COVAX is an internationally recognised system. China’s efforts all come with strings attached, usually as part of their Silk Road. Why does CP take every opportunity to misinform and provide negative untrue stories on U.K. Is he a bot?
Lol still struggling to tell the difference between 10% and 90% halfwit?

The UK had been criticised in many quartets over its vaccine nationalism. You'd not know that because you don't believe in reading news lol

150 Oxford dons refuse to teach in Rhodes statue row.
More than 150 Oxford dons are boycotting Oriel College and refusing to teach its students in protest at its decision to keep the Cecil Rhodes statue,.

Who is in charge of the dons? It should be disciplinary action.
It is about time there are consequences for this woke idiocy.

The majority of Universities are independent bodies run by a Chancellor, so I would guess that the Dons report to their respective Chancellor.

The Chancellor at Rhodes College has an interesting dilemma; shell out to have the statue removed or run the risk of losing income from the Foreign Students currently not being tutored by the missing Dons.

They could of course sack the Dons and employ other people, but that will fool no one; down grading the standard of education will result in heavier losses.

I reckon that statue will be gone fairly soon.

Oriel went back on their word and ignored a commission. They're refusing to even contextualise his statue.

Unfortunately for the interested people who want Rhodes to fall, there's a bit of graft involved.
Oriel is a listed building, and its removal would be subject to legal and planning processes involving the City Council, Historic England and the Secretary of State for Housing along with Communities and Local Government.

There is your issue; that's a few years' worth of meetings for academia types by which time they'd have moved onto something else anyway.

A plaque explaining a little about the man might be a good first step...

Anyone who doesn't know the history of Rhodes (especially by now) should be nowhere near such a great seat of learning.
It would be a plaque of shame to placate the wokes and endow a shallow sense of superiority to those who wish it be so.
