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 another load of washing to do later. So there.
6 Harvey Proctor Protests Too Much The former hard right Tory MP proclaimed his innocence in a news conference last week, before smearing Labour’s Tom Watson and thereby devaluing his case. He was not, as an MP, well-liked.
5 Corbyn Threatens Murdoch Empire The suggestion from veteran left-winger Jeremy Corbyn that he would favour breaking up Creepy Uncle Rupe’s UK interests will guarantee only one thing - even more press abuse.
4 Don’t Menshn Paul Mason In another display of routine stupidity, (thankfully) former Tory MP Louise Mensch not only failed to understand that Channel 4 Economics Editor Paul Mason was talking about China - not the UK or US - but also claimed wrongly that he worked for the BBC.
3 Corbyn Women’s Carriages Spin Busted No, Jeremy Corbyn did not propose that there should be women-only carriages on trains. Not even after the right-leaning part of the press kept on claiming that he did.
2 Toby Young’s Puerile Bigotry Busted The loathsome Tobes used the incident on board an Amsterdam to Paris Thalys service to claim that the French needed Brits and Yanks to sort out their problems for them. Sadly, his claims were not based on reality and he was roundly condemned as a result.
1 Don’t Menshn Twitter Vigilantes The actions of (thankfully) former Tory MP Louise Mensch and her fetcher and carrier Jeremy Duns, appearing to act as if they were the law and behaving in a bullying manner towards those whose views they did not approve of, need to stop. And they need to stop right now (Duns has since left Twitter).
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
