So what’s hot, and what’s not, in the past week’s blogging? Here are the six most popular posts on Zelo Street for the past seven days, counting down in reverse order, because, well, I have shopping stuff to do later. So there.6 Sun Savile Hypocrisy Exposed This post from January is back in the Top Six following the publication of Janet Smith’s report. The Sun claimed they had the dirt on Jimmy Savile, but they did nothing. And they kept on doing nothing.
5 Tory Bullying - Sick New Smear Mike Rouse, a close and long-term friend of YBF head man Donal Blaney, has tried to spin the death of activist Elliott Johnson as a way of blaming his parents. And it’s complete claptrap.
4 Karen Danczuk’s Guardian Fantasy Second week on the Top Six for this post. For reasons best known to herself, the Guardian’s Zoe Williams allowed Kazza to make a number of highly creative claims in an interview that was short of a fact check.
3 Danczuk Cashed In On Sexting Disgrace Rochdale’s nominally Labour MP had a £2.7k payday from a photo exclusive - and it looks like it was the one that accompanied his exposure by the Sun for “sexting” a 17 year old girl.
2 Idiot Almost Provokes Train Strike A DfT manager made a series of highly inflammatory statements to a meeting in Croydon recently about what train drivers earn, the hours they put in, and what he was going to do to them. He later issued an apology.
1 Jimmy Savile - Sun Hypocrisy After Janet Smith’s report was published, the Sun claimed that, if only they had been listened to in 1983, all would have been well. Except that they didn’t listen either, giving Savile a gushing eulogy when he died - and more.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
