While the UK Government has now embarked on a programme of starting to offer 8.5 million who are eligible a third booster vaccine, the number of people in the world’s poorest countries who have been fully vaccinated is just 1.3 per cent. Earlier this year, Prime Minister Boris Johnson promised to supply 100 million surplus vaccines within the next year to poor countries but, as with so many of his promises, he has delivered fewer than 10 per cent of this figure. The lack of equitable global vaccine distribution should be a source of great shame for Britain and other rich nations.

UN experts say switching to a plant-based diet can help fight climate change. They say that more people could be fed using less land if individuals cut down on eating meat.

The 95-year-old queen, the world's oldest and longest-reigning monarch, stayed overnight at London's King Edward VII private hospital last Wednesday after undergoing "preliminary investigations" for an unspecified but not COVID-19 related ailment.

Chen Ing-wen strides up to a rocky outcrop some 3 km (1.9 miles) from China's coast on Taiwan-controlled Kinmen island and demonstrates how as a soldier he used to shoot from there at Chinese trawlers that got too close. "It was just to scare them - but they weren't scared," said Chen, 50, who did his military service on Kinmen from 1991 to 1993. Sitting on the front line between Taiwan and China, Kinmen is the last place where the two engaged in major fighting, in 1958 at the height of the Cold War, and where memories of war are burned into minds decades later - large model soldiers point guns at China from some old bunkers.
