    "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."

“One thing I learned on my two visits to North Korea is that this is a cohesive political entity and society”

Is that right George? Whilst this blog would not pretend we have a perfect society here, I wonder whether North Korea would afford you the democratic right to be elected to parliament? And then for you to unerringly take the side of every opponent of the state whether rightly or wrongly?

I don’t think so. They’d be too politically cohesive for that.

And what part of Dundee does that accent come from?

  1. Sorry, Big Rab, I’m 100% with George on this one.

    • I think that in fairness to George, that his political dissent should be dealt with in the way it is in DPRK. “Cohesiveness” is clearly something he approves of, so therefore he wouldn’t mind I’m sure being shot in the street in front of his neighbours and their children. It’s why everyone claps so hard in the presence of the dear leader.

  2. Eh come fae Dundee Rab ev never heard abody speak lik that

  3. Rab, I bow to your superior knowledge as clearly you have been to the DPRK on many occasions and have witnessed the things first hand.

  4. I haven’t witnessed first hand. I have however read many accounts of events in the DPRK, most recently here http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/north-korea-barbaric-regime-revealed-1828378
    I’d suggest that such reports have verisimilitude.

  5. Are you sure it was Millibands wrist that broke…..?

  6. A former boss of mine who had been a member of ‘Militant’ back in the day, said that even they considered George to be a bit of a ‘nutter’

  7. An unprincipled and quite nasty piece of work.
