this is a scandalous tragedy for all concerned

Grenfell Action Group

Watching breaking news about the Grenfell Tower fire catastrophe. Too soon (5am) to even guess at numbers of casualties and fatalities. Our heartfelt and sincere condolences to all who have perished, to the injured, to those who are bereaved or are still searching for missing loved ones.

Regular readers of this blog will know that we have posted numerous warnings in recent years about the very poor fire safety standards at Grenfell Tower and elsewhere in RBKC.

ALL OUR WARNINGS FELL ON DEAF EARS and we predicted that a catastrophe like this was inevitable and just a matter of time. Below is a list of links to previous blogs we posted on this site trying to warn the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea who own this property and the Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation who supposedly manage all social housing in RBKC on the Council’s behalf:

What these bodies cannot deny, however, is that they not only read our blog but are often forced to act as a consequence of the issues that we raise.

The most recent example of the Grenfell Action Group’s influence can be evidenced by the fact that the KCTMO have finally responded to our long standing concerns about the lack of fire safety advice provided to their tenants and leaseholders. The Grenfell Action Group has a long history of raising concerns about the almost criminally lax manner in which the KCTMO treats fire safety issues and we are on record as stating that it is our belief that a serious and catastrophic incident will be the undoing…

The @BBCNews and @bbclaurak are still knowingly misrepresenting @jeremycorbyn over shoot-to-kill even after yesterday’s events in London!

The SKWAWKBOX

In the wake of last night’s awful events in London, the 4th most-watched item on the BBC’s website is an interview between Laura Kuenssberg and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

One that the BBC knows is misleading and has still not corrected.

As the SKWAWKBOX showed in January, Ms Kuenssberg was found guilty by the BBC Trust of misleading reporting in the video in which she presents Corbyn’s comments on the ‘shoot to kill’ policy as if he were saying he would not authorise it in a ‘Paris-style’ terror situation.

He said no such thing.

Howl about this blatant misrepresentation and blatant breach of BBC impartiality – to your neighbours, friends, relatives and to the BBC.

Many on social media already are:
