Sunny Hundal’s Greatest Hits
Proof the IDS Welfare-to-Work Reforms Working

So farewell then, Sunny Hundal. Liberal Conspiracy is soon to be no more. Sunny is closing it down because “there is just too much opinion out there”, he is off to lecture at Brian Cathcart’s world-renowned Kingston University. Proof that IDS’ policies are working. Welfare-to-work has succeeded in reducing Hounslow’s unemployment rate…

We’re going to miss him. So many precious memories:

There was the time he took to Twitter from his mum’s spare bedroom to stick up for Chris Huhne, at the time Guido was pushing the story:

There was the time he “exclusively leaked” the Coalition agreement, when it had already been published by the BBC and was officially available to download. When he celebrated the hospitalisation of someone he disagrees with. The time he dismissed the student protest violence at CCHQ, calling the Tories and police wusses. And when he got to the bottom of what losing the Bradford West by-election really meant for Labour:

Who can forget the the time he voted Green. The time he voted LibDem. The time he said vote Tory. All despite being Miliband’s biggest cheerleader.

Not to mention when he was ridiculed by the entire internet for trying to argue that all right-wingers are evil. When he set up a petition to debate in parliament something he didn’t want to be debated in parliament. And when Jim Naughtie told him to shut up. Finally, when he was named the 16th worst person on Twitter:

“He perfectly encapsulates the uselessness of political discussion in Britain. He isn’t even effective at the minor, inconsequential tasks he sets for himself.”

“We want to be the hub” of left-wing online collaborative politics, Sunny said grandly back in 2007. Turns out it’s just a one-man show. ‘Innit…

N.B. Feel free to add any other favourites from the Sunny back catalogue in the comments.

    The usual specious criticisms but to be fair I never thought much of Sunny boy and his silly site. It lacked a radical edge and refused to countenance the realities of the failure of political correctness and the Labour left.

    The school is so popular with north London’s leftwing parents it has sometimes been dubbed “Labour’s Eton”. Miliband attended there from 1978 to 1983, at the same time as the novelist Zoë Heller and former Labour MP Oona King.

    Where would people like him be were it not for the BBC?

    They would have the Grauniad and the Mirror, maybe the Indy on a good day.

    Forget about Mirror readers who are hard-wired to vote Labour and are incapable of understanding any word longer than two syllables. That leaves twice the half of fuck all.

    The only reason that he, Owen Jones, and all these other spastics have any traction is because of the BBC. Not though their own efforts.

    Wankers! Utter wankers!

    Vote UKIP, vote now, vote often, vote like Labour does (start those John Bull printing kits and let us see UKIP in the 90% of support throughout the land!) :-D

    On the other hand we could get those 3D gun printing kits and not bother voting at all. One thing Marx did get right: “Democracy will last only until people realise they can vote themselves more money”.

    No, lets face it the people that were unemployed in Hounslow only ever voted Labour although most don’t know that since their votes were cast by post by someone they never even met.

    what … does that mean he is still using the earliest version of the telephone beloved of the Victorian gentry who were the only class rich enough to have one installed in the main entrance hallways .

    Of course only the servants were mandated to answer such new fangled servile invention

    indeed as the first ear trumpet telephones did not ring it was a matter of pure chance whether the call was ever answered .

    To minimise this all servants were sworn to bounden duty to pick up the receiver every time thy walked past it and rannounce the residence in case there was someone on the other end .

    is cammy still using that procedure for 21 st century communications ?

    i suppose its the only apparatus left in downing st after mc cavity smashed all the new ones agaist the walls.

    Guido may remember (as he was a fellow speaker) a Euro Blog panel event at Smith Square a few years ago where Sunny pompously stated that his purpose in life was “to destroy the Tories”. They won most seats at the next election and still look pretty healthy, does this mean he can claim utter failure?

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
