    "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."

Dennis Rodman

It’s his moment.


Kim Jong Un is no Jack Kennedy. Heck he’s no Dan Quayle!

And Dennis is no Marilyn Monroe!


Something Fishy…..

May be going on in North Korea.

Their official news site hasn’t been updated for five days. Even then, the news was a bit fishy.


Could they be embarking on a Cod War do you think?

I’m not sure if anyone has postulated yet that Kim Jong Un may be a fan of Morrissey?


Kim Jong Un v Christmas

Cabinet Reshuffle – Korean Style

The KCNA have now finally reported on recent events in Pyongyang.

It is no wonder it took them so long to report the news. It goes on for screeds.

Presumably Jang Song Thaek was not a particularly savoury individual, having been involved in the government of  the Mafia/medieval monarchy state for so long.

However, this picture was pretty disturbing when you know the outcome..

Jang Song-thaekThere may be trouble ahead……..

Execution News

I had hoped to bring you the KCNA slant on Kim Jong Un’s uncle’s demise but the English version doesn’t have anything on it yet.

Here was how it was announced on North Korean telly.

There may be trouble ahead…..
