With a face that would scare a pack of starving wolves off the back of a meat truck (think Howard Stern with blonde hair), British feminist Katie Hopkins, no stranger to controversial comments, declared that old people should be euthanized like dogs, with euthanasia vans going neighborhood to neighborhood terminating senior citizens.
In his latest interview for the Radio Times, newsreader Michael Buerk admits – rather sheepishly -that he had actually started to like Katie Hopkins, reports the Daily Mail.
Right up until she told him, in not so many words, that she wished he was dead.
‘We just have far too many old people,’ she said, looking the 69-year-old up and down after he enquired about her latest TV venture, If Katie Hopkins Ruled The World.
Did he know that one in three NHS beds was being blocked by the elderly and demented? That a third of our hospitals are filled up by people who apparently don’t even know they’re there?
Motor-mouthed TV personality Katie, 40, who is famous for her extreme opinions, was interviewed by Buerk ahead of the launch of the new TV panel show set to air on TLC next month.
And if Katie Hopkins did rule the world?
Well, she’d soon put a stop to old people like her interviewer taking up hospital beds.
‘It’s ridiculous to be living in a country where we can put dogs to sleep but not people.’ she says. Her solution? ‘Easy. Euthanasia vans – just like ice-cream vans – that would come to your home.
‘It would all be perfectly charming. They might even have a nice little tune they’d play.
‘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.’
