Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell has said that the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire were ‘murdered by political decisions’.
‘Is democracy working? It didn’t work if you were a family living on the 20th floor of Grenfell Tower. Those families, those individuals – 79 so far and there will be more – were murdered by political decisions that were taken over recent decades’.
‘The decision not to build homes, and to view housing as only for financial speculation rather than for meeting a basic human need, made by politicians over decades, murdered those families’.
‘The decision to close fire stations, and to cut 10,000 firefighters and then to freeze their pay for over a decade contributed to those deaths, and they were political decisions’.
