So the weeks news has been dominated by the antics of Katie Hopkins. Was this all a game plan of hers to knife her way through The Apprentice, only to jump ship at the crucial moment? How she seems to have a penchant for married men and leave a trail of devastation in her wake. Was that photo contrived? (I suspect it was. It looked too neat!)
It all leaves you wondering who the real Katie Hopkins is! Caring mother? Fun person who brings a bubbly ray of sunshine? Homewrecker? game player? B***h extraordinaire? And for that reason alone, because of her seeming lack of ethics and trustworthiness, I am not sure I would hire her if I were Sir Alan. I also wonder what has motivated her, what has made her like this. Yes she might have been bullied when younger, but so was I, so were many people, but many people don't behave like she did! Feel sorry for her though!
And yes this is "a game" in some respects and I will concede with gritted teeth that Katie has played it well, but what has it done for her reputation and long term chances and ability to move onwards and upwards in the media and business world? Even the best gamblers suffer heavy loses!
And talking of "The Media", I am disapointed that not surprised that Channel 4 decided to show that documentary. After all sensationalism sells. It's just a pity that they don't properly consider the feelings of those loved ones left behind and demean the memory of those who have died.
UPDATE: Katie Hopkins wants to become a Conservative MP. I had better leave it at that, or else a) I am in danger of doing a Katie and b) will get a whole load of unpleasant comments from Tory trolls! Suffice to say that if she does get accepted by the Conservatives, I wonder if they will give her a Northern constituency to fight ;)
