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. ┬áThe 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.





What have the Romans ever done for us?

In Hong Kong, the constant bleating of anti-colonialism can be quite boring. If you substitute ‘Britain’ for ‘Romans’ each time ‘Romans’ is mentioned in the following clip, at least you can get an updated laugh out of an old Monty Python classic sketch

Monty Python

Education: tick, Opportunity: tick, Rule of Law: tick, Infrastructure: tick. I could go on and on, but what’s the point, have a laugh anyway.
