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.





Dick of the Day

Dick of the day today, goes to Mr. Robert Shen from Singapore, writing in todays SCMP.  Mr. Chen declares there’s “Far too much freedom in Hong Kong.”  Oh really!  He then reinforces our intitial impression by stating that: “After all, it [The Governement] has been elected to run Hong Kong.” Oh really!

Leaving aside why an individual from the one party state of Singapore should want to comment on Hong Kongs internal affairs, it would at least seem prudent that he should make an effort to find out just what sort of elections can take place here, but hey, don’t let inconvenient facts keep your feet off that soapbox Chen.

As a parting shot he wonders why: They [the protestors] have so much time on their hands.” Perhaps they have decided to fight against nepotism and collusion, to fight for a better future for the next generation and improve the life for everyone in Hong Kong; to take back some power from toadies and big business.  It used to be called ‘principles’ Chen, but I doubt you could spell it.
