Grenfell: two years on – where’s the justice?
Two years after the Grenfell fire of 14 June 2017, delays and inaction continue. Survivors of the fire, families of the 72 people killed and the wider community of north Kensington are still being consistently failed by the state and the local Kensington and Chelsea council.
The Grenfell Inquiry chair, Martin Moore-Bick, has once again delayed publication of his report into the first phase of the inquiry. Originally due out in spring, it will now not appear before October. The inquiry itself will not resume until next year, and the police say they do not anticipate bringing any criminal charges until 2021 at the earliest. After two years, a dozen families have still not been offered new permanent accommodation – and the inadequacies of working class housing in the borough have barely been addressed.
