Take a look at what happens to Theresa May whenever she steps outside of the Westminster bubble these days:

Here’s a very good, quick statement of the reason for the reaction:

Yes, the killing of all these people – not just the 79 about whom we know, but the many hundreds of others who are still said to be lying in their 20-plus storey tomb.

How else can it be described, when you stack up the evidence, in the knowledge that regulations that should have kept them safe were deliberately eased or ignored in order to make a profit for private companies?

Did you know that the insulation around Grenfell Tower contained substances that were likely to release highly toxic cyanide into each flat if it caught fire? Living people have been treated for cyanide poisoning but we may never know how many it killed because of the condition of the victims’ bodies.

Did you know residents of Grenfell Tower had requested fire-resistant cladding for their building in 2012, but the flammable version was fitted instead – because it was cheaper?

Did you know that Camden Council is having to remove cladding from five tower blocks on its Chalcots estate because – despite ordering flame-proof cladding, the flammable version was fitted instead. The council is now seeking legal advice about its contractor, Rydon Construction – the same firm responsible for the cladding at Grenfell.

Have other council tower blocks have been turned into deathtraps because the contractor cheated on the details?

Tests have shown that 11 other tower blocks, in eight local council areas, have failed fire risk tests.

If you live in a council-owned tower, then unless you have seen test results to the contrary, you should consider your life to be at risk also.

And then there is the matter of damage to the surrounding community. The people of the Lancaster West estate next to Grenfell Tower are now said to be at risk, not only due to debris falling from the tower and the possibility that it might collapse at any moment, but also of asbestos poisoning.

That is why people like David Lammy MP are willing to accuse Theresa May and the Conservative Party that has been in office for the past seven years, and relaxed the rules on using dangerous substances in order to provide them with more profit.

Look at Mr Lammy’s response to Mrs May’s declaration of sympathy – he didn’t believe a word of it and he didn’t believe her assurances.

Considering the number of people who have died – and the number who may be victims in the future – would you?
