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 got shopping to do later. So there.
6 Littlejohn And Toilet Paranoia The Mail’s tedious and unfunny churnalist tackled his own burning question about transsexuals: how did they take a pee? He gets around a million quid a year for this stuff. Nice work if you can get it.
5 The Telegraph’s Racist Underbelly An apparently innocuous story accompanying Young Dave’s visit to India, asking whether a future Prime Minister could have their roots in the sub-continent, provoked a particularly nasty response from the comments sewer.
4 Gove Polecats – The Net Closes In The Information Commissioner brought bad news for Michael “Oiky” Gove, that he would have to release information about the Free Schools programme. “Oiky’s” excuses were jaw-dropping. And he was on a collision course with 10 Downing Street over the conduct of his advisors.
3 Eastleigh – Tory Campaign Cracking Up As news emerged suggesting that the Tory campaign was faltering, the “unrelentingly positive” campaign was ditched and their candidate became rather less visible.
2 Iain Duncan Smith – Dishonesty In Action The minister who, time and again, has been discovered lying, went to Eastleigh and told Tory activists that they should call their opponents liars. Stay classy, IDS.
1 Gove Polecats – Pants On Fire The Department for Education’s SpAds were caught using the @toryeducation Twitter feed to tell a particularly nasty whopper about children’s author Michael Rosen. Then the account tried to pretend it hadn’t done it. Oh yes it had.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
