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 go out later. So there.
6 Uber And Black Cabs – Someone May Not Get It The IoD’s Christian May generated lots of soundbites on the ruckus in London over TfL’s hand-wringing. But he failed totally to get to the point – we’re not comparing like with like, and there is a tendency to turn it into a left versus right scrap, which it isn’t.
5 Gilligan Goes Guardian Bashing The Telegraph’s chief seeker out of Scary Muslims found a way to offload responsibility for his own lousy journalism – dump it on the hated Guardian.
4 Fraser Nelson – Bang Out Of Order The flagrantly Islamophobic front cover of the Spectator, using Douglas Murray, a known bigot, to write the supporting article, was no more than trolling for sales. That’s not good enough.
3 Sarah Vain And Bitter With It The pundit otherwise known as Mrs Michael “Oiky” Gove whined long and loud about Stones front man Mick Jagger. Because he’s been seen with a younger woman. It was the same rant as she had at Hugh Grant, except for the odd detail.
2 Nadine’s Latest Liverpool Whopper Not one to let a Labour bashing opportunity pass her by, Mid Bedfordshire’s Tory MP (yes, it’s her again) Nadine Dorries span a story about Liverpool Council and public benches. And it was another pack of lies, so no surprise there, then.
1 Gove Saved By His Own ... Book The “Trojan Horse” plot – the plot that wasn’t – was prophesised in a book by ... Michael Gove! Yes, just when he looked washed up, along came an opportunity to crack down and be a very wonderful Minister. What a fortunate coincidence. Or maybe not.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
