“The price of not saying sorry has been very high. Hopkins has had to pay out of her own pocket a six figure sum in damages and costs for a tweet that should have been deleted within minutes as soon as she was told it was wrong. On this occasion, the cost of renting that gob was particularly high.

GoFundMe campaign to pay Katie Hopkins legal bills holding steady at eighty pence
March 12, 2017
Written by Davywavy
An online campaign to help Katie Hopkins pay her legal fees has raised 80p and a used johnny since launching yesterday.

Hopkins, whose steadfast determination to stand by her deranged burblings irrespective of evidence has thus far cost her six figures and counting, is set to pay out over three hundred grand leading fans to create an online campaign to help her out.

“The case was unfairly biased against Katie because the lawyers and unelected judge relied on ‘facts’ to decide it,” said supporter Simon Williams, who created the campaign.

ADVERTISING

“If the people elected judges and other legal types then I’m confident there would be less focus on established facts and more on feels, which are more important.

“I’m pleased the donations of a shilling, a thruppenny bit and a week-old johnny show there are others out there who love Katie like I do.

“I’ve pledged to match all donations, so I’m off for a posh wank over a copy of one of her Muslim articles.”

The “Save Katie!!” Campaign will continue to run until it has raised the full £324,000 or the heat-death of the universe, whichever comes first.

I don't think Hopkins will have to pay 300k costs but it would not surprise me if she had to pay a sizeable chunk. The fact that Monroe tried to settle it straight away and repeatedly yet Hopkins just refused to back down leaving Monroe no choice but to go to court will count heavily against her. The fact her lawyer claimed she was a professional controversialist as her defence may also count against her. She was not just a random making a comment she was doing it to cause controversy for professional gain, if i read her lawyer right, so the judge may view that as making costs her risk. Plus she will earn well so could probably afford it without having to live on the streets.

I still can't see how she got the two women mixed up as afaik she had already made repulsive tweets about the first woman regarding her comments about vandalism as protest.

Cannot actually believed she has tweeted a picture of herself as the Virgin Mary claiming she is the Jesus of free speech or some such. A woman who threatened to put a sausage up her bottom and run around naked has compared herself to Jesus. The church should sue!

I don't know why they harp on about free speech, free speech is about the right to campaign politically, practice your religion etc, whistleblowing. It's not the right to make false accusations. If anything by making a false accusation against jack Monroe on the basis that she is left wing it is Hopkins shutting down true free speech. Jack Monroe is left wing but unlike Hopkins she is not really controversial, outspoken but her principles of parents getting flexible working, people being able to eat and keep warm are hardly shocking. And unlike Hopkins, Monroe has a lot more middle class support.

I see Katie "sausage up rectum" Hopkins has had a bleat about UK police getting money to search for a British missing child. Is that her way of offering to pay the court costs of her libel trial in addition to jack Monroe's costs? Or is she ok with the tax payer forking out tens of thousands because she could not type "i am sorry, i was wrong, i will donate 5k to charity". Exactly who does she think pays for the court staff? Does she think the judge is a volunteer?

You'd think Hopkins would of learnt to choose her words more carefully but seemingly not.
I believe Jack Monroe is in talks with her legal team once again.

She really is sad and desperate. It must hurt her that she has had to threaten to perform lewd named acts in public with sausages, slag off families of missing children and a murdered policeman to get attention wheras jack Monroe wrote a blog about home made hummous and became a house hold name.
