Top Six - December 31

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 New Year prep to do later. So there.
6 Nadine Dorries Defends Sex Pests The fragrant Nadine might have been better advised to read the article she cited in yet another ill-advised social media excursion.

5 Tory Royal Yacht Shame 50 MPs from The Blue Team decided, given current levels of homelessness, food bank usage and other deprivation, that awarding the Royals a trophy boat was a good idea. No. Just no.

4 Katie Hopkins Grenfell Smears WORSEN The pro-am motormouth saw all those families still without a place to call home and decided it was all about illegal migrants getting free stuff. She still hasn’t got a paid berth. I wonder why.

3 Sun Bacon Advertorial BUSTED A front page splash dedicated to plugging a posh hipster product that most of the paper’s readers can’t afford. When editor Tony Gallagher gets the boot, it won’t be soon enough.

2 Virgin East Coast Bailout WASN’T Back on the Top Six is the news that some in the press and punditerati got this one just a little bit wrong. There was no bailout.

1 Mail Harasses Single Mum Sending a hack with a hidden camera to snoop on an intended target is not only totally out of order - it busts the IPSO Editor’s Code. But don’t expect our sham press regulator to do any more than wipe the Mail’s backside over it.

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