    "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."

Witch Hunt

Private Eye takes up the theme…….

Ferncake mentioned Ms Brooks in connection with the Salem Witch Trial tonight. I wonder if he had seen this beforehand.

From the shop floor……

My assistant Joe yesterday on the decision by the Scottish government to set a minimum 50p per unit charge on alcohol.

“It just means that some poor wee weans are going to get even less food”


Quote of the day

From friend of the Prime Minister Charlie Brooks (on the arrest of his wife Rebekah on charges of perverting the course of justice)

Mr Brooks, the racehorse trainer spoke first, insisting he would be cleared, but expressing the fear that his wife would never be able to get a fair trial.
He said: “I feel today is an attempt to use me and others as scapegoats with the effect to ratchet up the pressure on my wife who I also believe is the subject of a witch-hunt.”
