A FURIOUS caller has said he plans to switch from the Conservative Party to Labour after the Grenfell Tower disaster.
The upset voter also called for the minister responsible to be sacked following the Grenfell Tower blaze.
Speaking on Nigel Farage’s LBC show, the caller announced that he may switch his vote from Tory to Labour because of the tragedy.
He said: “So what do we do, do we actually launch a full-scale inquiry? That’s going to take ten years and cause people complete pain and heartache over that period of time at the cost of £30million.
“Or do we sack the minister who is currently responsible, sat on his hands, who sat on this report, done absolutely nothing.
“And take the risk that he may sue for a smaller amount than that.
“Do you know what I would do to appease the people, and I am not by any stretch of the imagination sort of a Labour voter, I am a traditional Tory voter.
“I am thinking of seriously switching my vote. This is unbelievable.”
Prime Minister Theresa May visited the scene on Thursday morning after promising a “proper investigation” amid growing concerns about how the fire could have spread so rapidly.
After leaving she announced a public inquiry will take place into what happened.
The caller insisted that the minister responsible for delaying a tower block fire safety review, during his time as housing minister should be held to account.
Gavin Barwell, the former housing minister, who was recently appointed as Mrs May’s chief of staff after losing his seat in the recent General Election, faced questions following the Grenfell Tower blaze.
The caller insisted the minister should “fall on his sword” after no decision had been made on the report for years.
He said: “Do not dust this into the long grass. There are parents who have thrown their children out of a tower block while they have burnt.
“These people should be falling on their sword Nigel, right. This is what you do in public office.
“If you get things badly wrong where lives are lost, you fall on your sword you don’t clutch at every opportunity of power.
“This guy lost his job in Croydon. He has gone into a position of Government.
“Fall on your sword, remove yourself, appease some of the people, that’s the start and then we can look at the issues following that.
“Otherwise there are going to be serious serious problems in this country and I will join any group who wants to go out and protest against this, even being a non-traditional voter in this way because this is just unbelievable.”
