Katie Hopkins

admins Please remove if in wrong place

I thought this deserves it's own thread as mentions are getting lost in the sunday times thread, Love her or loathe her, Agree or disagree , trying to be controversial or merely stating what her opinions are and what she feels , I find her refreshing even If I disagree with 'some' of her opinions , I would rather some one spoke to the truth even if it went against the grain , than have to listen to a people pleasing brown nosing Lorraine Kelly ,

 Now Katie has mentioned she is reading 'truth of a lie' she may start tweeting more on this subject, but the question is Do you think Phil and Holly are going to invite her on the sofa to debate this one out? ! Will the main stream media pick her up on this? or let it blow over? they want her on tv when its about fat kids, kids names, ginger hair ect, because she does get the viewers in , Would they let her have a debate about something like this?, Day break presenters are conformists they have contracts to keep same as reporters  conforming to their editors, Are they willing to let her be a mouth piece as they have no obligations to her? and I think she  is freelance, It will be telling to see if they ignore her on this one who knows?

Twitter  developed ‘verified status’, the ‘blue tick’, which is a badge on a Twitter account which signifies that Twitter has established its authenticity. The ‘blue tick’ is most commonly used for celebrities and high-profile individuals as they typically do not have the same advantage that companies do in terms of linking their Twitter page back to a website. The verified badge helps users to distinguish legitimate sources of information for their followers.
Unfortunately, neither companies nor celebrities can verify their own page. Twitter has full discretion as to whom they will verify on its own proactive basis. There are, however, several key tips to bear in mind when a company hopes to get verified on Twitter.
Link your Twitter profile to an official website. Remember to include the Twitter’s follow button on your web page so that even if you are not selected to be verified your followers will still be able to find your official twitter feed.
Build your case. The majority of accounts on Twitter are verified because there have been fraudulent accounts set up which are discrediting a brand’s messaging. If this is the case, you must make sure to document and report impostors and false tweets to Twitter and explain your case for needing that blue tick. Tweet @verified or e-mail the help centre for more details.
Advertise. Twitter won’t guarantee verification, but it is acknowledged unofficially in the online community that companies have a much better chance of being verified if they advertise heavily on Twitter. Unfortunately there is no guarantee that you will see a return on your investment.
At the end of the day, the blue tick is not the ‘be all or end all’ for your company’s social media presence online. It is much more important to take other considerations into account when developing your Twitter page, such as determining your niche and developing a targeted, planned approach which engages with your customers. By developing an integrated social media presence linking your Twitter page to your website, you have a much greater chance not only of increasing brand recognition and improving your search engine rankings, but also being verified on Twitter without having to put your case forward.

Reading the Truth of the Lie by Amaral. As with all things McCanns don't like, they are taking legal action to punish the author #McCanns

Crimewatch - brilliantly timed to drown out the noise of libel action surrounding 'The Truth of the Lie'. #McCanns

Solicitors will not find Madeleine. No matter how much cash you give them. Enough with the legal threats and libel action .#McCanns

She has the most unfortunate personality but I agree with a lot she says.  In a way I wish she wasn`t on the same side as me as her arrogance and brazen honesty can sometimes do more harm. I don`t follow her on twitter - don`t want to encourage her arrogance !

She'll be removed from the sofa.  Just like we never heard again of that Irish Booker Prize winner after she spoke out against the McCanns. Let's be honest, for a number of people speaking out against the McCanns has resulted in career death.

Katie Hopkins is certainly a polarising figure. This discussion on childhood obesity on This Morning http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2458583/Katie-Hopkins-Behind-fat-child-fat-mum-responsibility.html, in which she went head to head with more liberal-minded journo Sonia Poulton, is a prime example. Interestingly, while polar opposites here, Katie and Sonia share a scepticism of the McCanns. Sonia's Twitter, https://twitter.com/SoniaPoulton while not as outspoken at Katie's, shows that this case crosses political as well as social lines.

After the McAlpine verdict on Sally Bercow, it would be a fool who had many followers and published something seriously libellous.

Maybe she thinks that funds could be running low and maybe she thinks that if she stands her ground against any libel threat, she might get an offer to settle out of court, maybe?

Maybe when the verdict on Mr. A's action is known, there will not be any other libel threats?

Libel in Portugal is different to libel in England. All Sally Bercow posted was a simple rhetorical question that only hinted at wrong doing and it has cost her £15,000.The McCanns have only acted on libel against people with standing and traction on the matter. SOmeone like Katie Hopkins might make a tempting target to reinforce their campaign that they are innocent.

Yeah but yeah but no but.....can the McCanns really afford (reputation wise as well as financially) to enter into more litigation? Can the McCanns take on twitter? shut down the internet? gag the press? close fora?

If the McCanns can do that they can't have much time left for searching.

Twitter is riding for a fall in the UK. The McAlpine verdict (with which I seriously disagree and which was made on the coat-tails of Leveson) means that even indirect suggestion of criminality is illegal on Twitter. McAlpine decided to accept minimal payments from people with small lists of followers, but went after well known tweeters for moderate sums. There is no real defense that can be offered against even mild innuendo if people want to make a point.

Whether it is politically useful is a matter for the person claiming to be libelled- it is an open question what the British public feel about such matters, and the McCanns might see it as worthwhile to garner more newspaper coverage about their 'innocence' by going after a tall poppy on Twitter.

You have a good point there but with Gerry and the Hacked Off Crew (sounds like a good name for a band) and the libel trial in Portugal would the best advice be to enter into more litigation? I dunno. We live in interesting times.

I remember seeing her on This Morning and talking about not letting her kids play with other kids of certain names...she came in for a lot of stick but at the end of the day I bet Scholfield and Willoughbooby feel exactly the same. It was hilarious for us in a way because as foster carers we knew the names she was talking about featured heavily on facebook friends list of the troubled kids we were looking after. 

So...ths McCann tweets are very interesting. She's not saying anything that can't be proven - someone in Team McCann DID suppress those e-fits, the McCanns have launched action against people who disagree with them...fail to see what they could sue her for.

KH has simply commented on The Sunday Times article, she's made no accusations that I can see - so how can her tweets amount to libel?
