    "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."

Easing Ended

Was it really nearly a year ago when I first wrote about quantitative easing? Basically the Bank of England created money electronically and bought difficult investments in various financial institutions so that they would use the money to lend to clients and get the economy moving again. It seems many of them didn’t do that and instead “banked” it.

Quel surprise.

The initiative ends today.

We won’t notice.

What You’ll Hear Later

” I will co-operate fully with the police investigation. It is my sincere belief that I did nothing wrong and I endeavoured at all times to act within the rules. If by oversight I did contravene any rules then I am very, very sorry.”
