... as Jeremy Conbyn has already completed the inquiry on his own and in
record time and kindly shared the finding on PMQ: it was simply
austerity that was the cause for it all...
Prime Minister material? most definitely!
You show me another person with 2 x E grade A levels who would manage to
complete his engineering (structural and chemical), fire safety
regulation, charter surveying, legal, etc qualifications in the two
weeks that it took our prime-minister-in-waiting (his words, not mine)
to do his?
Well, easy to see that now, but many an expert did not see this coming
for many years (perhaps decades).
This is the reason a public inquiry was set up and why someone who
considers himself as the prime minister in waiting (5.5 months to go
according to him...) should wait for its findings, just like the rest of
us, before starting to make unfounded accusations and draw conclusions
about the causes and the sequence of events that let to it.
We have a government who did not keep the fire regulations up-to-date
and easy to understand as building technology changed, despite many
requests. Recently they down tools for a general election instead of
making sure that the country was being governed properly.
They can't even stop unsolicited phone calls. Makes you wonder how well
the country would cope if it is not part of the EU. There are umpteen
laws that come from the EU
Even the government has worked out that it would be sensible to take
action by checking other buildings before the public enquiry finishes.
You do understand that the cladding did *not* meet the building
It quite clearly states that any insulation or cladding should not
It also states what standard the materials must meet.
It is what is being tested for and so far they have all failed the test.
The problem is not in the standards required.
Section 12.7 or close.
Its the building approvals system where the problem lies.
You want big brother to control international calls when you can buy a
phone to control what calls *you* get?
They have just found out people are not building to the regulations so
they are going to make sure they are fixed.
I have yet to be convinced that the tests currently being performed are
the same as the "regulation test", which is a flame for ten minutes in
the middle of the sheet of aluminium on the outside of the panel.
And not sticking the exposed end of a panel on bonfire for half an hour.
There have been numerous fines against UK telemarketers but it hasn't
stopped them. They can't fine people in India phoning.
Getting a call blocking phone does stop them.
Sky do a call blocking service on their lines now but it aint free to
all users. It works the same way as trucall.
I don't think any of the companies involved in such practices ever paid
the fine as they typically go into administration during the trial (and
usually re-emerge, with the same directors under a new name soon after).
I do believe that new legislation is about to be introduced that will
allow the fines to be imposed on the directors rather than the company.
