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 stuff to do later. So there.
6 HS2 – Isabel’s Hard Reality The Spectator’s Isabel Hardman signalled that the opposition to HS2 may become coordinated under Tory MP Andrew Bridgen. Here’s why that may not, in itself, move the antis forward.

4 Breitbart Clegg Russia Hypocrisy The batshit collective otherwise known as Breitbart London tried to smear Nick Clegg, telling that he worked for a firm that represented Russia. He didn’t, and the Breitbart crowd have their own Russia connection – appearing on Putin-friendly RT.
3 Littlejohn April Fool – You Wish Dicky Windbag wasn’t fooling anyone when he trotted out another barrel-load of porkies about obesity, something of which he has first hand experience.

And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
