@BldgSafetyReg @SMcPartland @LKPleasehold @michaelgove @libdemdaisy @grenfellinquiry evidenced root cause failures leading to #Grenfell & 000s of unsafe buildings stems @GOVUK

Compounded by mercenary manufacturers gaming @GOVUK system, defective design & construction enforcers missed

Leaseholders should neither pay & be compensated in full 1/
@BldgSafetyReg @SMcPartland @LKPleasehold @michaelgove @libdemdaisy @grenfellinquiry @GOVUK More over @GOVUK purpose built flat guidance stripped out the need for common fire alarms and lead to unchecked waking watch costs falling on residents

Not satisfied @GOVUK looks to industry to resolve this mess but compounding further with #EWS1 making homes worthless /2
@BldgSafetyReg @SMcPartland @LKPleasehold @michaelgove @libdemdaisy @grenfellinquiry @GOVUK Now we see core rebel MPs & @LKPleasholders celebrating @GOVUK #buildingsafetybill which is riddled with issues, lacks secondary legislation or guidance & dependant of developers pledges to fix the #buildingsafetycrisis
@GOVUK has failed to enable the #firesafetyact /3
@BldgSafetyReg @SMcPartland @LKPleasehold @michaelgove @libdemdaisy @grenfellinquiry @GOVUK Although insurance was touched on yesterday, there’s still no pursuit @GOVUK of warranty providers, manufacturers, test houses or certifying bodies

Nor is there adequate consideration of the impact on local authority housing providers and leaseholders hit with sec 20 charges /4
@BldgSafetyReg @SMcPartland @LKPleasehold @michaelgove @libdemdaisy @grenfellinquiry @GOVUK We still don’t know the extent of the #buildingsafetycrisis or location of all dangerous buildings - it’s left to housing providers + industry to self-assess & make safe

What of the ones that slip through the cracks - look at #Ledbury near 50yrs post #RonnanPointDisaster
@BldgSafetyReg @SMcPartland @LKPleasehold @michaelgove @libdemdaisy @grenfellinquiry @GOVUK What of #Hackitt/ pipe dream of building safety cases & golden thread =huge administrative burdens on building operators & trickle down costs to families

Will buildings be any safer or are we simply enabling future prosecution & cost recovery vs getting families safe at home /6
@BldgSafetyReg @SMcPartland @LKPleasehold @michaelgove @libdemdaisy @grenfellinquiry @GOVUK @scotgov & @WelshGovernment adopting a more measured approach: state backed building safety assessments + incremental improvement in safety standards building on past overhauls of building & fire safety legislation in Scotland or Welsh adoption of #firesuppression /7
@BldgSafetyReg @SMcPartland @LKPleasehold @michaelgove @libdemdaisy @grenfellinquiry @GOVUK @scotgov @WelshGovernment @GOVUK should be leading by example, ensuring harmonisation across the UK regions & building upon European & international standardisation.

What are European & international counter parts doing post #grenfell or the adoption of best practices or tested technologies /8
@BldgSafetyReg @SMcPartland @LKPleasehold @michaelgove @libdemdaisy @grenfellinquiry @GOVUK @scotgov @WelshGovernment Why is @GOVUK intent of using the same gov advisors who created this mess to determine solutions

Why is @GOVUK holding negotiations with developers without necessary public transparency

Why are we rolling out the fixes but lack the detail before @grenfellinquiry concludes /9
@BldgSafetyReg @SMcPartland @LKPleasehold @michaelgove @libdemdaisy @grenfellinquiry @GOVUK @scotgov @WelshGovernment Near 5yrs post #grenfell we have seen the lobbyists at work & more recently in Scotland trying to slip in concession via the back door

A cottage industry gearing up competency training & building safety case services delivery

What are we missing in all the noise of who pays /10
@BldgSafetyReg @SMcPartland @LKPleasehold @michaelgove @libdemdaisy @grenfellinquiry @GOVUK @scotgov @WelshGovernment Yesterday wasn’t a win Tory rebels or @LKPleasehold might have us believe

@GOVUK is shutting down viable solutions & forcing everyone to adopt another defective bill just as they did with #FireSafety

Will all this prevent #Grenfell2 in the interim or future - I hold my breath!
@BldgSafetyReg @SMcPartland @LKPleasehold @michaelgove @libdemdaisy @grenfellinquiry @GOVUK @scotgov @WelshGovernment Supplemental @GOVUK has yet to rid our built environment of asbestos

Because they allowed a long sunset period asbestos is assumed to@be present in buildings before 2000

@GOVUK pressed to comity to asbestos removal within 40yrs is staggering.
@BldgSafetyReg @SMcPartland @LKPleasehold @michaelgove @libdemdaisy @grenfellinquiry @GOVUK @scotgov @WelshGovernment ⚠️ Breaking News

Appears to be a fire in a high-rise under remediation in #Luton

Reports of one fatality, number of occupants and attending police officers hospitalised

Reminder we cannot be complacent until all dangerous high rise are fully remediated

Not the first time to comment on the dangers of ethanol burners - and the dangers of refuelling

Ethanol is a clean burning fuel & the flames are virtually invisible to e naked eye.

'Our lives changed forever when we caught fire' - BBC News bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan…
Refuelling #Ehtonalburners is incredibly dangerous - see #YouTube clip in the post below

These are commonly called jet flames or to give its scientific name boiling liquid expanding vapour explosions (BLEVE)

Result is devastating flash-burns to face, upper body & lungs.

We need more of this - much more of this from the international community before the air bridges & resupply routes are severed.

@GOVUK what assets are being deployed to #StandWithUkraine
Needs more of these also

Reports of Netherlands also dispatching 200 Stinger Missile to #StandWithUkraine
Now Germany subscribes to send 1000 anti-tank & 500 stingers

#Russians pls you-have to stand down and get they boys & girls back home. This is a war which can’t be won as the world #StandWithUkriane

Note what looks like polystyrene being added to make the Molotovs more potent - acting like a plasticiser or home made napalm.

A truly horrible but sadly necessary defensive weapon in this context unless the world rearms or better reinforces #Ukraine
This image says it all wife’s, sisters, mothers, daughters, grandmothers forced to prepare for war.
