Grenfell Tower unanswered questions

Since the Grenfell Tower inferno tragedy, the corporate mainstream media is preventing the truth from being pursued by avoiding the most important yet basic questions from being asked. We are being told that a grieving resident claimed that the fire was caused by his `refrigerator exploding':
  1. This apparent confession comes from residents who obviously knew the man. Why is the mainstream media strangely silent about it. The Government can barely prevent leaks, yet we are expected to believe that residents who witnessed this claim can keep silent about the identity of this unfortunate man whose fridge apparently caused the fire.
  2. There are no questions raised about the safety of home appliances, particularly certain refrigerator brands.
  3. Angry residents have claimed that their ongoing demands for safety were ignored by the authorities. The majority of the residents in Grenfell Tower were poor people from ethnic minorities and immigrants, including Syrian refugees.
  4. Angry residents and locals stated that the reason why the residents concerns were continuously ignored was because they were poor people living in the heart of a highly prestigious and wealthy area of London and that the tower block was an ugly eyesore to the rich. In other words, they just didn't fit in and made the place look bad. This must have devalued the area. Cheap cladding was used to make Grenfell Tower look prettier for the surrounding wealthy elite. 
  5. Residents claim that when they raised their ongoing concerns, Conservative party representatives commented that they ought to be grateful instead of complaining.
  6. It is not unreasonable that greedy property developers wanted to profit from the area and undesirables were an obstacle. (NB. While he was London mayor, Boris Johnston came under fire for forcing residents from their homes to allow wealthy party donors to profit from redevelopment).
Former Prime Minister, David Cameron had a past reputation as "Mr Fix it". This was partly due to his strong media background as a PR man. This included protecting paedophiles in power since he axed the ITV's Cook Report after it began investigating prominent high profile paedophiles in the Thatcher Government. David Cameron was the Director of Corporate Affairs at Carlton Communications, it won the ITV franchise. While current Prime Minister, Theresa May was his Home Secretary, Cameron prevented various inquiries into historic establishment child abuse cases. Each appointed investigator was forced to resign thus preventing political child abusers from being exposed and brought to justice. So, it may be difficult for the victims of the Grenfell Tower tragedy to trust an inquiry to bring anyone in power to justice for corporate manslaughter. Since being forced to resign as Prime Minister and sacked as Chancellor of the Exchequer, both David Cameron and George Osborne have had a vicious vendetta against Theresa May. Since both were known for their vindictive cruelty and immorality, they had a reputation for skillful exploitation, therefore nobody should be surprised if the media is being used to meet their agenda. Since becoming Prime Minister in 2010, arms dealer David Cameron established a society of "Profit over People". He would have viewed his successor, Theresa May as failing to honour his toxic legacy. An example of this is the headline in The Daily Telegraph on 17 June 2017 in response to angry protests in the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower disaster. The newspaper sought to exploit the situation for political gain by branding the protestors as `hard left' infiltrators exploiting the pain of the victims and their families. Such headlines have all the characteristics of Cameron's influence.

To exploit the pain and suffering of others for political gain is abhorrent and The Daily Telegraph is a typical example of how low the right wing media is prepared to stoop. After the terror attacks in Manchester which killed 22 innocent people, including children, the people of Manchester called for the boycotting of The Sun newspaper when it used the suffering of the victims for political gain. They had previously caused outrage in Liverpool after The Sun blamed Liverpool football fans for the Hillsborough disaster.

It should be noted that it was the victims, their families and local residents who brought politics into the Grenfell Tower tragedy as it highlighted the devastating divisions between rich and poor amid an increasing climate of right wing anti immigration following the Brexit referendum. For The Daily Telegraph to exploit protestors demands for justice is utterly despicable. The tragedy also highlighted the fact that despite the warnings, the Conservative Government did not consider the lives of poor people a priority. However, this should not come as a shock considering the Tory party barbaric record of cruel disdain and torture of the poor as epitomised by Cameron and Osborne. Toilet paper such as The Sun and The Daily Telegraph only reinforce this NeoCon extremism by vilifying the audacity of the poor for having a voice instead of being kept in their place.
