Tough Political Decision.

Basically damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
This event following the Grenfell Tower block disaster.

Politics in the UK’s capital has taken an interesting turn with a forced strongly ‘encouraged’ evacuation of FIVE London tower blocks over cladding safety fears.

That’s 800 homes, some 4000 souls, for officially up to four weeks, after a safety inspection by fire brigade.
That will probably turn out to be four to six months as nothing ever goes to plan where local government is involved.

Overkill, panic, or just being safety minded?
The political arguments will rage for a long time.
In the meantime this will enrage many of the residents and probably act as fuel for the more ‘feral’ and moronic anti government groups.

Summer in the big city is going to get REALLY interesting.

    Combustible cladding and/or other materials is one thing. What remains to be determined is whether an accelerant or other means of arson was involved in the conflagration.

    • This morning it was revealed that the fire services had identified the fault as a defective fridge freezer.

      It is known in the UK that certain makes and models of white goods have a history of catching fire.

      Once that fire reached the cladding, it has already been explained by ex-spurts that the cladding acted as a flammable ‘conduit’ for the flame.

      When you hear hooves, think horses not zebra. The fault was electrical, the conduit for that fire cheap shoddy materials.

  2. Two sides of the coin: criticism and confusion is bound to occur. That can of worms has just got bigger.
