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 a flight to catch later. So there.
6 Harry Cole Dobs In One Of His Own After a Tory aide linked to the “Conservative Madrasa” was accused of rape on Parliamentary premises, the Sun’s alleged “Westminster Correspondent” had to report on it.
5 Dan Hodges Danczuk Howler The not even slightly celebrated blues artiste Whinging Dan Hodges was sold a pup by someone promoting Rochdale’s still nominally Labour MP. But suggesting Danczuk would win election as an independent is beyond fantasy.
4 UKIP Death Spiral Confirmed The party formerly led by Nigel “Thirsty” Farage is skint, those wanting to lead it are worse than a freak show, and its ratings are plummeting. Just rejoice at that news.
3 Sun Lineker Diversion BUSTED As Mazher Mahmood gets sent down for lying in the Tulisa trial, the Murdoch press urges its readers to look over there at Gary Lineker.
2 Sun Lineker Smear Busted Back on the Top Six is this post from January. The Murdoch goons invented a split between Gary Lineker and his brother Wayne over the former footballer’s separation from wife Michelle. No surprise there, then.
1 Sun Child Refugee Claim BUSTED The Murdoch droids put a man on their front page without bothering to find out who he was - but called him a “migrant” anyway.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
