    "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."

Health and Safety Gone F****** Mad!

Thanks to Alastair for this. It seems to chime with some of the discussion here in the last few days.


Society – There Is Such a Thing After All!

Having upset all my Labour supporting friends in recent days and weeks, now its the Tories’ turn (Graeme, Fleet and maybe Richard) I’ve had a look at The Tory Blog and find that the most important thing on David Cameron’s agenda is to ‘repair our society’

Whilst it is heartening to note that the Conservatives now acknowledge the existence such a thing as society (One of Margaret Thatcher’s most notable quotes was that ‘there is no such thing as society’) have a wee look round the site and ask yourself if concern about society and the health service has the ring of truth.

I say no and if anyone is harbouring thoughts of voting for them, watch the Ian Wright video, or indeed the David Cameron one.
