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 shopping stuff to do later. So there.
6 Littlejohn Islamophobia Busted The Daily Mail’s tedious and unfunny churnalist whined the house down because Michelle Obama had visited the UK, and given a talk at a girls’ school in London. Where most of the pupils were from Muslim families, which he found too much to bear.
5 Taliban New Labour - THE REALITY The claim that the leadership campaigns of Andy Burnham and Yvette Cooper had called that of Liz Kendall “Taliban New Labour” came to grief when nobody who supported either team was found to have uttered the phrase. But it did enable the Kendall team to play the victim.
4 Dan Hodges Corbyn Meltdown The Telegraph’s less than celebrated blues artiste Whinging Dan Hodges brought back the worst intolerance of the Blair years as he insisted that Jeremy Corbyn should not, for some reason, be allowed on the Labour leadership ballot.
3 Sunday Times Snowden Story Busted The ST allowed itself to be used for Government propaganda purposes, in a shockingly bad lead story that soon fell apart.
2 Katie Hopkins Top Gear Meltdown To no surprise at all, one Sun pundit was whining that another Sun pundit (Jeremy Clarkson) would no longer be fronting Top Gear.
1 Toby Young Commits Fraud The loathsome Tobes hit on a whizzo idea - signing up as a Labour supporter in order to vote for Jeremy Corbyn in the leadership election. But to do so, he had to pull two whoppers. And then the party rumbled him, binned his application, and he won’t get his £3 back. So that’s a result, folks!
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
