    "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."

Bush Does It Again!

NELSON Mandela yesterday assured the world that, contrary to the impression given by the President of the US, reports of his demise were greatly exaggerated.

Even for blunder-prone George Bush, it was a gaffe of toe-curling proportions.

Defending his stand on the war, Mr Bush said Saddam Hussein’s brutality made it impossible for a unifying leader to emerge to halt civil warfare that has torn Iraq apart.

“I heard somebody say, ‘Where’s Mandela?’,” Mr Bush said. “Well, Mandela’s dead because Saddam Hussein killed all the Mandelas.”

The South African authorities were besieged with calls after Mr Bush’s speech, which was carried live on TV. Many viewers feared the country’s first black president and Nobel Peace Prize winner had died.

  1. Oh no !!As you say, even for George Bush this is way off the scale of embarrassment.If the Americans aren't ashamed of him then they should be ashamed of themselves.

  2. Speaking as a white middle class American male in his 30s, I am more than ashamed of our president. He's a disgrace, a criminal and a menace to humanity. This is in no way an exaggeration. I feel strongly that he should be executed and many many of my fellow Americans agree. Unfortunately all we can hope for is a return to the bland impotency of Democratic leadership in 2008. A part of me wished that things would have gotten bad enough here these past few years that something resembling an American revolution would have occured so we could burn it all down and possibly rebuild it a bit better. But in order for that to our people would have to have blood in their veins. We don't. As long as we're kept fat and stupid by cheap fast food and video games, our leadership can get away with murder.

  3. Joe I think many people, not just Americans share your frustration at Bush and his policies. However I don't think executions or revolutions are necessary for change to take place in the USA.
    It would seem that more and more Americans are waking up to what's happening and that can only be good.
    Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog and sharing your views.
