Top Six - June 12

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 catch-up to do later. So there.
6 Sun Front Page - EU Lied Again The Murdoch doggies’ attempt to frighten readers into thinking there were more Scary Migrants (tm) coming was revealed to be another pack of lies. No surprise there, then.

5 Tory Expenses - Brecon Beacon The expense return for the Brecon and Radnorshire constituency confirmed that Road Trip 2015 had been charged locally - until the short campaign, when it would have bust several candidates’ budgets.

4 Tory Expenses Deflection Fails The attempt by the perpetually thirsty Paul Staines and his rabble at the Guido Fawkes blog to con a Tory MP into getting the authorities to “look over there” at other parties fell flat. Another fine mess.

3 Sun Danny Baker Smear Busted The Murdoch poodles tried to connect Baker to Top Gear, claiming he was trousering significant sums of money from the show. Then they pulled the whole article.

2 Katie Hopkins Ramadan Bigotry Busted The pro-am motormouth indulged in 1930s style hate speech - but got away with it, because, after all, it’s only about Muslims.

1 Laura Kuenssberg - It’s Not Sexism After another allegation of less than totally even-handed behaviour, it had to be said: it’s not about gender, it’s about concerns over BBC impartiality.

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