    "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."

Tales of Two Stars

Regular correspondent Claret and Amber sends links to two newspaper clips:


Just to confirm that Mr Lampard has, according to the Daily Star, offered to take a £100,000 per week pay cut to carry on kicking a ball for Chelsea.


If Mr Steward has been quoted correctly by the Morning Star, then he is obviously one of the ‘Bar Stewards’ referred to by Totonto Tam in his last comment!

  1. As the legal representative of Dr. Claret and Amber I wish it to be known publicly that, although my client provided Mr Lomond with the quotation by Mr Lampard, he at no time provided a link to the Daily Star, My client will sue anyone who publicly declares that he would read – or be interested in – said newspaper (sic).

  2. We are of course happy to correct the impression which may or may not have been given insofar as the foregoing text may have….er implied.
    We apologise to Dr Amber for any anguish he may have felt in being unfairly connected with any newspaper or indeed football club.
    The editor has been severely reprimanded to the tune of several slaps across the coupon with a wet fish.
