Top Six - June 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 to be out in the garden later. So there.
6 Mail Migrant Sandwich Smear Busted The Mail’s attack on Glencore, who produce sandwiches for major supermarkets, was revealed to be two things: to put people off their food, and more especially to demonise migrants. So no change there, then.
5 Press Pack Pissed Off By Cameron It’s not a good idea to screw around with those who just helped you back into 10 Downing Street. But it’s exactly what Dave did after he was reported as threatening to sack ministers who campaigned to leave the EU.
4 Surly Burley Alton Towers Fail Kay Burley’s shouty interview with the CEO of Alton Towers gained well over a thousand complaints to Ofcom. But it didn’t advance her cause one millimetre.
3 Nadine Dorries Facing Election Petition The fragrant Nadine may have won her biggest majority last month, but she now faces an election petition launched by Tim Ireland, who stood as an independent candidate in Mid Bedfordshire. Should the petition be accepted, she could face disqualification.
2 HSBC - Election Lies Exposed We were told before the election that there was a risk to jobs at HSBC if Labour won. The jobs were going anyway.
1 Burnham Football Smear Fail The hatchet job on Labour leadership candidate Andy Burnham over his footballing past came unstuck after the Telegraph’s star witness disowned the article.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
