Katie Hopkins sparks outrage with her 'shocking' views on the London terror attack

Londoners rallied together to stand in solidarity after yesterday’s horrific terror attack claimed the life of four people, but Katie Hopkins has shared a very different view of the emotions felt on the streets of our capital this morning.

Appearing on the Fox news network, the controversial commentator, who is well versed in the art of ruffling a few feathers, claimed that the United Kingdom was paralysed with fear in the wake of the recent attack.

Taking it upon herself to speak on behalf of the nation, Katie claimed: “The message is, ‘We will not be cowed by terror. We will stand united.’ But the big news is that’s the message in London – that’s not the message here in the UK.”

She continued: “People are cowed, people are afraid and people are not united. Great Britain is more disunited, more divided than at any other time in its past.

“We are, in fact, a nation of ghettos. I think liberals here believe multiculturalism means we all die together, and that’s not a view I support.”

When asked about her strident views on multiculturalism, the 42-year-old provocateur added: “All that conflict, all that war, all that tension, that didn’t get left behind, they just brought it here.

“If we imagine we’re united, that’s a lie. All those hashtags, lights, candles, making hearts with your hands – that means nothing. Put that stuff away.”

Elsewhere, Fox News’ national security and foreign policy expert Walid Phares tweeted about appearing on the news channel to discuss London’s apparent lockdown, writing: “One man can shut down a city.”

However, in a serious show of strength, Londoners have taken to social media to counteract these far-reaching comments, with many expressing their blunt bemusement over the claims.

Speaking yesterday in the immediate aftermath of the attack, in which a lone attacker ploughed into a crowd of pedestrians on Westminster bridge, London mayor Sadiq Khan said: “My heart goes out to those who have lost loved ones and to everyone who has been affected.”

He added: “I want to reassure all Londoners and all our visitors, not to be alarmed.

“Our city remains one of the safest in the world. London is the greatest city in the world and we stand together in the face of those who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life. We always have, and we always will.

“Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism.”
