Katie Hopkins

April 29, 2012

Twitter was on fire yesterday discussing Katie Hopkins’ comments about disability benefits. Here they are, from her blog, and they’re awful:

I am fairly certain if the privilege of state support was handed out at the top of a good few flights of stairs, far fewer claimants would bother to pitch up. Equally, I am sure a good few of the disability benefit masses would jog on up there with a spring in their step.

And this from a person who has epilepsy!

In response, I say: Those disability benefit claimants who are lucky enough to be able to take a footstep would limp up flights of stairs, holding rails, to get their benefits if they had to.That’s what you do when you have no other way to eat.

    Vile piece of writing. Would like her to come talk to my hubby how his life was totally ruined over span of 4 days, disability can happen to anyone. Hubby paid over 47 years of taxes, me over 25 yrs , I would like to work, would she like to come and relieve me of my duties for a few days, see how she can manage with very little sleep, loss of freedom and no money to do anything to alleviate the boredom, stress, and no end to it all feelings. I am very angry.

    what an awful person this is, wow what venom..if she was I’ll and no prospect of recovery like myself I’d love to know how long she thinks savings could last…

    She hates paying for other peoples kids well lucky her for her partner not doing one after her child’s birth, lucky her for not being a victim of abuse…

    I can’t even call this thing a woman or a human being because you have to have heart to be human…

    A little lesson in economics, even benefit claimants pay taxes, pay wages and generate wealth into the economy..I do hope you pay for your kids education Katie, and paid for their births otherwise that means you are using the same resources as us benefit claimants…

    Karma will get you and get you good, you’ll see…

    I have known MANY fake claimants to SSD and I know of 2 who really deserved them, of the ones who got it…the 2 who were really deserved them spent over $2000 and lawyers to get them, yet the 8 or so I know who do not deserve them, just walked into SS and got them…cuddo’s to Katie for stating the freaking obvious…only those who don’t deserve them get them…quit whining and get a grip…if you are really disabled, learn from our government, get a job and THEN claim you can’t work, you are automatically getting SSD!!! or be a minority or a majority with a “discrimination” tag and your in…

      You are not even living in our country so you have no right whatsoever to comment do you!!! Especially from a country where you would see families living in cars because a parent got cancer and could not afford the health costs!!
