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 to fire up the washing machine later. So there.
6 Max Clifford – Max Sentence How the judge in the trial of the great Cliffus Maximus stuck to the old guidelines but still sent him down for eight years.
5 Toby Young’s Right Wing Bias Slip The loathsome Tobes is looking for a third head teacher in three years for his West London Free School. And he calls the education on offer the same thing as his own political orientation – he’s a Tory Party supporter.
4 Max Clifford – Min Subtlety After the sleb publicist got guilty, the reaction was not backward in coming forward.
3 Patrick Mercer – The Curse Of Bloggerheads After the now former Tory MP for Newark resigned, the first to point out his appetite for scoring lots of extra-Parliamentary money was forgotten. It might be useful for at least one other Tory MP not to lose sight of that.
2 Toby Young’s Latest Smokescreen Tobes, not for the first time, wanted us to look over there. Because there was yet more bad news about the much-vaunted Free Schools programme. And it’s still more than a billion notes over budget.
1 Peaches – Murdoch Bang Out Of Order The Times showed how far it had sunk from a former paper of record by speculating on news from the inquest into the death of Peaches Geldof. And even then, they got it wrong.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
