MOBO award winner Akala, explains why a lot of the concerns raised by Grenfell residents were ignored, "the people who died and lost their homes, this happened to them cause they are poor. We are in one of the richest spaces, not just in London but in the world and the repeated requests were ignored..." The " Government and RBKC must take responsibility to rehouse all 'who called Grenfell home' in the local area, regardless of their residential or immigration status," said Radical Housing Network, an alliance of groups fighting housing injustice of which Grenfell Action Group is a member. Compensation The government has offered each of the victims £500. Not sure how far this will go to rebuilding their lives. Perhaps the government could intervene and offer them each a property. Jeremy Corbyn has been called a Marxist loony for suggesting such an idea. Legal action The culprits may be charged with manslaughter. It turns out there are also other dangerous blocks up and down the country, landlords are checking their buildings for fire readiness and this can only be a good thing.

Several residents of a luxury housing block have complained that the arrival of the Grenfell Tower survivors will lead to a fall in property prices. This comes after the 2 billion Kensington Row Scheme acquired 68 "social housing" flats to permanently house the families from the Tower.

"And for someone to get it free, I would move." Fogarty replied: "You'd move?" Donna went on to say, "Our council tax bill is very, very high, our service charge bill is very, very high, so why should someone get it for free?" Forgarty hit back: "Lucky you that you've got that money and you haven't been burned out of your home." How you can help those affected by the fire 'Of the People, For the People' is an event that was held at Brixton Jamm on July 13th 2017 with the sole aim of raising funds to help assist the needs of the victims of Grenfell Tower.
