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.

      Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain.
      Sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain.
      Oh, the dark days are done and the bright days are here,
      my sunny one shines so sincere.
      Oh, Sunny one so true, I love you.

      Sunny, thank you for the sunshine bouquet.
      Sunny, thank you for the love you brought my way.
      You gave to me your all and all,
      now I feel ten feet tall.
      Oh, Sunny one so true, I love you.

      Interested observer says:

      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?

      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.

    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.

    Ah yes Kingston University the place that made Steve Ross Talbot a professor, a bigger bullshitter and liar it would be hard to find, a man who knows less about his subject than a first year undergrad. A joke.

          Are there any that aren’t chock full of lefties? (Apart from Buckingham, the only independent Uni.) Left comes fitted as standard, just a question of how far left. I feel sorry for any student burdened with debt to support the Marx brothers. Mis-selling of education.

    What qualifications does Hundal have to lecture at a University?

    Does he has a PhD?

    Is he a Qualified Teacher?

    What peer reviewed research has he ever published?

    Presumably as a ‘lecturer’ at Kingston University he will be regularly interviewed by all manner of BBC (at public expense) programmes as an ‘academic expert’ to comment on issues of the day.

    Born in London to Sikh parents of Indian origin, Hundal has a degree in Economics from Brunel University. He is best known as the founder and editor of the centre-left group blog Liberal Conspiracy. Comment is Free on the Guardian website named him as their blogger of the year in 2006. Hundal has also written for publications including The Guardian, The Financial Times and The Independent, and is noted for his messages on Twitter

    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”.

    “Welfare-to-work has succeeded in reducing Hounslow’s unemployment rate”

    Like fuck it has.

    It’s only disguised the reality, while at the same time enormously increasing the number of people longing for regime change so Tory scum can be eradicated for good.


    • 57
      FFS says:

      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.

    I consider myself politically savvy, but I can honestly say I have never heard of this Sunny. Didn’t Boney M have a hit with this in the 1970’s ?
