Everyone’s talking about… Lily Allen

The singer appeared on Channel 4 News last night to discuss the Grenfell Tower tragedy in a highly emotive interview.

She accused the government of trying to “micromanage grief” and alleged that the authorities and the media were suppressing the true scale of the tragedy.

“I have never in my entire life seen an event like this where the death count has been downplayed by the mainstream media,” she said.

Seventeen? I’m sorry but I’m hearing from people that the figure is much closer to 150, and that many of those people are children. Those are off the record numbers I’ve been given from policemen and from firemen.

The singer was subsequently pulled from a scheduled appearance on BBC’s Newsnight.
