There has never been a hypocrisy in modern British politics as tragic as the Tory response to the Grenfell Tower fire.
While Theresa May assessed the situation in private – no chance for her to be jeered at there, eh? – a certain Minister for Policing and Fire was receiving a very interesting assignment.
Yes, Nick Hurd, MP for Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner, is now the Chair of the Response Committee for the Grenfall disaster.
Why should you care?
Nick Hurd was also one of the 71 MPs who voted against legislation requiring landlords ensure their properties are fit for human habitation. The legislation that could have saved 17+ lives had it been passed and enforced,
Yeah, that Nick Hurd.
Hyprocrisy, thy name is Tory faux-compassion and thy ain’t wanted here thanks very much.
