  • Tonight at 8pm on Sky News


    by Sunny
    9th November, 2006 at 4:11 pm    

    Sky News have asked me to come in and discuss news items with the presenter. So in other words I may have to give my opinion on anything that comes up over a period of 40 min as the news is being read out. I accept I’m quite opinionated but surely this is stretching it? What if Britney Spears’ divorce comes up?
    So anyway, if you want to see me make a fool of myself tune into Sky News at 8pm tonight. I should be listed as editor of Pickled Politics blog.

      Jeez, we can’t move without Hundal popping up somewhere or other!

      Good luck.

      Shall we have a competition? Like, a shot of Tequila every time Sunny mentions ‘Phillips’ or ‘Blair’ or something like that? Or, how many Fleetwood Mac song titles can you slip into the discourse unnoticed?

    2. Leon — on 9th November, 2006 at 4:44 pm  

      Anyone able to record this and stick it up on YouTube?

    3. Douglas Clark — on 9th November, 2006 at 4:52 pm  

      Sunny,

      Cover your ass on Rumsfeld, I doubt they’ll even know the Senate has fallen yet. Oh, this should be fun. I wonder if my wee computer can pick up a link….

      Best of luck.

      You are in favour of Britneys divorce, either because you fancy her and she’s available, or because you don’t and she’s on the scrap heap. Who cares?

    4. Kismet Hardy — on 9th November, 2006 at 4:53 pm  

      Sunny, quick quips about today’s news to keep you in the know-all know-how

      UK INTERESTS RATES INCREASED TO 5%
      DO SAY: “Either way, with interest rates 50 basis points higher than six months ago, it could be a contributing factor to deterring people from entering the housing market over the next few months.”

      DON’T SAY: “I know all about inflation. My bed is inflatable. I find it helps letting out 5% of air makes it softer to lie on.”

      FA TO INVESTIGATE BETTING CLAIMS
      DO SAY: “FA rules forbid managers and players betting on competitions they are involved in. So foul play if the allegations are proven true, but let’s remember they are but allegations for now.”

      DON’T SAY: “In India, we all fix matches. We fix elections too you know. It’s only in this country that you call us to fix computers”

      KATE MOSS PAYING £25,000 TO FIX PETE DOHERTY’S TEETH
      DO SAY: “We all know narcotic abuse leads to dental problems. If it’s true they’ve both given up drugs, this is a good gesture to show they are being tooth to their word.”

      DON’T SAY: “Pete Doherty? Pete Cunt, more like”

    5. Jagdeep — on 9th November, 2006 at 4:56 pm  

      Kismet why can’t you go on these programmes? I think you’d make a good opinion person.

      Good luck Hundal.

    6. Leon — on 9th November, 2006 at 4:57 pm  

      Don’t forget Bernard Jenkins using the word coloured, and the fallout of the US elections and what it means for Blair etc over here.

    7. Leon — on 9th November, 2006 at 5:01 pm  

      Interesting news:

      Johnson backing Brown for leader

      Education Secretary Alan Johnson has stepped aside from the race for the Labour leadership, saying he will support Chancellor Gordon Brown.

      http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/6133276.stm

    8. Kismet Hardy — on 9th November, 2006 at 5:01 pm  

      I made a good political point earlier. I did you know. No doubt it went ignored but I’ll say it again cos I was so proud of myself I shot my load. Anyhoo:

      The republicans aren’t necessarily totally gutted. After two years of very little positive to show, having democrats on board means they can happily pass the buck

      Shot my load again

    9. zahed — on 9th November, 2006 at 5:03 pm  

      Good luck Sunny! Give ‘em hell (or niceness, depending on your mood and the relevant question)!

    10. Kismet Hardy — on 9th November, 2006 at 5:10 pm  

      Just checked the sky news headlines. Some possible asian-centric angles if ya need it:

      Internet paedophile jailed. It might be worth mentioning the story about how Islamists were going onto Asian chatrooms posing as girls as part of their recruitment policy? Also, Asian girls are more likely to be lured into running away from home by someone who promises them love on the net…

      The interest rate thing again. It’s worth noting that many Asians are only beginning to be in the same boat as the rest when it comes to reaching for the property ladder. The tradition of the palatial Asian family home being handed down is becoming less and less the case…

      Britney Spears thing again. Many Asian women put up with a shitbag for a husband for the sake of children and tradition - just like britney - but there’s only so far you can push her. the rate of asian divorces is, thus, heartening

    11. Kismet Hardy — on 9th November, 2006 at 5:21 pm  

      Ooh thought of another one. The poppy debate. A Christian group want us to wear white ones instead of red because red denotes war and death.

      Worth noting that in the days of British Raj, many farmers in the sub-continent (particularly bangladesh) were forced to grow poppy instead of rice and jute (a habit still in full force in afghanistan), so Asians have a right to feel a bit funny about the symbol.

      Since it’s about rememberance, why don’t you suggest we all wear brown ones?

    12. Sunny — on 9th November, 2006 at 5:25 pm  

      I know what’ll happen. They’ll question me endlessly on Israel/Palestine (hah!I thought I’d get in there before Anas) and then, because I’ll take the middle ground, I’ll have MPAC and the Jewish Board of Deputies on my ass.

      Kismet I’m gonna write that up and say it on screen! “Britney Spears? Oh yeah, I’d do her.”

      *shock look on presenter’s face*

      thanks for the messages of support everyone!

    13. Jagdeep — on 9th November, 2006 at 5:29 pm  

      Kismet, after I finished wiping the tears of laughter from my eyes after reading this news item, for some reason, I immediately thought of you.

      http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,,1943543,00.html

      A man has suffered severe internal injuries after trying to launch a powerful firework from his bottom on bonfire night, it emerged today.

      The man is reported to have got down on all fours, lowered his trousers and fixed a Black Cat Thunderbolt rocket to himself in front of a group of friends at the end of a firework display in the Monkwearmouth area of Sunderland on Sunday.

      The man, whose injuries include a scorched colon, is still in hospital.

      ====

      I know I should pray he recovers, but that’s the funniest thing I’ve read in a long long time.

      Topical angle? He is a soldier just returned from Iraq.

    14. Kismet Hardy — on 9th November, 2006 at 5:35 pm  

      Jagdeep I’m touched from the top to the bottom of my, well, bottom. I saw that story on the train this morny. Cracked me up. Then I cracked up some more because of the word crack itself. That’s like laughing then finding something funny in laughter itself. I’m off to take some crack and laugh some more. Look out for me on Crimewatch UK

    15. Don — on 9th November, 2006 at 5:36 pm  

      Good luck, Sunny. The Hundal media juggernaut trundles on.

      Poppys are red. Because, in the words the Fun Lovin’ Criminals

      Some of us are wise
      And some of us are suckers
      But we all bleed red
      Even racist motherfuckers

      By the way, are we all poppied up yet?

    16. Kismet Hardy — on 9th November, 2006 at 5:39 pm  

      “Anyone able to record this and stick it up on YouTube?”

      Oh please please do.

      Good luck my Sun

    17. Kismet Hardy — on 9th November, 2006 at 5:44 pm  

      Don…

      http://news.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,30100-13551435,00.html

      Don’t wear poppies (torn between the evil drug trade and taking heroin) but to ask for a flower to change colour on principle sounds a bit smacked out

    18. Jai — on 9th November, 2006 at 5:48 pm  

      Sunny,

      Very best of luck for tonight. I guess this means I’ll have to keep flicking over from that blokey piece of glitzy escapism that is “Las Vegas” on Sky Two. You’d better be worth it, mundea !

      I dare you to slip in the word “Tequila” somewhere during the course of your conversation on Sky News tonight. Go on, it’ll be an inside joke for PP, and you know all the Picklers here will be cracking up when you randomly manage to slip that word in.

      Go on my son….Go on….Go on…..GoOnGoOnGoOnGoOn….

    19. William — on 9th November, 2006 at 5:52 pm  

      Won’t see Sky you tonight as will be out at work but good luck Sunny.

    20. Riz — on 9th November, 2006 at 5:55 pm  

      Quality. Poor Sky don’t know what they have let themselves in for.

      We should push for Sunny to get his own slot!

    21. Sunny — on 9th November, 2006 at 6:01 pm  

      Heh, ok I’m gonna try but I know I’ll start laughing as soon as I say the word Tequila and make a fool of myself. Now it’s even more nervewracking!

    22. Jai — on 9th November, 2006 at 6:06 pm  

      Don’t worry Sunny — just imagine a Mariachi band popping up behind you out of nowhere and the music suddenly blaring when you say the word. That should help you keep a straight face.

      *sniggers*

    23. Anas — on 9th November, 2006 at 6:16 pm  

      They’ll question me endlessly on Israel/Palestine

      On one of Murdoch’s channels? just after a major Israeli attrocity? I doubt it. But you could follow my strategy of mentioning it at every opportunity.

    24. StrangelyPsychedelique / Kesara — on 9th November, 2006 at 6:21 pm  

      Shall I give you my RUPERT MURDOCH ForTheWorld T-shirt?

      (Or will you be using your own?)

      …and remember sunny, no matter what the presenter says, dont take off the veil.

      (p.s. - thanks for the press release!)

    25. Khanu — on 9th November, 2006 at 6:22 pm  

      Sunny - remember to wear your sharpest suit and flashy bow tie!

    26. El Cid — on 9th November, 2006 at 6:28 pm  

      Shame I’m cutting back on costs to pay for my huge new mortgage. I haven’t had sky for months. Go on, someone put it up on youtube!
      Re Britney, well… you could say how the whole episode epitomises the shallow and callous celebrity-obsessed world we live in. Sounds intelligent anyway. First she texts him her divorce notice and second we’re obsessed with the whole story (at least I was. shame the restraining order still applies).
      Sigh. Makes you want to join al-Qaeda.

    27. Refresh — on 9th November, 2006 at 6:42 pm  

      Good luck Sunny,

      will try to get back in time to watch.

      On the Israel thing - don’t bother with the middle ground. Keeping quiet about it isn’t improving things.

    28. Don — on 9th November, 2006 at 7:28 pm  

      Kismet,

      Ekklesia are tossers. Rememberance day is not a christian festival and they don’t get to make the rules. Also, redemption without blood is scarcely a christian position.

      On Israel/Palestine, maybe we could suggest you only raise it if you have something new to say?

    29. sabinaahmed — on 9th November, 2006 at 7:34 pm  

      Vow Sunny, all the best.Are you going to wave and say hello to all of us?

      Good Luck Sunny,am sure you will be fine. We all will be watching you and if necessory shouting at you!

    30. Amrit — on 9th November, 2006 at 8:38 pm  

      WOW, I’M HUNDAL-WATCHING NOW!

    31. Chairwoman — on 9th November, 2006 at 8:41 pm  

      Me too!

    32. sabinaahmed — on 9th November, 2006 at 8:48 pm  

      I wondered if Sunny had to go into “make up” and had foundation etc; applied, as the beloved leader TB does?

    33. Jagdeep — on 9th November, 2006 at 8:51 pm  

      My wife says Hundal looks like a kameena

      It’s that Mexican gangster style goatee

      Well done Hundal

    34. Refresh — on 9th November, 2006 at 8:52 pm  

      How can she say that? He looks such sweet boy.

    35. Chairwoman — on 9th November, 2006 at 9:02 pm  

      Sabinaahmed - At least a dab of Max Factor Creme Puff :-)

    36. Clairwil — on 9th November, 2006 at 9:07 pm  

      Pah!
      I’ve only got council telly so I didn’t see the Hundal in action. Please tell me someone is going to put it up on you tube. Did he say ‘Hello Picklers’ on the telly?

    37. Sunny — on 9th November, 2006 at 9:17 pm  

      Hello! The Hundal is back. I’m sorry I couldn’t get ‘tequila’ in there somewhere though I was composing a line about immigrant workers being allowed to come here to increase tequila output but the debate wasn’t long enough :(

      Yes, ahem, they did put a bit of max factor on me. :|

      Abnd I hope no one puts it on youtube! It’ll only end up spawning endless silly parodies. I can see it now :evil:

      By the way, I quite like the Ekklesia crew, and Simon Barrow, part of the think-tank, runs a blog that has more on this:
      http://faithinsociety.blogspot.com/

    38. Clairwil — on 9th November, 2006 at 9:34 pm  

      Oh Sunny, you must have felt like a movie star as they attacked you with a powder puff. Are you going to become a Scientologist and have children with absurd names?

    39. PFM — on 9th November, 2006 at 10:15 pm  

      silk shirt what were you thinking?

      you know sunny when i first met you, you sounded like such a freshy.

      ‘vun day i vil be famus and on the teevee’ loooooooool

      but im glad you sound more ‘english’ now! and you were like

      lol @ powder puff

      hey you may be skin head but ive seen the bald patch!

    40. Clairwil — on 9th November, 2006 at 10:40 pm  

      Oh the hell with it all! Can we have an open thread?
      I want to act the goat.

    41. Clairwil — on 9th November, 2006 at 10:41 pm  

      Every time I leave a comment I get this error message

      Regex ID: 10327 (grannies) appears to be an invalid regex string! Please fix it in the Blacklist control panel.
      Regex ID: 10420 (granny) appears to be an invalid regex string! Please fix it in the Blacklist control panel.

      What can it all mean?

    42. PFM — on 9th November, 2006 at 11:21 pm  

      it means get off the net and do the dishes ;)

      (only joking dont kill me)

    43. Nyrone — on 10th November, 2006 at 4:17 am  

      shit I missed it!
      anyone have a video?

    44. Kismet Hardy — on 10th November, 2006 at 9:48 am  

      Claiwil I get that too. I’m guessing the granny is less to do with Old Pickler lurking in the bushes and more to do with the freaky granny pictures that keep appearing (and yes, I do look through them). And there’s this woman called Belinda Cockbox that keeps hounding me. If you go to my blog, she’s on the ‘test’ thread. She fucks horses

    45. sabinaahmed — on 10th November, 2006 at 10:40 am  

      Chairwoman
      In my opinion the “creampuff” or the Max factor “panstick” was a tad too pale for Sunnys complexion.I thought he looked paler than he should have.

    46. Kismet Hardy — on 10th November, 2006 at 10:41 am  

      Sunny’s getting whiter by the day…

    47. Sahil — on 10th November, 2006 at 11:00 am  

      Video!!! I didn’t get to see it!! Hope it went well.

    48. Chairwoman — on 10th November, 2006 at 11:36 am  

      Katy has told me that Sunny’s tall (taller than her, and she’s tall), but he looked absolutely miniscule next to the presenter. Is the presenter ginormous, was he on some sort of podium, or had they placed Sunny in a pit? Your views would be welcome :-)

    49. Chairwoman — on 10th November, 2006 at 11:39 am  

      sabinaahmed - I assumed his paller was the result of nerves. Let’s hope it was an over-zealous make-up person rather than a trip down the Michael Jackson route.

    50. Jagdeep — on 10th November, 2006 at 11:57 am  

      The presenter praised Pickled Politics he said it was excellent.

    51. Jai — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:10 pm  

      =>”Sunny’s getting whiter by the day…..”

      …..said the Uncle to the Auntieji as they shook their heads disapprovingly about “badmaash second-generation Indians these days”.

      Sunny,

      Very good to see you “in action”. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one here cheering you on ;)

      Overall you did fine, don’t worry.

      And I kept waiting for you to say “Tequila”. Is that why you were squinting at the camera and smirking just after one of the commerical breaks ?

      =>”It’s that Mexican gangster style goatee”

      Sunny’s obviously going for the Latin American Drug Baron look. Mister Miami Vice :)

    52. Jagdeep — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:13 pm  

      Hundal, my missus is right — you wouldnt look out of place in a Cypress Hill video.

    53. Kismet Hardy — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:14 pm  

      If the world were to go suddenly mad…

      Sunny’s getting waiter by the day: Sunny gives it all up to work in local Indian takeawau

      Sunny’s getting quieter everyday: Sunny decides to keep all his opinions to himself

      Sunny’s getting water by the day: I dunno, some new fangled diet where he drinks water in the day and blood by night

      Sunny’s getting goater by the day: if you’re still reading this, you really are as bored as I am

    54. Jai — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:16 pm  

      =>”you wouldnt look out of place in a Cypress Hill video.”

      I think Sunny should start dropping the phrase “La Raza” into his everyday conversation and say “mang” at every opportunity.

    55. Kismet Hardy — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:23 pm  

      Did someone say open thread? I had a nightmare last night. I was in that twilight zone episode, you know the one where everything stops except you? Now, it would be a dream if I could do what I wanted to do. Touch a few boobies, steal lots of stuff, move things around with hilarious consequences for those when they woke from their trance etc. But it was a nightmare because my girlfriend was with me. No, I’m not going to touch her boobs and neither are you, she said. No, I’m not going to steal that plasma TV and nor can you cos you can’t drive.

      The horror. Being in power to do anything you want and being stuck with a moral consciounce that won’t let you do anything

    56. Kismet Hardy — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:26 pm  

      I also spoil my flying dreams by getting vertigo :-(

    57. Jagdeep — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:32 pm  

      Yeah lets use this as an open thread, I just feeling like dossing about this afternoon.

      So I’m going to watch Borat this weekend.

    58. Kismet Hardy — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:37 pm  

      Ooh let’s play the Borat game. I’m not sure what the rules are but it should involve offending someone

      Pickled Politics it eez good place for man with no what you call it clue to come and show he eez well endowed in the brain by using the google and do the copy and pasting from the bbc and the donkey porn then he get wife big and fat like julie burchill, yes?

    59. Jagdeep — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:39 pm  

      I’ve been driven in mini cabs by blokes who look and sound similar to Borat

    60. Kismet Hardy — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:39 pm  

      Punjabi man they eez big and they eez hairy, like a bull’s, what you call, anus. I like to lick a bull’s anus. You like to lick the bull’s anus? It eez very nice. It taste like Bacardi

    61. Kismet Hardy — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:43 pm  

      Man from Sylhet, he eez very bad smell, like of onions, and he eez in love with the gaylord, and he say ten thousand apologies and I say, well I am counting you only say apology once ha ha you can not count Man from Sylhet with onion testicles

    62. Jagdeep — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:44 pm  

      That’s exactly what a mini cab driver said to me the other day.

    63. Jai — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:45 pm  

      I theeenk we should play Throw the Gujju Down the Well.

    64. Vikrant — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:51 pm  

      Down with Malaria :( :( :(

    65. Kismet Hardy aka Bharat — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:52 pm  

      My name is name after Motherland but I call it Fatherland because father breastfeed me as child. I have funny joke for you about Gujju Down The Well. I say to very old ill Gujju man: How does it feel knowing you are going to die soon you old ill Gujju man? But he cannot say answer because I have rifle in his mouth

    66. Jai — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:53 pm  

      Kismet you sound more like Tony Montana than Borat.

    67. soru — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:53 pm  

      What people don’t realise is that Sunny doesn’t actually exist, he is just a character created by Sacha B Cohen under heavy make-up.

      So far, the joke of coming out with disturbingly sensible and sane opinions and fliming how people react hasn’t really paid off, so he has to throw in a few more obvious gags as his ‘kismet’ character to keep the show going.

    68. Kismet Hardy aka Bharat — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:56 pm  

      I once say to Gujju man, “Gujju man you are stupid.”

      Gujju man get much offence and says “no Bharat man, I am not stupid”

      So I say to Gujju man: “Punch my hand”

      I placing hand on wall, and gujju man make to punch my hand but I move my hand so he smash his fist on wall.

      “Bloody hell” says Gujju man “I am stupid”

      Soon, Gujju man see other gujju man and say: “Gujju brother. We are stupid”

      “Shut up” retort other gujju man

      “I prove it to you” says Gujju man. But he cannot find wall. So he put his hand on his face and say: “Punch my hand”

    69. Kismet Hardy aka Bharat — on 10th November, 2006 at 12:58 pm  

      Soru you are like lumpy gonnorhea in wet beef curtain of joy

      Kismet, what granny keeps appearing? Is it the highland granny recognisable from her two big tits and hairy fanny? That Cockbox is a live one she’ll do owt for ten pence. My friend the Ill man has asked me tell you that he is a fan of yours.

      Yes Patsy I intend to fellate a Muslim on his front lawn by way of celebration. Any takers?

      Sunny tall? Hmmmm…*thinks back to meeting him in a pub near Bond street*, I’d say about 6 foot?

      Actually Leon, that’s what Katy estimated.

      Thanks for the plug, Sunny. We (Ekklesia) like PP too, whatever you think of our comments about poppies (missed your Sky appearance, unfortunately). What we did say has, of course, been fairly widely misconstrued from our POV (see: http://www.ekklesia.co.uk/content/news_syndication/article_061111media.shtml). We weren’t claiming that Remembrance Day was a Christian event, either - though it is heavily loaded with Christian as well as military symbolism, and our point (made originally to a church audience, before being picked up elsewhere) was that this needed some real critiquing. We’ve also done a book [Consuming Passion] examining Christian sacrificial language and its relation to the legitimation of violence.. so you may still think we’re ‘tossers’, Don, but we have done some serious work on this. Oh, and I love the Fun Lovin’ Criminals take. That I *will* by. Big up to the PP crew, anyway ;-)

      PS. FWIW, here is a rather more detailed reflection: ‘Giving peace a chance proves highly controversial‘

    80. Don — on 12th November, 2006 at 4:25 pm  

      Simon,

      I used the term ‘tossers’ as a casual descriptor for all those who seek to bring their personal religious beliefs to bear on the public sphere. Nothing personal, and I appreciate the considered reply.

      ‘Big up to the PP crew’. You don’t actually have to talk that way. Nobody else around here does.

      I have spent some time exploring your site and, while I remain in opposition, I would welcome your engagement in debates here and will (probably) be more courteous should you choose to do so.

    81. Simon Barrow — on 13th November, 2006 at 8:13 am  

      Er, slight irony defecit on your part here, Don! - the “big up” was a *joke*… er, the wink was meant to be a clue.

      Read ‘Redeeming Religion in the Public Square’ on Ekklesia. You’ll see that we’re arguing for an end to establishment, etc. Everyone has a right to speak in the public sphere, whatever their convictions. That’s what makes it public. The issue is not to seek or defend special privilege - whether you’re religious or not.

      I do watch PP regularly. Not so much time to participate, but Sunny and I keep in touch.

      Best wishes, S.
