Top Six - March 18

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 Stephen Hawking - And Politics The physicist, who has died at the age of 76, was not merely a groundbreaking figure in his chosen profession, he was a great campaigner, and indeed an unswerving supporter of Labour and Jeremy Corbyn.

5 Corbyn Migrant Attack WASN’T The SNP went into mischief making mode after Jezza delivered a speech to the Scottish Labour conference. But he wasn’t scapegoating migrants, merely restating opposition to gangmasterism.

4 Britain First Leaders SUED FOR LIBEL Second week on the Top Six for this post - after Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen were jailed, and with another court appearance in prospect, they now face a libel action that could ruin them.

3 Far Right Bigot Barred From Britain The authorities decided that we could get along fine without the presence of Lauren Southern. Cue Alt-Right whinging and wailing.

2 Uber - TfL KNEW It Was Illegal Second week on the Top Six for this post too - information from another FoI trawl shows TfL knew Uber was breaking the rules, and therefore the law, at the end of 2013. Not last year.

1 Corbyn, Tories, Russia AND REALITY Once again, our free and fearless press laid into the Labour leader for being insufficiently bellicose, somehow not noticing that if anyone had a connection to Russia, it was all those Tories benefiting from their money. 

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