    "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.

You may not have heard of Kaesong Industrial Park but the video below describes what it is. It is redolent of some of the films I watched about Dubai before I went there last year. The soundtrack, voice over and content are eerily similar. If you want a clue as to why Kaesong’s success is virtually guaranteed, skip to 5 minutes 18 seconds:

Meanwhile, back in the North, here is dear respected leader Kim Jong Un opening The Mansugyo Meat and Fish Shop built on the banks of the Pothong River in Pyongyang.

Not bad, but lets be honest it’s no Farmfoods:

Crikey, you start with one video then another pops up. Here are some North Koreans in a state of spontaneous grief, similar to that outside Pittodrie this week on the news that Craigie Broon was to retire…..
