Caroline Pidgeon: Government must act to avoid another Grenfell

Caroline Pidgeon was on Sunday Politics London today calling for action on cladding. Three years after the Grenfell tragedy, not enough has been done to remove the  cladding that caused the fire to spread so quickly. She described how people were frightened to go to sleep in their own homes.

  • Another example of why “Black Lives Matter”..

    Does anyone seriously believe that, had Grenfell been a luxury apartment block, the moral prevarication and lack of action would have occurred?

    Thank you for fighting for justice over this Caroline.

    It should not have ever had the need of fine people like this doing this, the thing should have been solved imediately.

    Many councils are Conservative, many Labour.

    The govt should have given millions to councils to purchase houses or flats or join with landlords to move people.

    It could have been done in months, and would have been by an FDR type.

    Utterly appalling.
