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 more gardening stuff to do later. So there.
6 Tories – Hold The Righteousness Some Thatcher fans were getting rather keen to call out others for drunkenness, and pin instances of well-known paedophiles on the left. Here’s one figure from the recent past who shows they should be careful when going down that road.
5 Don’t Menshn The Hacking Trial Verdict There had to be a truly batshit response from someone prepared to grovel in the service of Rupert Murdoch, and Louise Mensch was that person. Wibble overdrive duly engaged.
4 Press Spins Hacking Trial It was so predictable – out came The Usual Suspects to tell readers that it cost too much, that nobody really got guilty, and didn’t that cast doubt on the CPS’ decision to prosecute? [Clue: no it didn’t]
3 The Blog Complaints Commission Some threatening anonymous letters have arrived on Zelo Street. Can you identify the handwriting, or the franking machine used to apply postage?
2 Cameron Under The Cosh When the Guardian and Daily Mail agree the same line – that the PM showed terrible judgment when appointing and sticking by Andy Coulson – that means trouble.
1 Tories Want To Demolish World’s End Estate – 1 It looked as if Crossrail 2 was being used as cover for “redevelopment” of the Cremorne and World’s End Estates at the west end of the King’s Road in Chelsea.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
