    "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."

Pratt Appeal

Could the altruistic “National Bullying Helpline” in fact have been registered by a perhaps not so altruistic bunch of parasitical bastards making money out of peoples’ misery legal specialists ?

As for Ms Pratt, could she perhaps be related to the Ms Pratt, the appellant in this case ? Whose conduct was described thus:
” (Ms Pratt) thrust her face into his and screamed “Communicate!” very loudly and directly into his ear. Mr Roberts found this very painful and was profoundly shocked by her conduct.”

Surely not!

I never liked Gordon Brown but my sympathy is increasing for him by the hour.


Bully Broon?

The following quotes are from the Home Page of the National Bullying Helpline website.

DAVID CAMERON MP: “Stamping out bullying in the workplace and elsewhere is a vital objective. Not only can bullying make people’s lives a misery, but it harms business and wider society too. So I congratulate the National Bullying Helpline for its efforts to give practical support to those being bullied, and to make bullying a thing of the past”.

The Rt Hon ANN WIDDECOMBE MP: “I very much hope your project is successful because I think that where genuine bullying is taking place the mental stress can be very serious, and a poisoned atmosphere in a working or learning environment can take all the joy out of each and every day”. November 2009.

Now using your skill and judgment, can you come up with any reason why Mrs Christine Pratt (real name) of the helpline would go public about calls made in confidence to her charity’s helpline relating to the Prime Minister’s office?

I’m mystified.
