This is what happens when profiteering businesses don’t take their responsibilities seriously.

How ridiculous.

The inquiry into the fire at Grenfell Tower almost a year ago has heard that the organisations involved in refurbishing the building did not understand how the cladding they used would react in a fire.

Do you believe that?

These people are trying to say they didn’t know it would burst into flames and turn the building into an inferno, killing 72 people according to official figures.

That is no excuse.

It was their job to know how the cladding would react in a fire. If they didn’t know, they should not have used it.

It seems clear to This Writer that the only consideration on the minds of those involved was money.

Personally, I’m sick of hearing about fat cat businesspeople failing in their basic duties, saying “Oh we didn’t know. Sorry!” and getting away with it.

It has happened far too often, especially under the current corrupt Conservative government that has relaxed regulations, allowing these charlatans the opportunity to create these dangers to the lives of others. The Tories have responsibility here, too.

Who knows how many other tragedies are just waiting to happen – not just relating to building regulations but in any of the other areas where the Tories relaxed the rules?

I don’t. But I don’t want to hear anybody responsible for such future harm smugly telling an inquiry they didn’t know it was likely to happen.

Let’s have some proper accountability – from the businesses that failed those who died, and from the government that allowed them to do it.
