Surely it's a time for leadership by our government?As I mentioned in another thread, out of respect for the dead and missing, this probably isn't a subject we should politicise, for now.
I found it shocking that people were left to their own devices after the fire. Yes the council rehoused 44 families, but that's where it ended. Residents complained of no council or local government assistance. There was a total vacuum which again was filled by charities, volunteers and fireman doing overtime from the goodness of their hearts. Isn't this a basic responsibility of a government? We're not a third world country, but expecting volunteers to shelter, feed and clothe people was truly disheartening to see last night. Seems the people who have nothing were picking up the pieces of their neighbours.
Theresa May's response has been compared to George Bush and the disdain of the establishment for poor people. Is this inaccurate?
