TEN million jabs. A magnificent milestone. A triumph for Britain.
How is the EU responding? With further attempts to undermine our Oxford vaccine with falsehoods about its safety.

But its panicking leaders look more reckless and self-serving by the day.
Early evidence indicates the AstraZeneca jab slashes transmission of Covid as well as the numbers hospitalised or dying.
That is vital for a rapid end to our lockdown and the return of more normal life. It will mean the virus finding fewer and fewer people to infect.
If our rollout continues at its current stellar pace, the daily death toll is soon likely to begin falling. Cases and hospitalisations should drop like a stone once those below 70 start getting jabs.

Brussels is ashamed it has secured so few doses.
Rightly so. Because the consequences of its folly look increasingly dire.
KEIR Starmer has made himself a laughing stock in his desperation to persuade Britain to forget his past and his true beliefs.
He is the man who, with the People’s Vote brigade, spent years scheming to negate the Brexit verdict of 17.4million mainly working-class people.

Yesterday Labour’s struggling leader tried to claim he hadn’t backed Britain staying in the European Medicines Agency, despite being filmed doing so.
This matters. Because had we followed his advice — plus that of other Labour Remainers to join the EU vaccine programme — our rollout would be as lethally sluggish as theirs.
Starmer finally apologised once his denials were proved worthless. But he will apparently say anything, no matter how insincere or plain false, in his bid to win back former Red Wall seats.
Trouble is, voters have bigger brains and longer memories than he gives them credit for.
HOW moving last night’s national clap for Captain Tom was.
And how fitting it would be if a major hospital was renamed after him. Better still, a new one built in his memory.

There are many excellent suggestions for marking the life and legacy of the 100-year-old war hero who raised so much for NHS staff and rallied the nation in the early days of this crisis.
But we have no doubt he would have preferred a new hospital to any number of statues or plaques . . .
No matter how much his admirable feats deserved those accolades too.
