About McPherson's Rant


McPherson’s Rant is an old Scots Folk Song about a Robin Hood Type Character who was hanged.

There is no connection, unless you count the “rant” part.  The world’s a strange place and sometimes a “rant” at absurdity and unfairness is just what’s required.

Here you can expect to find examples of stupidity, irony and idiocy , especially relating to Hong Kong, and with particular attention to the SCMP, and its’ letters page. A common problem with many blogs is their failure to find something new to say, I find the SCMP, and it’s letters page, provides plenty of ammunition on a daily basis and will reference them frequently. If you have your own letter not getting published, put it on our comments section.






Oh dear, it seems that Politboro speak has finally arrived in Hong Kong!

Today, Che Che Che Tsang Changes, declared that: Protest is not in Hong Kong’s interest and the protestors must reflect.”  Very Politboro! I wonder if he was wearing a red tie at the time.  No doubt he’ll be advocating sending them to a labour camp in the country for this period of reflection, reflection being a well known euphemism for hard labour up North.

On top of a mainland security officer breaking the law by crossing our border illegally and dragging protestors back over, and the deporting of a dissident to China instead of to his country of origin, you’d have to say that the bland bow tie man is acting in Beijing’s interests and most definitely not in ours.

In fact Tsang, protests are in Hong Kong’s interests and you sir are a dupe, a sophist and an arse!
