Has there ever been a less compassionate leader of the country.

Regardless on her inability to lead her party or the country and her constant U turns, our under pressure Prime Minister seems to have no idea how to deal with the tragic events following the Tower Block fire in Kensington.
To see her screwed up face telling the nation that "we have given each of the families £500" was just plain insulting.
THey have nowhere to live, the clothes on their backs.
Not a single mention of the pain, suffering and distress that every resident will be feeling but, "here's £500".
I know that she will soon be gone but, she is a disgrace to humanity.

This weekend she was attending a "village fete" and posed for photographs with some of her supporters.

Investigations and claims have to be made and done yet. If this was me, you or whoever and our house burnt down we would have to wait an eternity for our insurance claim to come through before we got anything. Only going off what i have seen but i believe the victims are being put up in hotels for now and the £500 is just the start with more to soon follow.

What would you expect to happen? start housing the people in the empty houses of Kensington like Corbyn suggests? how much should they get, what figure is reasonable to you?
What you looking at?....Butt Head!!

It's not about the cash, it's about her total lack of empathy for those involved.
The way she came across was like Jim Bowen giving out the "booby" prize on Bullseye.

She appears scared of meeting the victims, who should be given absolute priority here and whilst there is little doubt that the emergency services have gone through the wringer and deserve some praise for their efforts (remembering that they have their income effectively frozen for 7 years !), the only people that really matter here are the residents and their families.

Also, it's worth remembering that this was social housing, tarted up to look "acceptable" to the much wealthier neighbours but, seemingly done on the cheap, with catastrophic consequences.

you made a big point that the £500 was pure insulting, when infact if you dig a little further they are getting the £500 in cash and tomorrow a bank transfer of over 5k each. And i'm sure there will plenty more things in due course to help the victims. We are all by now aware of the circumstances leading to this tragedy, we just have to trust that the people responsible are made to pay.

I don't disagree about May, she should have addressed the victims personally. That was a mistake but she has since admitted that and invited them to downing street before the weekend.Not sure what else she can do now really on that front, it really has been a whirlwind few months on the political front, a lot she has brought on her self by calling the GE.

Agreed

I know that hindsight is a wonderful thing and there is little doubt that she wishes that she could turn the clock back and do things a little differently.
However, right from the point that she called the snap election, which she had said that she wouldn't do, everything she has done has been a mistake and she now walks into the Brexit negotiations in the weakest possible position.

Just because she showed little emotion/empathy doesn't make her the Worst PM of all time does it? Nothing like going over the top.
Her job is to run the bloody country not go around putting arms around People. Let the Major and his cohorts do that.

The request to bulldoze the block, people and all into the ground to make way for a supercar dealership was turned down. The cheap cladding was the next best option.

But fear not - in a Trump like pronouncement, the giggling idiot David Davis has said he intends to get "a deal like no other in history."

I feel much better.
