Of course it won't! But it will certainly help those families. We have absolutely no clue what difficulties those families face ON TOP of losing a loved one. What alternative would you suggest?

In my opinion money is not the solution

I understand what you're saying. I guess it could help with funeral costs and the loss of income. Imagine if one of the victims was the sole breadwinner in their family

It's a tough one really, I thought it was a bit strange when I heard the news, what is the money supposed to be for? I wonder what it would feel like to receive it, it's quite a large almost life changing amount of money. I wouldn't know what to do with it.

The money won't replace the loved one, but it will make life easier for those left behind. Think about the two girls who lost their mum and dad as they waited to pick them up, they will at be set up for life now and it's the least they deserve.

I'm sure many of the families recieve or recieved therapy and grief counseling. I don't know if UK government pays for that, if not, the money might come handy.
