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.





Seoul Law To Protect Actresses

Did you know Seoul was passing a law to prevent their actresses from being exploited after a survey showed 60% of them were pressured to have sex to further their career?

Ok on the face of it, good idea!  But the casting couch is nothing new, ask Marilyn Monroe, and I’m really not sure how you can enforce it.  However, I would like to see a similar law in Hong Kong, if only to save us from the pathetic talentless pseudo stars that are the “canto pop up tartlets” of today.  It’s common knowledge in this town that the industry is controlled by two companies, who shall remain nameless here in case I fall out a window by accident at some point, or even get stabbed in my hospital bed as happened to one journalist.  These companies don’t have tattoos, but there’s tattoos in the background, and every single wee tartlet from one twin to another and beyond, got where she is today, by not insisting on remaining vertical at her interview!

Such is life.  Sorry Seoul.  The law is unenforcable.  But I wish you every success.  And do you want to borrow some canto pop tartlets?
