EPIC FAIL: Humiliating Turn Out For Day Of Rage Protest
Yesterday, the anti-government organisations decided to use the Grenfell Tower fire as an excuse to march in the streets of London with the promise to ‘overthrow the government’. The march was dubbed ‘The Day of Rage’ march, which sounds like a shitty high school band. This was just another anti-austerity march, which we’ve seen before back in 2015 when the Tory government won the general election. The difference is, we saw a much better turn out back in 2015. The turn out for this one? Well, see for yourself.

The peak number of protestors that showed up has been quoted at around 200 people. How embarrassing.
This epic fail of a protest may be due to the Grenfell Tower victims themselves feeling these organisations co-opted this tragedy to further their agenda. Ouch. One Grenfell volunteer said
“I’m very upset because I think it’s politicising the anger. Now is not the time.”
These protestors also seem to be ignoring the lavish housing the Grenfell victims have been put in since the fire. They will be rehoused permanently in a £2bn luxury apartment block in Kensington.
Yep, people who lived in the Grenfell Tower, which was a council estate (social housing), will now get to live in an apartment block that has a 24-hour concierge and a private cinema. Private homes in the apartment complex cost ‘from £1,575,000 to £8.5m’, there is no way the Grenfell residents can afford the normal rate of rent for these apartments. So, I guess the taxpayer has to suffer again due to a government fuck up. Maybe I should try to get a house from the council instead of paying £1000 for a one bedroom flat…
