Katie Hopkins: Why I Back The Ban On Burkinis

27 August 2016, 10:42

Whatever your stance on the burkini ban, Katie Hopkins' strident take on it will spark a reaction in you.

Speaking after France's highest court suspended the ban on the full-body swimsuits worn by Muslim women at the beach, Katie was insistent it was a good idea.

Her reason why? The morning after the horrific attack on Nice.

"Try thinking about that picture of that little teddy bear on the ground next to a body covered over with a sheet.

"Try thinking about the guy behind that wheel, swerving left and right in a monster truck to run people over.

"And then think why this ban might be in place.

"Just a temporary ban against a uniform that identifies with a religion associated with extremist acts. I support the ban."

The LBC presenter continued: "If you don't like it, don't go to the beach!

"What joy is there being on a beach with only your eyeballs being on display?"

The issue has been championed by some feminists who say it's emancipating for women to be able to cover themselves up.

Katie took aim at them too: "You cannot tell me that wearing a burkini is liberating for women.

"Boy oh boy, it's going to be a strange woman that thinks a burkini is a good option!"
