Passing Observations 106
Dr Vernon Coleman
This is a long standing series of small items which have caught my eye or mind and which seem relevant, startling, amusing or all three. Occasionally, items which appear here may return as a longer piece. Mostly they will not.
1. The covid-19 jab is killing lots of people. The people who agreed to be jabbed are clearly the most ignorant and stupid. Maybe that was the idea. Cull the ignorant and stupid.
2. An SNP MP called Black was caught drinking alcohol on a train. And Sturgeon was caught breaking her own mask laws. Is the SNP determined to outdo the Tories and become the UK’s naughty party?
3. Tony Brooks and Stirling Moss both died at the age of 90. I am waiting for the BBC’s reporting staff to conclude that this is clear evidence that racing motor cars is an aid to longevity.
4. I have always been a lover of cafes. But the fun is rapidly disappearing. Many cafes can no longer afford any heating. I sat in one the other day, shivered for a while, and then put on my coat, hat and scarf while I drank my coffee.
5. Most of the doctors and scientists who have told the truth about covid-19 and the associated treatment programmes, and who have been maligned in the last two years by garbage distributors such as Wikipedia and Google, are male, white and over 60 years of age. Is this clear proof that the campaign against truth-tellers is sexist, racist and ageist? Why aren’t Wikipedia and Google being investigated by the authorities?
6. Hospitals in the UK are making it difficult for relatives and friends to visit patients in hospital. Is this because they are ashamed of the fact that hospitals are dirty and unsuitable for caring for the sick? Are they worried that visitors will notice how badly our hospitals are run?
7. Since we moved to London I find that the traffic is truly scary – and I have not yet found the courage to attempt to drive into the city itself. Still, the rules in the newly revised woke Highway Code mean that within a month or two there will be hardly any cars on the roads. There are 1001 ways to lose your driving licence these days and it’s difficult not to believe that this is the plan. Maybe someone from Extinction Rebellion wrote the new Highway Code? I wouldn’t bet against the idea.
8. After the end of World War II, food rationing continued in Britain for far longer than it existed in Germany.
9. The 25 wealthiest Americans paid tax at a rate of 3.4% on the $401 billion they earned between 2014 and 2018.
10. In 2021, Facebook’s parent company paid $25.2 million for providing personal security for M.Zuckerburg, the Facebook boss.
11. The lack of intelligence among global warming freaks is substantiated by the fact that most of them have worn masks for two years and are still wearing them. Wearing masks won’t have helped what little brain tissue they had to start with.
12. `A grain in the balance will determine which individual shall live and which shall die.’ – Charles Darwin, `On the Origin of Species’ 1859. It’s the little things that matter.
13. I am appalled and embarrassed by the number of doctors who merrily gave covid jabs which they must have known were neither useful nor safe. Doctors who like a little Latin for gravitas should try this one: Qui tacet consentire videtur’.
14. They faked a pandemic, they faked a test and they faked a cure. That’s a lot of fakery.
15. A major American insurance company has reported that the mortality rate among 18-64 year olds has risen by 40%. Now why on earth could that be?
16. The shortage of Hormone Replacement Therapy in the UK will save thousands of lives. HRT is a dangerous and unnecessary treatment which was devised to make money for drug companies. The women demanding it, taking it and promoting it need to do some serious research into the side effects.
17. All good writing offends someone.
18. In the UK it has been suggested that people over the age of 65 shouldn’t be allowed to vote. This is nonsense. It is people who read The Guardian or pay the BBC licence fee who should not be allowed to vote.
19. A clearly decerebrate blogger recently suggested that since my predictions about this fake pandemic have been accurate for two years this proves that I must be a Rothschild. I sometimes struggle to find the strength. Campaigning against the fraud has destroyed my career and reputation. I was mad to start fighting this fraud and I must be mad to carry on. (For the record, I’m not even Jewish. I am Christian.)
20. `…we all know what governments do. They make the rules for you, and break them themselves. They hike your taxes and give themselves a pay rise. They take your money away and shower it on all kinds of lousy foreign governments. They fly in choppers while you’re stuck in a traffic jam. They let the banks and insurance companies shaft you in exchange for political campaign money.’ Len Deighton, `Spy Sinker’, 1990.

Vernon Coleman’s book `Memories 2’ is the second volume of his autobiography. It’s unusual in that it consists of a mixture of reflections, experiences, confessions, regrets and observations – rather than the usual `and then I had lunch with…’ sort of autobiography. `Memories 2’ is, like `Memories 1’, available as an eBook, a paperback and a hardback.
