Radio presenter and Daily Mail columnist Katie Hopkins has apparently backed Keith Vaz MP after alleged details about his private life were made public, saying that if you don’t have skeletons in your closet you haven’t lived.
Speaking on LBC Katie Hopkins has given her sympathy for Labour politician Keith Vaz after alleged details were leaked about his private life. She scorned the moral outrage surrounding the Labour MP after newspapers reported on alleged sex and drug allegations details surrounding the MP’s private life.
“Little bit of sympathy and support for Keith Vaz this morning. Little bit of a shocker to find out your whole private life has been made public…. that your hooking up with a few rent boys is out there to be seen by the world.
“That you may have been indulging in a few things you didn’t want to.”
“I say ‘go Keith Vaz’. He was having a party in his pants, allegedly. Don’t just sit there and knock him from your sofa your sofa and knock and go ‘tut tut tut’.
“Remember you’ve all got skeletons in your closet, you’ve all got stuff to hide, you’ve all done dirty little things in your life.”
“If you haven’t, you haven’t lived, you’re probably and accountant in the public sector, I pity you. Rock on Keith Vaz. Sorry about your wife and kids and all that, but I say ‘go you’ and keep getting that party started. We need more people who are a bit more real. I don’t know why politicians have to be priests.”
Mr Vaz has now stepped down as the chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee following newspaper claims that he allegedly paid for services of two male escorts.
In a statement he said,
“It is in the best interest of the Home Affairs Select Committee that its important work can be conducted without any distractions whatsoever.
“I am genuinely sorry that recent events make it impossible for this to happen if I remain chair. “
