Are illegals 'cockroaches' and 'feral humans'?

Outspoken columnist Katie Hopkins has admitted she regrets some of the extreme language she used to describe migrants in the Mediterranean, but has stopped short of a full apology.

The media personality sparked outrage in April, when she wrote a newspaper column entitled 'Rescue boats? I'd use gunships to stop migrants.'

She went on to write: '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.'

The 40-year-old also described migrants as 'cockroaches' and 'feral humans', prompting UN high commissioner for human rights, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein to denounce her racist language and compare her comments to pro-genocide propaganda.

Ms Hopkins prides herself on never having apologised for anything she has said but in a new interview she says she does have regrets. She admitted: 'There's some things about that column, there are some words which in hindsight you'd probably pull out of there.

'But I think overall my message isn't about the idea that we want to see migrants and people suffering, it's an idea that we need to find solutions to problems.'

Give her the European of the Year award. She tells the truth and the socialists don't like it. Tough shit. They allowed their countries to go to shit while they stood idly around watching. Perhaps if they had fought for their country like patriots the EU would not be harvesting the flotsam and jetsam that infests the Mediterranean Sea at the moment. So many people are economic refugees because they don't have the guts to stand up for there country. I agree, gunboats not life boats. Make them live in the mess they made.
