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 domestic clear-up stuff to do later. So there.
6 The Sun Says Look Over There The paper’s alleged “Westminster Correspondent” waded into the Tory Bullying row by urging that the PM sack Andrew Feldman. What Harry Cole did not tell readers was that this would, purely by coincidence you understand, take the heat off his pals.
5 Tory Bullying - Shapps Fantasy Former party co-chairman Grant “Spiv” Shapps had ambitions to run for the leadership, had the Tories lost the election. That tells you all you need to know about how in touch these people are with reality.
4 Sun Cameron Smear Busted Another day, another Harry Cole “exclusive”, another steaming pile of crap. The idea that David Cameron used Mark Clarke as some kind of hitman is the stuff of fantasy, but it keeps the attention off Cole’s pals.
3 Tory Bullying - YBF Whitewash Young Britons’ Foundation Donal Blaney’s attempts to erase Mark Clarke from his organisation’s history isn’t working.
2 Sun Witchhunt Hypocrisy The claims by the Sun that there was nothing for them to apologise for, or that there hadn’t been a cover-up, does not square with Rupert Murdoch’s admissions to the Leveson Inquiry. That would be their boss.
1 The Sun’s Croatian Double Lie The “6 days to terror” story about a reporter who claimed to travel from Turkey to Paris without showing his passport unravelled so spectacularly that the paper pulled the online version.
And that’s the end of another blogtastic week, blog pickers. Not ‘arf!
