KENSINGTON, U.K. - Aug. 15, 2017 - PRLog -- World renowned adviser to monarchs, governments, presidents and corporate leaders, Professor Chris Imafidon has described the delibrate removal of the key question of social housing from the final terms of reference of the London's Grenfell Tower tragedy Inquiry as an outrage, insult and a total betrayal of victims and survivors.

The head of the inquiry should resign if he is unable to persuade the government otherwise because, no serious minded individuals or institutions will ever participate in such a narrow and meaningless exercise which excluded the broader social issues. Why is the government setting up another "independent" reviews into building regulations and fire safety, if the public inquiry understood its job?  Can anyone explain why this probe is sidesteping the wider issues around social housing which many residents believe is the core problem at the heart of the fire?  Why is the government further insulting a grieving community? queries Prof Chris Imafidon, who submitted ten questions to the inquiry during the consultation stage.

Based on the questions submitted to the Prime Minister, by the controversial head of the inquiry,  Sir Martin Moore-Bicks, this is the weakest and most feble attempt at a very serious issue in modern day Britain. Social inequity is the single biggest challenge of our generation.This is a real insult . What a shallow and superficial attempt to investigate something very fundamental. Why is SIr Moore-Bicks avoiding the root cause of this tragedy? ask Prof Imafidon, who had earlier submitted a comprehensive list of questions to the inquiry and decline to serve in its membership if key conditions were not met by the government. The Prime Minister must do the right action by dismissing the current inquiry head and replace with a new head who will truely leave no stone unturned until the real truth of this avoidable national tragedy is established. This must be comprehensive, sincere and a genuine attempt to get to the root of the matter, it cannot be a mere formality.

These comments were in response to the publication of the official terms of reference of the inquiry into London's worst ever domestic fire disaster which claimed over 150 lives according to local residents of the west London neighbourhood called north Kensington. It will be recalled that Professor Chris Imafidon, known as the patriarch of Britain's brainiest family, earlier warned the government about the leadership and possible scope of the inquiry and withdrew his membership of any public investigation into the fire which he personally witnessed. Professor Imafidon however thanked the inquiry for addressing two issues which he raised in his communications with the team. They included 1) Diversity and 2) Non-documented immigrants who witnessed the fire.

Prof Imafidon who has a long history with Kensington, currently serves as chair, of the Excellence in Education programs works with local charities, churches, parents and pupils in London's inner-city including Kensington and Chelsea
