I’m still just trying to see what the media puts together as the investigation continues. I do know there are plenty of angry people, and if Corbyn is right, May is going to have a hell of a Question Time next week, much of her Homeland group to do some explaining in meetings.

It’ll be interesting to see the millionaires who seldom live in their luxury flats are willing to put up funds to put those displaced in decent housing.

Theirs a difference between someone that wants a photo op and someone that’s a person of the people and is genuine about it. The difference is easy to see here.

The people are impressed with May! LOL

The question is how much longer will she last?

Sadly it was all about saving money to beautify the building.

Oh yeah, let’s go, world! Let’s start the truth speaking, the truth in motion, the truth of being human—that our relationships with our brothers and sisters are what truly make our lives meaningful, not pocketing dough while others die. And we all KNOW this, and we’ve forgotten it.

Yes, I still like money very much. And I’d like to think we can have both physical and relational abundance. But if you forget your fellow beings, your joy is not true.

Here is one more.

He was responding to this.

Ah yes, terrible man! Actually goes into the neighborhood and listens and comforts. Terrible man.

Listen up, Economist, this IS a political tragedy, and y’all would do well to stop asking us to forget what your beloved austerity and corpse favoring does to us.

PM May invited a group of survivors to 10 Downing today. From HuffPo:

Theresa May has sought to quell anger over the Grenfell Tower disaster by inviting survivors to Downing Street – after the embattled PM was forced to flee crowds of furious residents on Friday.

Residents and volunteers will attend a private session at No 10 on Saturday, it was reported, after intense criticism of May’s approach in the aftermath of the blaze, which claimed at least 30 lives and injured dozens more.

Residents of the destroyed tower said May was far too slow to visit the stricken community, that the building had been unsafe and that officials have failed to give enough information and support to those who have lost relatives and their homes.

Thank you for covering the Grenfell Tower tragedy Subir.

It’s all so sad. The sheer awfulness of the factors in the fire and resulting deaths has ripped open, for all to see, the real effects of classism, austerity and disregard for the well-being of those on the lower rungs of the privilege and economic ladder.

The emotional anguish of MP David Lammy:

Then this poor woman showing the demeaning letter local residents just received pouring salt on their wounds:

It’s all been laid bare.

By the way, the “anti-social and harassing behavior”? Playing with “balls in the area”. Heaven forbid that the kids get to have a little outdoor time.

David Lammy, you are awesome here. Chills.
