Top Six - November 29

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 kitchen tidying to do later. So there.
6 Stig Abell - Pants On Fire The Sun’s managing editor wrote to the Guardian defending his paper’s claim that one in five British Muslims sympathised with ISIS, or whatever it’s called this week. But his case depended on a false premise.
5 Shapps Is Sacrificed The Tory bullying scandal took its first major scalp as former party co-chairman Grant “Spiv” Shapps resigned. He will not be the last to go.
4 Bullygate - Cole Clueless The odious flannelled fool Master Cole’s view of the Tory bullying scandal managed to miss out rather a lot of the story - like his personal knowledge of many of those involved.
3 Sun Muslim Poll Unravels The pollsters disowned the Sun’s interpretation of their data, and then we discovered that the paper’s usual pollster YouGov had refused the assignment.
2 Tory Bullying - Behind The Spin Simon Hattenstone’s Guardian article pulled together the threads of the scandal. But there were a few details to add to his analysis. See them right here.
1 Sun Muslim Bigotry Busted The paper’s claim of British Muslim support for ISIS was downright dishonest. Worse, it was so obviously dishonest that the story unravelled almost as soon as it hit the newsstands.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
