You were for 'seizing' the properties. Big difference than 'asking' the owners to help out.

This does sum up the problem we have with the press here in the UK though. Guy with socialist ideals (which are hugely popular with the electorate) asks wealthy landlords with vacant properties to help out for a short time = Commie Corbyn encourages the proletariat to rise up and seize the property of the bourgeois elite!!! Hate him! Hate him!

 

Regardless of your political/economic views I think we can both agree that such poor journalistic standards aren't helpful in a time of tragedy and personal crisis like this.

seizing them for temporary use. lol if you think they're gonna offer to let them use the housing if they asked

As I mentioned earlier there's a number of incentives that the government could offer to persuade landlords to take part in a proposed temporary housing situation, such as full re-imbursement through the disaster relief fund to pay for bills and rent, plus damages deposits, and also rewards/recognition and the good public image and company advertising that comes with such public acts of charity and compassion.

do you know how far along they are with the negotiations? i don't follow british media much so I'm not sure what the current status is in the talks with the investors. obviously if they can hammer out a deal that'd be the preferred method but if they still won't budge for whatever reason i think temporary seizure is the way to go

As far as I'm aware negotiations of that kind have not started - it was a suggestion by Corbyn but he's not the PM, Theresa May is. And she hasn't said anything at the moment regarding temporary housing for the hundreds of affected people, so its still ongoing.

 

What I do know is that she's in deep shit. She just appointed the former Housing Minister to be her new Chief of Staff and it turns out that the residents of Grenfell were very aware of the fire safety risks and published multiple blog posts about their exchanges with the government. We've recently found out that their concerns made it to the former Housing Minister four years ago and he basically replied with "we'll look into it and get back to you when we feel like it". Given her incredibly weak position coming out of last weeks election I'm pretty sure she'll be forced to resign soon. The whole thing stinks and people are becoming wise to it.

Nobody in their right mind would let a bunch of strangers move into their house.

 

Funny how Corbyn has not offered up his residence to the displaced, but people like him and Bernie never do, they just expect other wealthy people to do it for them.

They're empty properties though - many local people HAVE let people who lost their homes stay with them until they can get support from family and friends, but this suggestion is talking about properties that are owned by well-off landlords but are currently unoccupied. What's wrong with letting people who have been literally burned out of their homes stay there until they are offered a more permanent solution?

 

This isn't about letting working class people go running amok through a mansion or country house, a lot of the properties in the area are just ordinary flats and apartments that have nobody living in them.

 

This is also a much larger problem than I think you realise - that tower block held many hundreds of people, none of which can now return as its a complete charred husk. A solution is required that is a bit bigger than Corbyn offering to let someone sleep on his sofa - we're talking many, many whole families of 3, 4, 5 people who are in need of accommodation. That means talking to the people who own enough vacant properties to help, and that means talking to the wealthy. He's pushing the government to take the large-scale action needed to assist those in need.

Rick's just trying to find something wrong with being a decent human being. Just ignore him.

Empty as in the building is completely empty, or empty as in nobody lives there because it is furnished?

being forced to allow someone to invade your property when you know very well that they will probably steal from you and cause damages is not the same as being a decent person.

 

Putting the burden of the worlds issues on a certain group of people is not right, no matter what angle you attack it from.

The only disgusting thing is when BLM goes "shopping".

Yes, the main thing to take away from a cop who shot a man in his 7 times and murdered him and ends up a free is about Black Lives Matter.

 

 

You're a fucking caricature

I tried to use my phone to reply to this and failed, so here it is a little late.

 

BLM has long been promoting the lie that blacks are killed disproportionately over other races, they have long been telling the lie that the Police unfairly target blacks as well.  Factual statistics prove both of those points to be wrong.

 

They are going to go out, attack any white people they see and burn, rob and destroy anything in their path.  It's how this always happens and will always happen because blacks often live in a violent culture.

 

75% of black kids grow up in a broken home.  Maybe if they focused more on family values and respecting their fellow man and less on being a victim when a true injustice happens people may actually care.

Not saying BLM is perfect, however in the case of Castile I don't think it's alright that a cop can pump rounds into you because you have a legal conceal carry. Especially when the cop asked for ID.

 

Also great post. Has no racial undertones at all.

The left is just largely a group of people who play victim, and victims will NEVER admit that they cause their own problems. It shouldn't come as a surprise that groups like BLM are liberal based.

 

Most college campuses are liberal based. It's easy to be a victim when you're young and grew up with the mindset that you are owed all these great things, only to find out the real world sucks and isn't what you thought it would be. We are an entitled generation, because parents don't discipline their children anymore... they'd rather give them an Xbox and let them sit in their room since it's easier then having to ACTUALLY PARENT THEM.

 

Politics are a mask too... the real problem in our society is not conflicting points of view, but rather conflicted families, which leads to poor parenting, and a poor result of a human being... and since we are all "capable" of anything, a society full of mentally unstable people... shootings every other day isn't surprising anymore. If only the awareness being made on the news wasn't driven by an agenda! I don't think the media has ever been in a worse place than it is right now.
