The latest quote from Sajid Javid is: “It's a time of national shortage and in this kind of time British people will not look kindly on anyone who hoards land and speculates on its value, rather than freeing it up for the homes our children and grandchildren need. They don't want the world handed to them on a plate. They want simple fairness, moral justice, the opportunity to play by the same rules enjoyed by those who came before them. Without affordable, secure, safe housing we risk creating a rootless generation, drifting from one short-term tenancy to the next, never staying long enough to play a role in their community.”. It comes from the Sajid Javid calls for 'giant leap' in new homes being built in challenge to Philip Hammond article.

I think all governments, including previous Conservative governments, have not taken this issue seriously enough in the past. We have been listening too much to those people that are against development under any circumstance.

In one of the richest, most privileged corners of the UK – the world, even – would a fire like this have happened in a privately owned block of luxury flats?
