Top Six - June 28

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 empty the washing machine later. So there.
6 Tories’ Northern Powerhouse Fraud What was promised before the General Election was never going to be delivered - and so it came to pass.
5 Super Soaraway No Bomb Plot Yesterday’s Sun front page story fell apart as soon as it was subjected to a little examination. We need full disclosure to see exactly who started the exchange. One sincerely hopes, for the Sun’s sake, that it was not them.
4 Sun Muslim Convert Lies Busted The man who beheaded an elderly woman in her garden had been called a “Muslim Convert” by the Sun - the reality was that he was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia. No regrets from the Murdoch faithful, though.
3 Sun Pundit STILL Bullying Teenager Abby Tomlinson, custodian of the #Milifandom craze, was subjected to yet more grief last week - by the same hypocrite.
2 Don’t Menshn Charlotte Church (Thankfully) former Tory MP Louise Mensch went off on a rant against singer Charlotte Church. But all the sniping she could muster did not as much as merit a reply.
1 Simon Danczuk Janner Smokescreen Nominally Labour MP Simon Danczuk jumped on the bandwagon urging action against Greville Janner. But he came to it years later than his colleague Tom Watson, and the thought occurred that he was doing this to divert attention from his and wife Karen’s problems.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
