Passing Observations 168

Dr Vernon Coleman

1. The MCC (a cricket club and possibly the world’s most woke organisation) claims that it purchases electricity from a wind farm in the Irish Sea. This may be so but unless a special cable runs from the wind farm to St John’s Wood in London, I am afraid that the electricity that the club uses (and which dribbles out of the sockets in the pavilion) comes from the National Grid, and the electricity in the National Grid contains the stuff produced from wind farms all mixed up with the stuff obtained from burning bits of tree, lumps of coal and oil and natural gas.

2. `It is the sacred principles enshrined in the United Nations Charter to which the American people will henceforth pledge their allegiance.’ President George Bush, 1992. (And yet, sadly, there are still Americans who think they are pledging allegiance to the flag.)

3. `National sovereignty is no longer a viable concept,’ Zbigniew Brzenzinski, National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter.

4. `We are grateful to The Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promise of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The super-national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practised in past centuries.’ David Rockefeller at a 1991 Bilderberger meeting.

5. If you are travelling anywhere in a group buy an old TV camera (it doesn’t have to work), a tape recorder and a microphone on a stick and tell everyone you meet that you are making a TV documentary. You will be treated very well.

6. `Behind every great fortune lies a great crime.’ – Balzac.

7. The current top-selling drug is a cancer immunotherapy product which is expected to bring in $24 billion this year. Oddly enough the Daily Mirror and a large UK cancer charity were distinctly unimpressed a quarter of a century ago when I founded a website devoted to the importance of the immune system in the treatment of cancer.

8. Gordon Brown did more than anyone else to destroy Britain. By introducing and enforcing targets, he destroyed the fabric of just about every part of our society. (If you want to know more please read `Gordon is a Moron’ by Vernon Coleman, which is available on Amazon.)

9. Countries have been manipulating the weather for decades. In 2005, President George W Bush and Vladimir Putin were waiting for Russia’s May Day parade to start. It was raining. `I didn’t think it ever rained on your parade,’ said Bush. Putin smiled. Within an hour the clouds cleared and the sun shone. `How did you do that?’ asked Bush. `We made it rain in the Ukraine’ answered Putin.

10. Thanks to social distancing, masks and other left over bits of covid nonsense, surgeons in the UK’s lamentable National Health Service now operate once a fortnight. They spend the other nine days dealing with administration and practising their social distancing techniques. The appallingly long waiting lists are just getting ever longer.

11. More and more car parks now require a special App before a motorist can pay to park their car. And there are 30 different parking Apps available so the chances of those with smart phones having the right App on their phone are low. And for the third of those over 65 who don’t own a smart phone there is no chance. There is a reason for this chaos, of course. The climate change psychos don’t want anyone travelling, and making it impossible for drivers to park helps cut down the travelling.

12. Psychologists have noticed (at last) that smart phones and social media are, separately and together, causing a massive increase in the incidence of mental health problems among children and teenagers. No one will do anything about this, of course. You will own nothing except a smart phone and you will be unhappy.

13. `We die twice. Once when the breath leaves our body for the last time and once when the last person to know us says our name for the last time.’ – from the brilliant film `Stand up Guys’.

14. Man seems to have an irrepressible and unfathomable desire to be somewhere else, presumably in the belief, or at least the hope, that the somewhere else will in some respect be better than the wherever it is that they are at the moment. It is this driving force which pushes men and women and entire families to become vagabonds, perennially miserable gypsies, queuing on the motorway to get to the airport when they can queue and be humiliated and treated appalling and then herded into a tin tube and flown off (eventually) to some foreign country where they will be cheated and where the weather will be far too hot or very disappointing and the food will be too greasy or too something and they will need constant treatment with the medication they thoughtfully brought with them.

15. Newspapers, magazines, television and radio are already run by robots. You feed in a press release, press a button and out comes a neatly written news story. It isn’t widely known but I have heard it rumoured that the BBC hasn’t employed a live person for a decade or more.

16. I do wish that celebrities would never announce that they have been cured or given the all clear after a cancer diagnosis. Everyone diagnosed with cancer needs to make whatever lifestyle changes are appropriate and should remain vigilant. There is no cure and there is no all clear and those celebrities who make such announcements are not doing anyone any favours.

17. Today’s twenty somethings behave more like children than adults. But the age of 26 is a good measuring stick for the young. Orson Welles made Citizen Kane when he was just under 26. Dante wrote La Vita Nova when he was just over 26. Marco Polo arrived in Peking at the age of 26. Leonardo da Vinci was a master painter at 26. Michelangelo created Pieta when he was 26. Shakespeare wrote King Henry VI at 26. Napoleon was in charge of the French Revolution at 26. Alexander began his conquest of the world at 26. And Einstein announced his Theory of Relativity when he was 26.

18. The global economy is being deliberately destroyed by those who promote the Great Reset and who believe in the climate change myth. But what they are promoting is nothing more than old-fashioned communism. The climate change psychos should be honest and admit that they want everyone to be poor, hungry, cold and miserable. It’s called levelling down.

19. Tens of thousands of people from Hong Kong who moved to the UK are being banned from accessing their pension funds as punishment for migrating. Around 90,000 individuals are involved. Pension funds are likely to be an easy target for the globalists. This is, of course, a form of social credit. If you want to know about how social credit will affect you please read `Social Credit: Nightmare on Your Street’. You can purchase a copy via the bookshops on and

20. The majority of those under the age of 35 do not like or approve of democracy.

21. `I looked, and there was a pale green horse. Its rider was named Biden and Zelensky accompanied him. They were given authority over a quarter of the earth, to kill with sword, famine and plague.’ – from the Book of Revelations. (I confess that I have changed two words. Death and Hades became Biden and Zelensky.)
