Backbench MPs are not the only ones who were driven into a frenzy by the minute detail of financial policy being read out by a man in a suit today.
Katie Hopkins was so excited by George Osborne's budget and his revelation that cuts to welfare saving would add up to £21 billion a year, that she tweeted "take that you lazy dole-wasting bastards!"
She placed a "*" in the word "bastards" to protect those of her followers who are easily offended by crass words and statements (but follow Hopkins anyway).
'Welfare savings of over £21 billion a year'. Epic. So take that you lazy dole-wasting b*stards. #Budget2015— Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) March 18, 2015
So, if you found the budget boring, let Hopkins show you the passion that is possible when you engage in politics.
It's not the first time her passion for current affairs has shone through.
Her enthusiasm for the news has seen her conclude that sacking Jeremy Clarkson would be "like hanging The Queen" and intervening to stop Danny Dyer getting married.
She also used Twitter to get an urgent message to the Israeli government: "Palestinians busy knifing Israelis. 2 state solution my arse. Filthy rodents burrowing beneath Israel. Time to restart the bombing campaign"
She had more thoughts on the budget, which were rude about PHD students, scientists and people who hear the word 'wank' when someone says 'tank'.
new funding for PHD students in science. Shit George. Stand by for crap experiments telling us mice like classical music #Budget2015— Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) March 18, 2015
£10 off a tank with the Tories. That was tank you perverts #Budget2015— Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) March 18, 2015
It remains to be seen whether Hopkins will be called on to read her tweets out load on 24-hour news channels to fill up the hours they will devote to commentary on the budget.
