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 have winter preparations to do. So there.
6 Poppy Shaming Goes Over The Top ITV presenter Charlene White failed to wear a poppy on set. This precipitated a shed load of abuse, which sadly included much that was not only sexist, but also racist. Bang out of order.
5 Liam Fox – A Contemptible Shit The Tory MP’s attack on the deeply subversive Guardian might have at first looked credible – until you found out that the paper which exposed the corrupt behaviour which led to his downfall was, er, the Guardian.
4 Winter Is Cold No Shock Horror As Winter approaches, the Express weather scare stories appear. And so it came to pass: Nathan Rao told readers that we would see the harshest Winter in living memory. But his main sources have been exposed as shams – not that he’s telling you.
3 Nadine’s Been A Naughty MP Tory MP for Mid Bedfordshire (yes, it’s her again) Nadine Dorries was censured for her refusal to cooperate into a Standards inquiry. She accepted this with her usual good grace – or lack of it.
2 Don’t Menshn The Sinister Development The latest attention-seeking attempt by former Tory MP Louise Mensch blew back on her when the Buzzfeed article she used as evidence also revealed that the cops at Heathrow Airport tried to con David Miranda into crossing the UK Border.
1 There Is No New Guardian Police Probe Tory MPs past and present, along with their media cheerleaders, tried to suggest that Julian Smith’s complaint to the Metropolitan Police had triggered a new investigation into the activities of the deeply subversive Guardian. There had not. Still, try again, eh?
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
