Is democracy working? It didn’t work if you were a family living on the 20th floor of Grenfell Tower,” Mr McDonnell said. “Those families, those individuals – 79 so far and there will be more – were murdered by political decisions that were taken over recent decades.
“The decision not to build homes and to view housing as only for financial speculation rather than for meeting a basic human need made by politicians over decades murdered those families. The decision to close fire stations and to cut 10,000 firefighters and then to freeze their pay for over a decade contributed to those deaths inevitably and they were political decisions.”
Reading that statement makes me feel sorry for the fire-fighters who risked their lives, they never complained over pay,they where there in eight minutes.how fast did Labour want them there?me i would wait till we identified all the aspects of this tragedy and for those who share the guilt let them pay. sad using the dead to score points.
