A fresh war of words erupted after Church Tweeted of her pride in having taken part in the anti-austerity rally in London on Saturday.
The Welsh singer also posted a link to the full transcript of the speech she delivered in Parliament Square in which she called for the country to rally and “save ourselves from decades of Yuppie rule”.
So proud to have marched with 250,000 people against austerity. Here's the transcript of my speech in Parliament Sq. https://t.co/MvS2jb6GY5— Charlotte Church (@charlottechurch) June 20, 2015
Former Conservative MP Mensch, who has previously accused Church of “talking rubbish about the Prime Minister”, interjected on Twitter after user @screwlabour mocked her assertion the Tories will “sell off our schools and our hospitals.”
“Hahahaha get back in the ‘VIP area’ of the ‘austerity protest’ you useless hypocrite” Mensch blasted, before asking: “Hey Charlotte, did you actually vote?”
Referring to Russell Brand’s controversial appearance at the march, Mensch then described Church’s Twitter feed as a “car crash” and sarcastically mused on whether “Labour will ever win again”.
A near constant stream of vitriol followed, which also saw the 43-year-old, [who last month was roundly accused of cyber bullying a 17-year-old Labour-supporting student], brand Church an “overpaid bolinger Bolshevik who doesn’t have a fucking clue.”
For her part, Church has simply retorted how pleased she was to have pissed Mensch [and Katie Hopkins] off.
I 'm so pleased to have pissed off both Katie Hopkins and @LouiseMensch— Charlotte Church (@charlottechurch) June 23, 2015
After spotting Church at an anti-austerity march in Cardiff shortly after the election, Hopkins dubbed the singer a "fat Welsh Russell Brand" and ordered her to "wind her neck in."
