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 shopping stuff to do later. So there.
6 Labour Councillor Sacking Fantasy Manchester Councillor Amina Lone was not barred from standing the in the next round of local Government elections because of her having spoken up for Sarah Champion. The timeline proves it.
5 Laura Pidcock Hit Job EXPLAINED The new intake Labour MP for North West Durham was turned on by the right-leaning part of the press for saying she would not socialise with Tory MPs. Why the ferocity of the backlash? It’s not hard to see why.
4 Tommy Robinson DEFAMES Scots Minister Stephen Yaxley Lennon made a series of highly damaging statements against Humza Yousaf, a minister in the Scottish Government. He can’t stand any of them up, so it could get interesting.
3 Prison Planet Antifa Lies BUSTED Battersea basement dweller Paul Watson was caught by Eliot Higgins of Bellingcat fame backing a number of fake “Antifa” Twitter feeds in order to support the totally fictitious claims about a “violent Alt-Left”.
2 Tommy Robinson Breaks The Law Stephen Yaxley Lennon arrived back from his holiday and recorded his passage through passport control, including identifying the UK Border Agency officer concerned. That’s illegal.
1 Guido Fawked - Owen Jones Climbdown The perpetually thirsty Paul Staines and his rabble at the Guido Fawkes blog pulled a nudge-and-wink smear on Owen Jones, suggesting his recent crowdfunding exercise was not all above board. They couldn’t back this up, so ended up making a humiliating climbdown. Another fine mess.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
