Early morning on Wednesday, a fire broke out in a 27-storey tower in the White City district, London. Most of the residents were trapped inside their homes in the Ltimer Road’s Grenfell Tower at the Lancaster West Estate tower block. The smoke could easily be seen from most spots in the city.
Around 40 fire engines with 200 firefighters were involved in putting off the fire. The fire, that started in the 2nd floor, eventually spread to the top floor. There were a few injured that were treated as needed. London Ambulance service sent a number of vehicles to the scene.
Residents on the higher floors were reportedly flashing torch-lights to be rescued. The cause of the fire has not been ascertained yet. There is also fear among the people in the area that considering the seriousness of the fire, the tower might collapse.

Please pray for speedy recovery for the injured.
I don’t understand though. Weren’t there any sprinkler system/extinguishers in the building itself to help a little with the fire. The fire spread from 2nd floor to the top floor, that takes time.

London Mayor, Mr. Sadiq Khan, is one of the most prominent Muslim politicians in Europe, and since the group of terrorists killed seven people on London bridge Saturday night, Trump has kept at his hobby of tweeting about the Mayor and the incident.
According to Trump’s tweet, he mentioned At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terrorist and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’ While on a completely different note, the London Mayor had asked the residents to ‘not be alarmed by an increased police presence in the coming days.’
Such tweets by President Trump comes when London is still struggling to get back on it’s feet after the violent, and horrific terrorist attack on Saturday. Mr. Sadiq Khan also tried to explain that the belief of a few Muslim individuals who plot such devious attacks, is not the same as that of the 1.6 billion Muslims residing in the world or the teachings of Islam.

Mr. Trump acts like a middle school bully, who thrives on speaking about others when he doesn’t get his way (The travel ban that is). Or someone might compare him to an old housewife, who due to a lack of entertainment in his life has taken upon himself to criticize every little information on a certain topic.

During the campaign for French elections, candidate Emmanuel Macron visited British Prime Minister Theresa May at her Downing Street office and also met Finance minister Philip Hammond later. He told reporters that, “Brexit cannot lead to a kind of optimisation of Britain’s relationship with the rest of Europe. An exit is an exit.”
Macron, aged 39, is running independently. He is a former economy minister in Socialist President Francois Hollande’s government. He was not able to obtain a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel during recent visit to Berlin, and is now keen to improve his standing on the world stage and court voters in London, which has an estimated 200,000 french residents.
He mentioned that he was tired of hearing about French entrepreneurs leaving France and moving to London because of the better growth opportunities and the ease of starting a business. He said his ambition as president was to make France more attractive so such people would stay, or return.
