Just heard that too. I ever know her from The Apprentice, and thought she was poisonous even then.
Certainly never seen cycling south of Sussex

Just read a bit more, apparently James O'Brien made some trenchant comments after her "final solution" tweet calling her "a monstrous self publicist". At least someone at LBC has stood up to her.

As reported on BBC:

Hopefully her writing will be curtailed as she has already cost the publication quite a lot and can't believe the circulation depends on her bile.

I think she's eyeing a  move  to America. Fox News have her on regularly, and now that Milo is out of favour due to his support  of paedophilia, the role of UK arsehat abroad is vacant.

Getting fired by LBC for offensive remarks takes some doing.

Her offensive remarks are precisely why the employed her.

Anyone with actual morals wouldn't employ her.  She's "click-bait", she knows it and so do the people who sell advertising on Radio, TV and Newspapers.

The only thing you can do is to boycott.  Reducing "clicks" will end her career.  This new controversy will most likely increase her advertising potential.

Simply discussing her on YACF will most likely result in raising her earning potential via some Google Marketing algorithm.

I agree with Lee.  If people would only stop mentioning her for a slagging off on Twitter and elsewhere it would reduce her profile enormously.

Bugger.  I've just posted in a thread that carries her name.   :facepalm:

Whose name? Doesn't matter.

What's this bottom line for anyway?

For some reason that escapes me I think of her as Katie Cockroach.

As much as I dislike insects, I feel calling her Katie Cockroach is an insult to cockroaches  :D

The tag of "horsey-faced sex fiend" she acquired post-Apprentice but pre-shock columnist stuck in my mind.

I am sitting here feeling insufferably smug, because having willingly foregone what can only laughingly be described as popular "entertainment" this last several years, nay decades, and likewise "social" media (anti-social surely?) my psyche has not been  irretrievably tainted by exposure to what sounds like a thoroughly horrible individual whose name I know only because of  YACF.

I'm thinking of formally naming this policy of ignoring such "entertainments" as, "The Wowbagger Doctrine" in homage to both our greatest living "popular culture" refusenik and the isolationist elements of the Monroe Doctrine.  :)

Joking apart, from what I've picked over the last few days I am _really_ glad that I've not seen her or any of her work.

But she isn't sadly. She reflects the opinions of many, possibly the majority.

She tweeted this a while ago:

Give me strength. Stick up a chuffing sign for English Language School

It's obviously a fake. She tweeted it cos she wants to believe it cos she's not just a gobshite she really is a thick racist gobshite. She really does believe the stuff she comes out with. That may be why she's less dangerous than Piers Morgan. Her audience is much smaller now anyway.

She's one of life's natural born arseholes, so I don't think she'll ever stop spouting her bile. But as mentioned upthread, she's looking to go to the USA. They can have her.....

She promised to move to USAnia if TЯump became president, but this turned out to be a Lie.  She also promised to run naked down Oxford Street with a banana shoved up her arse if Sadiq Khan became London mayor, but this turned out to be a Lie too.

I am starting to see a pattern here.

Now that Mike Dubke has quit, she must be the ideal candidate to replace him as The Donalds Communications Director.
