    Recent conclusions of the results of the inoculation of the English Oxford vaccine in Argentine volunteers reveal that those who received placebo continue to claim the Argentine sovereignty of the Malvinas, the group that received the British Antivirus now calls them Falklands

    “...developed, patented and owned by a Swedish Company”

    “AZD1222 was co-invented by the University of Oxford” (AstraZeneca website).

    I didn't know the University of Oxford was in Sweden. I suppose it isn't surprising that it isn't.... neither is AstraZeneca which is headquartered in Cambridge..... again in the UK, not Sweden.

    With more employees in the UK (7,100) than Sweden (6,500). Main listing on the London stock exchange and no board meetings in Sweden.

    What an odd Swedish company! Probably because it isn't. A more correct term would be a British-Swedish company.

    But great to see it team up with a British university to develop a vaccine that can now be produced in Argentina.

    A company that is global enough and not at all parochial in having a French-born CEO.

    Seems understanding isn't as easy as a single word!

    Geeeeeeeeeeeee....

    One better ALWAYS fact-checks the erroneous numbers that the Engrishpithecus & Australopitecus Turnips in here luuuuuuuuuuv to provide..., to cater for their Anglo Inferiority Complex...

    For example..., OZ skippy above..., in his usual boyish insecure haughty mode..., states...:
    ***” (Astrazeneca) With more employees in the UK (7,100) than Sweden (6,500)....“***

    I say...:
    ”We employ 6,500 employees across five sites in the UK“
    https://www.astrazeneca.co.uk/about-us.html

    ”Vi har 7,200 medarbetare i Sverige, 4,800 finns i Södertälje och 2,400 i Göteborg.”

    Seems to be that the young dingo puppie..., in his best Basil Fawlty way..., just tried to invert the figures to made them Anglos look better than them Swedes... ;-)

    Even the luuuvely little Bush Kangaroo was smarter than that..., laddie...
    Capisce...?

    Fact check away. Astra Zeneca Annual Report, page 44.

    https://www.astrazeneca.com/content/dam/az/Investor_Relations/annual-report-2019/pdf/AstraZeneca_AR_2019.pdf

    Should we blame that rascally Pascal for that? He signed off on it.

    The annual report is after all, a legal document fulfilling certain reporting obligations... can't say the same for a web page. Unsure about the legal system (?) in Argentina but an annual report would be considered more authoritative. Don't you agree?

    I will accept you withdrawing your claim that I “just tried to invert the figures to made them Anglos look better than them Swedes”.

    You can accept when you have made a false accusation, can't you?

    Any issue with the other facts? Yeah, didn't think so!

    A December 2019 auld PDF..., full of outdated facts..., in this Internet times...?

    Tell ya what...
    - I'll happily withdraw my claim that you “just tried to invert the figures to made them Anglos look better than them Swedes”..., if you sell me one of your bitcoins at the December 2019 cotization...

    Deal...?

    Prolixity doesn't make your initial false claim disappear.

    Carry on!

    Booooooooooooring....
    - But I'll repeat my..., slightly modified..., understated clickbait from above...:

    - This Anglo Australopithecus Turnip always brighten me day with his Basil Fawlty kind of Turnipidity... :-)
    -A vaccine..., developed, patented and owned by a Swedish Pharmaceutical Company..., presided by a Swedish Chairman..., a French CEO..., a French CFO and nine (9) VP's of seven (7) different nationalities..., and he Thinks..., it must be Brutish... :-))))))))))))))))))

    Mind you..., folks...
    It is a fact that the the Brutish have played an important subordinate role in the development of this vaccine...
    In the case of the Board of Directors..., in the form of one (1) VP born in Engeland..., named “Menelaos Pangalos”...
    Geeeeeeeeeeeee...
    He may even be of Australian descendance...!
    I seem to remember a good Greek Restaurant under that name in Melbourne..., some 50 years ago...

    Capisce..., me dear parochial bush kangaroo...?

    I hear they are going to use it in Argentina, mind you at only $2 a pop it is probably the only vaccine Argentina can afford, realistically.

    We just won’t tell them about the Nanobots in it.

    Controlled from Mount Pleasant.
