Passing Observations 44
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. One person in a village complained about the church bells being rung. And so the bells must not be rung. This over-dramatic response to just one complaint is all part of the Agenda 21 plan to eradicate all traditions and all history. When one person can take control there is no democracy.
2. Having a book banned used to be a good thing for the author because sales rocketed. These days having a book or website or video banned means that no one can read it or watch it.
3. It is said on the internet that I have been banned by the Advertising Standards Authority. This is not true. They did try to ban several of my ads but failed miserably. I paid The Guardian and The Observer newspapers a total of £60,000 and they happily printed full page so-called banned ads for books such as How to Stop Your Doctor Killing You and Food for Thought. The ASA, a private organisation which has been reported to the Office of Fair Trading, has no more power than you do to ban advertisements.
4. During the Brexit campaign, the UK Government said there were three million EU citizens living and working in Britain. Wrong. There were 5.3 million EU citizens in the EU. No wonder the roads are always crowded.
5. The governor of Maryland in the US is said to be paying a $100 bonus to any employee who has the toxic jab. Residents of New Jersey were offered a free beer. A company called Krispy Kreme is said to be offering customers a free glazed donut if they present their vaccination card. How cheaply some people can be bought.
6. A plan to erect statues of pirates Mary Read and Anne Bonny on Burgh Island in Devon was thrown out by the local parish council. Instead of these two, the council want to see a statue of pilchards or a fisherman’s wife. I’d vote for the pilchards. I’d travel a long way to see a statue to pilchards.
7. Nothing is as permanent as a temporary government programme, said Milton Friedman. How true.
8. `I have tried to live my life,’ said John Wayne, `so that my family would love me and my friends respect me. The others can do whatever the hell they please.’
9. The HS2 railway line is one of the most expensive projects in history. At more than £100 billion the railway line will cost twice as much as the International Space Station. The plan is to connect up smart cities for Agenda 21.
10. The furlough scheme is step one on the path to human slavery.
11. When TV producers planned to make a TV series out of my Bilbury books (in which a young doctor takes a job in a village in Devon, England) they decided that the young doctor should be black. I refused this absurd piece of positive discrimination. It would have changed the whole dynamics of the storyline.
12. The difference between what each person receives in public spending and what they pay in tax is £91 in England, £2,543 in Scotland, £4,412 in Wales and £5,118 in Northern Ireland. It is a surprise that more people in England aren’t campaigning for English independence.
13. One of Che Guevera’s grandmothers was Irish – a Mrs Lynch. It comes as something of a delight to realise that Che Guevera was one quarter Irish.
14. The budget for the NHS’s Test and Trace programme in the UK is £37 billion. (It is probably more than that by now since it doubtless rises daily.) That works out at £600 for every man, woman and child in Britain. I’d rather have the £600 please.
15. A company owned by the Chinese Government now owns two British wind farms, and a third of Hinkley Point nuclear power generator and wants to be involved in building two more nuclear plants. The Chinese Government is building Europe’s largest battery storage facility in Wiltshire. Another company with close ties to the Chinese communist party owns EDF’s UK electricity networks and is, therefore, responsible for supplying electricity to London. We have sold our present and our future.
16. Huge tech companies invariably claim to be very `green’ and yet they use huge amounts of fossil fuel and vast quantities of electricity and create products which have limited life span, cannot be repaired and which, within a year or two, end up as waste.
17. The chief executive of vaccine making drug company Johnson and Jonson was paid $29.6 million in 2020. Allegations that there was asbestos in the company’s talcum powder for babies has cost his company $9 billion over the past two years.
18. China’s president recently called for an open world economy that resists intimidation. This is the same country which is famous for persecuting the Uyghur Muslims.
19. Why do so many professional sports players `take the knee’ and claim to support racial equality but agree to perform in countries currently infamous for human rights abuses. Formula 1 is particularly guilty of this particularly nauseating hypocrisy. And why do so many footballers who like to appear to have moral consciences take money to promote junk food products?
20. The UK’s MHRA has received more than 4,000 reports of changes in menstrual activity. The biggest change is heavier than usual bleeding, and women most affected are in their 30s and 40s. The cause is still a mystery. Could it be that the experimental jab is affecting the platelets?
