Get The Media Out Of London?

After Grenfell Tower, it would be no bad thing to get the media into London.

Into the London, and even into the West End, that most of its people inhabit.

Just as the American pioneers somehow could not see the Native Americans, and just as the Zionist pioneers somehow could not see the Palestinians, so the London media somehow could not see a social housing tower block in Kensington, at least once it had been clad in such a way as to avoid distress to the immensely wealthy neighbours.

But then, those media routinely cannot see enormous demonstrations that are going right past their offices, either.

They do not even live in London. They live in a city of their own imagination; a place of childish delusion, into which nothing must ever intrude.
