Passing Observations 75
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. `As nightfall does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, here is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such a twilight that we all must be more aware of change in the air – however slight – lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness.’ – Justice William O.Douglas
2. The US spends more money on litigation, after deducting damages, than they spend on research and development for the entire country – including both State and private expenditure.
3. Neither press nor public want references or scientific evidence when Fauci or Whitty speak. But when we speak even our side demand scientific evidence in triplicate. Even then people refuse to accept the evidence if it goes against the promoted lies. Puzzling.
4. Forcing individuals to have an experimental, toxic drug which has now almost certainly caused more deaths and injuries than any other prescription drug in history surely breaks laws in all civilised nations. Where are the lawyers when we need them?
5. `We began with freedom’. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
6. Our problem is that we are constrained by our need to tell the truth whereas the enemy in this war lie as easily as they breathe – and with as little concern.
7. I have been attacked because some of my books are published by the European Medical Journal. Critics seem to think the formal sounding name means that the publisher must be part of the establishment. The truth is that I founded the imprint around 40 years ago when I had trouble finding publishers willing to take the risk of publishing some of my more daring non-fiction books. (They were worried about libel.) I deliberately chose the name so that it sounded rather official – so that the books would be reviewed.
8. The UK currently has the most left wing government in its history. Since there is no discernible difference between the extremes of communism and the extremes of fascism we also have the most right wing government in our history.
9. For investors, value is everything and price is nothing.
10. I believe that oil and gas are the investment of this century. And probably the greatest investment opportunity of all time.
11. A squirrel saw me about to put out a handful of walnuts and hazelnuts. To my surprise he ran off away from me. He returned a minute later with a companion he had clearly gone to fetch. The two of them then helped themselves to nuts. Animals care for each other more often than most people imagine. Crows are particularly likely to care for one another.
12. If you see the words `greener future’ or `sustainability’ you know you are seeing the sign of the devil.
13. Glaxo SmithKline paid out nearly $10 billion in inflation adjusted financial penalties in the USA between 2003 and 2016. It’s worth remembering that England’s Chief Scientific Officer, Sir Patrick Vallance was previously one of the bosses at GSK and is reputed to still hold shares in the company. You couldn’t make it up, could you?
14. The number of deaths and serious injuries associated with it, suggest to me that the PCR test is now the most dangerous and useless test in medical history.
15. Daniel Defoe died on 26th Aporil 1731. The cause of death was `lethargy’. I sympathise. Dealing with the lies and frauds of the last two years has left me suffering from incipient, possibly incurable, chronic lethargy.
16. Nadhim Zakwawi, the UK’s education secretary is reported to have pocked £1.3 million from Gulf Keystone Petroleum while working as an MP between 2015 and 2018. Haven’t British politicians been united in their support for the global warming cult – and the end of fossil fuels?
17. The highest paid university vice chancellor is Alice Gast who was paid £527,000 last year. She is the boss of Imperial College. It would have to be, wouldn’t it?
18. In 2020 more babies were named Lucifer than Graham or Nigel in the UK. Scary.
19. Have you noticed that the sad souls who wear face masks no longer bother to cover their mouths when they cough? I think they really believe that the mask stops the germs being fired out into the atmosphere. These people are too simple-minded to be let out alone. When wandering around outside they should be kept on reins.
20. A friend of Antoinette's died recently, and the instructions were, as they so often are these days, 'flowers from family only'. The offered alternative usually consists of some national charity which will spend two thirds of the money it receives giving huge salaries, fat pensions and absurd expense accounts. Flowers are a wonderful way to express all emotions - inlcuding sadness and, of course, respect. When I go, I want a pile of flowers at least 12 feet high - any less than that and I'll don my haunting shroud and come back to express my displeasure.
