British TV talker will NOT face charges over allegations that she incited racial hatred

Katie Hopkins will not face charges over allegations that she incited racial hatred in a newspaper article calling migrants 'cockroaches' and 'feral humans', it can be revealed today.

The 40-year-old MailOnline columnist caused a storm after writing a controversial article in April entitled 'Rescue boats? I'd use gunships to stop migrants'.

And three days later she was reported to the Metropolitan Police by Society of Black Lawyers (SBL) chairman Peter Herbert, who complained that her words were ‘offensive’ and ‘xenophobic’.

But Detective Inspector Howard Hold from the force’s homicide and major crime command unit has now written to Miss Hopkins to confirm she will not be charged following the article and her subsequent comments on LBC radio.

And the mother-of-three told MailOnline today: ‘I will not and will never apologise for standing up for what I believe in. People are not really sorry. They are sorry to be disliked.

‘I find it surprising that at a time when police are so undermanned they can't afford to turn up to burglaries or find cars after a crash, they think a woman with an opinion is their highest priority.

‘I am grateful Scotland Yard enjoys my writing but I would encourage them to focus their energies on those who present a real threat to this country which I love.’

She added that the officers who interviewed her under caution appeared to make it clear there was no case to answer, but that she would be referred to the Crown Prosecution Service because it was the SBL making the complaint.

The immigration "crisis" has been manufactured by progressives to get more people for their base constituency. The "refugees" are mostly young men looking for jobs not families escaping persecution.

The SBL should be charged with WASTING police time (especially when the police are under such pressure with REAL crimes).

The SBL need to leave and return to where they came from and quit their darn whining

SBL should be billed for the police time wasted investigating their malicious complaints. It's easy to be offended for no valid reason. One would have to ask why there is such an entity as SBL in the UK in the first place unless it is to launch false prosecutions based on perceived racism rather than actual racism. Doesn't that make them racist by their actions?

Is there a Society of White Lawyers? Oh no, that would be racist.
