Dear Children

(148) Comments | Posted 6 December 2015 | (00:00)

You are safe at school now. I like walking you there because I get to hear more about what you are thinking and there is space for me to listen.

And I understand more about how you see the world at ten, nine and six. 'Why the hell would...

The Katie Hopkins Revised Guide to Human Rights

(43) Comments | Posted 1 June 2015 | (12:47)

Under pressure from a couple of gluten-free vegans, the Conservatives are backtracking wildly on their plans to scrap their association with the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).

Theresa May is not the only one seething with rage. I am livid.

No, River Island, We Epileptics Don't Want to 'Seize the Day'

(63) Comments | Posted 27 May 2015 | (13:53)

I'm epileptic. No big news.

And as causes go, epilepsy is hopeless. It's not even third division. It's not cute, not fluffy, doesn't have the big eyes of a dog or the big ears of a donkey.

It's an ugly thing, utterly terrifying for unwitting spectators, and hugely misunderstood.

(111) Comments | Posted 13 April 2015 | (13:05)


"Reported!" they tweet, followed with a snazzy tag for @metpoliceuk.

A huge number of my tweets cause people to take offence and go running to the boys in blue to share their outrage.

I have been reported for everything from ebola...

Strength in Silence

(26) Comments | Posted 20 February 2015 | (09:06)

If there is one thing I love in life it's a good old rant.

In many ways words are my therapist. Written, spoken or spat out in anger a problem shared may be a problem halved, but a rant is double the volume and twice as satisfying.

It's Not Fat Shaming, It's Honesty

(80) Comments | Posted 12 September 2014 | (01:00)

A bunch of researchers who clearly had nothing better to do than follow 3,000 fatties around for four years have found that telling people they are fat makes them fatter.

You see, you there in the skinny jeans. You with your fat shaming eyes, ignoring the woman wedged in the...

I Don't Need a Picture of Diane Abbott

(24) Comments | Posted 15 January 2014 | (00:00)

Now you know you have paid for portraits of everyone from Abbott to Clarkson (Ken - not Jeremy, though the latter would have been preferable), it should come as no surprise that the most expensive of them all was John Bercow at £37,000.

His coat of arms states 'All men...

Marks and Spencer have not had a great run up to the Christmas period. There has been a slump in its clothing sales and its share price has taken a dive.

Definitely Not Sign Language

Sitting on the sofa watching Mandela's memorial, I asked my husband what the hell the guy signing for the deaf thought he was doing.

I am no expert. But even to the untrained eye you could tell he was not doing what he should be. The guy looked about...

The Real Reason Food Banks Have Trebled

(222) Comments | Posted 24 October 2013 | (01:00)

One mention of food banks and we are all supposed to break out the Andrex tissues, wipe away our tears of sympathy and empty our cupboards into the nearest food bank donation box.

Unsurprisingly, my eyes are as dry as they were at my mother-in-laws funeral. Gove says food bank...

Overweight Kids Need to Be Told They Are Fat

(481) Comments | Posted 14 October 2013 | (01:00)

One in 10 children now starts school classified as very overweight or obese. We are not allowed to tell the parents of these four-to-five-year-olds in case it upsets them.

I believe it is time for a few tears and tantrums. Hard news hurts.

If you have fed your child into...

Over the next few weeks, many teachers are going on strike.

Paying to Be In the Company We Prefer to Keep

Sat in sunny Rhodes, I am acutely aware that the families sitting in the 'deluxe' area of the resort have one unspoken benefit. They have paid to be amongst the sort of company they prefer to keep.

In every other regard they have the same holiday: the same accommodation;...

Why Must Everything Be a Medical Condition

(125) Comments | Posted 19 August 2013 | (01:00)

Prescriptions for ADHD medicines have soared by 50% in six years. I believe we are feeding a worrying appetite that is satiated only by a prescription for a medical condition.

Instead of accepting a problem and agreeing to do something about it, we seek a quick diagnosis (most made...

Can the Church of England Please Focus on Religion?

(76) Comments | Posted 15 August 2013 | (01:00)

If you are a white male wanting to enter politics, it seems the fast track system to the top is to claim devotion to the Church of England. Recent evidence suggests the Church now has a license to provide a commentary on all matters; political, environmental and commercial.
