Saturday Seven Up

7upThe story of the week on the blog was the hunt for the extinguisher tosser, Guido offered a bounty as a reward, so many readers offered to chip in such that we had pledges for well over the original £1000. We will keep our counsel and see what results. Many thanks for the pledges.

The blog’s reporting of the NUS riot this week has been comprehensive, we were there, we were unspun – when the BBC claimed CCHQ had been evacuated this blog reported correctly from sources inside that it had not been. When the NUS spun that a small minority of outsiders were responsible we highlighted the involvement of NUS officials and elected national officers, exposing NUS president Aaron Porter’s hypocrisy in calling for a “demo-lition” on a route passing in front of CCHQ and his warning days before the march that “we will use every weapon in our armoury” telling students they needed to be not just on “the streets of London” but “inside the rooms where the deals will be made”. The rioters took him at his word…

Guido’s favourite story of the week however was this piece of business news. The blog had 242,789 visits and 400,884 pageviews by 86,544 visitors. The top 7 stories last week in order of popularity were:
