Poem about British right-winger Katie Hopkins

Katie Hopkins Racial Stereotypes

11 July 2012

Radio Scotland interview with an English ‘business woman’ who also appears to be a self-appointed spokesperson for all that is English. In this part of the interview she lets fly at both Andy Murray and a caller who is Welsh and is living in England. You may remember this woman from the TV programme The Apprentice, where her right-wing outspoken views ruffled a few feathers. She is both quintessentially ‘English’ and outrageous in equal amounts – the very embodiment of imperialism that made England what it used to be.

Katie Hopkins from England, sometimes Rupert Murdoch tabloid employee, sometimes television personality, is famous ‘for being famous’ and infamous for racism.

This poem is by British poet Benjamin Myers:

    CAMPAIGN group Hope Not Hate has set up a petition calling on the Daily Mail to stop giving column inches to the poisonous views of anti-refugee bigot Katie Hopkins.

    Ms Hopkins intends to report from Italy, where she has joined a group of far-right activists who plan to block humanitarian efforts to rescue refugees in the Mediterranean, the charity warned.

    Having raised £100,000, the Defend Europe group has acquired a ship which it is sending to Sicily in order to block and “confront” rescues by non-governmental organisations, it said.

    On Monday night, Ms Hopkins told Twitter: “En route to Italy for MailOnline — as Italy threatens to release 200,000 migrants into Europe to teach us to share nicely.”

    Defend Europe has featured on ITV’s Good Morning Britain and on BBC’s Newsnight — but neither revealed the fact that the organisation is made up of prominent far-right anti-Muslim activists, Hope Not Hate cautioned.

    A Hope Not Hate spokesperson said: “Hope Not Hate believes that Mail Online has a duty not to amplify the cheerleading of far-right extremist activity that could ultimately lead to the loss of lives.”
