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 Guido Fawked – New EU Fan The perpetually thirsty Paul Staines called part of the Queen’s Speech “game changing”, presumably without realising it was actually a transposition of an EU directive. Then his tame gofer, the odious flannelled fool Henry Cole, threw a mardy strop at me for rumbling his boss. Another fine mess.
5 So Farewell Then Alex Ferguson The longest serving manager in the country stepped down. We named the man who nearly replaced him back in 1989, and said his successor was going to be David Moyes. Which it was.
4 Bad Grammar Award – Bad Stitch-Up, More Like The inaugural Bad Grammar Award turned out to be judged by a panel with a two-thirds majority of Michael “Oiky” Gove fans. To no surprise at all, they gave their dubious prize to a piece that, er, criticised “Oiky” Gove. What a surprise.
3 Daniel Morgan Inquiry – Partially Reported An inquiry was announced into the still unsolved killing of private investigator Daniel Morgan, who was about to expose Police corruption. But most of the press failed to report the news – like the Murdoch, Barclay Brothers, Rothermere or Desmond titles. This post tells you why.

1 Gove’s New Polecat Scores Own Goal Stepping in to the breach vacated by the @toryeducation Twitter feed, the loathsome Toby Young attempted to kick former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen for criticising Michael “Oiky” Gove. Sadly, Tobes was picking at Rosen’s grammar from a very draughty glasshouse.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
