    "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 Leveson Enquiry

As I have read about the Leveson enquiry into press standards, I have been struck by the complete lack of verisimilitude by the main players.

Most of the ‘evidence’ from whichever corner can be summed up thus:

“It wisnae me! – a big boy did it and ran away!”

It has been a tough competition but perhaps the most economical with the truth so far was Jeremy Hunt whom Wikipedia reports is related to Oswald Mosley and the Queen. The reported fact that he enjoys the Zouk Lambada is certainly more believable than most of his evidence.

And is there really any adult out there who thinks that Gordon Brown didn’t phone Rupert Murdoch threatening the jaggy bunnet on the despicable old fraud for switching his papers’ support from Broonco to Dave and his chums?

Lets have a wee poll:

It’s Eck’s turn to lie tomorrow.


A Pair of Jeremys


Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt could surely pass for a younger Fred Goodwin.

Another Jeremy Hunt

Could it be that Jeremy’s career path is about to follow the same trajectory as Fred’s?

Radio 4 Makes a Jeremy Hunt of it! – Very Naughtie!

First there was this…..

Then, shortly afterwards…..

But then there was this!
