”In February this year, ministers posted on a government website details of their ‘anti-red tape’ agenda on new-build properties.
In a separate report fire safety inspections, the Conservatives said, had been reduced for some companies from six hours to just 45 minutes.
The move, titled Cutting Red Tape, was part of the Tory plans to abolish a ‘health and safety’ culture that they claimed was hurting money-making businesses.”
Government ministers ‘congratulated themselves’ for cutting fire regulations
It couldn’t get any worse for Sajid Javed and his party. It shows what their true priorities lie. We need an inquest not a public inquiry to get to the real truth as to who is responsible.

Did you know that the extremely dangerous and flammable insulation padding used on the Grenfell tower block has been banned for 20 years in America? However, last night I watched the Newsnight interview on BBC News with PM, Theresa May, and she was repeatedly avoiding questions on the treble fire tragedy. So how can you have a Tory Government who use abundantly unsafe and flammable insulation padding on council owned buildings like Grenfell and say it is safe and excellent to use when many innocent lives have been destroyed in the Grenfell fire. This is in all honesty a politically scandalous state of affairs.
Time for a few facts!
GRENFELL TOWER, built by a Labour Council under a Labour Government.
Sadiq Khan was housing minister in 2008.
As Mayor, he produced a report that stated the Fire Service DID NOT require further funding.
Emma Coad, newly elected Labour MP was on the board of the tenant management group, who are now being accused of listening to tenants.
The cladding was chosen by Ed Miliband to meet EU climate legislation.
After deliberate terror attacks, we are told to show love, preach peace, light candles, say prayers and stand together.
Yet, what so far has proven no more than an accident, the hard left can Politicize the tragedy, and call for a million to riot on the street to unseat the Government who they try to smear and blame.
Easy to determine the Fascists – No cure for Socialism!
For those that like to blame the foam cladding, which is made just down the road from me by Celotex, here is the spec which meets or exceedes all fire ratings including class O which must be a Class 1 Surface Spread of Flame and low fire propagation index, in accordance with BS 476 Part 6. It’s the only cladding that meets high rise specs.
