Passing Observations 80
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. In the UK the Government has decided that the nation should accept the burblings of the global warming cultists – and is taking us to net zero. This is unnecessary and it is being done at a speed which will lead to millions of deaths from cold and hunger. The `net zero’ absurdity proves that every major decision can and should be challenged by a referendum. Party politicians are terrified of these because they put power into the hands of the people. But that, surely, is as good a reason as any to have them. Switzerland, probably the only truly democratic country in the world, holds regular referenda so that its people can vote whenever important issues are being debated. This system works perfectly well there and Switzerland is now widely acknowledged to be the most democratic country in the world. Political parties do not like referenda and will do everything they can to avoid offering them to the electorate (including reneging on promises as Gordon Brown did). When the people are allowed to vote on important issues they have a nasty habit of providing conclusions which do not suit political parties. Look at what happened when the people were allowed to vote on whether or not to remain in the EU. Good sense prevailed and the people voted against the establishment with its vested interests and pay offs. The trouble is that politicians know that the electorate would never vote for net zero.
2. Some video makers use incredibly sophisticated equipment. We’ve now made 300 videos using an old ipad and a microphone we bought for under £10. And around 15 million views on various platforms.
3. `In the USA a huge medical practice of paediatricians with 30,000 child patients do not vaccinate their patients at all. They have no patients with autism. In the old days such an observation (known as epidemiological research) was regarded as valuable. Today, bizarrely, it is dismissed as irrelevant.’ (Taken from the book `Anyone Who Tells You Vaccines Safe and Effective is Lying’ by Vernon Coleman.)
4. Many years ago I was so incensed by the claims of the drug companies and those keen on vaccines that I issued a challenge. I offered to give $1,000,000 to the first person who produced incontrovertible clinical evidence proving that all vaccines are completely safe and effective. The challenge was spread widely on social media and in print media. No one claimed the $1 million (or even tried to) so we know for sure that when doctors and nurses and drug companies say that vaccines are safe and effective, they are lying.
5. After my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer we both spent a good deal of time researching cancer on the internet. As a result we both still constantly receive advertisements for funeral and cremation services. I would like to thank Google for this. Those who work for Google are among the lowest of the low and worthy only of our utter contempt. I sincerely hope their algorithms wither on the vine of internet corruption.
6. Politicians in Wales are hoping that the country will reach net zero by 2035. I bet any Welsh politician £10,000 they don’t do it without fiddling the figures.
7. Journalists, especially at the BBC, seem to prefer to write themselves into stories these days – and thereby serve up their own versions of the truth. Proper journalism died years ago in mainstream media.
8. Heat pumps are difficult or impossible to fit into old houses. This, I suspect, is part of the Agenda 21 plan to demolish all older homes – and force the inhabitants into high rise tower blocks in city centres. If you think I’m exaggerating then I’m afraid you haven’t been paying attention.
9. Highway Code changes in the UK give pedestrians priority over cyclists and cyclists priority over cars and cars priority over lorries. It seems that cyclists can, when it suits them, ride in the centre of the lane they’re in – thereby creating huge tailbacks of angry motorists. The result will be much anger and many accidents – and many motorists will lose their licences. All this is deliberate, I’m sure. I assume that hedgehogs have priority over everyone. What a wonderful world we now inhabit. I don’t know about you but I shall still prefer to allow precedence to the drivers of large lorries and tank transporters.
10. The Court of Appeal in the UK has effectively ruled that simply being offensive is not, cannot be and should not be an offence. It seems that an errant touch of common sense has wandered, uninvited, into the British justice system. I doubt it will last long.
11. A study published in the European Journal of Epidemiology confirms that increases in covid-19 cases are completely unrelated to levels of vaccination. The study was conducted in 68 countries worldwide. The data shows that areas where many people have been jabbed continue to have significant cases of covid. Indeed, it seems that areas where there is a high percentage of jabbed individuals have more cases of covid-19 per one million people. The conclusion is that the people being jabbed are spreading covid. Here is yet more evidence proving the danger of the covid jabs.
12. The NHS is utterly appalling and unfit for purpose and so doctors will set up private surgeries, either by themselves or together with two or three like-minded practitioners. I have thought that this was inevitable for many decades. With this sort of system doctors can go back to providing 24 hour cover for patients, and back to providing home visits at night, at weekends and on bank holidays. Some practices will simply charge a consultation fee, others will charge an annual fee which will cover surgery visits and a limited number of home visits.
13. In 2021, the European Union tried to remove Christmas from the calendar. They will keep trying.
14. Scientists are now trying to create a vaccine to prevent Alzheimer’s disease. If they read my book entitled `Dementia Myth’ they would know that many patients who have been diagnosed as having Alzheimer’s are suffering from something else and could be cured.
15. The abundance of new laws and rules in the last two years has encouraged a widespread disregard for the law. I wonder if the authorities realised that would happen? The BBC TV licence fee, which most sensible people find a way to avoid paying, is another example of a law which has encouraged law-breaking. Incidentally, be aware that if you don’t pay the BBC licence fee you will join the Threatening Letter of the Month club. I just burn the letters.
16. The recent death of Cornish comedian Jethro reminded me that there hasn’t been a half-decent new comedian around for years. Is this because they are all too afraid to be funny lest someone be offended? Or are they worried that competing with the Fauci-Whitty double act will be too much for them?
17. We have one of the useless EU light bulbs in our pantry. It takes hours to become bright enough to be useful. We turn it on first thing in the morning so that we can see things by late afternoon when it starts to get dark. (The lampshade is difficult to unfasten or I’d change the bulb and throw the EU one away – though of course EU bulbs have to be disposed of by men in asbestos suits because of the mercury they contain. We have no other EU bulbs anywhere in the house.)
18. I wanted to write a spoof novel about Schwab, Agenda 21 and the New World Order. But how do you spoof something that seems like a spoof? (I did write a novel about the EU entitled `Revolt!’.)
19. Am I alone in suspecting that the collapse of English cricket in recent years is part of some dastardly plot to destroy sport, culture and national pride?
20. A hundred years ago hospitals and wards for children were equipped with toys, rocking horses and decorated with flowers. These days many hospitals ban toys and flowers. My new definition of the word `progress’ is `less civilised’.

Vernon Coleman’s latest novel (largely written before March 2020, since when he has been busy with other things) is called Dr Bullock’s Annals. It is the story of a young general practitioner in Victorian times.
