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.





Sunday Morning Post

Paul Kokoski wrote in the Sunday Morning Post this morning, “Same-Sex Marriage defies Bible and Science.” Quite why Mr Kokoski, ( yeah, I’m ignoring the obvious abbreviation), should want to write to a Hong Kong Newspaper when he appears to live in Canada, is beyond me, but lets allow that he has a Hong Kong connection.  As previously pointed out elsewhere in this rant, so what if it’s unnatural, it’s no business of anyone else’s, as long: “as they don’t do it in the street and frighten the horses.”  But Kok, goes on to spout his own ideas of science without offering any basis for his argument, I suppose as a christian, he expects us to have faith in his authority and word.

Why does the SCMP keep publishing these letters from reactionary idiots?
