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.





Assaulting Coppers(2)

Yesterday’s post concerned the slapping of a policeman by Amina Mariam Bokhary, niece of Justice Kemal Bokhary, one of the three permanent judges on Hong Kong’s Court of Final Appeal. ¬†Bokhary is the villain of the piece in that you cannot go around slapping coppers

But not every drama needs a good guy and a bad guy, here it seems we have two equally pathetic guys, one an annoying connected bitch; the other an embarrassment to his fellow Police officers, an individiual whose theatrics are worthy of Ronaldo, or perhaps a camp thespian analogy would be more apt!

Slapping copper

We all know the propensity for individuals to ‘act for the camera’ but does this guy have to be so bad at it.

We’d like to think a stern word was had in his ear, but he’s probably still in hospital filling in compensation forms.

Weak and pathetic, sad and contemptible.
