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 to make use of an excellent fine day later. So there.
6 Top Gear - Murdoch Wants It Pulled The objective of all the knocking copy coming from the Murdoch Sun aimed at new Top Gear co-hosts Chris Evans and Matt Le Blanc was let slip by (thankfully) former Tory MP Louise Mensch.
5 Tory Expenses - The Activist’s Tale One keen Tory activist left a trail of all those free trips, the free food and drink, and those targeted personal leaflets - none of it declared locally.
4 Tory Expenses - Battle Bus Claim Fails The claim that all those Battle Buses were a “national expense”, and did not need to be charged locally, was busted when the expense return for the Gower constituency was made available.
3 Guido Fawked - Don’t Drink And Tweet The perpetually thirsty Paul Staines found that his “They all look alike” snark came back to bite him as he mistook a novelist for a Labour MP - but not because they were both black, you understand.
2 Tory Expenses - The US Contingent A group of Young Republicans was brought over to help out during last year’s General Election campaign. And their cost didn’t get declared locally, either.
1 Tory Expenses - The Letter Bombs All those individually addressed letters, customised, mentioning only the constituency targeted, and absent from local expense returns.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
