Boris Johnson is on course to sign and join the World Health Organization's pandemic treaty, which gives the WHO the power to dictate the laws of the U.K. with a flick of an unelected members finger.

In this report, we go through some of the details. A draft text of the WHO's pandemic treaty is expected for 1 August 2022. Ensuring a “transparent, inclusive and fair” procedure will require the “full participation of all member states with meaningful inclusion of non-state actors.”

A pair of experts cited by the London School of Economics recommend the involvement of the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, World Trade Organization and International Labour Organization.

As well, the treaty will need the involvement of regional bodies like the African Union and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

“Without the support of civil society,” LSE says, “a pandemic treaty will not see the light of day, or it will not protect those most at risk.”

It almost feels like another Brexit 2.0 is on the horizon.
