It was almost 4 am in the morning. Dawn was breaking. And something was dawning. Sunny Hundal sitting at his keyboard and uttering what is probably the biggest pile he has ever come up with. I don't know why. Inexplicable.
Is this just link bait? Or for a dare? Sunny suggests that:
"It makes more sense for brown and black people, who will overwhelmingly face the brunt of this police-state legislation, to vote Conservative."
This line is prefaced by the ridiculous idea that New Labour wants to see every brown person in the country locked up. And apart from the thinness of his case for this idea of his it is surely anathema to be setting yourself up and calling for such ovine block voting?
In Manchester of course Tories campaigned with Hizb_ut-Tahrir literature as well as their own. Their track record nationally is one of a stunning and persistent attack on working people of all hues, of running the economy for the selfish interest of their class and against the rest of us, of actually using internment laws to lock up 2,000 people, and of opposing the majority of developments of equality and fairness proposed in this country.
And of course they supported the wars of the day with more enthusuasm and a much higher proportion of their votes than Labour ever did.
Is Sunny quite mad? He will of course know that his hero David Davis not only would have hanged various wrongfully convicted Irish convicts but also would lock up every asylum seeker and refugee he can get his hands on.
UPDATE: 13 Hours on Sunny came clean. As much of a wind up as Chasing Bush II: Operation Manticore.
