Appalling treatment of these poor people. And Teresa May publically stated that everyone would be permanently housed within three weeks. Once again no one held accountable so let the people suffer, again.

There is a housing shortage in the UK, and this problem is amplified in London and especially in areas like Kensington and Chelsea. How so many people that come to this country illegally are given housing is a credit to the councils, where do they find housing for so many people coming to the UK demanding to be house? So, May's statement that all would be housed in three weeks was ill informed, stupid and impossible. What needs to happen is the UK needs to start asking generally who should be housed and who should be deported, which would free up housing for the poor people of Grenfell.

Who are "The people" you claim to be? There was a fire, people were made homeless, how does that make you "The people"? Are you just jumping on a band wagon of others that suffered, like selfie taking idiots at the site of the fire.

A forgotten factor in this, bearing in mind the chronic shortage of social housing in that area, are the people who were in desperate need of accommodation and were seeing their names rise ever nearer to the top of the council housing list, only to find that, due to Grenfell, they may never achieve their hopes.

Threads like this will be the end of this forum. I think some comments on here are probably prosecutable. It's a great shame 'cos many people who use it - and that includes merely reading it - are decent and respectful of all human life especially those who for no fault of their own are having a hard time in this world. Please stand up to vileness. I hope these threads are removed asap.

Blimey. You know there are some unsavoury people on this thread, when "we'vehadourfuns" posts come across as reasonable content by comparison.

Again, I suspect the anonymous individuals behind the crass posts in this thread, are probably just being provocative out of boredom and to wind people up. They then pull the "freedom of speech" card as if a privately owned UK forum works within the same parameters as the U.S constitution with the 1st amendment. Kids eh?

Isn't there some EDL/BNP forum where these people would feel a bit more at home?
Eighty people died and hundreds more lost their homes. Most of the latter are still homeless. To a normal person, it doesn't matter a jot what their place of birth or immigration status is, it's a dreadful thing for anyone to go through.

@ Gus- You are absolutely right. Accidents happen, and the residents of Grenfell should accept that some will be moved to other areas temporarily.

"Freedom of speech and all that." There is a distinctly crossable line when it comes to freedom of speech - and alas for those like @oh look, that transgression comes when it spills over into hate speech. Which is illegal. I grew up near Grenfell. Something that always strikes me is that it's never the people who live in areas actually affected by immigration who have the problem; it is people in places such as Lewes, which has very little immigration, who get their knickers into an unholy twist about it. Sick, pathetic people who do, indeed, deserve to be removed from this forum - all they do is drag it down and debase it. You have to wonder how they would respond if they ever faced a real tragedy and others reponded to them in such a heartless and inhuman manner.

Rubbish, ever thought why so many people move from London to Lewes? Its because they grow up or lived in areas effected by immigration, and are speaking first hand about how immigration can totally destroy communities and areas.

It appears that the BBC have a link on their news site that gives the price % increase of house prices relating to your postcode. A house in Lewes could buy 11 houses in the North East, so why not rehouse all Grenfell residents and the homeless in the North East, you can house 11 families instead of 1 in the South East, problem solved.
