    "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."

Che Guevarize ! powered by Fluctuat.net


Marxed For Life

A TOURIST got into a row after branding Che Guevara a terrorist in a Spanish bar – then woke to find the South American revolutionary tattooed on his arm.


Korean war veteran Joe Roberts dozed off in his electric mobility scooter after the boozy argument with a group of young Spaniards.

But while he was sleeping, they wheeled him into a tattoo parlour and paid for his unwanted body art.

Staunch anticommunist Joe, 75, who served with the Royal Signal Corps, faces paying thousands of pounds for laser surgery.

The trouble started after a session on the Costa del Sol resort of Benalmadena.

Joe, of Dundee, said: "The sangria was flowing as I chatted with a crowd of

Spaniards. They insisted Che Guevara was a hero but when I described him as a terrorist, an argument started."

What happened next remains a mystery to Joe. Unaware his arm had been tattooed, he went back to his hotel.

It was not until the next day when he woke up that his wife noticed his skin


Joe said: "I couldn't believe it. My wife wanted to throttle me. I've got to live with this dreadful tattoo of someone I despise.

"My doctor couldn't stop laughing.

But it's no laughing matter for me."
