Ghastly non-entity Katie Hopkins tells the world she judges children by their names

ITV’s ‘This Morning’ descended into something resembling farce as aspirational reality show non-entity and staggeringly unpleasant human being Katie Hopkins told the world that she judged children on the basis of their names. Pompously declaring that she “didn’t like” children with "lower class” names such as Charmaine, Chantelle, Chardonnay and Tyler, she revealed that she won’t let her children play with anyone who has such a name.

“A name, for me, is a short way of working out what class that child comes from,” Hopkins said. “[And I can decide from that] do I want my child to play with them?”

Hopkins, who is only on television because of her penchant for appearing on reality shows, which, as everyone knows are bastions of classy elegance didn’t stop there. No – it wasn’t just a matter of class apparently

“It's not just class...There’s a whole set of things that go with children like that. They are quite a disruptive influence at school. That’s why I don’t like those sort of children,” Hopkins said, adding that such kids probably didn’t do their homework and were unlikely to have “good prospects”.

She said: "I target children that I think will be a good influence and curtail friendships with children I think will drag them down."

Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield could barely contain their spluttering outrage, with Holly unable to stop herself wading into the debate.

A fascinating insight into Hopkins’ intellect came when she insisted that she despised “geographical names” like Brooklyn or London, before Schofield inquired as to whether one of her daughters was named India. “That’s not related to a place,” Hopkins said.

Ignorant, judgemental and rude, Jenkins seemed unable to grasp that she was not only limiting her children and potentially turning them into narrow minded little bigots, but betraying her own woeful insecurities. Presumably she feels that her complete lack of any redeeming qualities necessitates her sounding controversial in public, as the oxygen of publicity would dry up instantly if it was based on her personality and achievements alone. Either way – why is this woman being given a voice?
