Camden: Households refusing to leave unsafe towerblocks are being ‘Selfish’

Of course, it is annoying and inconvenient to be kicked out of your home so late, and not wondering where you will stay. It is an emergency situation, this is what happens. It is not ideal.

Should there be a fire, they will put firefighters at risk too, not to mention any visitors who would be up there with them. They are delaying any safety works being done to the properties. If it happened to me, yes, it would be inconvenient but it would be an ‘adventure’ and it would be interesting meeting other members of the block, particularly as many would not even know each other. Whatever happened to the ‘Blitz Spirit?’

One news article said that as much as 83 people are refusing to leave the tower blocks. They are being childish and inconsiderate. It is all ‘me, me’. Of course, the Council should have made the property safe in the first place, but that is another issue. The Council can force them to leave so there is no point whatsoever playing ‘stick in the mud’. They remind me of those people who get flooded and refuse to leave, despite the emergency services asking them to.
