NEVER one to miss an opportunity to intentionally offend people, TV personality Katie Hopkins gave her chronically crass opinion on Scottish nurse and Ebola victim Pauline Cafferkey.

Tweeting from her official account, Hopkins wrote: “Little sweaty jocks, sending us Ebola bombs in the form of sweaty Glaswegians just isn’t cricket. Scottish NHS sucks.”

Cafferkey was transferred from Glasgow to London’s Royal Free Hospital in isolation as she’s set to be treated for Ebola. The nurse contracted the disease while volunteering as an aid worker in Sierra Leone.
