Top Six – May 19

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 washing to put out later. So there.

6 The Anti-EU Propaganda Isn’t Working Despite the avalanche of knocking copy, a new poll showed the percentage of voters wanting out of the EU falling significantly.

5 Mel Gets Her Sex Education Wrong Melanie “not just Barking but halfway to Upminster” Phillips blamed sex education for young people’s behaviour. But she had it the wrong way round – more teenage pregnancies came from ignorance.

4 Daniel Morgan Inquiry – Partly Reported Second week in the Top Six for this post. The Inquiry into the still unsolved killing of Daniel Morgan was announced, but not reported by many of the papers. No surprise there.

3 Telegraph Tolerates Anti-Semitism The bear pit that is Telegraph blogs attracted a number of blatantly anti-Semitic comments which were only removed after I prodded Damian Thompson into action.

2 Crossrail 2 Hijacked By Evening Boris This post from February returned to the Top Six after the Andrew Adonis backed variation on Crossrail 2 went out to consultation. As three months ago, Boris was not leading, but obediently toddling along behind.

1 UKIP – Another Bigot Surfaces Ron Northcott, a UKIP candidate and secondary school teacher from Plymouth, was caught using his Twitter feed to indulge in some particularly nasty remarks about Scots after Nigel “Thirsty” Farage was heckled in Edinburgh. He has now resigned from the party.

And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
