Top Six – September 14

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 food preparation stuff to do later. So there.
6 Rupert Murdoch – Stay Off Twitter Rupe wasn’t making too much sense – but it seems no-one can wrestle control of the Twitter feed from him.

5 Murdoch Gets His Doggies In Line The man whose empire brought us Phonehackgate was now getting his obedient hacks on-message in the run-up to the Scottish independence referendum.

4 Toby Young’s School Employs Right Wing Author Tobes’ Free School now has a genuine think-tanker on its staff. What parents are going to make of that will prove rather interesting.

3 The Curse Of Gove All those Free School proposals he encouraged with hand-crafted additions to the acceptance letters – and which had problems afterwards.

2 Don’t Menshn Child Sex Abuse Off she went again – Louise Mensch made a number of creative accusations against Nafir Afzal of the CPS. All were wrong and potentially actionable.

1 Murdoch Meddles In Scotland Poll Rupe decided to stick his bugle into the referendum campaign in Scotland. Why? Alex Salmond had offered to support the BSkyB bid, and Young Dave had dropped Rebekah Brooks like a hot potato.

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