    "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."

It’s not Lord Haw Haw………

He declared that Hitler was indeed a great man and wrote an article about him in the Daily Express (in 1936) headed ‘The George Washington of Germany’, in which he said that: ‘The idea of a Germany intimidating Europe with a threat that its irresistible army might march across frontiers forms no part in the new vision’, and that ‘the Germans have definitely made up their minds never to quarrel with us again’.

He tried to explain away the concentration camps, he declared Mein Kampf to be Germany’s Magna Carta; and even after the declaration of war, in November 1939, he had to be dissuaded from sending Hitler a letter of congratulation following the Fuhrer’s fortuitous escape from an assassination attempt.

These comments were made by a prominent British politician of the time. Remembering that George Galloway wasn’t around back then, who do you think it was?
