Theresa May simply refuses to do right by the victims of the Grenfell Tower blaze

By the back door: Theresa May skulks into St Paul’s Cathedral for the Grenfell Tower memorial service – out of sight of the public.

Can anything be done to repair Theresa May’s moral compass? The evidence suggests not.

Grenfell Tower is a huge case in point:

Mrs May failed to react with any speed to the tragedy last June – she wanted to leave it to others.

She eventually promised to re-house the families who had been made homeless by the blaze within three weeks – but most of them are still homeless six months later.

She has refused to provide money to fit sprinklers into tower blocks, even though she has been told they would hugely reduce the risk of further tragedies like that which befell Grenfell.

And, of course, the biggie: After dithering for a day, Mrs May was shamed into visiting Grenfell – but decided to do it privately, by means of a stage-managed photo opportunity:

As Hicham Yezza tweeted: “Theresa May has just “privately visited” #GrenfellTower She didn’t meet residents or media, but was quite happy to get a photo-op out of it.” Were the firefighters hand-picked?

Clearly she got onto the site via a back door. It wasn’t the first time:

On her general election campaign, Theresa May made a habit of entering and leaving stage-managed events by back doors and (in this case) fire exits.

It took another day for Mrs May to meet the victims of the fire, and even then she had to run away:

Given this history, it is no surprise that our backdoor prime minister hid from the public at the Grenfell memorial service.

The fact that she turned up at all simply shows the extremity of her hypocrisy.

Theresa May was sneaked into the Grenfell Tower memorial service in London … entering through the back door of St Paul’s Cathedral.

The service was attended by dignitaries including Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and the Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

The Prime Minister eschewed an entrance through the front of the building and instead opted to make a subdued entry through St Paul’s churchyard gardens, before taking her seat next to Communities Secretary Sajid Javid.

Her attendance at the service comes after she was accused of ‘failing to show humanity’ when she failed to speak with survivors in the days immediately after the tragic blaze.

    You can’t repair a moral compass that was never there. I bet you that as a child she pulled the wings off of flies

  2. NMac

    A so-called Memorial Service will be the signal for the Tory Party to conveniently forget all the victims of this outrage.
