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, there’s tidying to do later. So there.
6 This Is Paul Dacre’s Truth, Tell Me Yours The BBC Trust acknowledged that a documentary fronted by John Humphrys had not backed up one if its assertions with relevant statistics. Cue the legendarily foul mouthed editor of the Daily Mail going berserk and ranting uncontrollably for no reason at all.
5 Multiple Personality Spiv Spills Beans Deeply untrustworthy Tory Party chairman Grant “Spiv” Shapps failed to convince his audience to buy another of his dodgy motahs, but did let slip that Lynton Crosby had a hand up his back.
4 So Farewell Then, The Commentator The group blog that deliberately defamed Zelo Street, and therefore brought The Curse Of Zelo down on it, was left desperately seeking money as it sank slowly into the West.
3 Flannelled Fool Race Bait Fail Attempts by the odious Henry Cole, tame gofer to the perpetually thirsty Paul Staines at the Guido Fawkes blog, to pin the “race baiting” label on Laurence Durnan at Political Scrapbook floundered, as Cole failed to understand what he was going on about (no change there, then).
2 Delingpole Scrapes The Misogyny Barrel Back in the Top Six, this post from late January shows how James “saviour of Western civilisation” Delingpole got himself into hot water after a gratuitous and nasty attack on Suzanne Moore.
1 Delingpole Misogyny No Shock Horror Yes folks, it’s Double Del Boy this week, after the self-styled “saviour of Western civilisation” once again opened mouth and inserted boot, this time in an exchange with Labour MP Stella Creasy. Anyone would think that he had a problem with the opposite sex.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
