She must have been getting short of money, so thought up another ridiculous statement.
Will you be queuing up for the euthanasia van? grin

Teetime Tue 28-Jul-15 09:28:02

probably if it doesn't stop raining soon!

glammanana Tue 28-Jul-15 09:37:07

It keeps her in the lime light though doesn't it ? why would any one bother with her if she didn't make these stupid comments ?

annsixty Tue 28-Jul-15 09:38:49

Some days definitely!! However to be serious the woman just craves publicity and will go to any lengths to get it. What a twisted mind she must have.

Elegran Tue 28-Jul-15 09:45:07

I hpe she has her seat in it booked. I see from Wikipedia that she was born in February 1975. Do you think that forty and a half would be a good cut-off age for her?

Luckygirl Tue 28-Jul-15 09:54:29

Katie who?

merlotgran Tue 28-Jul-15 09:58:14

She's the same age as my younger daughter but looks about ten years older.

If she kills off the current batch of oldies, she'll be top of the list for the next lot. grin

Be careful what you wish for!

How about a euthanasia van for worthless wastes of space? Katie, they're coming to get you. grin

Nelliemoser Tue 28-Jul-15 10:10:19

Evil minded ? What ever description you feel is right. Cows are too nice to be insulted by comparison.

She is such a silly woman I can't believe she was ever in an A stream or B stream or C stream…

Ana Tue 28-Jul-15 10:16:33

Jeremy Paxman voiced a similar opinion nearly a year ago...

A Dignitas on every street corner

Mind you, if I was going to be compulsorily subjected to a slightly out-of-tune tinkly version of Greensleeves like an ice cream van chime, I might eagerly welcome death.

thatbags Tue 28-Jul-15 10:47:51

The difference between euthanasia and assisted dying, as at Dignitas, is huge. Don't confuse the two. One is imposed (no choice), the other is self-chosen, wanted in fact, when one is ready.

rosesarered Tue 28-Jul-15 10:53:49

Should we bother even debating what Katie Hopkins says?

Ana Tue 28-Jul-15 10:56:11

You're right of course thatbags. Still, the rest of Paxman's stand-up piece is pretty insulting to 'old people'!

thatbags Tue 28-Jul-15 11:00:18

I didn't hear or read that speech, ana. I daresay it was insulting to old people. The twerp will be old himself one day. In fact, he's old now. Not very old but definitely old. May his bones creak and his sinews rot, the daft bugger wink

thatbags Tue 28-Jul-15 11:01:48

Not that I don't agree that we should have a Dignitas equivalent here. I think we should, but perhaps it's not necessary on every street corner which was presumably said for 'effect'. Daft bugger it is then.

thatbags Tue 28-Jul-15 11:02:36

Which epithet also applies to That Woman, naturally.

Anya Tue 28-Jul-15 11:03:39

Greensleaves, tinkly and only slightly out of tune would be an improvement on the ice cream vans around here. Sounds quite quaint compared with a strident and very out-of-tune Yankee Doodle Dandy.

I'm trying to picture what these Euphanasia Vans might look like hmm

Would they be plain White so as not to attract attention? Or plastered in adverts to drum up more business 'Dying to meet you' 'Free 12 month quote' 'Satisfaction Guaranteed' 'Buy One Get One Free'

And would we get a free 99 with flake?

Mamie Tue 28-Jul-15 11:24:09

Maybe pop music of the time? So when we hear "She Loves You" we will know it's us.
"Come in 1968, your time is up". hmm

HildaW Tue 28-Jul-15 12:17:28

She reminds me of the sort of annoying children that your Mother would tell you to 'ignore and then they'll go away'. Hence I cannot even be bothered to ever look up what she has spouted of late.

merlotgran Tue 28-Jul-15 13:21:15

Anyone booking a Warner Leisure break will need to look very closely at the car park before getting their bags out of the boot.

Anya Tue 28-Jul-15 13:28:58

Merlot and be especially wary if the 'Leisure Break' has been bought for you by the kids.

Anya Tue 28-Jul-15 13:34:07

And if the ice cream van is playing 'Save the Last Dance'..?..
