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 Priti Patel LIED To Andrew Marr Our new Home Secretary claimed she had not advocated for the death penalty after becoming an MP. Not true.
5 Ben Stokes Nails The Sun The England cricketer responded with great dignity to the Murdoch goons digging up a story about his family from before he was born. Press misbehaviour never really went away.
4 Gareth Thomas Nails The Sun Hard on the heels of the Stokes story came the news that a tabloid had effectively blackmailed Thomas, threatening to tell the world that he was living with HIV. No prizes for guessing the identity of the paper concerned.
3 Bozo NHS Row - BBC In Fawkes Sewer The pointing out of the Twitter handle of the man who confronted our alleged Prime Minister at Whipps Cross University Hospital over lack of NHS resources - while telling the world he was a Labour activist - was not a good look for the Corporation.
2 Frances Barber’s Bigoted Meltdown Attacking brown people and Jews - what does that sound like?
1 Tommy Robinson - Back To Intimidation Stephen Yaxley Lennon went after a man with mental health problems who was not a danger to anyone. But grifters gonna grift.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
