    "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."

Great News!

I see the Mail has returned to its favourite theme this morning.

FireShot Screen Capture #036 - 'House prices hit record high for April (___and for once London was the only place where they went down) I Mail Online' - www_dailymail_co_uk_news_article-2309174_House-prices-hit-record-

This is of course fantastic news for the economy. Just think of the amount of houses we make and export……..

No, wait………

How to alienate one’s readership?

Rejoice! (2)

Checking Google News this morning for the scoop on the killing of Osama Bin Laden, I noticed that three of the top four stories were on how the event had impacted on the financial markets.

I haven’t seen the Daily Mail today yet – Here’s how I imagine it:

All Medical Experts Now

As the Telegraph, Mail et al don their deep sea diving gear to see which new depths they can now plumb, Tory windbag Bill Aitken calls into question the medical prognosis on Megrahi. The Telegraph has wheeled out a doctor to say that like Gordon Broon, Megrahi could well survive beyond three months.

The doctor of course has never examined Megrahi.

How long before the headline ‘Megrahi release could affect housing market recovery’?

I wouldn’t totally discount it.

Seriously.
