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’m supposed to be sightseeing, like right now. So there.
6 Gove Polecats Get Twigged The @toryeducation Twitter feed was fired up once more, to rebut a speech made by Labour’s education man. But it was just the same old abuse, plus whoever was running it couldn’t tell the difference between a play and a novel. Must try harder.
5 Saatchi Pleads Guilty Charles Saatchi was given the opportunity by the Standard to talk about the incriminating looking photos of him holding wife Nigella Lawson by the neck. He duly put foot in mouth and admitted assaulting her.
4 Murdoch Is Served (95) The first Stateside hacking case kicked off. And here are some more potential litigants – ready and waiting.
3 TPA – Rail Hypocrisy The so-called Taxpayers’ Alliance was suddenly in favour of new rail links – because a private company wanted to build them. So all the nit-picking and objection that they had marshalled against HS2 vanished.
2 Obama Defeats Chauncey Terminally stupid pundit Nile “Chauncey” Gardiner failed to do his homework and asserted that JFK gave his “Ich Bin Ein Berliner” speech at the Brandenburg Gate. He could not possibly have done – because that location was on the other side of the wall in 1963, in East Berlin.
1 Saatchi – Pundit Foot In Mouth Routine idiocy from Richard Littlejohn and Cristina Odone as they told their readers how Charles Saatchi holding his wife by the neck was not really important, and for the couple to sort out, which was then overtaken by Saatchi owning up and accepting a Police caution. Deadlines, eh?
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
