    "Great read every day. Makes me smile as Rab muses about music and his irreverent views on the EU. Tune in, you won't be disappointed."

    "Excellent 'Blog' which can be controversial at times, while maintaining it's humour. Keep it up Big Rab!"

    "Updated every day with doses of good humour, political satire, a running commentary on the progress of author's home football team and his life."

    "Pure brilliant, so it is - I never miss it, though God knows, I've tried."

    "An inspiration to start my own blog"

    "For dipping into it's better than pakora sauce"

    "Anyone who doesn't like the EU and has a soft spot for Albion Rovers can't be all bad"

    "Facile and False"

    "Populist,puerile and prosaic"

    "Utter pish! Keep it up, I love it!"

    "People may also find the Ben Lomond Free Press blog illuminating, interesting and/or amusing. It’s not mentalist as such but familiar themes emerge. I particularly like accounts of encounters with strange elementals (of course! ELEmentals!) from elfin safety. And the fact that the blog is run by someone who plays in a blues band called Harmonica Lewinsky."

Only in Glasgow – Local Hero John Smeaton

I'm indebted to my pal and fellow Sons fan Alan Findlay for directing me to the following Blog. John Smeaton is the baggage handler who challenged the terrorists at Glasgow Airport on Saturday. The Blog has been set up by an admirer of John's have a go style. There is an online appeal where you can pledge to buy him a pint. Unlike many of the jokes that have been circulating the west of Scotland today, this blog is genuinely funny.

"Those hapless al-Qaeda boys were to find out that Glasgow has no respect for international terrorism. Nobody gets between 10,000 Weegies and a £99 week in Ibiza booked on Thursday night through Barrhead Travel."

There is of course a very serious side to this. John was a hero in tackling these lunatics whilst almost everyone else was running away. Many of his friends and work colleagues have weighed in with their admiration.
