Grenfell video is just so sad
My overwhelming emotion when I watched that video of partygoers topping their bonfire with a model of Grenfell Tower wasn’t shock, or even disgust.
It was sadness – for people so bereft of basic humanity it didn’t occur to them what they were doing was vile.
What kind of lives have they had to make them so devoid of compassion that they created their sickening effigy to race hate while thinking: “This is a laugh, isn’t it?”
What could have been going through their heads when they got out the brown felt-tips and created figures representing actual human beings who died in the most terrifying way imaginable?
They’re clearly not the sharpest crayons in the pencil case, otherwise they would never have put their depraved little video online.
Cleverer people than me will now have to work out if those arrested should be charged with a hate crime.
But even if they’re not, the world now knows them for what they are. And that’s some sort of justice, I guess.
