She's offended lots of different groups mate, not just Pakistani's. Maybe you'd have to be in one of those groups to understand.

She tries to offend everyone, and will do anything to make a news headline. I just find her embarrassing really. Feeds off the attention.

Hmm dunno. I would imagine she's quite popular with Daily Mail and the readers of her column in The Sun. She's definitely an oddball. I didn't watch the Apprentice when she was on it, but I bet it was funny.

From what I recall of her stint on The Apprentice she was devious, manipulative and largely pretty awful, but was scarcely unique in that regard - she wasn't quite, I don't think, the grotesque that she's subsequently become. She obviously decided that she could make a decent career out of being a professional troll, and fair play to her, she's living the dream. Its a bit depressing that a national newspaper decided to provide her with that sort of a platform, but then the organ that employs her and the term "journalistic integrity" are rarely to be found in the same sentence. For the most part I'm just inclined to ignore the old windbag.

One my several very menial jobs is vetting aggregated news stories that go on to appear on the home page of a very popular website. I always click 'no' for stories about her guff, EVEN WHEN IT'S PROBABLY TECHNICALLY AGAINST THE RULES!!!

I'm a mad bad rebel deep inside of the belly of the beast, fighting the good fight, and winnowing down her traffic click bait quotient one fraction of a percentage point at a time, and after I've left her career dead in the water I intend to target the Kardashians, holding them to ransom and only approving stories about them in return for a cut of their earnings, sordid sexual favours, and/or life coaching from Kanye.

My life is pretty much one big episode of Black Mirror, when you think about it.

Katie Hopkins saying something stupid for the millionth time in her life is less worrisome than a politician reporting a public figure to the police for an opinion they posted on Twitter I think.

I don't know. From what I read she basically implied that Rochdale Council shouldn't acknowledge their Pakistani residents purely because of the sex abuse scandal. Essentially claiming that every Pakistani male was guilty. It was clearly a potential case for 'inciting racial hatred'

She's basically a one woman 'Talksport' spout crap and then get paid when people complain to give her notoriety.

TalkSport take it in from texts and phone call charges and she gets asked to go on This Morning.

Not sure who's worse those who get upset with her trolling or the people who actually agree with her.

I'm ashamed to admit that I would take up arms to defend this bigoted old scumbag's right to express her disgusting opinions.
My opinion of her is that she's an untalented, divisive and, let's be honest about it, a somewhat unattractive woman. If she needed a rectum transplant, I fear that the chosen arsehole would reject her.

But she is entitled to her opinions and, to be fair, it is these opinions that identify her for the benefit of the aforementioned arseholes.

So I stand, alone if necessary, and say steadfastly.... "Katie! You continue! There are many of us who strongly support your right to embarrass yourself with your repugnant, outdated and vicious verbal abuse of other people! It is a fundamental human right to be allowed to be an odious shit!"

Not a fan of KH but she does have a point regarding the raising of the Pakistani flag in Rochdale, seems a kick in the face to all the victims of Pakistani grooming in the area. That guy who called the police on her Simon something, was talking about community cohesion and the like on Twitter. I notice today that a family trying to join Isis caught in Turkey were from Rochdale . Doesn't seem to be much 'community cohesion'.

The gangs of men happened to be Pakistani, the men and their crimes should be abhorred, not their country.

It's like all of those Pakistani tv presenters, celebrities and MPs who have been dredged up by operation Yewtree and the like.

Oh. Hang on.

Remind me again. Was it all the Pakistani's in Rochdale that were involved in the grooming?

She was debating with Robbie Savage last night. The topic was dementia. Didn't catch it all but Hopkins disclosed she suffers from epilepsy.

If 50 or so active members on the non-league sub-forum here continue to react to B2TF's profound musings, then it doesn't give me much hope that 60 million Britons will stop taking Katie Hopkins' bait.

I caught some of that. She was in absolutely full on trolling mode. Basically the message she was putting across was that people should have the right to chose to end their life rather than decay for years in a hospital bed. Terry Pratchett campaigned for the same thing.

But she went in on the 'People with dementia are bed-blockers' and implied that she believed that they should be put down, while not actually stating that.

Savage's angle was basically, because he wouldn't have wanted his dad to do that (and would have gone against his wishes had he made that choice before he was ill) that basically it shouldn't be an option.

I dunno, I'm not sure raising the British flag is a kick in the face to all of Harold Shipman's victims. Pakistan flag is actually quite cool. Looks far nicer than the Union flag, that's for sure. I'd be happy to fly it over my town hall.

He wants to send them back to a Pentapolis in south-western Levant comprising of the five city-states of Gaza, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Ekron, and Gath, from Wadi Gaza in the south to the Yarqon River in the north, but with no fixed border to the east?
