Theresa May vilified by Londoners over Grenfell Tower disaster and her lack of response

[Image from Twitter.]

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?

    I sincerely someone has seized or safeguarded all the files and paperwork re-Grenfell Tower. There must not be yet another whitewash. As David Lammy has said this is a crime. Incidentally they are still frightened to release anything approaching the true casualty figure.

    It is good to see May being hounded wherever she goes. Hard to believe now that only two months ago she was gloating and strutting around in all her arrogance threatening to wipe out the Labour Party. Now she and her Nasty Party cling on to office by their dirty corrupt fingernails.

    Social housing is being destroyed by the nasty party, almost throwing the residence onto the street as soon as camerun walked into No/ ten, they hate us because we cannot afford to buy the houses we are in. There is so much heart ache for the tenants and worry. She needs to resigne and let labour get the country back to normality.
    There is no respect for us, so why should anyone respect them, Tories are a disgrace to humanity.

    When I click on “I like this” my click does not increase the number of people who liked this as well. i.e., I clicked I like this as I always have in the past but in recent days. i.e., just now there are 4 people who like the post and, although I have also liked it, my click does not increase the number to 5 like it used to. Any ideas please?

    What has also been referred to on several public interviews is how it was that many specialist organisation risk, fire, Building Control and H&S etc had all been bringing these urgent issues to Governments attention for many years BUT had been ignored or overridden by Government Department own “experts” who knew better and did nothing. I beg to submit that the reason these independent fire risk experts were ignored was not because the Government had better more experienced advisors but because many interested commercial parties had been heavily counter lobbying Gov. Ministers and their civil servants to not implement or tighten the regulations and cramping the free living style and costs of contractors, manufacturers, councils and civil services. We know anti expert lobbying goes on in every area of Government where only the Producers, Manufacturers and the Elite get the ears of the Ministers and civil servants and the nuisance experts and free speakers get no or little audience at all to make their case for the betterment of the real population. The lobby agenda is to delay and negate anything that causes any problems, costs or telling the truth until the truth is finally dragged out of them screaming by such as the current undeniable catastrophe or finally the real truth on any lobbied subject cannot be delayed or denied any further by the powers that be. I hope the Inquiry actually unearths all those civil servants and ministers who despite being given evidence to the dangers by coroners real fire experts still chose to delay or ignore this advice favouring whoever it was that lobbied them to sit on improvements. And it is all those commercial interests, companies and government departments that lobbied and won in delaying all the recommendations that we need to have disclosed publically as their self interests are as much to blame for all these deaths. Political
    donations have anything to do with their lack lustre delaying tactics?
