Top Six - December 24

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 Christmas travel prep to do later. So there.
6 Uber And A £1 Billion VAT Bill After the European Courts decided that driver and rider matching service Uber was a transportation company, and not a tech one as it had claimed, maybe all that VAT could now be collected.

5 Godfrey Bloom SACKED By Think Tank After Godders The Clown had smeared Goldman Sachs as a “Jewish Bank”, the Ludwig von Mises Centre, named for a Jewish economist, stripped him of his Hon Presidency.

4 Press Bullies Threaten Labour Activist The Daily Mail sent a reporter to harass the social media presence known as Rachael Swindon - it wasn’t down to any kind of public interest, just a crude way of shutting her up. And it didn’t work.

3 Ben Goldsmith Grenfell Smear BUSTED The deeply unpleasant Goldsmith proved he was a chip off the family block by trying to connect an alleged incident at a West London club to the peaceful march in support of the Grenfell victims and their families.

2 Jess Phillips In Deep Trouble The motormouth Labour MP going to Rupert Murdoch’s penthouse party was bad enough, but then came well-sourced claims that she had been getting a little too close to one very right-wing Tory MP.

1 Bercow Faces Down Dacre The Commons Speaker put himself on a collision course with the Daily Mail’s legendarily foul mouthed editor by telling MPs that they were not “malcontents” or “enemies of the people”, in the wake of death threats following another assault by the Mail.

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