Top Six - January 8

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 places to go and people to see later. So there.
6 Littlejohn Lies For His Supper Another day, another mostly fictitious account of what Section 40 of the Crime and Courts Act would bring. But it’s only an opinion column.

5 Fawkes Lineker Smear BUSTED The perpetually thirsty Paul Staines and his rabble at the Guido Fawkes blog went after the Match of the Day lead presenter and former footballer, who had committed the heinous crime of not wholeheartedly backing the press establishment on Leveson 2 and Section 40.

4 Sarah Vine Booze Hypocrisy Mrs Michael “Oiky” Gove went after all those young people who went out for a few drinks on New Year’s Eve. A few drinks being what she does every night of the year. We know because she says so.

3 Free Speech Campaigners BUSTED The people at 89up, notably Michael Harris and Padraig Reidy, told anyone who would listen that Section 40 of the Crime and Courts Act was a “Gagging Clause”, which it is not. But what they put in the small print was that they were being paid by the press establishment.

2 Murdoch Fires Louise Mensch - OFFICIAL As I told you all last November, Ms Mensch has been effectively sacked from her own website Heat Street. But it’s all amicable and she’s still a News Corp VP. Honestly.

1 Sun Gets The Blowback From Hull After the Murdoch goons slagged off the 2017 City of Culture, the moves for a sales boycott in Hull intensified. Not a good look for a paper that lost £60 million last year.

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