Cladding Began Under Blair Government

After Corbyn blamed the Grenfell fire on austerity – and by implication the Tories – Theresa May pointed out that the cladding of buildings began under Labour during the Blair years. Never let the facts get in the way of an opportunity to rile things up, eh Jezza…

Housing Minister Takes Pasting From Angry Grenfell Residents

Alok Sharma only got the housing brief the day before the Grenfell fire. Today he was on BBC2‘s Victoria Derbyshire programme to face questions from very angry residents, live on air. Brave decision to put him up…

Lammy Suggests Grenfell Cover-Up By Police and Emergency Services

In his defence it has been a stressful couple of weeks. But peddling conspiracies about the government and police is not exactly responsible…

Labour MPs Condemn McDonnell’s Grenfell Remarks

Shadow housing minister John Healey and veteran Labour MP Margaret Hodge have condemned John McDonnell’s remarks on the Grenfell tragedy, which he described as “murder” caused by “political decisions. Hodge said on the Daily Politics: “that is language of the hard left which is not done in my name”Still, good to rile up the nutters online.

Hospital Admits Sun Man Didn’t Impersonate Grenfell Relatives

An allegation made against a reporter working for the The Sun, whipped up by the Guardian and left-wing news sites, has turned out to be completely untrue. King’s College Hospital had “formally written” to IPSO to complain about a journalist who was accused of impersonating a friend or relative of a Grenfell victim while seeking an interview in the aftermath of the fire. The Sun strongly denied this at the time, and now the complaint has been withdrawn. A News UK spokesman said:

“They accepted that our reporter did not ‘impersonate relatives’ or ‘friends’. As a result of this the hospital has withdrawn any IPSO complaint.”

Will MediaGuardian, who sent this false allegation viral, ensure their correction is just as prominent?

May: We Failed Grenfell Victims, I’m Sorry

Humility from the PM during a sombre Queen’s Speech debate this afternoon.

Mirror Front Page Wrong

Theresa May certainly deserves criticism for the way she has handled the Grenfell fire. But this front page claiming she didn’t meet survivors is just plain wrong. May met survivors yesterday in two separate visits…

Corbynistas Peddle Grenfell D-Notice Fake News

Prominent Corbynistas have been peddling false claims this afternoon that the government has issued a D-Notice preventing the reporting of the death toll from Grenfell. The lie was reported by the prominent Corbynista site Skwawkbox, which claimed “multiple sources told the Skwawkbox that the government has placed a ‘D-notice’ on the real number of deaths in the blaze”. The ‘story’ was also promoted on Twitter by journalists from two other viral Corbynista sites, Evolve Politics and Novara Media.

A spokesman for the Defence and Security Media Advisory Committee, the body which issues D-Notices, told Guido this afternoon:

“The Secretary of the Defence and Security Media Advisory Committee has not issued any D-Notice in relation to Grenfell.”

These Corbynistas, who work closely with Jeremy Corbyn’s office, are lying to their readers. They are deliberately peddling knowingly false conspiracies to suggest some government plot about Grenfell, and getting thousands of hits off the back of it. Astonishingly low stuff.

UPDATE: Evolve Politics strenuously deny they promoted the story “anywhere on its pages”. We do not contest that.
