Grenfell residents in ‘passionate angry’ exchanges with PM at Downing Street

Grenfell residents in ‘passionate angry’ exchanges with PM at Downing Street

As NPR's Merrit Kennedy reported, the Grenfell Tower fire has aroused the ire of those who feel it was caused by corporate malfeasance and who feel Prime Minister Theresa May's government is not doing enough to respond.

London police on Saturday said 58 people were confirmed dead or presumed dead following last week's deadly blaze in a public housing block in the city.

They previously estimated the figure to be 30.

"I thought the way they expressed themselves with a mixture of passion and reason was fantastic, and I hope it's the beginning of a process, not the end of a process, the beginning of a process of real listening between government, RBKC [the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea council], local residents, that will bring about lasting change". We must also prepare people for the bad reality that some people may not be identified due to the intensity of the fire.

"That is also an absolute priority for the investigation - to establish who they may be", he added.

Cundy said the police investigation into the blaze would look at the building and its refurbishment in 2016 and vowed to prosecute people "if there is evidence".

So, President Trump isn't under investigation after all?
Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Friday in a statement. To make sure the message got out, he hit as numerous Sunday shows as he could.


"During recent visits in Manchester and London, I have been profoundly struck by the immediate inclination of people throughout the country to offer comfort and support to those in desperate need", the queen said in a statement.

While he refused to speculate on the inquiry's outcome, Cundy said, "I would like to reassure everybody that we will be looking at all criminal offenses that may have been committed by any individual or organization". It will be wide ranging.

He said five of the dead had been formally identified, and it would be a slow and painstaking task to identify the others because of the intensity of the fire. What emerges in the coming weeks and months will be very hard for many people, including politicians and organisations, but we must get to the truth.

On Saturday, May met for two hours with 15 survivors and community leaders at her official residence at 10 Downing Street in London.

"There is a feeling from the community that they've been treated badly because some of them are poor, some of them may come from deprived backgrounds, some of them may be asylum seekers and refugees".

It quoted an unnamed representative as saying that the group had spoken about their "demands and what we expect".
