    "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."

So Farewell Then

So farewell then Alistair “Blink” Darling

“I’m very sorry” – that was your catchphrase

And quite apart from the recession, you had much to be very sorry about.

You introduced tougher, some might say draconian, penalties

For those submitting erroneous tax returns

Or claiming for things that that they shouldn’t have

You seemed to think that your penalty for such a “mistake”

Would be a “sorry” and a repaying of what you wrongly claimed

Sadly it looks as if it will be rather more tough, some might say draconian, than that.

EZ Fiddle (BLFP poet in residence)

Here is a link to an aricle by Linda Prestonseven signs you are being lied to

“BLINKING. A person who is lying will blink a lot,as blinking seems to correlate to the amount of mental stress we are under. In a normal conversation where a person is attuned to you, he will blink at roughly the same rate as you, often at moments when you pause in your speech. Be wary of someone who is blinking frantically as they speak with you.”

With that in mind, watch the first 15 seconds of the above video. I counted 16 blinks.
