    "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."

Farewell to Paisley

I caught an interview on BBC radio at the weekend in which John Humphreys interviewed Rev Ian Paisley on the occasion of his retiral as a Westminster MP after 40 years. It can be heard here.

One of the most amazing things in the interview is that Paisley claims to have prayed with his deputy Martin McGuinness in 2008 for the latter’s sick mother. Jeeez! they pray to the SAME God? It kind of makes you wonder what all the trouble in Northern Ireland over the last three hundred years or so has been about.
