Grenfell Tower: British MP Claims Fire was an Inside Job
Politician accuses government of a cover-up
A British politician has accused the UK Government of covering up evidence from the Grenfell Tower fire that would prove the blaze was an inside job.
Labour MP David Lammy has revealed that contractors working on the site are "deliberately destroying" evidence from the scene of the crime.
The UK Government has already been exposed for colluding with the mainstream media in an attempt to hide the number of deaths from the public by claiming that the death toll has reached 58 when independent reports have placed the number between 500-600 as a direct result of the fire.
Press TV reports: Speaking to SkyNews on Sunday, Labour MP David Lammy said some contractors working on the Grenfell Tower were removing evidence of their work after the last week inferno that killed dozens of people in the 24-story building.
"Within the community, trust in the authorities is falling through the floor and a suspicion of a cover-up is rising,” said Lammy, who lost a close friend in the fire.
“The Prime Minister needs to act immediately to ensure that all evidence is protected so that everyone culpable for what happened at Grenfell Tower is held to account and feels the full force of the law,” he added.
The MP called on the government to find and preserve all emails, meeting documents, correspondence with contractors, safety assessments, specifications and reports in order to withhold justice for the victims.
The Wednesday blaze has so far killed 58 people while many other residents still remain unaccounted for.
"At this stage, it is my grave concern that the families of Grenfell Tower will not get justice if documents are being quietly destroyed and shredded and emails are being deleted," Lammy (pictured below) further warned.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has already called on the government to conduct an investigation into reports that Gavin Barwell, the former housing minister who was recently appointed as the Prime Minister’s adviser, had failed to OK a fire safety review request he had received.
Later on Sunday, former UK Chancellor Philip Hammond said the cladding material used on the building was banned on British high-rises.
May under fire for U-turn
Meanwhile, embattled May found herself in more trouble on Sunday, after her administration walked back a promise to house the survivors of the fire in the same neighborhood.
A day after the deadly incident, Housing Minister Alok Sharma told MPs the government “will guarantee that every single family from Grenfell Tower will be re-housed in the local area.”
However, May retracted the pledge on Saturday night, saying that the residents would be found homes in the same borough or neighboring ones.
