After the attention-shy motor-mouth penned a shocking piece in her weekly Sun column about burning the boats of migrants (as well as referring to them as 'cockroaches')  there was a fair bit of backlash.

When a helicopter swooped low across North Sentinel island in the wake of the 2004 tsunami, an islander ran out on the beach, aiming an arrow at the pilot.
