One-woman controversy machine Katie Hopkins is "super-keen" on euthanasia vans

“They might even have a nice little tune they’d play.”

SUN COLUMNIST AND perpetual Tweetrage generator Katie Hopkins is at it again.

Speaking to Michael Buerk (of all people) in the Radio Times, the former Apprentice contestant said she’d like to see a world where the elderly were given similar treatment to dogs.

Euthanasia vans could visit them offering a peaceful death, she told the veteran broadcaster.

“They might even have a nice little tune they’d play,” Hopkins said.

I mean this genuinely. I’m super-keen on euthanasia vans. We need to accept that just because medical advances mean we can live longer, it’s not necessarily the right thing to do.

“It’s ridiculous to be living in a country where we can put dogs to sleep but not people.”

In her defence, Buerk had asked her what she’d do “if Katie Hopkins ruled the world”. Perhaps he should have known better.

Hopkins, by the way, also had some choice words for the obese:

“You’re fat because you eat too much and don’t do exercise.

“End of. My dream job would be to sit in the doctor’s surgery, ticking them off. ‘Get a grip, you fat bastard. Stop eating and get out there and walk.’ ”

Hopkins, you may recall, previously hit the headlines for calling migrants “cockroaches” and for these pretty incendiary tweets about Ebola.

The entire list of controversies she’s provoked is far too long to list here in fact – but this is a pretty comprehensive list.
