home to get £400 cut in energy bills‘ (‘i’)

    Fraser Nelson in the Telegraph suggests: ‘The Tories are driving us into recession. Boris and Rishi have caught Britain in a high-tax trap

    The BBC would still have us believe the future is green: ‘The cost of rapidly charging an electric car has risen sharply as energy costs soar, the RAC has said. However, electric car charging still remains cheaper than petrol and diesel, the motoring organisation said.’

    One day we’ll all be pootling around in 10-mile-an-hour electric golf buggies – and be happy?

    As for the weekly food shopping bill… One notes the compulsory carrier bag charge was originally 5p – a small token charge as taxes tend to be when first mooted – then it was bumped up to 10p as of May 2021. Mr AsISeeIt had mixed feelings. His stash of plastic bags suddenly doubled in value overnight. Now Sainsburys have redoubled to a charge of 20p per bag. Plastic carriers might turn out to be better investment than gold or crypto.

    How’s that war going, you know, the war Putin is losing? A tiny other news bulletin at the very foot of the Times tells us: ‘Russians advance. Fighting in the eastern Donbas has reached its fiercest level yet, Ukraine said, as Russian troops pushed deeper into the region from several directions

    How true is the new Top Gun?‘ demands the Times2 movie review of Tom Cruise, 59, and his latest all-action nostalgic supersonic jet revival vehicle – apparently there are no such requests for veracity when it comes to real life western military and security assessments delivered daily without question via our media.

    Russian failures fuelled by Vladimir Putin’s meddling‘ (Times May 2022); ‘Military chiefs made scapegoats for Russia’s battlefield failures‘ (Times May 2022)

    The BBC has a tried and tested cost-cutting strategy. Rather than look at the top earners or make savings across the board – Pick an area of the empire that has a few dedicated articulate supporters and threaten to cut it outright – the following scramble of outrage will likely cancel the proposed cut: ‘BBC4 to move online‘ (Times)

    Are we being served? ‘Wimbledon calls time on “Mrs” and “Miss”‘ (Telegraph) – the inevitable ever-onward advance of PC.

    Trans and non-binary people included in menopause guidance‘ (‘i’)

    Bloke becomes a dog‘ (Daily Star)

    There are, apparently, a few holdouts of old pale and stale chaps somewhere ooop north: ‘Yorkshire pride. Parkinson, Boycott and Bird reunited in Barnsley‘ (Telegraph)

    In further celeb news we have the good, the bad and the ugly – you decide…

    Tributes to good fella Ray‘ (Star)

    “I’m funny how? I mean, funny like I’m a clown? I amuse you?”

    Spacey charged with sex offences‘ (Express)

    Donbas to the Donmar…?

    Footie star Andy Caroll passes out with a blonde after a day of partying‘ (Sun)

    He shoots, he scores.

    What I cannot get round, is the fact that most of us, the indigenous race of Great Britain, are persistently barraged with accusations of past ‘colonialism’, while in many cases, bettering the opportunities for undeveloped countries, where nowadays, immigration to our islands is out of control, and for the most part, these people are doing exactly the same thing to us!

    Looking at several northern towns, and of course awful places like Tower Hamlets, normal British citizens are certainly on the decline, and this continual bowing to the great god ‘diversidee’ is meaningless if all these newcomers just roll up and sit there waiting to be housed, fed, watered, taught and healed.

    We’re fortunate here in our own part of Kent, (forgetting the boat people for the moment), because as far as we’re concerned, the foreign population is less than one percent, negligible in fact and I really have no wish to scoff their sort of grub or follow the lifestyles which are truly alien to us here. I do feel very sorry for like-minded British people having their neighbourhoods taken over by strange, non-British ‘rules’ etc.

    …And ‘forgetting the boat people’, is something we can all lay at the Home Secretary’s door, as she seems to be doing absolutely nothing about stemming the influx, but luckily, they seem to pass through Kent to where all their relatives and religions are steadily taking over huge swathes of British countryside and many once-proud towns.

      The UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has said:

      “We have carefully reviewed clinical trial data in children aged 12 to 15 years and have concluded that the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective in this age group and that the benefits of this vaccine outweigh any risk.

      “We have in place a comprehensive safety surveillance strategy for monitoring the safety of all UK-approved COVID-19 vaccines and this surveillance will include the 12- to 15-year age group.

      “No extension to an authorisation would be approved unless the expected standards of safety, quality and effectiveness have been met.

      “It will now be for the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) to advise on whether this age group will be vaccinated as part of the deployment programme.”
