    "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."

You Couldn’t Make It Up!

From the BHA website:

The British Humanist Association has responded to the news that Stephen Green, of Christian Voice, has complained to the Advertising Standards Authority about the Atheist Bus Campaign adverts running on 800 buses across England, Wales and Scotland that were launched this week.

Stephen Green has challenged the adverts on grounds of ‘truthfulness’ and ‘substantiation’, suggesting that there is not ‘a shred of supporting evidence’ that there is probably no god.

Hanne Stinson, BHA Chief Executive, said, ‘I’ve sought advice from some of our key people here, but I’m afraid all I’ve got out of them so far is peals of laughter. I am sure that Stephen Green really does think there is a great deal of evidence for a god (though presumably only the one that he believes in) but I pity the ASA if they are going to be expected to rule on the probability of god’s existence. However, if they do investigate we will be very happy to respond’.

Philosopher and BHA Distinguished Supporter A C Grayling, who published an article yesterday at http://tinyurl.com/a4sx24 on the inclusion of ‘probably’ in the adverts, retorted that there was ample justification for the claim made in the adverts

The Future’s Here.
