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 Theodora Dickinson - Pants On Fire Behold the new Tory right - utterly clueless and appallingly dishonest. As well as bigoted.
5 737 Max Crashes - Boeing In Big Trouble They knew about the potentially deadly problems with the new Max 8 four days before the Ethiopian Airlines crash. That may just take some explaining away.
4 Rod Liddle Disabled Attack REPEAT The occasionally mobile amateur human being attacked sufferers of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or ME, in his Times column. But the worst thing about his going after the disabled was that he had done it before - six years earlier, in the Sun. Murdoch and targeting minorities, eh?
3 Tommy Robinson Excuses BEYOND DESPERATE The apologia of Stephen Yaxley Lennon, as he counters the backlash of his doorstepping and doxxing Mike Stuchbery, has now gone from exaggeration and dishonesty to downright fantasy.
2 James Goddard Martyrdom Attempt FAILS The de facto leader of the UK’s “Yellow Vests” movement, aka the Amateur Comedy Sturmabteilung, tried to provoke the authorities into making him a jailed martyr when appearing at Westminster Magistrates Court. But all he got was due process.
1 A50 Petition Fake News FAWKED The perpetually thirsty Paul Staines and his rabble at the Guido Fawkes blog claimed the petition urging the Government to revoke Article 50 was being stuffed full of dodgy foreigners. But it wasn’t. Another fine mess.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
