    Because as nasty as it sounds the officials and people with the real power have more important things to do than hugs and handshakes - if they take time out from their work then this enormous mess takes longer to be sorted. Besides, when May went down there she was basically chased out of the area, so it doesn't seem like the residents really want government officials to be there other than as someone to vent their anger at

    I have said this before, but this is one of the reasons Adele is one of my favourite celebrities even if I am not a massive fan of her music. Like Lily Allen she attended a vigil for this, but didn't tell anyone, didn't mouth off on television and didn't tweet about it.

    Class - you either have it or you don't.

    The attempt to get the PM to be jeered at and/or cry to the cameras is just another part of the Dianafication of our society.

    There's now a good proportion of people in this country who seem to feed off grief.

    this is 100% wrong right? 100's are dead yet people are being misinformed of this by the media by saying that they are missing. there are loads and loads of volunteers and people donating clothes and food to all these missing people but none of it is being used because all these missing people are dead lol. arent they just minimising the situation?

    It's procedure, not a cover up.

    It's like if the blood of a missing person is found in the boot of a car, we don't declare the person dead even if it's extremely likely because there's the possibility they're alive. Until the bodies can be identified that is - very hard to do in a fire that raged over 24 hours. Obviously relatives will pretty much de facto know already and will adjust accordingly.

When did the use of common sense become so less common????
    mate its common sense to realise that most of the missing people that cannot be found have been cremated in the fire. im sorry but i dont think these people who are missing have gone very far

    yep thats true but still doesnt defer from the fact that the situation has been downplayed like people in here have stated before. funny how people can automatically call a brown man running down people in the street a terror attack within 20 mins of it happening but the media are struggling to report that hundreds have possibly died in the fire which was near enough inescapable.

    Just read about a family being found safe after being reported missing after the fire. Good job they didn't add them to the list of those presumed dead before even knowing right? 👍

    New apartments being handed over to the families who lost their homes now, lots of anger about how long it's taken but frankly I think a week is pretty good going for finishing off an entire complex that wasn't fully done at the time and having all the checks and admin sorted, and better than robbing people like a certain electoral runner-up wanted

    Investigations ongoing into how widespread a problem this cladding is and hopefully no more accidents from it all
