    "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."

North Korean News

I had always thought that the unicorn was a Scottish creature.

Exhibit A, the Royal Coat of Arms of Scotland:

However, I may now have to revise my thinking.

As regular readers will know, I like to keep up with events in the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea via their news agency. Unfortunately, last week whilst I was away I missed what is surely the biggest story reported since Kim Jong Il recorded a 38 under par golf score for one round which included eleven holes in one.

What was this remarkable story?

No amount of embellishment could improve on the way it was reported:

If there were to be any doubt cast on the veracity of this story then I hope the fact that “A rectangular rock carved with words “Unicorn Lair” stands in front of the lair” will dispel any such misgivings.

I wonder if any readers can tell me if Sinjungdonggukyojisungnam is available on Kindle?
