    "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."

I thought we’d go for a Scottish football reconstruction theme today.

I’ve made it easy because the answers are here too!

On the subject of readers’ emails, these arrived the other day from my good friend Glade Rover who is a kind of international man of mystery. Currently in Limerick, Ireland but resident in Denmark, he took these on his phone (in the freezing fog) on a flying visit to these shores.

Readers’ Emails

First in a series where readers can submit their problems for discussion.

Dear BLFP,

I realise that Julian Assange has many followers and supporters. There have been many debates about Wikileaks over recent days but the general intellectual consensus is that Mr Assange is providing a great service for the common good, he is a sincere and worthy individual and that various governments are conspiring against him.

As such he is no doubt a folk hero.

My problem is that every time I see his pompous, smug, irritating, whiny and obnoxious coupon I immediately want to break all my knuckles before I desist from punching him.

Yours sincerely,

Col. Reggie Mental (Rtd)
