KATIE HOPKINS has blasted the Prime Minister over her plans for a ‘shared society’ and claimed Britain has become a “nation of ghettos”.

The controversial radio host criticised ‘ in which the PM outlined how Britons want the Government to intervene rather than stand-by and let societal injustices go unnoticed.

Hopkins said she preferred Margaret Thatcher’s famous “there is no society” quip.

Speaking on LBC the host blasted the Prime Minister before making a savage remark about the state of Britain and particularly integration within communities.

She said: “Team Maggie, ‘there’s no such thing as society’ or team , where she says ‘that the things that make us great are local social cultural unions’.

“I’m not sure that’s true given we live in a nation of ghettos, Mrs Theresa May”.

She said: “I rather like Maggie’s idea that we are individuals and we need to take individual responsibility for our actions.”

Mrs May has begun to outline her vision of Britain as she insisted the vote to leave the EU was also a vote to change the way our country works.

She said: “It goes to the heart of my belief that there is more to life than individualism and self-interest.

“The social and cultural unions represented by families, communities, towns, cities, counties and nations are the things that define us and make us strong.

And it is the job of Government to encourage and nurture these relationships and institutions where it can, and to correct the injustice and unfairness that divides us wherever it is found.”

Ms Hopkins refused to accept this however and continued with her tirade and said the state should not intervene to such an extent.

Raging at what she said was a sense of entitlement of some citizens, she said: “I don’t have a house, the government should buy me one. I don’t have a job, the government should get me one. I don’t have an income, the government should provide me one.

“I’ve got bad health because I ate too much, the government should pay for a new hip, it just seems to me we go that way.”
