    "Sending us Ebola bombs in the form of sweaty Glaswegians just isn't cricket."

    "Pauline Cafferkey, a public health nurse at Blantyre Health Centre in South Lanarkshire, has been receiving specialist treatment at the Royal Free Hospital in north London".

    "Hopkins' comments came after it emerged that the nurse, who volunteered to help Save the Children in the fight against Ebola, was diagnosed on her return from Sierra Leone."

    Pauline Cafferkey is now in a critical condition.

    Vile, publicity-desperate waste of space that really isn't even worthy of discussion.

    Can't believe the police are reportedly investigating her comments.

    Everyone can see her for what she is.

    Hocus Eye. Snap, crop, scrap crap

    That nurse is very sick, but not as sick as the Hopkins person.

    She's a fixed part of the equation, a pointless shit drip. Her constant spewage does though say a lot about the broadcasters and newspapers who pay her. What was it Stewart Lee said about Clarkson - 'the racist views which he holds, for money'.

    Then maybe don't join a discussion about her?

    Me too, though I'd have no objection to her finding her way into a locked room full of Glaswegians.

    Pauline is a very very brave woman and exemplifies the best of human kind

    btw, the Mail was also going on about these volunteers bringing 'danger' back to the U.K

    Ugh, do we have to?
    Being talked about is her reason d'ĂȘtre, do you we have to indulge the cretin?

    Jon-of-arc Trigger warning - BANG!

    It is shit that the police have become involved, no matter how utterly hideous KH and every contrived controversial opinion (Wilf "that's printed every single week for money") she manages to spout actually are, when you start to even contemplate criminalising the act of telling a shit & sick joke that incorporates a mildly offensive stereotype, you are blurring the line between "hate speech" and "being a knob", which is a fairly useful distinction to make. IMO, obvs.

    I agree although her celebrity will probably ensure that she is not prosecuted while ordinary people texting this stuff increasingly fall victim to our state's policing of twitter

    JHE .

    Recently on some daft TV prog Hopkins was rude to some fat people. One of them stormed off in high dudgeon to phone the police in the belief that Hopkins had committed a "hate crime". This is where we have got to: people believe that comments they find offensive are criminal.
     
  16. Wilf

    Wilf Aghast.

    Nah, I don't think they think the comments are unambiguously criminal, they are dealing with shit in an era where equality campaigns have been taken over and sanitized by personnel departments and opportunistic lawyers. Can't say I agree with people who go to plod when the likes of Hopkins spew this stuff out, but they are just using whatever tool is available to get back at her. I doubt that the complainants themselves really believe this should be about the criminal law.

    Hopkins is boring and tedious, and the sooner she fucks up her controversial cash cow formula by going too far to be able to continue booking media slots, the better.

    You would have assumed that her comments re: Palestinians would have done that, she seems to be posh enough to be able to say whatever she wants short of an actual racial slur and still get invited on to This Morning etc

    Reads like a double racist joke to me. Poor.

    I don't know how she lives with herself. How does she cope with those 3am moments of utter shame.

    Well the straightforward answer to that is of course she doesn't have them. People can be addicted to fame as well as anything else, I would guess that the first time she said anything mildly controversial she became hooked on the response and has been trying to trigger something as satisfying again but has to try harder each time.

    Best not to dwell.

  23. It stops being offensive the moment you realise she's just trolling pathetically.

    I think she must. It's really unusual behaviour though.

    Not that unusual! Look at all the dickheads who get off on upsetting people on here for examples of the same mindset. She's just ninjaboy given a national platform.

    Wait a few years for her "I was on smack, cocaine and benzo's" shame tell-all. I can't believe anyone could be naturally like that.

    Surely the only thing we should feel for her is pity, it must be dreadful to have to rely on people's loathing to make you feel good.
