Writer Proposes “Euthanasia Vans,” Says UK Has “Too Many Old People”

Former reality TV star Katie Hopkins said there are “far too many old people” in the United Kingdom and her country should create “euthanasia vans” to fix that problem. In an interview with Radio Times magazine, Katie said, “We just have far too many old people. It’s ridiculous to be living in a country where we can put dogs to sleep but not people.”

Then she explained her solution. She said, “Euthanasia vans – just like ice-cream vans – that would come to your home. It would all be perfectly charming. They might even have a nice little tune they’d play. I mean this genuinely. I’m super-keen on euthanasia vans. We need to accept that just because medical advances mean we can live longer, it’s not necessarily the right thing to do.”

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Katie’s voiced her radical views to the public. Earlier this year, she said that migrants are “cockroaches” and “feral humans”. She explained, “Rescue boats?” I’d use gunships to stop migrants…. 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.”

Additionally, on Twitter she mocked Dementia patients. She said, “Babe I’m here again, I’m here again, where have you been. Babe I’m back again. I’m back again Where have you been? Take That Dementia stylee.” However, her comments in April were even more disturbing. The Mirror Online reports that she tweeted, “dementia sufferers should not be blocking beds” – before going on to ask what the point of their lives was, then adding, “bang me over the head”.

As LifeNews previously reported, former Newsnight host Jeremy Paxton made some offensive comments about elderly people at the Islington theatre last August. He said, “The problem with old people is they are bloody everywhere. You cannot get on a train or go to a country pub. They are all full of old people. Through no fault of their own, they believe the state owes them a living. They are under the illusion they have paid to a pension fund all their lives. But they haven’t.”



Then he talked about his support for Dignitas, which is an organization in Switzerland that “helps” people commit suicide when they have a terminal or severe mental or physical illness.

He said, “I would like to invite you all to join my crowd-funded project for franchises of Dignitas clinics. We will have them on every street corner. It would be rather like Sweeney Todd’s pie shop and will be disguised as tea shops. You will take Aunty Doris there and drop her off and she will say “see you next Tuesday” and you’ll say “probably”.
