[London / Berlin, 7th Reuters]–The UK has restricted its use of the new coronavirus vaccine made by AstraZeneca on the 7th, while Germany has divided the response, such as allowing all applicants to be vaccinated. The difference in the progress of vaccination is reflected in the comparison between the benefits of vaccination and the risk of developing rare thrombosis.

In the UK, which relies heavily on AstraZeneca vaccines, 51% of the population received at least the first dose. The number of deaths per day due to infectious diseases has fallen to the low double digits.

Under these circumstances, British officials recommended on the 7th that young people under the age of 40 should be vaccinated with a non-AstraZeneca corona vaccine. It is said that the risk of developing thrombosis is small, so the risk was raised from the conventional age of 30 or younger.

Meanwhile, German Health Minister Sparn has announced that AstraZeneca vaccines will be freely available to those who wish, based on the advice of doctors. He said that he would be allowed to receive the second vaccination as early as four weeks after the first vaccination.

According to official data, the number of new infections per 100,000 population in Germany over the past seven days has been declining to 126, but it is about six times that of the United Kingdom.

Antony Hahnden, Vice-Chairman of the Joint Commission on Vaccines and Vaccinations in the United Kingdom (JCVI), emphasized that the decision by the British authorities is “based on epidemiology in the United Kingdom.” Germany has a high infection rate and the balance of benefits and risks of AstraZeneca vaccines is different from that of the United Kingdom.

Bloomberg News.

More than 35 million people have been vaccinated with the first dose of the vaccine so far, and a second dose has been given to 16.7 million of them, according to the latest government data, Bloomberg said.

The country has already offered to vaccinate everyone over the age of forty, and is now planning to vaccinate young people, whose risk of contracting the disease is low but there is still a risk of transmission.

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization recommended that people under the age of 40 years receive a vaccine other than “AstraZeneca” due to concerns that extremely rare blood clots are more likely among young people after receiving the vaccination.

British by-election, ruling party candidate wins overwhelmingly at the opposition / Labor Party’s stronghold | Reuters

[London, 7th Reuters]–The ruling and Conservative candidates won the by-elections of the House of Representatives in Hartlepool, northern England on the 6th, despite the strong ground of the opposition and Labor parties.

Conservative candidate Jill Mortimer received 15,529 votes, well above Labor Party candidate Paul Williams’s 8,589 votes. Hartlepool is the Labor Party’s stronghold, and until a few years ago it was thought impossible to win a seat in the Conservative Party.

The by-elections were held following the resignation of Labor lawmakers in March. The Conservative victory will help Prime Minister Johnson’s policy management during the coronavirus crisis.

“It was a seat that the Labor Party should protect, but it was a spectacular reversal,” political science professor Michael Thrasher told Sky News.

Labor Party leader Keir Starmer, who took office after the big defeat in the 2019 general election, is expected to be under further pressure to reform the party. “I can’t hide the shocking consequences for the Labor Party,” Reed, an aide to him, told the BBC. “It’s telling us that the Labor Party is changing slowly. We need to accelerate.” ..

On the 6th, local parliamentary elections will be voted in various places, and the Scottish parliamentary election will be a touchstone for measuring the momentum of independence from Britain.

It is taking a long time to count the votes due to restrictions on measures against the new coronavirus, and the results are expected to be revealed in the next few days.

UK, EU financial market access is wrong in its willingness to compensate = authorities | Reuters

[London, 6th Reuters]-Nikil Lati, CEO of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), said on the 6th that the British authorities would lose their freedom due to a review of financial regulations in London. It was a mistake to secure access to the European Union (EU) market for financial institutions based in London.

The UK left the EU completely at the end of December last year. Financial institutions in London’s financial district City remain deprived of access to the EU market as the EU does not give a “equivalence rating” that UK financial regulation recognizes as being at the same level as the EU. The EU wants to see how far the UK will move away from EU regulation and is not in a hurry to make an equivalence assessment.

In a speech, CEO Rathi stated that the UK would regulate itself in the interests of domestic financial markets and consumers. He emphasized that when changing the rules inherited from the EU, he kept in mind the “uniqueness and needs” of the UK market and did not simply aim to move away from EU regulation.

“Any change in the regulatory system should take into account the impact on EU equivalence, but ensuring equivalence at any cost is not consistent with the FCA’s objectives. Improving the functioning of the UK market. It also includes the opportunity cost in case of failure to attempt. “

Apart from this, Bank of England Governor Bailey expressed his belief that there should be a “very clear difference” in equivalence and location policy.

The EU is requesting European banks to relocate their euro-denominated derivative clearing operations from London to Frankfurt by mid-2022.

“Equivalence is about where residents in the region do business, location is outside the region. It’s a big step beyond,” Bailey said. “It’s in line with the interests of financial markets and financial stability.” I don’t think. “

Jersey .. the story of an island that ignited a “volcano of fury” between France and Britain

<div id="firstBodyDiv" data-bind-html-content-type="article" data-bind-html-compile="article.body" data-first-article-body="

The small island that is located within the English Channel and follows British sovereignty, but is closer to the French coast in the Normandy region (only 16 kilometers), where French fishermen protested against these procedural rules imposed by Britain, and threatened to go near the coasts of the island and besiege its sea port, which led The British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, ordered the dispatch of two British Royal Navy escort ships to the area near the island, to monitor the protests, as France responded by sending two naval boats to the waters surrounding the island, a French coast guard spokesman told the local news agency that it is a procedure involving the gendarmerie. And marine escort. France has escalated the stand against the United Kingdom, a memorandum of its intention to cut off the electricity to the island, according to French Navy Secretary Anike Girardin.

The political / military crisis over the small island, which does not exceed 120 square kilometers, has historically bloody recalled the conflicts between the two countries over sovereignty over one or the other of the common areas between the two countries, or other regions of the world.

Even the island of Jersey, over which recent tension erupted, is one of the legacies of that long, centuries-old conflict. The island was part of "Duchy of Normandy" Which was located in the west of France, and was subsequently occupied by Britain, and when it lost its rule during the wars of the early thirteenth century, it granted the island autonomy, which remained symbolic in relation to the British sovereignty and crown.

For his part, a researcher at the European Studies Center, Youssef Hamlan, ruled out that the current tension between the two countries would reach the levels of a military clash.

This was explained by the strength of European institutions and their ability to control differences between them and Britain, and this was proven through the marathon exit negotiations that took place between them over the past two years.

But Laman added in an interview with "Sky News Arabia" "But this does not negate the strategic importance of the island for the two countries, as the island is the gateway to the English Channel for Britain, and its occupation in 1940 was by the Nazi army "German" The most important mechanism of the famous naval blockade imposed on Britain throughout the Second World War, the separation of Britain’s connection with the European world, and the current British political, economic and military elites lived through that difficult stage.

The scenes of warships facing each other near the island of Jersey, and the reciprocal political statements of the leaders of the two countries that preceded them, which opened in the public memory and on social networking pages the history of the protracted military conflicts between the two countries, which British historian Eric Hobsbawm said as the wars that shaped the history of the European continent, including World history.

During the two famous world wars, which the two countries entered as one side in the face of Germany, history witnessed twenty-one wars between the two countries during the last ten centuries, according to the Encyclopedia of British Knowledge, at the rate of a devastating war every 5 decades, which turned them into the world’s most warlike countries between them. At all.

In its report on the history of warfare, he mentions the European Institute for Security Studies "ISS" That 3 joint wars between the two countries were of exceptional influence, in a way that drew all European countries, and sometimes the world, to join them. During those three wars, the two countries were two world empires, and the conflict between them represented a confrontation between the global poles.

The long Hundred Years War between the two countries, which took place from the middle of the fourth century to the middle of the fifteenth century, the longest and most influential of these wars.

Because of the British demands to seize the throne in France, a series of devastating wars broke out between the two countries during that period, ending with the British defeat and the exit of its forces from the current French mainland.

This war was exceptional in terms of its use of modern firearms at the time, in particular artillery.

Historians also saw it as the first war that created the national identity of the inhabitants of the two countries, a premise that they later considered the basis of the European Renaissance.

The other major war between the two countries broke out in the late eighteenth century. British colonial control had invaded almost the entire world at that time, which almost turned it into a power capable of dominating again over all of Europe, including France itself.

It is noteworthy that the war between the two countries began in 1778, through military skirmishes on the island of Jersey itself, where the British navy was about to rush to the French mainland, had it not been for the treaty France signed with the United States, which had recently been liberated from British colonialism.

Also, Spain, which was in conflict with Britain, entered the war two years after its outbreak on the side of France, which created a kind of balance in the confrontation between the two parties.

Some historians call that war actually the First World War, because it included the entire world, from the European continent to India, Africa and North America, where the forces loyal to one of the two empires were facing fierce battles for more than 4 years.

The costly war ended with British bargaining and concessions in favor of France, after the cities of Britain witnessed civil protests against that war, and it was the first time that popular civilian forces were able to influence the course of the wars.

The long war that broke out between the two countries after the victory of the Great French Revolution in 1789 was the last of those famous and destructive wars between them, as Britain led a large group of European countries and political forces opposing the French revolutionary ideas, especially after Napoleon Bonaparte took over the leadership of France, so that contemporary historians call it With the Napoleonic Wars.

During the period from 1804 to 1815, that war included all European regions, including Russia and eastern Europe.

The forces that said about themselves were revolutionary and demanded a set of rights and forms of government, they supported France and fought on its side, while Britain supported the traditional European powers. "Feudalism", Which was afraid of French revolutionary ideas, and believed that it should suffocate it in its infancy, until the war ended with the famous Battle of Waterloo, in which Bonaparte’s forces lost, and the Second Treaty of Paris was signed.
