    "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."

£148 million Euromillions winners 2012

£148 million Euromillions winners 2011

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

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


Weir’s Way

I see that Euromillions winners Colin and Chris Weir have donated £1,000,000 to the SNP for use in the forthcoming independence referendum. This comes a month after poet Edwin Morgan left a similar amount in his will to the party.

And of course there was the half million donated by Christian fundamentalist fruitcake respected businessman and moral campaigner, Brian Soutar.

The Nats are in the money and they are clearly riding the crest of the Zeitgeist.

I’m just conscious that donations and investments usually come with terms and conditions….

Son quit job after Dad's lotto lies

The furious son of a hoaxer who convinced a town he'd won the £35.4million Euro lottery has spoken of his anger.

Jordan Frater quit his job after his father Fergus, 46, promised him a £5million share of the jackpot.

Roofer Jordan told The Sun: "I could kill him. I'm absolutely gutted."

"When dad told me he'd won the lottery, I phoned my boss to tell him I was leaving. I've had to get back on the phone and beg for my job back.

"I don't know why dad would have done this to us. We're in shock. We can't get hold of him."

Jobless Frater, who had gone missing last night, also pledged to give his sister Lorraine, 41, £1 million after bragging he had the record-breaking ticket.

Jordan said he and his pregnant girlfriend Lucy Scrivens, 25, started making plans to move to Australia with their young daughter as soon as Frater bragged that he had won the huge jackpot.

He said: "One minute I was a multi-millionaire, the next I was back to having nothing."

Scottish-born Frater vanished from his flat in Littlehampton, West Sussex, after telling his family he was off to claim the money.

Earlier he posed for pictures with a EuroMillions ticket as he downed pints during a pub crawl. His local paper even splashed news of his windfall on its front page.
