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 some gardening to do later. So there.
6 Tories Press Self Destruct Leadership rumours, splits, policy grumbles, having to depend on the opposition to get legislation through the Commons – and meanwhile, Labour can just order more popcorn.
5 Flight Emergency – Keep Up MSM By the time the papers and broadcasters had noticed the diversion of PIA Flight PK709 from Manchester to Stansted, and its escort by the RAF, some of the more nerdy types already had it figured out.
4 Guido Fawked – Bozier Not Charged The perpetually thirsty Paul Staines and his rabble at the Guido Fawkes blog had been on the case of Luke Bozier, who had been arrested on suspicion of looking for sex with underage girls. But all that happened was that Bozier got a caution, so the Fawkes folks’ sniggering into their screens had got them nowhere. Another fine mess.
3 Woolwich – Flannelled Fool Speaks The odious Henry Cole, chief gofer to Paul Staines at the Guido Fawkes blog, took grave exception to the brutal killing of an off-duty soldier on the streets of Woolwich – initially because it rudely interrupted his siesta. What a selfish clown.
2 Woolwich – Let’s Jump To Conclusions After an off-duty soldier was run down and then killed, the press could have just printed what it knew. But there were so many gaps in the story. So in they all jumped. No surprise there.
1 Platell In Trouble? The Daily Mail’s appalling Glenda Amanda Platell went looking at child pornography as research for an article telling readers how terrible it was. But looking at that kind of thing is illegal, and the Met has since been in touch with the people at Northcliffe House.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
