‘The tears may never stop’, says Dent Coad

Friday 23rd June 2017

EMMA DENT COAD said yesterday that the Grenfell Tower disaster had revealed the true face of Kensington.

In her maiden Commons speech, the first ever Labour MP for Kensington paid tribute to those affected by the horrific fire.

“The horror and fear of this man-made catastrophe will be etched on all our hearts for ever,” she said.

“The tears may never stop. I know this from the grief etched on the faces of people in Ladbroke Grove.

“Total strangers approaching me for comfort, reassurance, a question, a hug, to share their fears and disbelief that such horror could be visited upon our neighbourhood.

“And the burnt-out carcass of Grenfell Tower and all it represents lours over us.”

She criticised those who claim social tenants have “no right to live in desirable Kensington” while ignoring the poverty and overcrowded housing that exists in the area’s most deprived pockets.

Ms Dent Coad told MPs: “The people who have been failed want justice, accountability and an honest and transparent process to achieve it.”

She had earlier called on PM Theresa May to reverse cuts to fire services and to order a public inquiry into the tragedy.
