Top Six - April 29

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 Amber Rudd - Shopped By Her Own Team As the Home Secretary tried to tough it out over the Windrush scandal, her own department leaked a crucial memo to the Guardian.

5 Alfie Evans And The Stateside Sickos The tragedy of a 23-month-old toddler with an incurable brain condition was hijacked by the right-wing fringe, with the result that some appallingly ignorant and defamatory claims were being made about the case.

4 Windrush Fiasco Snares RAF Family The 2014 tightening of immigration laws is now preventing a 39-year-old man who was born in an RAF hospital while his parents served in Germany from obtaining a passport.

3 Liverpool Smear - Express Deception The excuses advanced by the Express for yet another smear of Liverpool FC’s fans did not wash - it was entirely their fault.

2 Amber Rudd Is Now Finished The Home Secretary knew what was going on with the Windrush Generation, and either lied about it to the Commons, or was so inept as to be unfit to serve. Either way, she has to go.

1 Toronto Attack Rebounds On The Alt-Right The usual attempt to pin a vehicle attack in the Canadian city on more of those Scary Muslims (tm) blew back on the alt-right when it was discovered that the culprit was one of their own.

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