THERESA MAY insisted today that she was committed to supporting those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire after grime star Stormzy launched a blistering attack on her during the Brit Awards.
The artist, who won two awards at Wednesday night’s ceremony, rapped: “Yo Theresa May, where’s the money for Grenfell?
“What, you thought we just forgot about Grenfell?
“You criminals and you’ve got the cheek to call us savages, you should do some jail time, you should pay some damages, you should burn your house down and see if you can manage this.”
He ended with: “Someone tell the Daily Mail they can suck my…”
It was the second time that the PM has publicly come under fire from the south London MC, whose real name is Michael Omari.
Last September, he called her a paigon – slang for snake – as he accepted a British GQ award presented to him by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Mr Corbyn tweeted Stormzy his congratulations for his politically charged rap and for winning the awards.
A spokesman for Ms May said she was “determined” the public inquiry would uncover failings that led to the fire in west London last June which killed 71 people. He said the PM also wanted to know “why the voices of the people of Grenfell had been ignored over so many years.”
He added that the government had so far pledged £58.9 million on rehousing, community projects and mental health support for survivors and hundreds of households living on the Lancaster West estate – which the tower was part of.
It is understood that she did not watch the awards ceremony.
