Grenfell: Council leader urged to quit at tense meeting

Friday 25th August 2017

KENSINGTON and Chelsea council leader Elizabeth Campbell faced renewed calls to quit over her handling of the Grenfell disaster at a public meeting on Wednesday.

She was heckled throughout the meeting and one resident accused her of having “blood on her hands.”

However, Ms Campbell told the meeting: “I’m not stepping down, I’m stepping up, I’m doing everything we can to make everything better.”

But the resident replied: “You come to these meetings time after time and you do nothing.”

At least 80 people died in the west London tower block blaze and many more are missing, presumed dead.

Prime Minister Theresa May admitted earlier this week that the council “did not respond quickly enough after the fire.”

She confirmed that Kensington and Chelsea TMO — the organisation that ran Grenfell Tower — was to be stripped of responsibility for the rest of the estate.

Wednesday’s meeting was attended by council chief executive Barry Quirk who said the council hoped to treble the number of properties available to Grenfell survivors, which currently stands at 105.

But Ms Campbell was confronted by volunteer Niles Hailstones after claiming to have met him while co-ordinating relief efforts.

Mr Hailstones asked: “What conversation did we have to make you mention my name in front of a room of people as if we have a relationship?

“Don’t call my name, don’t act like we have a relationship. You don’t have a relationship with this community.”

He added: “You talk rubbish every week to us about ‘we’ll look into that,’ ‘we’ll do this, we’ll do that.’ You are not doing anything at all.”
