Top Six - October 30

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 lots of food prep to do later. So there.
6 Heat Street Is Truly Bust (fortunately) former Tory MP Louise Mensch had already been caught shilling for Hillary Clinton - while apparently pandering to the Alt-Right and GamerGate crowd - and now she was discovered to have been practising censorship of her own writers. The end for Heat Street can’t come soon enough.

5 Let’s Ask Tony Gallagher It took just one Twitter hashtag for the Sun’s editor to find out just what the public really thinks of him.

4 Toby Young Fails Upwards The loathsome Tobes has been gifted a new job - one that he has already shown that he is not fit to perform.

3 IPSO Board Member Caught Lying Faithful Murdoch retainer Trevor Kavanagh appeared to have abused his position as a board member of sham press regulator IPSO as he laid into Channel 4 presenter Fatima Manji for a bit of afters.

2 Nissan Brexit Bribe Backfires Whatever Theresa May didn’t offer Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn, it not only gave him the confidence to keep production at the company’s Sunderland plant, but also had everyone else in the automotive and aerospace industries wanting a bit of it too. And it looks like it has taken “Hard Brexit” off the table.

1 Toby Young Ken Loach Smear BUSTED The loathsome Tobes took a fat paycheque from the Daily Mail for a shoddily researched and badly argued hatchet job on Loach’s latest film I, Daniel Blake. The level of shamelessness is staggering - but not, it seems, for the Pundit Establishment, for whom this is mere routine.

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