On Wednesday, June 14th there was a fire that ripped through the Grenfell tower blocks in Ladbroke Grove West London. Ladbroke Grove is in the borough of Chelsea and Kensington the richest borough in all of London. Grenfell tower blocks construction started in 1972 and completed in 1974, 42 years later they decided to carry out a renovation costing 8.7 million pounds, what they spent the money on I really can’t work it out, they used plastic cladding on the outside of the building for what reason my brain really can’t get around it, they didn’t even fix the lifts, this building is 220 feet tall, there are disabled people within this living space that for some strange reason were put on every other floor apart from the first, if these lifts broke down how were they meant to get into their apartments? Because I hope no one expects a wheelchair to be lugged up all those stairs I think the fuck not.
I’ve done further digging into this building and found out that the original architect Nigel Whitbread said in 2016 that the tower had been designed with attention to strength and further in said that ” and from what I can see could last another one hundred years” as in the tower, we are in 2017 he said this last year, so in the next coming years the building was going to collapse or something was going to happen to it anyways sounds all a bit too fishy to me. There was originally two contractors for the refurbishment but because one price was £1.6 million higher the owners of the building decided to go for WITT UK in the hours of the fire WITT UK removed all references from the refurbishment from their website, they had been responsible for the smoke ventilation and extraction system fitted to the building during the refit, but it’s not just their fault clearly as the owner ‘Royal Borough of Chelsea and Kensington’ and also the landlords ‘Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation’ are as of to blame, I’m pretty sure if contractors carry out a job you’re both meant to go back over them and find errors, but I’m pretty sure they didn’t do this, out of all the resistant materials in the world why on earth would you use plastic, no common sense and with no common sense we are calling justice.
I’ve heard so many different times that the fire started but if you was on the block and I get the time wrong please correct me, so it started at 1am or just a little before and the fire was still ablaze at 11:30pm a whole 22 hours later the fire was still not out, I also got two accounts of when the fire services arrived someone said 6 minutes after and someone said two hours after with my own initiative I really believe the two-hour account mainly because Ladbroke Grove is a deprived area these people as in the government don’t care about you I’m being 100 percent real they do not care, if this fire was in a middle or upper-class area the fire services would’ve been there in 5 minutes and the fire would’ve been out in 30 minutes let’s be honest. I commend the fire services for what they’ve done as I could never risk my life going into a burning building but they turned up late to a building that was burning incredibly fast, they didn’t turn up with the correct equipment, how can you not bring the correct equipment to a fire, and you call yourself a service, what service was you expecting to provide without the basic equipment, what I found extremely odd was that the fire services visited this estate on Saturday 10th June and went around to different apartments telling them how to act if a fire occurred, they were telling people to stay inside as the doors which were supposedly fire doors would hold the fire back long enough until they were rescued, fire doors can hold a fire back for about 30 minutes to 1 hour if they are installed correctly, how coincidental that a fire occurred 4 days later on the same estate, a woman even said that ” If I listened to the fire crew I wouldn’t of survived” Now isn’t this strange how can these people give such direct information out hoping to be protecting us and it was all lies, it’s like they didn’t want survivors they stopped looking for people at such an early time I was absolutely flabbergasted, giving this instruction to over 600 people whom these people have families to support and look after, for the people that issued out this ‘advice’ or ‘instructions’ you should feel disgraced, look how many people were screaming for help, trying everything in their power to stop what was happening, I’m sorry actually scrap that you had a poxy fire ladder that wasn’t even merely extendable to reach the higher floors, you had ridiculous squirts of water coming out of them hoses, those hoses should have been more powerful,there were no sprinklers throughout the whole building, hardly any fire alarms, the fire service should’ve been more prepared, but to the firemen and women that are actually giving us the truth about how many people have died the utmost respect for you.
A lot of people are saying this fire was an ‘accident’ it certainly was not an accident or a terrorist attack either, this was planned by the government when I heard that a fridge set fire to a whole 27 storeys I called bullshit straight away, yes it had faulty wiring but that man never knew and for the daily mail to plaster his photo all up in the media it was a very sickening move to make. The whole building had faulty electrics, residents would wake up to their plugs, lights, toasters smoking, they got so scared that they went straight to the council to report it, so they reported it and they got electricians out they same day who solved the problem, looking back now they didn’t do a very good job at all, how can a whole building have faulty electrics that is not humanely correct at all, this means this could’ve happened to anyone in the building and it wouldn’t of been their fault, it would’ve been the people that installed all the electrics and wiring into the building and that resides back on to the council since they are the owner and landlord of this property, what I fail to get my head around is for so many people to have ownage of a building and for it all to be incorrect, all these people were paying rent and council tax, rent for who? Council tax for who? They were living in a crumbling tower block, where was all their hard earned money going, when you had a chance to make an improvement with the money you did the complete opposite, the cladding was so cheap I want to know where the rest of the money went? And I want answers, 8.7 million got to be having a laugh ain’t ya, the cladding cost less than £100 and you put new windows in, for all of that for the whole building definitely under five thousand pounds probably even lower, so where is the rest of the money, I want to see a list of what you bought and where it was used around the building and why.
I woke up randomly at 2 am and felt a gist to go straight to Twitter as I did this and was scrolling for five minutes or maybe a little longer, I saw pictures from the fire and even videos of people screaming for help but these were media from people actually on Twitter nothing from the mainstream media which I found pretty odd because the recent attacks at London Bridge was on the TV and already in the newspapers straight away, you could see this fire from pretty much anywhere in London and smell the fumes from miles away, none of what was happening reached mainstream media till 4am, the blocks was on fire for three whole hours before the journalists decided to swoop out and come grab a story, children were screaming, crying saying they was going to die, they even alerted people by flicking the light switches on and off continuously for hours, when journalists turned up some of them purposely blocked the roads so ambulances couldn’t get down the street, a service that wanted to help the injured and escort away the dead bodies couldn’t even get proper access, the media and all the people involved within it absolutely disgust me, how can you continually lie about something and when we ask for the truth you want to stutter and act deaf, simple questions and you can’t answer, well at the end of this there will be a series of questions that I want to be answered and I know that everyone would want to be answered too. Twitter is the best platform for anything and everything but especially the news, without the people this wouldn’t have made it to the millions of people it did to alert everyone, these people that alerted people in the blocks, surrounding areas deserve a reporters degree they did so well, I woke up to actual people with their phones doing the work instead of big BBC news they did nothing, ITV news nothing.
QUESTIONS WE WANT TO BE ANSWERED
1. Why did you use cladding that was banned in the UK?
2. Why do you feel the need to continuously lie about the death poll?
3. Why were their bodies near the train tracks, instead of hospitals to be identified?
4. What do you think £5000 is going to do for the homeless families?
5. Why are you as the government not doing more to help?
6. Why did the media decide to plaster the man with the faulty fridge on the front page, knowing full well it was not his fault?
7. Regarding the banned cladding, was the overall design and materials tested and subsequently signed off by the relevant authorities?
8. Why was there a helicopter circling the building, what was the initial purpose?
9. Why was it broadcasted on the news at 4 am in the morning, when it started at just before 1 am?
10. What are you going to do for the victims, homeless families now?
I’m so upset and more importantly lived by how this has been approached, it hurts that the people that are meant to help us fed us lies, they fed the people on the estate lies they’ve fed the whole country lies and the most antagonising thing is they keep lying, you don’t even get anything positive from doing it, now they’ve covered up everything like death count, how it started etc they’ve only gone and done it because London riots part 2 is officially sparked and boiling up in the process, I also don’t understand that the first riots was sparked by police lying along with the government with Mark Duggan who was 29 years old when he was shot and killed by the police they covered up everything until we as the people, public, community stood together and picked this case that the police built against him apart. Liars will never prosper and I hope their careers get ripped from them.
Furthermore, I’ve been following the ‘government’ we don’t even have one what is it day 11? No government, anyways while this inferno was going on our prime minister God forbid ‘Theresa May’ was in Paris watching football that’s beside the point but she was abroad, our country has been in turmoil before the elections and even worse after them, so I don’t know how she got to the conclusion of deserving a break, I know ‘hate’ is an extremely harsh word but better still I hate Theresa May and all of the Conservative party, they’ve done nothing but wreck and destroy this country it was bad anyways but they’ve made it ten times worse. When I heard that she was giving away five million pounds to the people affected I was vexed, first of all where in the hell was this money coming from? They claim the UK is in debt and she whips out five million first of all that is not enough money, Theresa May earns £143,000 annually, just over £11,000 monthly and nearly £3000 weekly and she’s trying to tell us that 5 million is fine that equates to £8000 per family, okay you should see where I’m going these families all lived in London clearly, rent in London is so overly expensive for no reason at all, if they was doing worthwhile with the rent money fair enough but their not, £8000 is like five to six months rent, while I don’t think Theresa understand what’s about the clothes that go on their backs, food in their stomachs, a roof over their heads that will actually be sustainable, electronic goods like the basics a TV or even a radio, these kids once upon a time had toys to play with, even worse I’m hearing they want to move these people out of London, you CAN’T do that I repeat you CAN NOT do that, you can’t usher up people and prop them down into unknown areas, this is not their fault, if anyone from conservative reads this or the council let me tell you something it’s your fault, you think it’s only murderers that can have blood on their hands, news flash you lot have it on your hands too and it’s twice as bad, you lot sentence people without a second thought, now it’s your turn.
Now further along the figures that you lot love to issue out as the ‘truth’ no way in hell is their 19 people dead, 27 storeys and you want to tell us 19, really what dimension do you lot live in, we are not stupid and you lot are clearly not intelligent, sitting in parliament all day every day discussing crap, discuss the real underlying issues in this country, that you love to call ‘Great’ Britain! There’s nothing great about it. TWENTY-SEVEN STOREYS and 19 dead? Are you completely mad? 600 families, we said lived in there, people went by on the train and saw body bags full of people inside them, the community doesn’t lie, we are talking about people’s families, people need to know whether they’re dead or alive, there are even firefighters on the scene who spoke and said that they’ve found 160 dead bodies and they hadn’t even gone above the 14th floor, the fourteenth floor with thirteen more to go, I even heard that the police said the bodies are too burnt to even recognise who it is, um hello not being rude, but newsflash times two it’s the 21st century we have all the technology in the world, and if you didn’t know already dental records, the outside of your teeth is harder than any other substance in the human body, that’s why your teeth can withstand temperatures of more than two thousand degrees, so let the lies keep on coming.
Another thing I find extremely difficult to get my head around is that a few residents from the building said they saw a helicopter circling the building while the tower was ablaze, I found no problem with this till I later came across that it was just circling continuously didn’t offer no aid of help to the poor souls stuck inside, okay I know a helicopter can’t get too close to smoke because the engine will just retaliate and collapse but the least it could of done was either try and save people or even have a hose attached to tackle the inferno from the top, in Australia they have forest fires all the time, in their case they have self-flying choppers and drones which use infrared and visible light cameras to pinpoint the fire, this is something the UK should invest in, because if this happens again I don’t even want to begin to think what will happen.
Technology is becoming so advanced I keep saying this ” More could’ve been done” Self-flying in itself is clever enough if an electronic can target with infrared sensors a fire, can you see how much that could’ve done for this situation and many situations before, this puts firefighters out of much danger as possible, people might be thinking then we will get this service cut out more, it maybe will but in big fires like this we could use drones, when the small fires come into play we can use fire trucks it’s less of a risk, Theresa May has cut the services this year by a stupendous amount between 2013 and 2014 3,146 firefighters were injured due to them risking their lives saving people, yet she’s cut this service which shows she’s clearly irresponsible to carry a country, actually the UK is hardly a country it’s an island.
It’s now day three of me writing this blog and I always watch the news just to see what lies they’ve thought about each day, but most importantly I listen to the people, I’ve watched the videos I’ve seen DJ Isla, Akala, Krept and Konan, Lilly Allen and many others talk about this situation, and of course I’ve seen the videos of the council get attacked, if you was there I applaud you really I do, because they deserve everything they get, as I’ve been writing this I’ve been talking back and forth on this with quite a few people, and many people know I’m writing this so they always bring me more sources and what they’ve found so I got shown something and when I read it my face literally dropped, furthermore there was a family that was in the fire and they luckily escaped here’s what I found outrageous the council told a family that they’ll put them in a hotel, instead they put them back in a tower block in another area, are they taking the piss? Tower block and a hotel? Where is there a resemblance?
Furthermore I’ve been looking over this area over the years as this is an area I’m very familiar with, I grew up around West and I’ve seen it change magnificently some good but some extremely bad the media keep saying how North Kensington is an extremely ‘deprived’ area, okay we get it, it is no need to keep saying it. However White City is literally around the corner different boroughs I know but Westfield is literally on our doorsteps they’ve dumped a big massive shopping centre in a ‘underprivileged’ area, some of you must be thinking and your point is? My point is that these councils did this intentionally to run people like us out, for example, shepherd bush market used to be bustling on the weekends now it’s pretty much departed, all our livelihoods are slowly disappearing this is what they want everything our grandparents and the older generations worked for its gone, Shepherd’s Bush Westfield and Stratford Westfield are completely different, Shepherd’s Bush has all these big names like ‘ Gucci, Armani, Hugo Boss, Burberry, Calvin Klein’ who in gods name can afford all of these luxury brands in a ‘deprived’ area not us that’s who, and because we can’t afford them that’s not good enough for them, because they’re losing out on a big sum of money, and that’s all they care about, money is the root of evil and always will, this greed people seem to have is not normal. I’ve seen family businesses knocked down as they increase the rent so they clearly can’t afford it, once it’s sold they’ll put a mainstream business in its place like a McDonald’s or Costa in its place I’ve seen so many just auctioned off I find it highly ridiculous and rude. London is just overly expensive and I’ve never seemed to figure out why in the next coming years probably about 10 – 15 years tower blocks will no longer exist within this I mean the old ones, they’ll issue people to move out once everyone’s out they’ll knock it down and build luxury apartments that no one apart from the wealthy can afford, funny isn’t it? That’s why I want you lot to fight with all your almighty strength to keep your livelihoods alive.
Time for me to sum up everything I’ve written, what’s happened I can’t even put into words how upset I am, but for the victims and for everyone that was there and lives close to the area you must be distraught and angry and most importantly broken of everything you’ve gone/ still going through. The government and council have failed you and everything you believed in, the authorities don’t want to help you at all and you can see they don’t by how they’re approaching this, they’re ignoring you like you’re nothing and you’re someone, our voices deserved to be heard and listened too we are a community and we’re not alone within this, the authorities are scared of us speaking out because you people of Grenfell know the full truth and no one can tell you that you’re lying. The government have blood on their hands and because they think they’re so powerful they also think no one can harm them which is so wrong because they have a lot to answer for and soon enough they’ll crack, lies get people nowhere and for these people meant to be running this country/ island whichever one they’re doing a ghastly job of it.
I’m still confused as to why Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth turned up because all they did was shake hands, have small talk and leave it was completely pointless in my eyes, the queen went back to her 775 room palace and Theresa went back to number 10 living comfy while 100’s of people were declared missing, dead and homeless, and plus Theresa was late her time was up as she wasn’t even in the country.
The firefighters even though you did many wrongs you also did a few rights by risking your lives and honestly I commend you for that, and I know a few firefighters that have given out the correct death toll instead of the incorrect one.
Jeremy Corbyn and Sadiq Khan honestly hats off to you, because you’re the only people in the government that have my full trust, as soon as you both heard about this tragedy you both wrote letters to the conservatives and also came down to the area straight away and was being real with people and showing actual emotions.
People of the U.K. clearly need to wake up, these people you vote for and they promise you all this shit, it’s not true they want your votes to continue to fuck things up, it’s not hurting them it’s hurting us, you all have voices start using them, do you really think the news tells the truth, I used to trust everything I read in the sun and daily mail all the time, but I grew up and realised that what they write, what the journalists tell us are all lies, you see the wars going on the UK initiated them they give money to all these countries for war, they never want to calm down and think of the consequences, and now four tragedies have happened in the UK in less than 4 months first Westminster, then Manchester, then London Bridge and now Grenfell tower block, these terrorist attacks are all triggered by our government, they created this war been Afghanistan and all of the rest, we constantly bomb them and they expect for these people not to do the same, if we left them alone then we wouldn’t be in so much turmoil, we bomb them they do the exact same back, it’s constant bickering and I’m fed up of it, there is meant to be grown adults controlling the laws and country and the continuously fuck us over, Grenfell was no accident it wasn’t set alight by a fridge, a fridge really? What a disgusting lie, the whole building was faulty from top to bottom the residents complained and the council only went and put cheap plastic round the building which is actually banned the UK, they had all that money and didn’t even use it to its full function, I’m livid! I hope that everyone involved in the dysfunction of that entire building is sent to the USA and given actual life sentences.
Just remember Conservative MP’s voted against proposed new rules requiring private sector landlords to ensure their properties are fit for human habitation.
For all the volunteers, supermarkets and everyone else that hustled together to help these people that just shows how strong we as people are, it was honestly the most loving thing I’ve ever seen, God bless each and every one of you.
To the people of Grenfell, my deepest condolences are with you, I can not imagine what you must be going through, we will find the missing and find out who is dead, stand strong because I’ve got you and so do millions of other people, we know the full truth and I for one am not scared to speak out for what’s wrong and right.
If I find my blog in any newspaper or any mainstream media without my permission I will sue, that’s not a threat that’s a promise.
