Passing Observations 37
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. Privacy is but a memory. In 2020, the taxman in the UK made 18,464 requests to access web browsing histories and telephone records. HMRC can now request data held by phone companies including the number dialled, the time, duration and location of the call. If the taxman wants to know precisely what was said or written it must apply to the courts. Who would trust the courts to say `no’? Many of these inquiries are instigated after sneaking and snitching. Last year in the UK, 73,000 people reported friends, relatives and employees to the tax authorities.
2. The absence of a proper, long-term, clinical trial comparing the health of those vaccinated with those non-vaccinated tells us a great deal. But why not a proper, long-term clinical trial comparing the health of those wearing masks with those not wearing masks? The answer, of course, is that the authorities know damned well what the result will be: mask wearing does more harm than good and the health of those wearing masks will be adversely affected.
3. Complain to your MP about the Online Harms Bill which will require social media sites to take down harmful content or face hefty fines. What is harmful content? Anything which questions the Government.
4. Many who have been working at home for the last year want to carry on in their spare bedroom office. But if a job can be done from a back bedroom in England, France or America it can be done from a back bedroom in the Far East. Not many people are so skilled that their work cannot be done by someone cheaper – and working several thousand miles away. It will soon be the turn of those with highly paid jobs to discover the permanent pain of jobs being offshored.
5. The Archbishop of Canterbury has apologised (at last) for closing churches early last year. Churches should have never been closed. But despite the apology, many places of worship are still shut. The people have been abandoned by the clergy and formal religion will never recover.
6. I fear that we are very close to losing the argument about masks. And if people are stupid enough to wear a mask then they’re stupid enough to have a vaccine. We have to keep blasting away with the truth about masks. Please send the pdf of my mask book `Proof that masks do more harm to good’ to everyone you can think of – including all teachers, doctors and local journalists. It won’t cost you a penny. I’ve had copies printed and I’m busy sending them out in the post. I’d make these available without charge but I can’t think of a way to do this without the pro government shills and trolls claiming so many copies that I go bust. But the pdf of the book is available free on www.vernoncoleman.org and www.vernoncoleman.com
7. The other day I saw someone pick up a discarded mask, lying on the pavement. It had clearly been dropped by someone else. He examined the mask, which was one of the expensive, fancy ones, gave it a brush and then put it in his pocket to wear later. How long before there is a market for used masks on eBay?
8. They are trying to force us to choose between being `safe’ and being `free’ but they have redefined `safe’ as `immortal’.
9. The rich and the well-connected are preparing to leave Britain and many other countries. Rich Britons reckon that Johnson’s totalitarian government has made the UK one of the worst places in the world to live. But where will people go? The uber rich are moving onto super yachts or small, privately owned islands but many are waiting to see which small countries offer freedom and privacy for the future.
10. We had a terrible shopping experience the other day. Cafes wouldn’t even serve takeaway drinks without a credit card. I went into nine coffee shops trying to buy a coffee with cash – and failing. Cash appears to have disappeared. Shops were full of miserable shoppers – most of whom kept their masks in place even when out on the street. The whole experience was joyless and intimidating. I fear thousands will go back to shopping over the internet. And who can blame them.
11. In the UK, the Government has said that plastic visors aren’t acceptable. It’s been obvious to me for months that plastic visors are entirely useless for the Government’s evil purpose – because they cause much less hypoxia and hypercapnia. Thick cloth masks are favoured because they are most likely to cause serious health problems such as bacteria pneumonia and dementia.
12. Trees are being chopped down everywhere (despite the claim that they are essential for getting rid of carbon dioxide). Why is this? Simple. Trees interfere with 5G and must be removed to improve signal strength.
13. One of the reasons for making people wear masks was clearly to stop them talking to one another – especially if they stand six feet apart. I find it difficult to understand what anyone says when they’re wearing a mask and separated from me by a shop counter. The closure of pubs, churches and cafés has, of course, had the same result. (It’s vital to remember that revolutions often begin in cafés and inns.)
14. The four biggest areas of activity for crooks are traditionally: drugs, counterfeit money, slaves and arms (in that order). But I think we must now add a new money-maker: the sale of covid-19 tests and personal protection equipment.
15. Pedestrians unable to take their eyes off their phone screens to look around them are forever causing accidents. Now, Apple has created patented earphones which tap the inside of the wearer’s appropriate ear to tell the phone obsessed to move right or left to avoid colliding into the pedestrian in front of them. The world, it seems, has gone pottier than I thought possible.
16. The global warming cultists who are demanding an end to the use of fossil fuels will create massive poverty, unemployment, starvation and death in developing countries. The Greens will presumably celebrate a victory as millions of children die of hunger and disease.
17. The BBC’s viewing figures fell during 2020’s lockdowns. Even though millions were stuck at home, the BBC failed to provide programmes people wanted to see. Amazon and Netflix cleaned up. The BBC was once again found lacking. If you want to receive a free threatening letter from the BBC’s licence free gestapo every month then don’t pay the licence fee (but you must do it without breaking the law, of course).
18. How many celebrities have been paid to promote the covid-19 vaccines? Taxpayers are entitled to be told how many were paid – and how much they were paid. But taxpayers have very few rights these days and are treated with contempt by politicians.
19. Good to see the UK’s Office for National Statistics confirm that the politicians and the national press have all been wrong about the number of covid-19 deaths. Just as I have been saying for the best part of a year, many of deaths listed as covid-19 deaths weren’t covid-19 deaths at all. The Office for National Statistics reckons that 23% of alleged coronavirus deaths were deaths from something else – people died with it rather than of it. (I think the figure is much higher than 23%.) Maybe broadcasters and print journalists would like to start apologising for all the misreporting, for all the lies and for all the unjustified personal attacks on those of us determined to tell the truth.
20. Those who have chosen to have the covid-19 vaccine are warned that they must still self-isolate if they get covid-19 symptoms. So, let’s get this straight: the vaccine does not stop you getting covid-19, does not stop you spreading it if you get it and does not mean that you don’t have to self-isolate if you do get it. Just why people are queuing up to take this experimental injection is beyond me.
