Froggy-bashing and the French flu vaccine

How about some consistency?

The Anglosphere — in the form of an American company with an English factory — having let us down, our sole source of flu vaccine this year is a French firm, Adventis Pasteur. Will those who patriotically insisted on boycotting French wines now extend that boycott to cheese-eating surrender money vaccine?

Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori.

And, in this case, not only sweet and fitting but eugenic as well.
