They have one of those wiki entries with an entire section dedicated to "Controversies,"
this is a minor life goal of mine

Controversies » Incident involving theft of Michael D. Higgins’ Trousers
Controversies » Twitter fight with Grimes
Controiversies » Alleged involvement in overthrow of Gambian Government

etc

I've been trying to follow that and I keep getting confused, I wonder if it's just some US vs UK vaccine war stuff.
that's how it reads to me. The Oxford announced that their vaccine produced results, but didn't tell them how it got those results.

And thats, if I'm reading it correctly, what the US crowd are questioning. Not the results themselves, but how they arrived at them.

I just mean, UK releases vaccine, suddenly a whole load of US university types WITH NO TIES WHATSOEVER TO THE US DEVELOPED VACCINES NO SIR and the like start querying the results, possibly in benign ways possibly not, the media picks up on it as "UK vaccine is fake and will kill you," by the time it's all sorted out people have decided not to take the risk and to go with US vaccines. If you applied the same scrutiny to US developed vaccines loudly in the media would they have similar problems? (The answer might be that they already did and they were fine)

It's all a bit conspiracy minded I know but considering earlier this year US officials were literally stopping shipments of PPE bound for the rest of the world on the runway and saying they'll buy them for twice the amount... this story feels like a bit of a stitch up to me.


I mean, we've already decided to write off the Sputnik Vaccine (showing encouraging results) on the basis that Russians can't be trusted 🤷‍♂️
