A 14-year-old actually asked Nick Clegg if he would ‘kill Katie Hopkins’

A teenager has asked a very honest question to Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg about controversial columnist Katie Hopkins.

Harvey Cuffe asked the Deputy Prime Minister whether he could “kill Katie Hopkins”.

The 14-year-old schoolboy was even praised by Mr Clegg himself who said it was a “brilliant question”.

The Lib Dem leader went on however, to say “No, no, no. I don’t think that’s a good idea.”

Offering some advice on Hopkins, who has been criticised recently for comments she made about migrants attempting to reach the UK, Mr Clegg said Cuffe should just “ignore her”.

Speaking to reporters after the event, Harvey said: “I asked him if he could arrest Katie Hopkins, because she’s dreadful. I also asked if he could get her killed, but that’s a bit too harsh.”

He added: “Unfortunately, he can’t”

Hopkins, writing in her column for the Sun, recently said she was unmoved by the plight of hundreds of migrants injured and killed while crossing the Mediterranean attempting to reach Europe.

The organisers of the ‘British LGBT Awards’ recently denied that they invited Katie Hopkins to the event, despite the fact that she received a VIP invitation.

Hopkins earlier this year submitted a question to a panel of politicians at the PinkNews Debate to weigh in on their position on gay parenting, and on the recent boycott of Dolce and Gabbana.
