    "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."

Patrick Rolink

Nice piece in the Sunday Herald this morning by Michael Grant about my friend Patrick Rolink
and his work as commercial man at Albion Rovers as well as the voluntary work he does in schools and the community.

The article (read in full by clicking on Pat’s name above) ends thus:
“I think I have found my level as a working comedian. I don’t think I’m going to be famous. I don’t think I’m going to be on the telly. I’m not really TV’s bag. I got through to the national final of Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny?’ three or four years ago and Stephen K Amos was the compere. He asked the audience who had won and they all said me, but the judges didn’t. Later I asked someone from Channel 4 about it and they said you could never have won, you’re not our bag’.”

What do Channel 4 know? To borrow a term heard in Rolink’s act or at any Rovers game: they’re bawbags.
