The 72 victims of Grenfell Tower Fire were murdered, victims of the violence of neglect. Here is the proof.
A year ago, a fire started on the fourth floor of Grenfell
Tower, due to a faulty appliance. The
fire spread quickly up the side of the building because the tower had been
refurbished in 2016. Flammable cladding
had been added to the exterior building as part of an £8 million refit which
appears to have primarily made the tower more cosmetically pleasing. The money was not spent on improving fire
safety within the building, it would appear, a cause for concern for residents’
groups for years. The initial cladding that was to be used is not illegal in
the UK but its use is restricted in other countries. To save costs a cheaper version was
eventually attached to the building, a more flammable version.
Once the fire caught, residents were advised to stay in
their flats. In 99% of all cases this is
the best advice, because flats are designed to be “fire resistant boxes”
It has been a busy time for Cambridge Analytica (CA) and the DCMS Fake News committee, what with whistle-blowers in the morning, and disgraced ex-CEO Nixes in the afternoon. Okay, only one Nix, but one is enough. As I listened last Wednesday to Nix give evidence in parliament I thought, for a moment, what if he is right, and all of this is a global conspiracy of the liberal left to find a data-goat for their own political impotency?
Admittedly, it is clear CA has a somewhat murky business model, and that Nix doesn’t always tell the whole truth. But it is also obvious that his arch-nemesis and ex-employee Christopher Wylie is something of a self-publicist, that liberal Americans are looking to blame someone for Trump, that we liberals in the UK still cannot accept that Brexit will happen and yes, the MSM led by the Guardian are at war with the fake news industry.
Sleazy Nix was at least classy enough to avoid using the term fake news but, in terms of CA’s involvement or not in Brex…
