Grenfell Tower will forever stand as a rebuke to the right

^ this is well worth a read.

I thought it was unaffordable and pointless green energy initiatives and the “progressive” outfits that peddle them that were the cause of this.

“The Right”, left to itself, never would have placed immigrants in that situation.

No.

Austerity forced on the poor, disabled, voiceless, vulnerable, unemployed, ignored and the often forgot about - regardless of colour, ethnicity, religion, sex, or employment status - is finally being seen for what it actually is, 7 years and countless lives too late.

Let alone austerity on the emergency services, NHS, local councils, schools, libraries, parks, armed forces, intelligence services.

It’ll take years to recover from - even if it were started to be reversed today - but hopefully people will remember how austerity failed - and the true cost of it’s impact, both on people and services, for years to come…
