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.





Ho Ho Ho…

No, not a late Santa joke.

Who would have thought that anything could have pushed Nancy Kissel into second place as the subject of Hong Kong gossip?

But then who could have seen the Stanley Ho story coming.  Who, in their right mind would try to rip off old Stan?  This is one serious old fella, with an  ’interesting’ history and an amazing number of  ’connections’ in Hong Kong, Macau and the Mainland.

One can only assume that the family members behind this attempted coup, thought the old boy wouldn’t last much longer and would probably die in Hospital after his stroke.  There is no other sane explanation.  And now Stan da’man, father to assorted children, Husband to 4 wives, will have his revenge, probably in this world and the next.
