Grenfell Tower’s local MP has given a spine-tingling first House of Commons speech exposing the shame of poverty in Britain.

Emma Dent Coad told how she’d seen toxic black mould and five children squeezed into one room in one of the richest boroughs in the country.

She became Labour’s first MP in Kensington just two weeks ago after ousting the Tories by 20 votes.

But she was thrust into the spotlight by the deaths of 79 people in the London block – symbolising the inequality in her seat.

“The horror and fear of this man-made catastrophe will be etched on all our hears forever,” she said.

“The burnt carcass of Grenfell Tower speaks for itself and has revealed the true face of Kensington.

“The mask has dropped. We have poverty, malnutrition, overcrowding, poor maintenance – and underlining this, a lack of care.”

  1. Impressive first speech from this MP. It highlights the divide between rich and poor, in the richest borough in the country, and the absolute snobbery and contempt by the wealthy towards the poor.

    Truly, a tale of two cities.
