Sid Skill shouts
People call for the council to go as they are failing the residents
of North Kensington, particularly those affected by the Grenfell fire
The council and the management body they set up created a fire trap
by cost cutting and dangerous changes to the tower
including the cladding, which was improperly designed and made of
cheap, unsuitable material, improper gas
installation. There was only a single exit and no proper water supply
to the highest floors for firefighting. The council
arranged for fire inspections which were deliberately inadequate to
save costs, and ignored the many complaints
about safety from residents.
Since the fire their response has been pathetic, with those made homeless
still waiting to be rehoused, families
living in a single small hotel room or placed in poor temporary accomodation,
or offered housing a hundred miles away...

'Housing is a Right, Not a privilege'
Few have any faith that the inquiry will be anything other than
a whitewash. Or that any of the Government's promises will be kept.
