Yet another example of poor governance in UK leads to tragedy.
What is it with Westminster politicians, civil servants, and local government officials that they have such a propensity for monumental cock-up’s like the Grenfell Tower disaster.
And already the buck passing has begun. Evidence of repeated and ignored warnings from Fire Authorities and Construction Material Standards Authorities to Government Ministers. How culpable are these people, and will they ever be bought to account, and pay a price for their failures ?
The mighty market has failed. A fetish for efficiency of service provision perversely leads to ineffective processes, inadequate responses, and loss of human life. Fragmented agencies trying to co-ordinate an emergency rescue with lack of equipment and personnel.
At some point the karma has to turn.
