More Tower Block Cladding Fires

Filed under: Gaza, Jeremy Corbyn, Yasmin Qureshi — derryvickers @ 11:06 am

I note that the fire in the students’ Cube at Bolton East looks like a replica of the Grenfell Tower though thank heavens no one seems to have been killed there.

I note that the Labour MP is Yasmin Qureshi but is not reported to be yet on the scene; if so this a grave omission.

But I note that Yasmin fell foul of the media by seeming to compare what is happening in Gaza with the Holocaust some 5 years ago.

She has since apologised.

But I personally feel that the comparison has some truth even though subsequently removed, as the wars of attrition continue unabated between Israel and Gaza.  I note that only yesterday an Israeli plane killed a whole family in Gaza “by mistake”.
