Protesters visit Grenfell councillors
North Kensington, London. Mon 27 Nov 2017
Camaigners meet outside Latimer Road station, close to Grenfell Tower,
with another fine banner by Andrew
'Crazy Ball Head Out' - and wanted posters
A poster names the new Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea leader
and the former leader NIcholas Paget-Brown who she replaced
'Wanted Rock Feilding-Mellen - Criminal Charges Now'
Feilding-Mellen was responsible for the cost-cutting use of flammable
tiles and failed to respond to residents
who pointed out the dangers of Grenfell Tower. Though built to suitable
fire safety standards, the dangerous
modifications made under his management made it a fire hazard - and
they also approved fire safety inspections
by a consultant they knew would allow them to get away with an unsafe
The protesters march down Bramley Road to Councillor Rock Feilding-Mellen's
but he moved out days after the fire and hasn't been seen in the area
since. The property has been let by
agents - and its current residents have no connection with Cllr Feilding-Mellen
A man living in the house comes out and tells the protesters he has
no connection with the missing councillor
but the place, a stone's throw from Grenfell Tower, has a significance
which has outlasted Feilding-Mellens flight.
The marchers reach the street where Cllr David Lindsay
He represents Norland Ward, but lives closer to Grenfell Tower.
Several people speak at the rally
and Cllr Lindsay comes out and tries to answer the protesters' questions
but gets into some angry arguments
The protesters march down to Portland Road
where they stop outside the home of another councillor who doesn't
appear. All RKBC councillors now have their
address as the Town Hall on the web site, presumably to protect them
from such protests.
and the protesters march off - and I go home
