Top Six - October 27

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 to be out and about later. So there.
6 Andrew Pierce Train Fare Lie DERAILED That’s the problem with telling whoppers about open fares - they can be checked against fact. Bad news for Daily Mail pundits.

5 We Have Witnessed Peak Brexit The defeat of Bozo’s timetable motion could be the moment it all begins to unravel, as the economic impact of Bozo Brexit is sure to be leaked, and then rather fewer voters will want to know about it.

4 Question Time Lobbyist Disclosure Fail The BBC was going to identify lobbyists when they appeared on politics programmes. Or maybe not, as happened last Thursday.

3 Oborne Almost Fawked - But It Backfires The perpetually thirsty Paul Staines and his rabble at the Guido Fawkes blog whopped and hollered that the Daily Mail had fired Peter Oborne. But they hadn’t. Another fine mess.

2 Cummings Fake News Row Escalates After Peter Oborne called out Robert Peston and Laura Kuenssberg by name in a Channel 4 News interview, it was clear that some of those taking that “Senior 10 Downing Street source” as fact need to start doing less stenography, and more journalism.

1 Rachel Riley Openly Defames The Canary The smears are now getting totally out of hand. It’s possible that it’s only because they can’t afford to take Ms Riley to the cleaners that is stopping those at The Canary instructing lawyers.

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