    "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."

Curioser and Curioser (How they are connected – part 1690)

Click here for an account of more shenanigans involving Craig Whyte.

A judge has ruled that former Rangers owner Craig Whyte gave “false” information to Ticketus regarding his director disqualification.

A 28-page judgement delivered at the Chancery Division of the High Court in London earlier this month found that Whyte had failed to disclose the ban to the firm.

Master Marsh awarded Ticketus £17,683,338 in damages on 5 April 2013.

Incredibly the article ends thus:

Master Marsh, who made the judgement, is a former partner of Collyer Bristow, the law firm who previously acted for Mr Whyte at the time of the Rangers takeover.

Marsh resigned from Collyer Bristow in February 2012 before his appointment as a Master of the High Court Chancery Division from 12 March 2012.

There is no suggestion that Marsh has been directly involved with Whyte and a spokeswoman for the judiciary said: “Master Marsh was a member of Collyer Bristow LLP until 28 February 2012, before he took up his post as Chancery Master. He was aware of a claim against Collyer Bristow and therefore raised his previous connection with Collyer Bristow LLP with the parties at the outset in case in case they felt he should recuse himself. All the parties, including Mr Whyte, were content for the judge to deal with the case. Master Marsh’s former connection with Collyer Bristow LLP has no bearing on the case.”

I have no locus whatsoever on the probity or otherwise of Master Marsh, but surely they could have found a judge with no connection to Whyte or his companies?
