    I have no idea who Jack Monroe is and to be honest any mention of a Food (or any other type of) Blogger has the tendency to make me reach for the punch bag. However, I DO know a tiny little bit about who Katie Hopkins is. Admittedly it's from a great distance as I'd never like to give her kind of 'famous for being a famous idiot' type character any credence at all (for the same reason I don't have any Jedward posters on my bedroom wall).

    Anyway, as KH is as close to a pointless **** (or whatever the female equivalent is) as most people will ever get I'm delighted that someone I don't know has got something over on someone else that I'd never want to know.

    Katie Hopkins quite rightly got sued for implying another human being destroyed war memorials.

    I take it you didnt read the story.

    I think its funny that Hopkins could of paid £5k and apologise and her own arrogance has cost her in excess of £100,000, I would like to think it will keep her hateful mouth a little bit under control in future although its probably unlikely..

    Hopkins is probably being bankrolled by the Daily Fail who, I suspect, are quite happy for her to get the extra publicity this has generated for such a small outlay. It would have cost them a lot more to buy advertising time in the middle of the X-Factor and this story will probably reach the same sort of audience as watch that.

    Well I suppose she coudl be, but I dont see any evidence of that, this is the kind of story I would've never noticed unless it was put under my nose, as it was in the OP.. but then again I am not an X-Factor viewer neither.

    I am no fan of Jack Monroe either but I suspect she will use the money she was awarded to put towards a greater good.. so if its money out of hopkins or the DM's pockets at least its not funding either of the mentions agendas.

    What amazes me is that KH actually gets paid enough in her 'job' to be able to afford the costs or - if the money is being paid by another - that anyone else thinks her worthy of that level of outlay. I'm sure we could all let our mouths run free on a range topics just to be deliberately controversial but i suspect most of us would rightly be embarrassed to call it a career. However, she's only paid because a lot of people buy the papers and give her encouragement by listening to her ranting, although not ALL of them are X Factor and Ant n Dec devotees.

    She speaks a lot of sense on her lbc radio slot shuts a lot of the leftie callers right up.

    She did a blog called a girl called jack when she was on the dole about making recipes as cheep as possible to feed a family. I've never read it myself but it was very popular a few years ago on netmums and probably mumsnet aswell

    So how do you classify a hermaphrodite?

    Anyway, it may well not be a gender thing, just the way Jack Monroe likes to be addressed. I'm sure you have your own preferred way of being addressed, or do you not care what anyone calls you?

    Better you than me thanx ...

    Tooooooo much 'alternative' fallout backlash to be more likely had off the back-end of otherwise 'questionable truths' like?, hmmmmmmmmm.

    Case in point could be that of some of the below:

    Anti-crime phone app 'Vigilante,' with real-time alerts, relaunches as 'Citizen'
    a.msn.com/r/2…-GB

    You could inevitably end up in the drink! (as the Assies would say), BEFORE any then notable payout befall's you?, so .....

    Be very CAREFUL!, when begging forth certain 'unwelcomed gifts' like?. :-)
