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’m catching up after a day out yesterday. So there.
6 Guido Fawked – Wrong On Rail Travel Again The rabble at the Guido Fawkes blog went after Tory MP Daniel Kawczynski for travelling First Class on the train. But all his claims were for less than standard class Anytime fares, so he’s doing nothing wrong. Another fine mess.
5 Leveson Is Served (22) The latest attempt to discredit the still unknown conclusions from the Leveson Inquiry was a character assassination of singer Charlotte Church. But what the Mail called the “devastating letter” was nothing more than an attempt from Ms Church’s former agent to curry favour with the press, and especially the Murdochs.
4 Guido Fawked – Tom Watson Howler The perpetually thirsty Paul Staines and his rabble went after Labour MP Tom Watson, who had asserted that there was a paedophile close to a former Prime Minister. The Fawkes folks said Watson was just recycling stuff from the previous issue of the Sunday Times. But he wasn’t. Another fine mess, once again.
3 Careful With That Axe, Nadine The Tory MP for Mid Bedfordshire – yes, it’s her again – Nadine Dorries was observed merrily blocking any Twitter user who even criticised her. That’s not the best course of action for someone who is paid out of the public purse.
2 Donald Trump – Bald Reality The clown prince of Stateside business was called out by film maker Anthony Baxter after his new golf course in Scotland was shown to despoil the environment and trample over unfortunate locals and their livelihoods. The king of the combover did not come out at all well from You’ve Been Trumped.
1 Osborne – Travel Expenses Revealed Following his exposure as a potential serial blagger of First Class travel on standard class tickets, the Rt Hon Gideon George Oliver Osborne, heir to the Seventeenth Baronet was shown not to have claimed for a single First Class ticket in two years. Enquiries are continuing.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
