  3. There are reports on TV of the local Borough Council refusing to take seriously the concerns of Residents. There are also reports of residents being threatened and bullied by Contractors when they complained about fire safety. If this had happened in China there would be mass arrests of those involved and they would be facing the death penalty. This is the UK and there will be a whitewash. The tower block will be demolished and replaced with accommodation for the well heeled. So sad for those involved. Ones heart goes out to them. Lets hope there is some justice for them in the years to come.

    • Trump and his pathetic family members will doubtless find a way to blame this on the mayor of London, while the civilised world focusses on the plight of the victims and their families first and foremost.

  4. A minimum of twelve dead now – and some terrible tales of families stuck inside.

    The world is a shit place to be at times.
