Almost all of what Katie Hopkins says should probably be ignored.
Except the things that should be laughed at.
Like her recent flurry of tweets gushing about “delicious” education secretary Michael Gove – one of the least sexy men in all of Westminster.
“Personally, I think Gove is delicious,” she posted. Rippling waves of nausea ensued.
But it isn’t his bejowled visage, or his unbelievable ability to annoy almost every school teacher in the country that has her hot under the collar. It’s his principles.
Making reference to his criticism of the planned walkouts by NUT teachers today (he branded strikers an “an ideologically motivated minority” and called the actions “damaging”), she continued:
Personally, I think Gove is delicious. Hooray for a good man with principles standing up to dim wits with pitchforks. #gogoveyougoodthingKatie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) July 10, 2014
Gove is not suggesting children are taught by unqualified teachers. He is suggesting children are taught by people that love their subject.Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) July 10, 2014
Gove is standing up for what he believes in in the face of a braying mob of complaining fools. it takes a brave man to have principles.Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) July 10, 2014
And of course, she couldn’t resist a quick pop at the deceased, either:

Gove is, of course, the same man who discovered the answer to attracting more young entrepreneurs to London earlier this year: All the “hot sex” the city has to offer.
Katie Hopkins' most offensive moments
Katie Hopkins' most offensive moments
1/16 Katie Hopkins on 'plus size'
'To call yourself 'plus-size' is just a euphemism for being fat. Life is much easier when you're thinner. Big is not beautiful, of course a job comes down to how you look.'
2/16 Katie Hopkins on naming children
‘I think you can tell a great deal from a name. For me, there are certain names that I hear and I think ‘Urgh’. For me, a name is a shortcut of finding out what class that child comes from and makes me ask, ‘Do I want my children to play with them?’ There’s a whole set of things that go with children like that and that’s why I don’t like those sorts of children. ‘Hi, this is my daughter Charmaine’. I hear: ‘Hi, I am thick and ignorant.’’
3/16 Katie Hopkins on gender equality
'Women don't want equal treatment, they couldn't handle it if they got it. It's a tough world out there. What a lot of women are actually looking for is special treatment. What women need to realise is that they have to toughen up.'
4/16 Katie Hopkins on immigration
'I've always said if you go into a school playground and shout Mohammad, you'll probably get 100 children running towards you!"

6/16 Katie Hopkins on tattoos
'Are tattoos just a badge for the stupid? For me, and for lots of people like me, when you see tatoos you think of someone who is just looking for attention, who hasn't managed to find a way in their life through conventional means and who is just shouting 'I want attention! I want to be looked at!'
7/16 Katie Hopkins on addiction
‘I don’t believe what Russell Brand says about addiction. I just don’t buy it. Gazza likes drinking, let him crack on. He is enjoying himself.’

'The X Factor 2013 has ended in a painful showdown between a fat mum in a jumpsuit (Sam Bailey) and a small boy in whatever his mum laid out for him on his bed (Nicholas McDonald)'
9/16 Katie Hopkins on the Egyptian uprising
'The difference between most mothers and me is that I didn’t sit around drinking coffee at baby group for 12 months after the birth of my baby. No, in three weeks I was back in my suit, back at my desk earning profit for my business and I don’t see why other women shouldn’t do the same.'
10/16 Katie Hopkins on maternity leave
'Egyptian uprising continues to look like Bonfire Night. Protest fireworks. Right up there with angry cup cakes.'
11/16 Katie Hopkins on 'gingerism'
'Ginger babies. Like a baby. Just so much harder to love. A ginger person with tattoos called Jayden? The triumvirate of horror!'
12/16 Katie Hopkins on affairs
'I lied to get someone else's husband because I wanted him. I give myself 8 out of 10 for ruthlessness for that one.'

16/16 Katie Hopkins on self-harming
'I am advised by the Twitterati to 'cut myself'. I grazed myself on my house gate yesterday. Will that suffice?'
Providing his expert analysis on why young businessmen and woman come to London back in April, the Education Secretary said that it is “not so much the high-tech opportunities” that provide the capital’s big attraction, but rather: “[The] great opportunities to be successful, enjoy a great culture, have a good time and loads of hot sex”.
