    "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’m no Einstein…..

(Thanks Stu)


Misty Morn

There’s been quite a bit of fog in west central Scotland over the weekend. I took these photos whilst out walking with the dog at Overtoun in Dumbarton yesterday morning. Just phone shots.

Crash! Bang! Wallop!

This is the Oban public fireworks display on Sarturday night.

All one minute of it.

Someone pressed the wrong button and all the £6,000 worth of fireworks went off in a ‘oney’ as they say in the highlands.

For Argyll has a rather tongue in cheek take on events.

Paul McSnide?

This is what Paul McBride QC said about the Scottish Conservative Party yesterday

“The MSP group is divided and dysfunctional. Their only policy is to oppose everything and contribute nothing.

“Half the membership wants the party abolished and 87% of the electorate despise them.

“Their naked opportunism regarding the minimum pricing bill and the offensive behaviour bill demonstrates why they will remain unelectable.

“Nothing suggests they have the insight to change and I want nothing to do with them.”

He described the party as “a bunch of unreconstructed morons” in the Sunday Herald and said: “They have replaced one nice woman with one not so very nice woman.”

Using your skill and judgement, try to guess which political party Mr McBride has been a member of for the last two years after flouncing out of the Labour Party?
