What's the ugliest
Part of your body?
What's the ugliest
Part of your body?
Some say your nose
Some say your toes
But I think it's YOUR MIND
I think it's your mind, woo woo

Not such a Jolly Good Sheow now, eh Dave?
Ignore professional motormouth Katie Hopkins, they said. Everyone will lose interest if you do, they said. Don’t feed the troll, they said. So lots of people ignored her, and as a result, er, the Sun was so pleased with her racist incitement against refugees that they put it out there on SunNation in a desperate bid to drive traffic. And LBC, to their eternal shame, gave her her own show, so she could Carry On Inciting.

As Simon Usborne put it, “In the environment that led to creation of the Third Reich in Germany, Polish people were seen as ‘an East European species of cockroach’, while Jews were rats. When Hutu extremists used radio propaganda to incite violence against the Tutsis during the Rwandan Genocide, they called on people to ‘weed out the cockroaches’”. That is how loaded her hate speech is.

Her chosen political party, the Tories, may not be so happy, though: the photo of Ms Hopkins with an equally smiling Young Dave is being widely disseminated, and in the meantime Pope Francis’ concern at the loss of life in the Med has been echoed by Mil The Younger, who has urged that EU countries “Restart The Rescue” in view of the refugee situation and recent loss of life. What does Dave do now?
[UPDATE 21 April 1850 hours: following a report to the Metropolitan Police from the Society of Black Lawyers - you can see the details HERE - the Police have stated "we can confirm we have received allegations of incitement of racial hatred following the Sun article dated 17th April. The matter has been passed to Assistant Commissioner Patricia Gallan (specialist crime and operation directorate) for consideration".
There have thus far been no arrests. So now the cops are involved. Meanwhile, Ms Hopkins' Twitter feed has been uncharacteristically silent - the last entry is from Sunday. Why might that be? You might wish to ask that. I couldn't possibly comment]
Just circulate that photo of Dave in DJ alongside his fellow compassionate Conservative while the latest disaster in the Med.is still in voters' minds.
Katie Hopkins is to the right of virtually everyone (including UKIP) on this so Labour could start being the nasty party & use the shot in a party political or on billboards. That would really scare Crosby.
Rather than sign any meaningless petition which you know the Sun is going to milk as a stance for free speech (a stance I actually agree with), the far more damaging angle is the Hopkins = The Sun = Tory. Labour won't use it officially because it's far too crass - but everyone else can.
Here we have Hopkins=The Sub= Cameron. Aren't there plenty of crass connections made by The Sun and The Mail where Labour's concerned - often, one suspects, with the approval of Conservative Central Office?
At this stage of the campaign it's important that "everyone else" actually gets to see it.
When the press were slavering for a Royal wedding, they adopted "Waity Katie" as a nickname for Miss Middleton. Time to recycle it as "Hatey Katie"?
The trouble is, too many people gave her attention back when they should have been ignoring her. Every time she spouted her latest turgid brain-fart of an opinion it was inevitably met with columns in the Guardian and the Indy that while also decrying her also had a kind of voyeuristic "Oh look how awful she is" quality to them.
Not only did this give her even more publicity, but there is an inevitable knock-on effect where many otherwise normal, decent people who would otherwise find her opinions repugnant will have decided that anyone who winds up the likes of Owen Jones (or whichever other openly left-wing opinion writer they dislike the most) can't be all bad, normalising her bile as being acceptable to them.

I share view that with Hopkins a borderline sociopath it's the people who publish her who maybe need a long think about their lives."
Je ne suis pas Katie Hopkins?
First and hopefully last time Franz Zappa is mentioned on the same page as that hateful woman.
It appears that plod are starting to take an interest in the outpourings of La Hopkins. Not before time.Hope they will be dropping in at the Sun as well.
And have LBC deigned to comment on her employment with them? Are their advertisers happy to be associated with someone happy to see thousands drown?
