James O'Brien: Why I'll Never Stop Fighting For The Truth On Grenfell Fire

21 July 2017, 11:18

James O'Brien received a text saying he should stop talking about the Grenfell Tower fire. This is his passionate response.

A couple of people wrote to him telling him it's time to move on, while Alf said he feels he's being "hit over the head" with it.

But James made no apologies as he said he was going to keep talking about it until justice is served for the people who died in the tower.

Speaking on his LBC show, he said: "I want you to know something.

"I want you to know that if your house burns down and your children die grisly deaths in the middle of the night after you have repeatedly warned the authorities, the relevant authorities that it's going to happen, I want you to know that this radio programme will speak for you and about you for as long as is necessary.

"I don't care where you come from, where you live, what social class you live in or what ethnicity you hail from, if your children burn to death in a trap that was described and warned by various of your neighbours, I will speak to you, I will speak about you and I will speak for you on this programme until I get handed my sandwiches in a road map."
