Top Six - August 9

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 Don’t Menshn Tim Montgomerie (thankfully) former Tory MP Louise Mensch picked a Twitter fight with Monty, ended up arguing with herself, and still lost.
5 Simon Danczuk Bandwagon Jump Fail Rochdale’s nominally Labour MP went grandstanding once more, this time on historic allegations against former PM Ted Heath. His colleague Tom Watson had already done the hard work. As so often, Danczuk did nothing about the allegations until there was an opportunity for self-promotion.
4 Katie Hopkins - IPSO Problem The supposedly new and improved press regulator had already dismissed the complaint about pro-am motormouth Ms Hopkins’ “cockroaches” comments on refugees. So if the cops pursue the complaint that was made directly to them, that puts Alan Moses in one of those Very Difficult Positions.
3 Mail Corbyn Holocaust Smear Busted The Mail is so not frightened of Jeremy Corbyn that it ran a single-sourced smear against him based on little more than hearsay. And the Mail calling anti-Semitism on others is never a good idea.
2 Murdoch Abandons Boris It was so different two years ago: Rupert Murdoch was inviting London’s increasingly occasional Mayor Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson round to dinner with senior executives. Now, the Sun has trashed his reputation and he’s been blamed by one of the paper’s pundits for the Tube strike.
1 Katie Hopkins Meets The Police The Sun’s pro-am motormouth has been interviewed under caution by the Met following a complaint from the Society of Black Lawyers about her “cockroaches” comments about refugees. And it looks like it was a No Comment one, too. There’s an entry for your diaries.

And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
