COVID-19 pandemic: Should vaccination be compulsory? | To the point

To call it a matter of life and death is not hyperbole. With a fourth wave of COVID-19 rolling across Europe, physicians here in Germany are warning of disastrous trade-offs as intensive care units reach capacity and patients are transferred abroad for treatment.

Calls for mandatory vaccination are growing louder – neighboring countries like Austria are leading the way. Other countries are reimposing lockdowns. Not without resistance, as evidenced by recent protests. Today we’re asking: COVID-19 pandemic: Should vaccination be compulsory?

Windrush: Home Office should no longer run compensation scheme, say MPs

MPs have criticised the way the Windrush compensation scheme operates and called for the Home Office to be stripped of responsibility for running it.

The cross-party Commons Home Affairs Committee said the scheme should be transferred to an independent organisation to increase trust and encourage more applications.

The MPs said the design of the scheme contained the same "bureaucratic insensitivities" that led to the Windrush scandal in the first place, which was a "damning indictment of the Home Office".

We also spoke to Anthony Bryan, a victim of the Windrush scandal, who had lived and worked in the UK for 50 years when he was wrongly classified as an illegal immigrant and almost deported.
