Passing Observations 49

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. I’ve just finished reading a book about Antifa. Disappointingly it didn’t mention the link between Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the Great Reset. Perhaps it is considered unacceptable to discuss these links in public. In my view all left wing organisations seem to be united against civilisation, against freedom, against democracy and against independence.
  2. The value of the UK’s Crown Estates (the queen’s land holdings) increased to £14.4 billion during the last twelve months. Can someone please explain to me why British taxpayers give huge amounts of money every year to the world’s richest woman?
  3. Former British Prime Minister, David Cameron, was paid more than £29,000 a day for the 25 days he worked for collapsed finance company Greensill Company. Cameron has been exposed as the truly unacceptable face of British capitalism.
  4. Southern Water (a British water supplier) has been fined £90 million for deliberately dumping billions of litres of sewage into the sea between 2010 and 2015. The company is apparently still dumping sewage, and is the second worst offender in the UK. The CEO received a bonus of £550,900.
  5. Harry, ex-member of the royal family and publicity shy person, seems to have only one thing to sell: his family. As with all exhibitionists I predict that he will become ever more strident and desperate to obtain the publicity he claims to abhor.
  6. As the NHS continues to collapse (it is certainly not fit for purpose) so the demand for private GPs and private hospitals will boom.
  7. I bought a spare battery for my electric hedge trimmer so that it would run for longer. Unfortunately, I forgot to buy spare batteries for me. I ran out of energy long before the hedge trimmer’s first battery had died.
  8. Selfish people are apparently booking multiple holidays to different countries so that if one country goes out of bounds they can go somewhere else. The same selfish folk are booking several tables at different restaurants. And they’re buying clothes from several online stores, picking one, and returning the rest. I would not like to be running any sort of business these days. (I have also noticed that more and more people are buying books, reading them and then returning them for a refund two weeks later.)
  9. The cricket authorities have invented a new shorter form of cricket. People who don’t like cricket aren’t interested. People who like cricket aren’t interested. What did they expect?
  10. British taxpayers have paid £2 billion for PPE which was of such poor quality that it could not be used for NHS staff. Around 2.1 billion items were rejected. How much of the £2 billion was paid to friends or relatives of government ministers? We will probably never know.
  11. The UK’s Prime Minister and Chancellor have been holding secret meetings with individuals who gave at least £250,000 each to the Conservative Party.
  12. Fuel bills will soar during the winter because of unnecessary (and harmful `global warming’ legislation. The result will be that considerably more than the usual 60,000 will die of the cold in the winter of 2021/2022.
  13. How many NHS staff were aware of the secret plans to withdraw hospital care from elderly patients?
  14. One in four hospital patients who was officially classified as suffering from covid-19 was actually suffering from something else. This must be added to the long list of lies and deceits.
  15. It is reported in the Daily Telegraph that Melinda Gates hired divorce lawyers after the meetings between her husband, Bill Gates, and the convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein became public.
  16. It seems certain that track and trace functions using Google and Apple technology will in future be monetised – to the advantage of the two companies.
  17. Mainstream commentators are claiming that covid-19 passes are as harmless as bus passes and will be only used `temporarily’.
  18. Banks in England are still shutting at 3pm even though other restrictions have been lifted. It seems certain that it is to drive more and more people into internet banking. Cash machines are increasingly being left empty of cash – and therefore useless.
  19. Hotels are using temperature checks on guests before allowing them to enter. This means that if guests arrive and fail a temperature test they will be sent away – even if they have driven 200 miles to the hotel. Temperature tests are, of course, entirely useless.
  20. It is estimated that less than 0.000001% of those who have been vaccinated against covid-19 were fully informed about the dangers of the experimental jab. This seems to me to be a wildly generous estimate.

Vernon Coleman’s latest book is called Endgame: The Hidden Agenda 21. The book explains how we got here, why we got here and where we will end up if the resistance movement doesn’t win the war we are fighting. Endgame is available on Amazon as a paperback and an eBook.
