Top Six - January 25

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 IPSO Not Independent - Says IPSO Alan Moses confessed, and then pretended that his supposedly new and independent press regulator would be Leveson compliant by the summer. Pull the other one.
5 Dylan Sharpe - Creep And Hypocrite The Sun’s head of PR sent women unsolicited nude photos, because it was just a bit of banter. Then he pretended he’d apologised. But he hadn’t. What a maggot.
4 Flannelled Fool Slimming Coach Revealed The odious Henry Cole, tame gofer to the perpetually thirsty Paul Staines at the Guido Fawkes blog, has a good reason for his recent slimming regime - a steady girlfriend (most of the hits for this post came after Cole kicked off at me, making legel threats. So thanks for that, Hen).
3 Fake Sheikh Boxed In Mazher Mahmood, aka the Fake Sheikh, now has former world boxing champ Herbie Hide on his case. With one Mark Lewis looking at a civil damages claim, in addition to efforts to have his conviction overturned.
2 Guido Fawked - IPSO Fantasy Busted The Great Guido was all too ready to use allegedly new press regulator IPSO when it came to having a snark at Peter Jukes. But the Fawkes rabble had already rubbished IPSO - because it might have come after them. Another fine mess.
1 Fleet Street Fox - Well Foxed Susie Boniface’s solo by-line on a piece about former footballer Ally McCoist and “Txt Sex” may yet require explanation. The impression that this one could have been obtained by less than totally legal means is all too clear.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
