Top Six - August 7

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 be out and about later. So there.
6 Liam Fox Charity - Where Were The Press? It was left to BuzzFeed to ask the questions of the disgraced former Defence Secretary’s latest charitable venture, which has promised much, but delivered little.

5 Heat Street Incitement BUSTED The Murdoch-bankrolled website’s attempt to turn the London stabbing last week into a terrorist incident was bad enough, without the shocking manipulation of evidence.

4 UKIP Hopeful In Not A Barrister Leadership contender Steven Woolfe had been described as a barrister - but he was not on the Bar Standards Board’s list of practising members. So when did he cease practising, and why?

3 Sun Abandons Danczuk The Super Soaraway Currant Bun ran another exposé on Rochdale’s nominally Labour MP before telling him to stand down in an editorial.

2 Simon Danczuk - Expulsion Beckons After it was revealed that Rochdale’s nominally Labour MP had used his taxpayer-funded constituency office for casual sex with a 22-year-old woman, the Labour Party would have little choice but to expel him.

1 Labour’s Chakrabarti Mess The row over Shami Chakrabarti’s peerage was in most part down to ineptitude by Jeremy Corbyn and his inner circle. They have nobody else to blame but themselves.

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