    "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."

  4. William Hague’s decision to abstain in the UN general assembly vote on recognition of Palestine as a “non-member observer state” unless the Palestinian Authority accepts Israel’s demand for “unconditional negotiations” is shameful.

    It exposes the British government as an accomplice to Israel’s ongoing colonisation of the West Bank and its determination to capture as much Palestinian land as possible.

    Bilateral negotiations mediated by the absurdly pro-Israel US have brought no benefits to the Palestinian people.

    Tel Aviv has used its military might, backed up by the world’s only superpower, to ride roughshod over Palestinian rights, illegally annexe and colonise east Jerusalem and much of the West Bank and to construct a massive apartheid wall on Palestinian land to make life impossible for the indigenous people.

    Israel demands concessions from the Palestinian side before every bout of supposed negotiations but refuses to halt its colonisation programme.

    Its ethnic cleansing in the West Bank is mirrored by similar actions inside Israel itself, where the one-fifth Arab minority is treated as the enemy within to be relocated at whim or threatened with loss of citizenship for rejecting zionism’s oxymoronic “Jewish democratic state.”

    The European Union simply repeats US pro-Israel formulations, especially during the recent Pillar of Cloud military assault on Gaza.

    Faced with the slaughter of dozens of Palestinian non-combatants, including children, the EU and our government repeated the US line of “self-defence” for the occupying power.

    Such hypocrisy has to stop and the unanswerable case for Palestinian statehood accepted.

    Palestinians know that they cannot wait patiently for Israel and the US to get round to respecting international law. They have to depend on the world community.

    Britain ought to be part of that community not an apologist for the aggressor.
