21 months after the Grenfell fire:

  • 354 buildings still have flammable cladding in England
  • 176 high-rise buildings in London have still not removed the Grenfell-style cladding.
  • Grenfell bosses received more than £90k and housing staff £131k in bonuses, while some households STILL do not have permanent homes.

There’s STILL no #Justice4Grenfell

We need a General Election and to finally vote the Tories out.

That the establishment media and centrist/right-wing politicians still give any credence to Tony Blair or his views about the Labour Party says a lot about them. Fortunately the general public doesn’t take this same view.

A reminder:

Anna Soubry voted along with the Tories to implement austerity, the economic policy that resulted in Brexit and the death and suffering of the most vulnerable.

The UN report by Philip Alston on Tory Britain:

14 million people – a fifth of the UK population – live in poverty

Child poverty is predicted to rise 7% between 2015 and 2022

Homelessness is up 60% since 2010 and an  exponential growth in
the number of food banks.

A 49% real terms reduction in funding for local governments since 2010

When asked about the kind of future the UK faces, Mr Alston said:
“Britain is heading towards an alienated society where you have pretty
dramatic differences between the upper classes and the lower classes.”
