RAPPER attacks cabinet minister for saying fire victims should have used ‘common sense’

Stormzy has called Jacob Rees-Mogg “an actual piece of s***” and called for his resignation after the politician implied Grenfell victims lacked “common sense” during the blaze which killed 72 people

The leader of the House of Commons issued “a profound apology” after he told a radio interviewer: “I think if either of us were in a fire, whatever the fire brigade said, we would leave the burning building. It just seems the common sense thing to do.”

The rapper Stormzy joined relatives, including the nephew of a Grenfell Tower victim who died after being told to stay put by the London fire, in slamming the cabinet minister.

Stormzy, who has been a long-term supporter of the Grenfell survivors called on Rees-Mogg to resign, tweeting:

“Oi @Jacob_Rees_Mogg you need to resign you’re an actual piece of sh** I beg everyone watch this – MP Jacob Rees Mogg in a nutshell saying Grenfell Victims should of had the common sense to escape. I can’t believe the cheek f***ing hell these politicians are actual aliens

“Bare [so many] of you politicians are evil and wicked and this is why we hate you… 72 people died in a tragedy that you are to blame for … This ain’t about politics, it’s about the people who govern us lacking the most basic humanity or empathy. It’s nuts to me.”

Karim Mussilhy, whose uncle Hesham Rehman, 57, died in the fire, said Rees-Mogg was an “idiot” whose remarks revealed the detachment of the government from the Grenfell community.

The fire, on 14 June 2017 in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, resulting in 72 death, was the biggest single loss of life in London since the second world war.

The victims of Grenfell included six members of the same family, the Choucairs, and five members of the Hashim family, who all lived on the 22nd floor. At least 18 children were killed in the disaster. Among them were a six-month-old baby, Leena Belkadi,and Logan Gomes, who was stillborn in hospital on the day.
