The Queen has today met with residents of Grenfell Tower a day after Theresa May avoided them due to security concerns.
Her majesty met with local residents and community representatives along with the Duke of Cambridge, as well as paying tribute to the “brave” firefighters and the “incredible generosity” of volunteers now offering support.
Yesterday the Prime Minister was accused of failing to show humanity after she spoke with emergency service crews during a visit to the site but refused to meet any survivors of the tragedy and blocked media access.
Credit poured in for Jeremy Corbyn’s statesmanlike response to the Grenfell Tower disaster which has claimed at least 17 lives and left hundreds of people homeless.
The Labour leader was pictured at the scene today hugging victims of the tragedy and meeting with local resident at St Clement’s Church in west London.
Just think about how insulting the phrase “security fears” is. Describing the very community who already feel neglected/at arm’s length.
