Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Pandemic and Leading Big Pharma ... after the Opioid Scandal OxyContin

Corona will stay as a virus requiring an annual vaccination campaign similar to the influenza shot. Never mind that SARS CoV-2 has devastating long-term impact on the health of individuals.

Working for the NHS in seven hospitals in the City of London ...

"Don't be so convulsive and get the corona vaccine on the market now"

Lower safety requirements and bring the corona vaccine to market early now that the world is on fire. The Dutch doctor and professor Marcel Levi, boss of seven hospitals in London, makes this striking appeal in an interview with this site. "Yes, you take a small risk with that. But you do that because the alternative is much worse."

Marcel will be appointed by Mark in The Netherlands as head in the scientific group to advice PM Rutte to lead the onslaught ... not on the deadly SARS Covid-2, but the people. Let her rip and the pharmaceuticals do the rest.

Yes, Mark the "no policy, no vision, no scruples" politician will lead his party in the 2021 election and become the longest sitting PM ever beating out Ruud Lubbers.

It's the economy, stupid!"
