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 shopping to do later. So there.
6 Don’t Menshn James Dyson Into the EU vacuum cleaner row waded Louise Mensch, claiming that British cleaners would be banned and giving Dyson as an example.

5 Rotherham Abuse Scandal – Press Hypocrisy As the Fourth Estate howled long and loud about the scale of Child Sexual Exploitation uncovered in the South Yorkshire town of Rotherham, none of the ranting pundits were asking the obvious question: if it had gone on so long, why hadn’t they covered it?
4 Mail Labour Dirty Tricks Exposed Veteran MP Austin Mitchell might have thought he was using the Mail to make a point, but one never uses the Mail without the Mail using one in rather greater measure.
3 Mel Calls Jewish Leaders Stupid The Board of Deputies of British Jews issued a joint statement on Israel and Palestine with the Muslim Council of Britain. This gesture of peace and reconciliation was too much for Melanie “not just Barking but halfway to Upminster” Phillips.
2 Don’t Menshn Rotherham Bringing a voice of calm moderation from a reassuringly expensive part of Manhattan, Louise Menshn declared that what happened in Rotherham was perpetrated by “Muslim extremists” and was a “religious hate crime”. Remember, someone let her become an MP.

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