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 shops to visit later. So there.
6 Guido Fawked – Alex Wickham Outed A return to the Top Six for this post from August 2012. The perpetually thirsty Paul Staines and his tame gofer, the odious flannelled fool Henry Cole at the Guido Fawkes blog, intended to use their newly anointed teaboy Alex Wickham to garner information from those who might not immediately recognise him. Not for long, chaps. Another fine mess.
5 Leaves On The Line – A Cautionary Tale The press love to snipe at the idea of “leaves of the line” delaying trains. But this is a potentially lethal problem, as a serious accident from a part of the world normally unaffected by it shows.
4 Dacre Blames Hacked Off For McAlpine Death The desperation of the Daily Mail’s legendarily foul mouthed editor knows no bounds.
3 Gove Polecats Let Agenda Slip The @toryeducation Twitter feed let the cat out of the bag: abolish Ofsted, remove any Parliamentary accountability, total voucherisation, and money thrown at whoever fancies a slice of the action.
2 Paul Flowers – Daily Mail Hoaxes Itself The Mail gleefully printed details from a Twitter feed that they thought was run by disgraced former head of the Co-Op bank Paul Flowers. It wasn’t. But they wanted to believe it.
1 Mann v Steyn – Delingpole Silent Mark Steyn’s latest attempt to get Michael Mann’s defamation case thrown out failed. But James “saviour of Western civilisation” Delingpole, who had been so vocal in Steyn’s support, was silent.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
