Passing Observations 123

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. Apparently, a small part of the summer of 2022 was almost as hot as the summer of 1976. I remember how hot it was in 1976 because I had infective hepatitis and ran a fever for most of the summer. I spent July and August sweating in bed. Indeed, even the climate change nutters have admitted that July 2022 was quite a way a down the list for hot summer months in the UK. Those who claim that July 2022 was the driest July since 1911 seem to think this is evidence of global warming. But they’re wrong. It is evidence that there is no global warming because 1911 was drier than 2022.
  2. Civil servants now say that it is clear that the warm weather in July was definitely caused by Brexit. They have no doubt also blamed Brexit for the poor quality of programmes on the BBC, the state of Boris Johnson’s hair and the failure of the buses to run on time. `Everywhere we look we see the dark hand of Brexit,’ said a senior civil servant in the Office of Lies and Misinformation. ‘Things will only get better if we go back into the EU,’ he added, claiming that there is no need for another public vote since electors simply don’t understand things and are in no position to make important decisions about the future of the country.
  3. I know I’m not supposed even to think this, but why do so many people come to live in England and then spend all their time and energy complaining about England and the English? We spent a good deal of time living in France for twenty years, got really pissed off with the French (particular the mayor in Paris), realised we couldn’t change anything, sold our apartment, gave away our furniture and belongings and left. Why don’t immigrants who hate England just go and live somewhere else? Living somewhere just because you like the benefits system seems rather mercenary and superficial. And if someone complains about this paragraph I shall deny I wrote it and claim a hacker broke in and inserted it without my knowledge.
  4. William Morris wisely advised that we should have nothing which is not useful or beautiful in our homes. Those responsible for public buildings take the opposite view. The one thing I know for sure about architecture is that virtually all public buildings, but especially council offices and post offices built since 1950, are ugly, vile and impractical.
  5. The world is insane. I would not be surprised to hear that Victoria Beckham had been appointed Commander in Chief of NATO ground forces.
  6. There aren’t two honest fact checkers in the entire world. Sorry, that was a misprint. It should have read: ‘There isn’t a single honest fact checker in the entire world.’
  7. Politicians in Europe are attacking Putin for cutting (or thinking about cutting) gas supplies. What the hell do they expect? They keep telling us that we are at war with Russia. And they have imposed terrible sanctions on Russia and the Russian people.
  8. ‘Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted in important affairs,’ – Albert Einstein, thinking no doubt of Doris Johnson, surely the most untrustworthy and irresponsible Prime Minister of all time.
  9. The EU’s Liberal Green party has announced that Brexit is to blame for global warming. ‘It was previously thought that polar bears were responsible,’ said a spokesidiot, ‘but we now have proof that the world is now on fire because of Brexit.’ Moreover,the spokesidiot pointed out that the fire cannot be put out because all the water has been used to wash yoghurt cartons.
  10. Women are expected to wear hats in church and men are expected to take off their hats in church. Surely that is two toned double sexism? The Archbishop of Canterbury should resign.
  11. The killing of the elderly started years ago with the murderous Liverpool Care Pathway. And then the United Nations made it easy for governments to kill off citizens over the age of 70. Then DNR notices flourished. Then governments slaughtered the elderly by the thousand with the midazolam murders. Today, in the UK, doctors are legally allowed to kill anyone who cannot look after themselves. If you doubt me, read my article on this website entitled `Have You Been Put on a Death List? The UK government ruling is that anyone who is `mildly frail and may need help with heavy housework, shopping and preparing meals’ can be left to die if they fall seriously ill. Check it out if you don’t believe me.
  12. Our last generation of squirrels ate the lead flashing off the roof. The current generation consists of squirrels who are notably more stupid than their forebears. Is the damage done by lead poisoning hereditary?
  13. If you want to find peace you must prepare for war.
  14. Today, most doctors don’t even know what they don’t know. And that is what makes them unprofessional, irresponsible and deadly.
  15. ‘Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.’ – John Adams
  16. To call a man bald is now officially defined as sexual harassment.
  17. The Bank of England is paying £203,160 to a London consultancy ‘to define the essence of the organisation’. I could tell them for 50 pence.
  18. The woke nutters have realised (at last) that the absurd enthusiasm for biofuels has reduced the amount of land available for the growing food. Anyone with a brain larger than a pea could see that problem the minute biofuels were first thought of. But the woke, climate change nutters have brains smaller than the size of a pea so they didn’t think of it.
  19. The online abuse has become intolerable again. I cannot go on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc., to defend myself because I am completely banned from all social media. I can’t correct my defamatory Wikipedia page (and the accompanying Google page) because I am not allowed to do so. That’s what is meant by ‘freedom of speech’ these days. For the record, I did not put anything about covid, etc., on YouTube after the summer of 2020 when they were banning every new video I recorded. But I left the existing, surviving videos on the channel. Eventually, many months later, the whole channel was summarily banned without any warning. Moreover, I was banned from accessing YouTube. I can’t ever have another channel or, indeed, look at anyone else’s videos on YouTube. I do hope that no one opposing those conspirators who are planning a Great Reset remains loyal to YouTube and continues to put videos on the channel. (I don’t know if they are because YouTube banned me from even looking at YouTube videos.) If there are any doing so then they are clearly not regarded as a threat to the conspirators’ plans. And if any of those criticising the Great Reset are still collecting money on YouTube through monetisation, adverts or via PayPal then I am afraid they are clearly part of the problem not part of the solution.
  20. The world’s billionaires are building bigger and bigger yachts. I wonder why that could be. Is it possible they see riots ahead and want to be safe afloat? One new yacht has five decks and an interior garden with two vegetable patches, and a two tier waterfall swimming pool. One yacht designer said he had designed the interior of a new yacht `to be like the skeleton of a huge whale whose bones give the space its structure and rhythm’. How exciting.

Vernon Coleman’s book Covid-19: The Greatest Hoax in History was banned four times. But it is now available as a paperback and an eBook. If you’d like a copy please go to
