    "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."

  1. Radical changes I hear. Young ‘un ordered hot coffee to be given to those standing in the snow! A radical change of thought there.

  2. Fairytaile?????????

  3. I return to an earlier theme….

    Can someone tell me the difference between a group of wildly weeping stooges ‘taking part’ in a mass rally in Pyonyang which is an insult our collective intelligence, and another group of wildly cheering stooges ‘taking part’ in a recent mass rally at a military base in North Carolina, USA, which was probaly even more of an insult to our collective intelligence ?

  4. Ferncake, I don’t know if you saw my piece abut the Iraq withdrawal ceremony in Iraq recently but it is here https://bigrab.wordpress.com/2011/12/16/weapons-of-mass-deception/

    I have developed a theme on the blog, not to deride the North Koreans but to highlight their government’s bizarre ‘news agency’ -My first post on that was nearly three years ago https://bigrab.wordpress.com/2009/02/06/meanwhile-in-north-korea/ and sought to examine the unsophisticated absurdity of their propaganda in a fairly light hearted way.

    I think the above lookalike could be taken several ways too.

    Unfortunately the DPRK news site only archives to 1997 but it apparently reported in 1994 that in his first and only game of golf Kim Jong Il scored 34 (38 under par) including eleven holes in one – witnessed by 17 security guards http://www.abc.net.au/news/2011-12-20/golf-world-mourns-kim-jong-il/3739452

    Other propaganda is available of course and I have had a go at that too – but in context.
