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 the washing to put out later. So there.
6 Bad Hair Pundit Loses It Damian Thompson, clueless pundit of no fixed hair appointment, refused to drop his snarking at Jonathan Portes of NIESR. So here’s a few factual nuggets about the whole thing.
5 Laurie Penny – Flannelled Fool Confesses Ms Penny’s new book gave us an interesting insight into the behaviour of the right-wing blogosphere. And the behaviour she describes is particularly unpleasant.
4 Don’t Menshn Sainsbury’s A Sainsbury’s store in London, faced with an anti-Israel protest outside, temporarily took its kosher produce off the shelves, but put it all back later in the day. Cue righteous and totally pointless ranting from Louise Mensch.
3 Gazza And A Sun U-Turn The Super Soaraway Currant Bun was going to tell readers that Paul Gascoigne was about to make a comeback. That was, until the Mirror found he’d fallen off the wagon again. So it went with the pack and exploited the unfortunate Gazza to flog a few more papers.
