Iain Dale vs Katie Hopkins: "We Are NOT Cowed"
Iain Dale gives Katie Hopkins both barrels after she claimed Londoners were "cowed" by terrorists.
Iain Dale says he's been astonished by what fellow LBC presenter Katie Hopkins had to say about London in the wake of the Westminster terror attacks. So he absolutely lets her have it in this rant.
The predictable idiot. We stand together. We will not be cowed. ... no! We stand divided, cowed by your religion https://t.co/lpiM4CTZ7Y— Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) March 22, 2017
Hopkins, who presents her LBC show on Sundays at 10am, appeared on Fox News overnight to comment on the Westminster terror attack and her comments didn't impress Iain one bit.
"That is the best of London, that we do stand united in circumstances where we've experienced terrible things.
"Do I need to remind everyone about what happened in 1940 with The Blitz? I don't know what Katie Hopkins would have said about that.
"When I arrived at Charing Cross this morning, all I saw was Londoners going about their business as normal. No-one was cowed. No-one seemed to be afraid. What the were doing was showing unity as they went about their daily business."
Iain didn't stop there: "I think it's a disgrace for anybody to go on a foreign television channel and effectively trash their own country. Because that it was this was doing.
"I don't know a single person who believes that they are 'cowed'. I don't know a single person who says: 'Well, we're afraid that this is going to happen every day.
"We are not cowed because we are British. And it is not the British thing to do."
