    "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."

I published this elsewhere earlier in the week and BLFP reader Bobby J sent me this marvellous link from the Glasgow Herald from 13/11/1981


Whilst following Bobby’s link I found this ad:


A sobering thought to consider what a Betamax VCR cost in 1981!


Separated at birth…..

Has anyone noticed this remarkable similarity?

The Scottish Tory leader, Ruth Davidson, said the proposed referendum date was unacceptable

Thanks Jack!

Thanks Jeni for the idea!

Today’s winners report that they are going to “celebrate with a pizza”

I’m just away for a KFC party bucket myself.

Separated at Birth

Not really a lookalike so much as a meeting of minds…..

Mitt Romney

Dan Quayle

As suggested by Denise

Not sure if I can see it myself…..

Hugh Jackman

Bradley Wiggins

As Douglas points out, when the OBE or the knighthood arrives for Wiggins it will surely be for services to facial topiary!
