    "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."

Headline of the Day

I haven’t read the NME (New Musical Express) for many years. When I was a devoted reader, more than 30 years ago, it was the arbiter of the Zeitgeist. It had a great letters page and the legendary cartoon strip the Lone Groover. Imagine my surprise when I spotted this headline on Google’s news page:

mediumThe full article is here.

Apparently, although the information, delivered by AEG Live CEO Randy Philips was allowed to stand as testimony by the judge.

This all brought back memories of the ‘seance’ held by camp old fraudster British medium Derek Acorah. Del got together some gullible nutjobs of Michael’s most devoted fans to hold a question and answer session with the dead king of pop.

I must warn you that this could reduce you to tears……

And if you’d like to see more of Derek’s amazing talent click here

  1. It really is exploitation, and abuse … that fukker should be ashamed of himself.

    I know that some people are of the opinion that these people are so stupid to believe this shite that it’s their own fault for being exploited in this manner, but it’s like watching a blind man being tripped up intentionally by some bastard


  2. I just find his absurd antics hilarious. I do feel sorry for the people he dupes but really you’d have to be weapons grade thick to believe the dog thing and sadly these folk will be duped on a daily basis.

  3. FFS! The only ones who are being exploited are those who watch this shit! Thanks Rab, now I understand why I emmigrated.

  4. Tam emigrated so he could join the Canadians who believe in ‘John of God’…every bit as much a con man as Derek Acorah
