What did the Tottenham MP David Lammy say about the fire in Kensington?
Speaking on Radio 4's Today Programme, he said:
"This is the richest borough in the country treating its citizens in this way and we should call it what it is, it’s corporate manslaughter. That’s what it is and there should be arrests made, frankly. It is an outrage. Many of us across the country have been caught up in an election, knocking on housing estate doors right across the country, travelling up to the top floors of tower blocks and we know as politicians that the conditions in this country are unacceptable. We built buildings in the 70s, those 70s buildings - many of them should be demolished. They haven’t got easy fire escapes, they haven’t got sprinklers, it’s totally totally unacceptable in Britain that this is allowed to happen and people lose their lives in this way. People should be held to account."
