Top Six - May 31

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 Simon Danczuk Damns Liz Kendall Rochdale’s self-promoting and nominally Labour MP backed Ms Kendall for the Labour leadership. Thus the kiss of death.
5 Simon Danczuk Expenses Hypocrisy The MP representing part of the Metropolitan Borough of Rochdale, who engages in much London-centric activity, joined in the Sun’s attack on Andy Burnham’s expense claims. Except that Danczuk, surprisingly for a back-bencher, claims rather more.
4 Sun Human Rights Confusion The Super Soaraway Currant Bun wanted rid of the Human Rights Act. Except that they also wanted it to be there, when they needed to use it in court to defend themselves.
3 Sun’s IPSO Transgender Shame Even IPSO declined to wipe the Sun’s corporate backside over Rod Liddle’s nasty attack on blind and transgendered prospective Parliamentary candidate Emily Brothers. And the paper’s bullying and intimidation tactics didn’t work, either.
2 Littlejohn BBC Weather Lies Busted To no surprise at all, the Corporation was not advertising for a weather presenter, and not requiring them to have any qualifications other than a disability. It was just an advert for a training course.
1 Daily Mail Kos Shame The Mail’s scaremongering over refugees fetching up on the Greek island of Kos was real barrel scraping stuff. As usual.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
