AFTER THE HORRIFIC DISASTER AT GRENFELL TOWER, ALL TOWER BLOCKS MUST ‪BE DEMOLISHED!!‬

I emplore you, in my 36 years of life I have watched as these awful, unsafe buildings slowly been torn down, for the better. However, in the last few years developers have started building them again. Developers in Hounslow(to name just one), want to build a new 27 storey block. And that's 27floors up, not including the shops at ground level. So more like 30 floors,
Why are we going backwards in time? They're unsafe, difficult to escape from and studies have shown over and over that tower blocks are not good for the people that live there.
AND WHY BUILD RESIDENTIAL PREMISES SO HIGH THAT FIRE ENGINE LADDERS CANT REACH!!

ALSO, ANY and ALL of these tower blocks must be replaced with SOCIAL HOUSING! GUARANTEED!!

AS I GUARANTEE, 90%+ of all tower block residents are;

A - All renting, probably, more like 95% renting.

&

B - Have Council/Housing Association landlords and/or receiving benefits &, Private Landlords and/or receiving benefits. 

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, sign this petition. Let's prevent another Grenfell tower tragedy

I call on TERESA MAY, JEREMY CORBYN AND ALL MPS, LETS TEAR THEM DOWN AND PROTECT  PEOPLE IN THE FUTURE. 

P.s 

Before the idea(from politicians etc) that there's nowhere to put these residents, there's no space blah blah.

 There is plenty of space if, when they building new places(of which there are many developments all over London), They actually made them affordable(affordable is not affordable for the low income or for renters) and social housing. Not just for the richer in society.
Case in point, there are 98 residences going up on a small area on my estate. They're only 5storeys tall. BUT Only 8, EIGHT, of these 98 are for social rent. The rest are affordable, to buy. Which most around here cannot dream of. And this is only 1 development out of 4 going up in about a 2mile radius. All these houses etc ARE being built, just not accessible for the majority.

Tower blocks are not needed, and have always been risky. No matter how much fire prevention is followed, if the perfect storm presents, how is anyone supposed to escape down one set of stairs? Which most only have. Especially the elderly and those of poor mobility.
Tower blocks are dangerous AND the fire trucks ladder units only don't even go high enough. There should be a limit on height

But again, there's plenty of space for lower rises. If the space wasn't being taken by unaffordable properties
