Katie Hopkins

Banned from Twitter for telling the truth, should it not be Piers Morgan getting the ban for telling lies? Just a thought.

You've answered your own question, why should it be hidden when it has taken place. Just because it doesn't suit everyone's agenda.

I do not understand what you are saying
I have not answered my own question


What was the truth that caused her to be banned?


I can easily understand that it is full of prejudiced views

But I would like to understand how someone can "justify" something hateful because it is the truth

"Today is #whiteoutwednesday. I will shortly be posting a picture of my arse. Thank you."

I can't see anything hateful in that

Is that really the tweet that triggered her banning


I dont see it as hateful

I dont understand it, but it is probably just stupid

Indeed they were obviously just looking for an excuse to placate the 75,000 who petition for her demise not listening to her 1.1 million followers. I don't agree with everything she says but when she says something it is nearer the truth than that which comes from the left-wing press. For the risk of dragging up old sores, I was banned from DotNet (14 years ago apparently) for saying "That's the trouble with this country, you can't call a spade a spade" apparently it's very funny if a lefty says it, but if a righty says it it is, banned for life. Another case of they couldn't wait to get rid of me, just looking for an excuse.

When you refer to the left wing press' which newspapers are you referring to?

You've said many times that you never read the guardian

So it does not leave many

The mirror is always outsold by the sun and probably the mail and like them is more of a comic

That only leaves the independent and observer?

All massively outsold by the propaganda by the right wing press all owned by tax evading billionaires all lobbying FL

By press I should have said media BBC, ITV, C4, Sky have all been vociferous in their opposition to the government certainly The Times which I read seven days a week has voiced its opposition to this government, not saying they’d want a Labour government, but perhaps they find Johnson and his cohorts too far to the right.

She's an attention seeker who peddles hate, there's absolutely no doubt about that! We'll done Twitter, she should not be given a platform & has been stirring up trouble for too long.

Maybe you should all stop reading and listening to these vociferous and biased (allegedly) publications and media outlets.

You should have gone after listing Meatspin but for some reason you got a reprieve.

Then you ******* it yourself.

So stop bloody whinging
