    "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."

Calm Down!


The wee man on the DPRK Newsdesk is now apparently in a state of apoplexy.

In an article headed Nuclear War to Be Conducted on Korean Peninsula he says “The U.S. deputy secretary of Defense flew to south Korea to finally examine the preparations for a nuclear war against the DPRK and openly said that the U.S. military attaches top priority to the second Korean war, giving green light to a nuclear war.”
He continues: (click on image to read)


To be serious for a moment, I wonder at the US manoevres in the area. Whilst the idea of North Korea attacking American bases remains highly unlikely, why on earth are these military excercises taking place when they are obviously going to get the DPRK’s collective dander up?

Or maybe the wee angry guy is right and the USA are spoiling for a fight? They have form in this regard after all…….

  1. “… why on earth are these military excercises taking place …”

    Well, see, here’s the thing: we’ve got these agreements with South Korea.

    • Yes I know Jeni but the current ‘exercises’ do seem a tad provocative.

      PS Nice to put a face to the name.

      • More than usual?

        Sigh. If it were up to me, we wouldn’t be doing any of these damn exercises.

        But also if it were up to me, North Korea’s rulers would spend more time and energy feeding their people, not distracting them with hysterical rants about the tearing down of statues by infidels.
