                  I rhappened to be on the interent when it happened... I cried... it reminded ne of 9/11. I am Amercan. This was an accident and it should have not happened. We in America had someone to blame but you had poor building materials., Both terrible things that can't be described with words. I felt I was living the nightmare..  me of 9;.11

                    The UK Conservative Government failed to act after advice given to the housing minister Eric Pickles 7 years ago. People forget. People are dead.

                      the shit these celebrities come out with is hilarious, you do realize that he is just saying this so you idiots would say things like "amazing speech mr corden, huge respect!" if all the celebrities who have talked about Grenfell just 10% of their salary I guarantee every person/family effected by the blaze who hasnt got a home would be living in permanent accommodation by now.

                        Either do the serious stuff or mock Boris Johnson’s hair, but don’t try to do both. When James Corden has finished lecturing Britain, he should realise that BJ is right about fire incidents being down. There are just fewer fires decade on decade (a lot due to the lack of chip pans igniting). Closing a fire station is not like closing an A&E

                          Don’t use this to rubbish Boris. I’m not saying Boris is going to be a great prime minister, but how can he be any worse than David Cameron, Theresa May or Jeremy Corbyn?

                          Oh, and we voted Leave!!!!

                          Don’t you love in America now James??
                          How much is your house worth??
                          How much are the houses in your area worth??
                          What are you personally doing to help Grenfell victims??

                            The fire service are and always have been there for what might happen, not only for what does. He has no clue about fire safety and was only ever interested in the amount of money he would save by closing all of those stations. Recruitment was frozen for years and now they can't keep up with the amount of people retiring and moving on to different jobs, this means there are a lot of trucks not in use because there is no one to go on them. He caused all of these problems and is unfortunately likely to become our next PM. Only in these important roles does their failure get rewarded with another more important job.

                                This is the problem with this country some people in power and royalist think it's fine to give the royals money to do up their houses but two yrs after this tragedy the government is still pissing about sorting these poor folks a home out and sorting the buildings that have this cladding what our governments seem to not understand is when these things happen it cost a heck of a lot it's the cost related to either demolishing these buildings and the cost of putting the poor folk in private rented accommodation just get the work done and then we won't lose another person to something that should never of happened!!

                                    Does not point out that all the people in Glenfell were mostly illegals who shouldn't of even been in the uk.
                                    Hate speech against MPs,totally bias and poor jokes about Glenfell...you James Corden are a twat

                                            Pretty much just waiting for this to happen in Australia. We already have apartment buildings being evacuated due to to terrible cheap Chinese products used and to some extent bad workmanship too, probably because of rushing so many of them out. We even had things like drinking fountains in our new Elizabeth Quay development full of some kind of poison metal, I forget what, due to cheap Chinese pipes used.

                                                        Get real people this would happen in America or any other country Communist or Capitalist where there is an elite establishment. The elite take care of their own so what on this earth did you expect this prick is just stating the bloody obvious and making money out of it. You want change then have a revolution ,mind you all you will get is another type of elite taking care of their interests, dont believe it then look at America or Britain or any other country that have had a revolution France has an ex banker in control. The only justice comes during the revolution when the elitists suffer for a short time but the new rulers just take on the corrupt behaviour of the people they evict. American revolutionaries had their own slaves and black people were not allowed on the same bus or in the same restarurant until the late 60s.Stop dreaming people .

                                                                                                James - I know this is one of those awful “back handed compliments” that don’t really mean that much in the way of things. But here goes:

                                                                                                In comparison to other late night hosts - I never really rated you. And before the America move - it was the same.

                                                                                                But having seen this and the way you’ve used a massive platform to say something that could possibly go against you, (even though I’m happy it hasn’t), is extremely brave. And is rewarding to those families who still haven’t been commended by the government - by their own country.
                                                                                                And I just wanted to say thank you for being brave and making a change, and for being a first.
                                                                                                Does John Oliver do this all the time? Yes - but he’s known for doing so and that’s where he’s built his foundation, so that even controversy couldn’t bring him down.
                                                                                                This is such a risky move for James, but it’s about time someone proved that sometimes. It just needs to be said, no matter the consequences.
