'Tory councillor' beaten by Grenfell Tower protesters revealed to be volunteer who helped the victims

Post by Thorin on Tue Jun 20, 2017 2:47 pm

A man who was mistaken for a Tory councillor and beaten up by activists who stormed Kensington Town Hall in the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy has been left injured and badly shaken by the incident. Robert Outram, 56, had spent much of last week volunteering at the makeshift shelters set up to help victims of the deadly blaze.

But the father of two, a financial consultant whose firm is employed by Kensington and Chelsea Council, was at the council offices when despair turned into angry protests on Friday. Dressed in a suit, he was apparently deemed a legitimate a target by protesters who set upon him, pushing him to the ground and pouring water on him.

This is what happens when people start acting like a bloody mob. They all need to calm down and stop trying to find someone, anyone, to pin the blame on. The perpetrators will come to light.

If he had been a councillor, it would have been as bad anyway. I hope they get prosecuted for GBH.
