A petition signed by 1,500 people demanded the resignation of the entire council leadership, with resident Eve Wedderburn telling councillors: '"We do not recognise your right to govern our community.'That's not how we do things over here, old chap.
Relatives of those killed called for mass resignations, with survivor Mahad Egal telling councillors: ‘You have murdered us. There is manslaughter here... You have committed a crime against all of us here.’In this country, that's for the police and justice system to decide, not howling demagogues.
The meeting was later adjourned after Ms Jamalvatan collapsed and had to be treated by paramedics.
Earlier she had made an impassioned plea to the council for equal treatment for rich and poor in the affluent borough.
Waving the keys to her former flat in the tower, she said: ‘The UK is accusing other countries about a lack of human rights, but there are lots of people from those counties living in the UK. Why don’t you care about human rights here?’Where have your 'human rights' not been met, here? What sort of treatment do you think you'd have got in your home countries over a fire that burned you out of your home?
That's it. Enough is enough. But if Grenfell Tower has done one positive thing, it's got to be alerting a wider audience to the totally alien culture that's grown up, unnoticed, in our midst.
Sadly, I fear it's much too late to do anything about it.
