    "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."

The story about Alan Milburn becoming Nick Clegg’s independent advisor on “social mobility” is priceless on so many levels.

First of all, the said advisor can’t take up his role to help the country’s poorest and most disadvantaged children because he’s on holiday in Bali.

People in Britain are “condemned by the circumstances of their birth,” said Nick Clegg, son of a millionaire banker, whilst talking in his role as Deputy Prime Minister, about Milburn’s appointment yesterday.

John Prescott, a former waiter on a cruise ship, accused Milburn of being a “turncoat” and deserting his socialist principles.
