    "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."

Sabre Rattlin’?

The BBC has a kind of cut out and keep analysis of the developing crisis in the Korean peninsula. I notice that there are several bets being hedged as to the seriousness of the North Koreans’ intentions.

They helpfully publish this diagram of the DPRK’s nuclear reach:


Meanwhile in North Korea, the DPRK news website is going into overdrive with threats and bluster against the west but in particular South Korea and the USA. Here they quote “The Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK)”


And that’s only about half the article!

Elsewhere though, the DPRK media was celebrating International Womens Day:



“I give you a toast – “Women and America!”

  1. Today is 11 March which should be significant if you have been following the war rhetoric.

    Also, and this won’t come as a surprise, the BBC diagram is well out of date. The war mongers on the US Pacific coast are now in range of DPRK missiles.
