Brits Are Upset With The Prime Minister's Response To The London Fire

British Labour MP David Lammy called for arrests to be made over what he labelled "corporate manslaughter", lambasting Britain's public housing crisis which he says has left towers like Grenfell in appalling condition.

"There are 58 people who we have been told were in Grenfell Tower on the night that are missing and therefore, sadly, I have to assume that they are dead".

At least 58 people may have died in the massive fire that engulfed a 24-storey residential tower housing over 100 families in west London, police said today, warning that the number "may increase".

But that figure could change, he said.

In a television interview Friday, she sidestepped questions over whether she had misread the public mood. "In recent months, the country has witnessed a succession of bad tragedies".

A fire broke out at Grenfell Tower in the early hours of 14 June.


Prime Minister Theresa May has said the support given to survivors and the families of those who died was "not good enough" and there were "huge frustrations" on the ground as people struggled to find information.

May, already under pressure after a botched snap election, is facing widespread criticism for her response to the blaze. Some have even referred to it as her Hurricane Katrina moment. May was criticised for not meeting with the victims and those displaced by the fire, with the offical line from her office claiming it was due to " safety concerns".

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". According to BBC, the cladding had a plastic core and was similar to that used by high-rise buildings in France, the United Arab Emirates and Australia, which had also suffered fires that spread. Many residents are still unaccounted for, and police said some remains may never be identified. Community groups have said that warnings about poor fire safety have always been ignored, and that in the aftermath of the disaster, officials failed to immediately take care of those affected.

"There is considerable damage within Grenfell Tower", he said. Some people then left the building though others remained inside.

Mohammed Alhajali, who was 23 and a civil engineering student, was the first victim to be named.

The Grenfell Tower housed about 600 people in 120 apartments. She has also pledged $6.4 million in support to the residents and promised that those who lost their homes would be relocated within three weeks.
