    "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."

Another Planet

I see that Rick Santorum has quit the race to be the Republican candidate for the US presidential election leaving the path clear for Mit Romney.

Rick of course is a bit of a space cadet. However I can’t be the only one to worry slightly that the possible future president of the USA believes that God sits on a throne on the planet Kolob.


? for President?

This blog hasn't strayed too often into politics but I got an interesting link in an email this morning. It is a survey which takes a few minutes and then tells you which candidates in the USA presidential race most closely represent your views. To take part simply Click Here 

Not being a USA citizen, I don't have the most comprehensive grasp of the issues so I filled it in to the best of my knowledge and belief and ended up with the following list:


38 Kucinich
28 Obama
28 Clinton
28 Edwards
26 Biden
26 Gravel
26 Dodd
21 Richardson
11 Paul
-5 McCain
-8 T. Thompson
-11 Cox
-14 Brownback
-23 Giuliani
-26 Huckabee
-30 Tancredo
-32 Romney
-37 Hunter


Please report back and let me know how you get on.
