Sadly the Coroner will be no wiser. It will never be known the number of illegal tenants there were. Notwithstanding their Tenancy Agreements many of the flats in the building were flats of multiple occupation. The absolute number of dead will be lost on us forever.Until a Coroner's beak gets into this, there's lots of assuming, guessing and accusing but very little knowing. The chances are, there isn't just one major weakness that caused the catastrophe. More likely there were several minor ones that all coincided; the Swiss cheese principle where all the holes line up at the same time. Only when the investigation can be completed will all the contributory factors be known. One thing this has revealed is how rich this Country is in fire safety experts.
it's not great. it's absolute bollocks. Already shot down in another thread, here's a reminder:great post above, the worst thing is Corbyn turns up there to score points straight after such a tragedy, preying upon the people of the affected area stricken with grief, poisoning their minds!
It is run by KCTMO on behalf of the council, a subcontract in a way. The council maintains accountability and still manages the budget, completely.Here you go Slim, another one to enjoy
Before you join the Theresa May lynch mob here are some FACTS relating to the Grenfell tragedy..
1. The block of flats was run not by the Council but by KCTMO. This body is made up of 8 TENANTS, 4 councilors and 3 independent members.
The council is 40 Tory, 7 Labour. The Grenfell tower seat being Labour means nothing in that context.2 Labour hold the seat that the block is situated in.
Under funded being key, to quote Amber Rudd, there is no magic money tree for Sadiq Khan to shake, he deals with what the government give him. The austerity cuts to the London fire service were made by his predeccessor, Boris Johnson. Khan has been outspoken about no more cuts and increasing funding since he became Mayor.3 Labour run the London Council who manage the under funded London Fire Service
She was not on the board when the renovation was carried out, when the contractor was changed or the safety lapses came to light and were being reported and ignored.4 Emma Coad the sitting Labour MP for that ward also sat on the KCTMO.
Which is SOP.5 The advice to stay put which Sadiq Khan has been so vocal about was given by the London Fire Service.
Due to the orginal contractor exceeding the proposed budget. Again, hamstrung by funding by a Conservative council who signed off on all the work.6 The decision to change contractors during the refurb was made by KCTMO.
See above. Plus it's the Tory governemnt who ignored the report that called for Tower Block sprinkler installation for tower blocks after the Camberwell fire.7 The decision not to spend an additional £138k on fitting sprinklers was again KCTMO.
Which is pretty well backed by all parties.8 The decision to create ALMO organisation such as the KCTMO was made under the Right To Manage legislation passed in 2002
as part of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act.
True, but it's 50/50. Equally in some cases it works well and protects buildings and tenants.9 This was put in place to give leaseholders and tenants a greater say and the ability to self manage, which in some circumstances has clearly proven to be flawed.
See 8, well backed by all parties.10 Which Govt was in a charge when this law was passed? It was Labour.
False, he didn't. He said when he was housing minister that Fire spending was increasing. Way, way before more recent austerity cuts.11 Sadiq Khan as mayor of London Produced a report to say that the fire service did not need further funding.
See 4.12 Emma Coad elected Labour MP was on the board of the Tenant Management group who are being accused of not listening to tenants.
The above is another case of misrepresentation of information by omitting key facts. Myth - busted.It's a modern lynch mob encouraged by bitter Labour MPs who having lost a close election want to destroy an elected government for a chance of a second election.
The original post's 'opinion' is lies and misdirection. You're basically advocating bullshit, which is a huge issue wherever you sit on the political spectrum.or interpretation of events and information depending on what political party you support. Each to their own, a person can hold their own oppinion and believe in it, thats what democracy is remember, something quickly forgotton by the left.
