    "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."

Gobbledygook

This is a re-post from January 2008, inspired by reading this article from the Guardian.

Gobbledygook

It’s a wonderful word isn’t it? Readers may remember a previous post  where I quoted a delegate at a seminar I was attending that day “There needs to be a process where we engage agencies and stakeholders in a holistic approach requiring a place-shaping delivery agenda which aspires towards the most mutually acceptable local outcome”. Well folks I have made an amazing discovery. All this jargon it would seem emanates from a website called bullshit generator – what fun can be had there. Simply click a button and hey presto! some meaningless modern phrase appears before your very eyes!

I had a few clicks and came up with:

“expedite one-to-one solution delivery monetize cross-platform infrastructures evolve holistic partnerships”

It really is quite scary but I have a feeling that each report and document produced by every public body from the local council to the EU has been put together by reference to this site

or should I say……

Could it be that by a mission critical interactive process, agencies and facilitators are availing themselves of the evident cross-media delivery, seamlessly strategised in a robust proactive manner by this intuitive provider ?
