Euthanasia: Katie Hopkins

Katie Hopkins is "super-keen on euthanasia vans" and says there are "far too many old people".

The media personality said told the Radio Times: "We just have far too many old people.

"It's ridiculous to be living in a country where we can put dogs to sleep but not people."

Asked for her solution, she said: "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.

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

On obesity she told Michael Buerk: “You’re fat because you eat too much and don’t exercise,” she says, of obese people “End of. My dream job would be to sit in the doctor’s surgery, ticking them off. ‘Get a grip, you fat b*****d. Stop eating and get out there and walk.”
