  • The blaze is thought to have been sparked by a faulty fridge
  • Experts warned the blaze was spread by cladding panels which are fitted to countless buildings across Britain

“Council housing”, I believe, is the UK’s version of “the projects”.

Welfare is the root of disempowering people. If they owned their units, paying a maintenance fee, then their “homeowners association” would have “ensure sprinklers are installed in all council tower blocks.”

Welfare is the modern day slavery. Not enough money to escape “captivity” but enough to survive in “captivity”.

Now on to “engineering” which I’ll refer to the Civil Engineers in the crowd.

I, personally, don’t think — without any particular expertise on the topic but that doesn’t stop anyone from offering opinions — that could happen here since I am unaware of any multistory building without sprinklers and working fire alarms. Additionally, I’ve never seen or heard of “cladding panels” used here in the US. (Such panels sound like “lipstick on a pig”.) Finally, in the US, I don’t think that the Insurance Industry would insure or the local Fire Departments would certify such a structure.

Requiescat In Pacem the hundred who died and I hope humanity learns.
