    "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."

Apology from the BBC

In a Newsnight programme recently we incorrectly carried an article about a man who made certain insinuations against an unidentified very well known public figure from several decades ago. At the time, the person who made the allegations, a man who had wandered in off the street we thoroughly checked out, positively identified the following man as having attended several party conferences in the 1980s.

We now accept that Gary Glitter was not and never has been a grandee of the Conservative Party and we apologise unreservedly to him and his family for suggesting that he ever was.

We hope that Mr Glitter’s reputation has not been damaged.

We would also like to apologise to the family of the late Jimmy Savile, whom we suggested used his political influence to visit several children’s homes for his own nefarious ends.

Mrs Thatcher accepts a donation to party funds.

The Director General having accepted his punishment of £400,000 in a brown envelope, has resigned.
