…telling this, isn’t it?

The incoming leader of the council responsible for Grenfell Tower has admitted she has never been inside a flat in any of the borough’s high-rise buildings.

Campbell represents the affluent Sloane Square area and served on the council’s cabinet at the time of the fire. While she accepted collective responsibility, she insisted she was the right person to lead the authority, touting her experience of running its family and children’s services, which included working with many residents of North Kensington, the area that incorporates Grenfell Tower.

But she admitted that her work had never led her to visit flats in any of the area’s high-rise buildings. She said she understood why people might feel that she could not understand their lives, but said her work contradicted that.

And:

Later, speaking to Sky News, she said she had visited high-rise blocks while out canvassing, but had never been inside any of the flats. “Whether I have been on the 21st floor of a particular tower block, I don’t think it is particularly relevant,” she said.

How did she end up as head of family and children’s services without ever visiting a flat?

Look at teh unqualified person running a fostering service. Not being qualified never stopped anyone here.
