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 domestic moving stuff to do later. So there.
6 Paedophile Smear Falls Flat The Daily Mail’s guilt-by-association attack on three senior Labour Party figures began to peter out as nobody else joined in. So they blamed the BBC. What a surprise – not.
5 So Farewell Then Trending Central The group blog started last summer by Raheem “call me Ray” Kassam did not even reach its first birthday as its founder took the Breitbart shilling.
4 Dan, Dan The Paranoid Man Daniel Hannan declared that this year’s Euro Elections would be electing a federal Government. They will not. But he’s still frightened of it, even if it isn’t there.
3 Paedophile Smear Not A Good Idea The Daily Mail’s attack on Labour may not have considered what might happen if the continued references to Jimmy Savile start to drag in other parties – especially the Tories.
2 Breitbart London Brings Comedy Gold Launched last week, the London site bearing the name of the late Andrew Breitbart also brought unintentional humour, headed as it was by more recycled ranting by James “saviour of Western civilisation” Delingpole. He’s their star turn. So the bar is being set rather low.
1 Dacre Orders Labour Takeaway The Mail’s legendarily foul mouthed editor dredged up a story from the 1980s as he tried to link three senior Labour figures to a paedophile group which was once affiliated to the National Council for Civil Liberties – before it was thrown out and its principles convicted. Why do this? Paul Dacre has the iron belief that he can stop Labour winning next year. So more to come.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
