Johnson humiliated again as woman he appointed to Grenfell inquiry resigns over corrupt link to cladding firm

Remember Benita Mehra?

This Site tagged her up as a sign of Boris Johnson’s corruption when it was revealed that he had appointed her to sit on the panel of the Grenfell Tower inquiry.

She has links to the company which made the cladding blamed for accelerating the blaze.

I said her appointment was a sign that Boris Johnson, who now has a huge Parliamentary majority and may impose any changes to the structure of the United Kingdom that he sees fit, is rubbing our collective nose in it.

And now she has quit.

It seems that, while Mr Johnson was completely indifferent to the depth of feeling about his appointment of Ms Mehra… she was not.

In her letter of resignation, she said she recognised and respected the “depth of feeling” some people felt about her appointment.

According to the source article (see below), survivors group Grenfell United and bereaved families welcomed the news after previously raising concerns about her link.

I agree with their opinion: They said Ms Mehra had “done the dignified thing by resigning,” but added that the government “should never have put families in this situation”.

That’s right.

Mr Johnson has accepted the resignation.

Now he has a vacancy to fill.

One wonders if he has an even more inappropriate candidate in mind.
