Grenfell Tower

Hi BNC members. Do you think Grenfell tower links into social housing? Leave two opinions (it is or it isn’t) in the comments and write why you don’t think the other one.

In my opinion, I think Grenfell tower is a part of social housing as it was a travasity of the consequences of the council.




  1. Hi Sparnosaur12,

    I agree with you. I think it is linked to our issue. I think it is linked because we can ask questions around why it’s hard to find new places to live for those who lost their homes in the fire. What does this tell us about social housing?

    Can anyone research and find some answers?

      Hi Tiffany,
      I think I have an answer, although I am an Arnhem wharf student, that the people of the world are protesting the government to make more social housing, but the government will have to keep them waiting, and I will also Protest! my biggest wish is everyone to achieve their rights, earned by themselves or others

      • Hi Newsjunior,

        Thanks for responding. My questions are always for ALL BNC members!

        I’m interested to know why the government have found it difficult to find new homes for all of the people affected by the fire? What are the barriers and difficulties in the way?

          Hi Tiffany,
          I think that the government are finding it hard to find houses for people because other people may not let the government build houses on grass because it will destroy nature. Some people may also not want houses built around them because the owners might want some space.

            Hi mmmusic

            What would you argue is more important – open spaces and protecting nature or housing the homeless?

      It is because it was social housing

  2. The tragedy of Grenfell Tower revealed to the public how little attention is paid to social housing in our society. The terrible thing is that it was someone’s conscious decision to choose the wrong cladding, which led to dozens of deaths. The worst thing is that this is not the only tower that was built with the ‘cheaper cladding’ . This was a case of governmental neglect, not an accident! By NellieBly:the2nd

  3. the Grenfell tower is a social housing and very highly flammable and thats why it it all started

    I think that it is not fair for people to just live in the streets, because we all are humans, and we have the right to have shelter, and now, the government are not doing anything to support that right to the people of Grenfell tower!

  5. To bring a bit of argument, what do you think is more important, Housing or Education?

    it is unfair that some people don`t get social housing and people have no other choice but to live on the street.

    I think everyone has the right to have shelter and clothes.It is unfair how many people have to suffer in the cold.

    Hi i am Newsjunior870 twin!!,
    I would like to give a comment about the Grenfell tower it is not fair for people that have their houses burnt because it is a waste of money whoever paid for the houses that are now burnt.

    I think that the grenfell tower is linked to social housing because manny lives were vunerable and had to wait for social housing all over again .Manny people are waiting for social housing but are home less and have no close relatives or friends therefore they are homeless. Grapes 123
