'Crooked Streets'.. poor must die

"This world’s a citty full of crooked streets,

Death is the market place where all men meets,

If life were merchandise as men could buy,

The Rich would always live,

The Poor must die."

 

In the notebook of JOHN SPENCER (Chadwell relative)

Iver Parish Clerk, 1729-1779

Seems, little has changed since the 18th century (the first Chadwell arrived in Iver in 1720) and what happened at Grenfell Tower, London, surely tells us that the UK is not the fair place we believe it to be!
