Sajid Javid has granted an amnesty from prosecution for tenants that illegally subletted their council property in Grenfell Towers.
This despite the limited and long overdue legislation introduced by the Tory government only a few years ago.
He has probably given the green light and amnesty to anybody who was responsible for innocent adults and children being burned to death because of overcrowding due to the sheer greed of the sub-letters of any social housing.
What the hell is wrong with this Government?
He has suggested that by doing so, people will now come forward and name the poor souls they are responsible for killing in the name of profit.
I am personally beside myself with rage over this, as I have to obey the overcrowding rules on HMO’s, but the subletters are to be allowed to get away with it.
Any person now being prosecuted for this criminal act, will now only have to mention that they have seen to be treated equally in the eyes of the law, as others have, to get away with it.
The accountability for this tragedy is being eroded before the enquiry into it has even begun and is a betrayal of the law abiding residents and people killed at Grenfell Towers.
