Glastonbury grotesquerie

From somersetlive we hear that Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell has already identified who is responsible for the Grenfell horror.

The families who died in the Grenfell Tower fire were “murdered by political decisions", according to the Shadow Chancellor.

Labour MP John McDonnell was speaking at an event at the Left Field area of Glastonbury Festival today (June 25) when he made the remarks.

He was speaking alongside Jonathan Bartley and Faiza Shaheen at the event called Is Democracy Broken?

McDonnell told the crowd the families were “murdered by political decisions" in recent decades.

I suppose it is Glastonbury where nobody is expected to be rational or reasonable, not even the Shadow Chancellor.

There is a complicated and intriguing history of the tower blocks in Liverpool which might not stand close inspection. There has been extensive demolition. The record of the Liverpool Labour Party and during the time of McDonnell might be interesting.

Hasn't crossed the mind at all that one bomb would have taken out the bulk of the Islington set.

Demetrius - that sounds as if it is worth researching.

James - didn't cross my mind either - honest.
