    "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."

Pasta Joke

The Italian Election I’m talking about.

This is Beppe Grillo


He’s leading the anti politics, anti Euro Five Star Movement. He is a stand up comedian.

Talking of comedians Silvio Berlusconi despite international ridicule still has popular support in Italy but not from these protesters who interrupted a Berlusconi rally at the weekend.



The women had ‘Basta Berlusconi’ displayed, ahem, prominently on their persons. On seeing the pics, I thought ‘fair
enough, Berlusconi is a bit of a basta’. Then I found out that the translation is in fact “Enough with Berlusconi”.

Whatever the outcome of the Election of the Eurozone’s third biggest economy, it’ll really do nothing to help anyone.

Just another step, albeit a highly significant one, in the inevitable eventual disintegration of the Eurozone and the European Union.

As Martin Luther King said: ‘We have to repent not merely for the hateful words of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.’ We want to stir the consciences of all those hitherto indifferent.” AC Milan director Barbara Berlusconi – daughter of racism campaigner Silvio.
