    "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."

Hacks and Hacking

I see from this article that the police are to reopen the case into phone hacking at the News of the World following the suspension of the NotW assistant editor Ian Edmondson.

There are some high profile cases coming up against the News of the World by Steve Coogan, Sienna Miller and George Galloway who all allege that phone tapping was used against them while Andy Coulson (David Cameron’s press officer) was editor of the ‘paper’.

Whilst I doubt the impending Sheridan action will have any impact whatsoever on his sentence in the perjury case, it will be interesting to see if the answers given by Coulson at the (perjury) trial may come back to haunt him in the coming months as they are quoted back to him.

Here’s hoping.
