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 to be out and about later. So there.
6 Sun Attacks Its Own Lawyer The Super Soaraway Currant Bun railed against what it called “Greedy MPs”. Second in their rogues’ gallery was Geoffrey Cox QC - who is defending the paper’s deputy editor right now in a court case. There’s gratitude for you.
5 Hugh Grant Proved Right The Sun’s non-bullying political editor Tom Newton Dunn was deeply offended when Hugh Grant appeared on the Radio 4 Today programme and said he hadn’t had much to do with amendments to RIPA, the act the Police have been using to get hold of journalists’ phone records.

4 Katie Hopkins Can’t Read Properly The semi-professional motormouth went on a rant about the BBC and a survey of Muslims. But her conclusions depended on her not having read most of it.
3 Don’t Menshn Hacked Off Louise Mensch was not there at the lobby event last Wednesday. So she shot her mouth off about it anyway.
2 Guido Fawked - Hacked Off Fantasy The creative retelling of what happened in Committee Room 14 at the Commons last Wednesday was rather easy to pick apart. Because it was, largely, a pack of lies. Another fine mess.

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