Top Six – August 10

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 Daily Mail Lamest Ever Airline ScareWe were plummeting at 500 feet a minute”, readers were told. So the pilot was taking things very gently, then. No drama, no crisis, everyone safe. So no story.

5 Warsi Resignation – Now The Spin The thought that Sayeeda Warsi resigned out of principle could not be allowed to enter. So a number of creative excuses were invented, all of which were total crap.

4 Tim Montgomerie – Over-Promoted Nobody The Gaza crisis has cruelly exposed the bias and cluelessness of someone who has gained his current position by little more than grovelling before Rupert Murdoch.

3 Daily Mail American Apparel Hypocrisy Paul Dacre’s finest went after American Apparel for allegedly using “underage porn” to sell its wares. Not unlike the Mail’s own website, then.

2 Don’t Menshn ISIS Into the Middle East punditry mire waded Louise Mensch, going wrong with her first comment as she smeared an innocent man at an Islamic festival as a paedophile. And didn’t apologise, or withdraw her accusation.

1 Miliband Wreath Row – He Was Set Up Right-wing cheerleaders claimed Mil The Younger had the opportunity to write his own message on a wreath laid at Glasgow’s Cenotaph. That’s not true: the procedure followed at Remembrance Day was changed, and not accidentally.

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