    "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."

The latest load of old tosh from the Referendum debate….

It’s the turn of Vince ‘Cable and Wireless’ to stick his misinformed oar in this week. Scare stories about the quality of broadband, mail delivery and the like post independence really are an insult to the intelligence. However as part of the same scare came the following.

A briefing note circulated by Number 10 stated: “People from one country using their handset in the other could incur international roaming charges when travelling. Calls on both sides of the Border could inadvertently incur international roaming charges if their mobile phone connected to a mast on the other side of the border.”

As any fule kno the European Commission is phasing out such charges for voice calls, texts and internet access, and has already cut them by 75% since 2007. Two weeks ago, commissioners voted to end the charges completely as soon as July 2014 to help create a single European telecoms market.
