[100 word news] – Diane Abbott blames ‘Tory attitudes to social housing’ for Grenfell Tower deaths

Diane Abbott has suggested the Conservatives are to blame for the Grenfell Tower tragedy, saying:

‘Grenfell Tower is not just an accident. Grenfell Tower is not just an unfortunate incident. Those hundreds of people that died are a direct consequence of Tory attitudes to social housing’.

‘The Tories think people in social housing are second-class citizens. And, as we have seen from Grenfell House, they are offering them second-class standards of safety’.

Ms. Abbot said the fire was ‘a direct consequence of outsourcing, and a direct consequence of deregulation’.

‘I think we are going to find that the numbers of people that have died will be in triple figures, just because it’s a 24-storey block’.
