Katie Hopkins: Euthanasia Vans Needed, England Has 'Too Many Old People'

According to Katie Hopkins, euthanasia vans are necessary because England has way "too many old people" and she believes doctor-assisted suicide is the answer. Such inflammatory language is only the tip of the iceberg, since she also refers to illegal immigrants as "cockroaches" for trying to sneak into European countries via the Mediterranean.

In a related report by the Inquisitr, a physically healthy woman plans on dying by doctor-assisted euthanasia because she has suicidal thoughts. Instead of treating the depression, doctors are recommending that she die.

Based on the comments by Sun columnist Kate Hopkins, euthanasia is also the answer for many others. Although medical science has progressed to the point where life can be sustained for many years longer, Hopkins argues that doctors need to start prescribing suicide for the masses.

"We just have far too many old people," Hopkins argues, according to Reuters. "It's ridiculous to be living in a country where we can put dogs to sleep but not people. We need to accept that just because medical advances mean we can live longer, it's not necessarily the right thing to do."

Katie Hopkins' euthanasia prescription would come in the form of specialized euthanasia vans which could visit hospitals and homes.

"Euthanasia vans – just like ice-cream vans – that would come to your home," she explained. "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."

Death is also the solution for immigration reform. In order to stop the flow of illegal immigrants, she says these "cockroaches" must be squashed.

"Rescue boats?" she proclaimed. "I'd use gunships to stop migrants.... Show me pictures of coffins, show me bodies floating in water, play violins and show me skinny people looking sad. I still don't care."

Hopkins then went on to upset everyone by proclaiming that education systems need to be segregated based upon intelligence.

"If you're slow, go sit with the slow kids. None of this endless negotiation, discussion, 'golden time' nonsense you get in state schools these days."

Next month, Hopkins plans on launching her own TV show called If Katie Hopkins Ruled The World. Based upon the quotes seen above, it seems like Hopkins would probably recommend death.
