    "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."

The Old Ones Are The Best!


Sons Future Secured.

A pat on the back is due to my good friend Gilbert Lawrie who has, along with the board at Dumbarton F.C., secured the future of the club by buying the majority shareholding from Neil Rankine. The full story is HERE .

This has been a long slog and may present the oportunity for community ownership of the club.

This Is Me!

Thanks to Martin who is fast turning in to my researcher! This is fantastic! If you are over 45 it will strike a chord! Can anyone identify the singer?

Public Information 1973 Style

Kelvin McKenzie

Any Scot who missed Question Time on BBC 1 last night should follow THIS LINK and click to view. Go to 36 minutes

 and 30 seconds in to hear a man who bears a Christian name which is the name of a river in Glasgow, and a surname which is as Scottish as Irn Bru and stovies. You could be forgiven for thinking that he was auditioning for a role in a new stage production of "Till Death Us Do Part" or perhaps that this was a a taxi driver appearing on the panel as a novelty.

No, this is a guy is the former editor of the most read newspaper in the UK and one for which he still writes a column (albeit not in the Scottish edition). A proportion of the Cheltenham audience applauded McKenzie but many booed and called out "shame". The man in a despicable, mean spirited, fascist,racist ignoramus.

CLICK HERE for the BBC Complaints Department.







Please note the positioning of McKenzie to the right of Garnett is deliberate!
