THE HORNETS NEST NORTH KENSINGTON BLOG REACTION TO THE GRENFELL TOWER BLOCK DISASTER

From the Hornets Nest


Readers of the Peterborough Tribune will know that from time to time we include posts from THE HORNETS NEST a blog like ours that fearlessly looks at what is going on inside the Town Hall of the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea.

This started after The Hornets Nest exclusively tipped us off that Cllr Marco Cereste was allegedly hatching a financial plot with the then Leader of RBK&C Sir Merrick 'Pooter' Cockell, to transport en masse several hundred (possibly a few thousand) social housing tenants from North Kensington to Peterborough.

The dumping of their North Kensington residents on Peterborough would have freed up several rows of carriage houses for converting into multi-million pound prime investment properties.

Cllr Cereste (and his Conservative cohorts which included the current Planning Committee chief Cllr Chris Harper) had also negotiated from the amazingly wealthy Royal Borough, we understand, a sizeable cash bounty for the PCC coffers, in return for our City taking the North Kensington residents.  

The PBROTrib has also from time to time carried blogs from the new Labour MP for Kensington Emma Dent-Coed.

Her letter relating to the Grenfell Tower block tragedy is reproduced below and we know the multi-cultural residents of Peterborough would wish to send their heartfelt collective condolences to all concerned, and also to those who are now tasked and working to recover those persons who perished in this, and other all too frequent incidents.  


PLEASE DON'T DRAG POOTER COCKELL INTO THE TRAGEDY
Posted: 18 Jun 2017 10:57 AM PDT
In 2013 the leader of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea was none other than that awful
political poseur, Sir Merrick 'Pooter' Cockell.

Pooter had a phenomenal record for expense claiming on international 'fact finding' sprees...until the Dame put a stop to his little games killing off his hopes of a peerage.

Pooter Playing Elder Statesman!

Money mad Pooter was at one time triple jobbing on the taxpayer to such an extent that he was earning more than the PM!


Nothing gave Pooter greater pleasure than being driven around in the mayor's new Bentley and hobnobbing with rich property magnates.

Not bad for an ex-fag salesman with not a qualification to his name. 
Pompous Pooter has now re-invented himself as a lobbyist and an adviser to PA Consulting (thanks to his mate, Jon Moynihan).

Obviously, the last thing Pooter wants is to be dragged into the Grenfell Tower tragedy so we need to make clear this threatening letter, to Eddie Daffern of Grenfell Action Group, was sent out in July 2013 and Pooter resigned in May, 2013 so that's ok then....

The Rt Hon. Amber Rudd 17th June 2017
The Home Secretary
2 Marsham St,
Westminster,
London
SW1P 4DF


Dear Home Secretary
I welcome the recent announcement that the very necessary step has been taken to appoint a government Task Force to coordinate all relief and support in this disaster. This is not a moment too soon: we have been hearing this morning of experienced and organised volunteer groups’ despair at being asked to stand back when there was little or no help to replace them.
I have been in discussion over the past few days with local charities, voluntary organisations, and groups of volunteers working for affected residents. They have made representations to me, on the basis of which I I have collated a list of the following key issues they are facing and insist that the following actions are taken:
Immediate support for those affected
  1. No household or individual should have to contact many different parties to get the help they need. Every affected household or individual should have a named officer/social worker, and any handovers done with named replacements. Support should be available 24 hours of the day, 7 days a week.

  1. There must be officials from all relevant government departments and agencies on site to deal with benefit claims, identity documents, any issues related to immigration status and all other key administrative and bureaucratic issues.

  1. Those who need to bury their loved ones must be linked up with the free funeral services being so generously offered.

  1. I have been told that some people who have lost their homes have been sent out of borough and are being given only £10 per day subsistence. If this is accurate it must be addressed without delay.

  1. Those affected and in employment must receive help to inform employers so that they do not lose work because of this disaster.

  1. A very firm commitment that in the short, mid and long-term, residents affected are located within the borough or in close neighbouring boroughs - so they are close to their local networks, schools, work and communities - must be formally announced and communicated to all residents without delay.

  1. As soon as possible I would like to see a full and detailed breakdown of every category and approximate of person, what is being done for them, and where they are being relocated. This to include any temporary or AirB&B guests who may have been staying in the building.

  1. Information, reassurance and advice must be given to neighbouring residents living in towers, along with a timetable of safety checks, especially those in the Silchester estate.

Co-ordination of relief response
  1. There must be a single point of contact and a coordinated response to offers of support by volunteers whose skills and experience are needed, such as counsellors and psychotherapists and solicitors.
  1. There must be regular briefings throughout the day to all those involved in the relief effort, with a single point of contact in each group and a single point of contact for requests for information.

  1. Links must be established between donated funds and those who so desperately need them. Kensington and Chelsea Foundation are a well-established group and we need to see a robust method of getting funds out where needed and without delay.

I appreciate that fulfilling the above will require significant resources and do not want to minimise the scale of the task ahead. No doubt your team has collated a similar task list and I would be grateful for sight of this, and to have your firm commitment that all the above issues have been taken on board.
Finally, I would like to pay tribute to the extraordinary response of both the emergency services and the local community. Their input has been exceptional and unprecedented and offers an example to us all of what can be achieved when communities work together.
I look forward to your early response.
A copy of this letter is being sent to Councillor Nicholas Paget-Brown, Leader of Council of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
 


Emma Dent Coad

MP for Kensington



In addition, The Independent quotes lawyers Bindmans:

John Halford, a public law specialist for Bindmans solicitors, who have acted for the Hillsborough families, among other high-profile cases against public bodies, said there were various ways in which criminal proceedings could be brought against public authorities, if they were found culpable in the catastrophe.

He said the Crown Prosecution Service could use health and safety law to prosecute public bodies, as in the case of Jean Charles de Menezes, an innocent man who was shot dead by anti-terrorist officers at a London tube station.

“There may be some pressure on the health and safety executive over the future taking of criminal proceedings against public authorities if it turns out that the building was not as it should have been legally.

“If it turns out that there is state responsibility, people could also seek compensation under the Human Rights Act – although this is usually not the first thing on people’s minds in these cases.”
