Patent Absurdity

We are all aware, because our market-appointed masters in the corporate feudal system never tire of telling us, that private enterprise is the best way to get things done, except when the boardroom's latest indiscretion merits another handout from the taxpayer. Nevertheless, a foreigner with a funny name has sought to undermine Global Britain's world-beating vaccinatory supremacy by demanding that the law of patents be abandoned, in a limited and specific way, for the dubious benefit of the lesser breeds. Nations whose destiny is manifestly less glorious than our own are agitating for a waiver of intellectual property rights in the case of vaccine patents: a measure to which pharmaceutical corporations and their friends in government are opposed, on the grounds that keeping poor people alive would interfere with the process of scientific discovery. It would certainly be a most demoralising experience for the remnants of Britain's fact-based community if the fruits of their pluck and gumption were to benefit anyone other than the more fiscally deserving specimens of the master race.
