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’ve places to go and people to see later. So there.
6 Guido Fawked – Suckered By Labour Leak The perpetually thirsty Paul Staines and his rabble were told that a speech on Thursday by Mil The Younger would not contain any new policies. This they trumpeted loudly. Even Young Dave was taken in. It was a hoax. The subsequent spin was suitably lame. Another fine mess.
5 Sun’s Pistorius Twitter Trawl Rupe’s downmarket troops at the Sun outdid themselves the morning after South African athlete Oscar Pistorius was arrested after his partner was shot dead. The deceased was splashed over the front page – in a pink bikini – and the hacks followed up by trawling female British athletes' Twitter feeds for reaction. All very creepy.
4 Guido Fawked – A Fraud And A Hypocrite After laying into the deeply subversive Guardian continuously for months, the perpetually thirsty Paul Staines was more than happy for the paper to run a fawning profile of him. Here’s the reality to compare with the spin. Another fine mess, once again.
3 Stalking And Bullying – Some Home Truths The modus operandi of the creepy and obsessive who get off on pursuing and grinding down their targets, while blaming them for the whole business. Some Zelo Street regulars may find a name coming to mind. I couldn’t possibly comment.
2 Gove Fans Sell The Pass Those speaking up for Michael “Oiky” Gove let the cat out of the bag, telling that he was using a supposed charity led by a former colleague to by-pass his own department. The New Schools Network had been bunged half a million notes on Gove’s say-so.
1 Fleet Street Tabloid Clowns Well Foxed This post from last May was popular again last week after the hack behind Fleet Street Fox finally outed herself. Some thought this was worthy of publicity, although anyone who wanted to know already knew.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
