Huge bonuses an affront when so many families still have no permanent home – and council response adds insult to injury
News has emerged that Tory-controlled Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) bosses – whose borough includes Grenfell Tower – received bonuses of over £90,000 in the year following the terrible 2017 charity.
Even now, seventy families remain without a permanent home. The bonuses work out at almost £8,000 per senior officer.
The council’s response?
No-one got a bonus specifically for helping respond to the fire.
Other staff involved in housing also received bonuses totalling over £130,000.
Survivors’ and supporters’ complaints that Tory councillors and senior staff are out of touch ring truer than ever.
