Is the UK vaccine rollout being coordinated by the UK Government or are the four nations doing the logistics themselves?
My understanding is the procurement is done by UK Gov, and it is divided strictly by population between the 4 nations. However the actual vaccination process is devolved. The who, the where and the how is a matter for Hancock (Eng) and then Foster, Sturgeon and Drakeford. So far Hancock and Foster are doing well, the other two not so much. The Scottish Health Minister is an appalling chain smoking communist called Jeanne Freeman. She makes Williamson look competent.

The normal rules of politics no longer exists in Scotland, the SNP Government up there are a borderline cult and with only minimal press and media scrutiny the likes of Sturgeon can just about get away with murder.

Some may argue that, collectively, we were actually a happier bunch in the sixties. Debt/GDP/Ratios etc at the end of the day are just numbers.
Numbers that mean taxpayers money spent on paying interest on the loan. Private enterprise promoting economists talk about high levels of government debt being a negative for the performance of the economy, "crowding out" of private investment is a phrase that is used.
