Mystery death of tycoon banker Michael Treichl

On Friday Michael Treichl, the 68-year-old multi-millionaire owner of 500-year-old Parnham House in Dorset, was found dead in what has been reported as a suicide.

His death comes just two months after a blaze tore through the £15million mansion, leaving only the exterior walls intact.

Police confirmed they were treating the fire as suspicious and arrested Mr Treichl as part of their enquiries.

Movements of Container Ship ACX CRYSTAL involved in a Collision with USS Fitzgerald

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a data readout from the automated ship tracking system. The collision occurs at the 1:00 mark on the video. It looks like Crystal was on autopilot because after the collision diverts the crash south the ship returns to its base course, then is apparently put on manual and goes back to the scene of the collision, possibly to render aid, but after several back and forth passes in the area, then sails off. The idea that this was a deliberate attack seems far-fetched. Also note that the USS Fitzgerald does not show up in the data even though warships usually are trackable on this system during peacetime operations.

It Wasn't Just The NSA: Germany Spied On The White House For Years

One of the profound revelations from the data released by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden was that in addition to spying on its own citizens, the NSA engaged in aggressive espionage on some of America's closest allies, most notably Angela Merkel and her Blackberry. It now turns out that Germany had been returning the favor.

According to Germany's Spiegel, Germany's foreign intelligence service had long spied on numerous official and business targets in the United States, including the White House. The magazine said it had seen documents showing that the intelligence service, the BND, had a list of some 4,000 so-called selector keywords for surveillance between 1998 and 2006. These included telephone or fax numbers, as well as email addresses at the White House as well as the US finance and foreign ministries.

Qatar Shuns 'Unreasonable' Saudi-Led Demands To Cut Ties With Iran, Shut Al-Jazeera

Qatar on June 24 labelled as "unreasonable" demands made by four Arab states to shutter the Al-Jazeera network, cut most ties with Iran, and close Turkey's air base as the price of ending a regional boycott of the small Persian Gulf state.

The demands were included in a 13-point list presented to Doha as an ultimatum by Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates which went well beyond the original reason those states cited for snubbing Doha -- that it was funding and harboring "terrorists."

Hundreds evacuated from London tower blocks over fears of Grenfell repeat

Hundreds of residents of a housing estate in north London have been evacuated overnight after fire inspectors said five tower blocks were at risk following the Grenfell Tower blaze.

After demands aired, solution to Qatar crisis seems far off

Faced with a sweeping set of demands, Qatar insisted Friday it can indefinitely survive the economic and diplomatic steps its neighbors have taken to try to pressure it into compliance, even as a top Emirati official warned the tiny country to brace for a long-term economic squeeze.

Given 10 days to make a decision, Qatar said it was reviewing the specific concessions demanded of the tiny Persian Gulf nation, which include shuttering Al-Jazeera and cutting ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. But Qatari officials didn't budge from their previous insistence that they won't sit down with Saudi Arabia and other Arab nations to negotiate an end to the crisis while under siege.

North Korea Defends Otto Warmbier’s Treatment

North Korea responded for the first time on Friday to American accusations that it had fatally brutalized Otto F. Warmbier, the captive college student, asserting he was given medical treatment and treated with respect even though he was a “criminal of the enemy state.”

Mr. Warmbier, 22, who was released in a coma by the North Koreans on June 13 after 17 months of captivity and returned to his family in Ohio, died less than a week later. His death outraged the United States and worsened already-poor American relations with North Korea.

American doctors who examined him after his return home reported extensive brain damage but could not explain what caused the injury.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gilad Atzmon has theorized that Otto F. Warmbier was operating as an Israeli spy. If so, he may have been given a suicide pill ... supplied by the lowest bidder. I find it odd that in such a contentious issue, there will be no autopsy of the body to determine what actually happened, supposedly requested by the family, but allowing for endless unchecked corporate media speculation on the matter!

Media omits legal status of man arrested for murder of Muslim girl – over and over again

The establishment media’s hasty misreporting and omission of facts relating to the alleged murder of a 17-year old Muslim girl by a 22-year old illegal alien suspect Sunday morning looks like an attempt to push a narrative and not the facts.

Before the details of the brutal murder were able to materialize, The Atlantic did not hesitate in trying to fit the killing into a neatly wrapped narrative, writing “Muslim Americans are mourning—and terrified.”

Grenfell Tower residents NOT offered sprinklers like council chief said

RESIDENTS of the tragic Grenfell Tower block were not asked if they wanted sprinklers in the building as part of the ill-fated £8.6million refurbishment, Express.co.uk can exclusively reveal.

Nicholas Paget-Brown, leader of Kensington and Chelsea Council, was widely criticised last week after he appeared to lay the blame for there being no sprinklers inside the 24-storey building during an interview on Newsnight on BBC2.

He suggested residents had been given the option of sprinklers in the 120-flat block, but snubbed the chance amid fears it would prolong the project.

However, Express.co.uk has discovered the option of having sprinklers was never put on the table to residents or as part of the proposal.

The Australian Discovery That Could Replace Fossil Fuels

Australian scientists have developed a new efficient catalyst that converts carbon dioxide from the air into synthetic natural gas in a "clean" process, using solar energy.

Undertaken by University of Adelaide in collaboration with CSIRO, the research could make viable a process that has enormous potential to replace fossil fuels and continue to use existing carbon-based fuel technologies without increasing atmospheric CO2.

The catalyst the researchers have developed effectively drives the process of combining CO2 with hydrogen to produce methane (the main component of the fossil fuel natural gas) and water. Currently, natural gas is one of the main fuels used for industrial activities.

32TB of Windows 10 internal builds, core source code leak online

A massive trove of Microsoft's internal Windows operating system builds and chunks of its core source code have leaked online.

The data – some 32TB of installation images and software blueprints that compress down to 8TB – were uploaded to betaarchive.com, the latest load of files provided just earlier this week. It is believed the data has been exfiltrated from Microsoft's in-house systems since around March.

The leaked code is Microsoft's Shared Source Kit: according to people who have seen its contents, it includes the source to the base Windows 10 hardware drivers plus Redmond's PnP code, its USB and Wi-Fi stacks, its storage drivers, and ARM-specific OneCore kernel code.

Anyone who has this information can scour it for security vulnerabilities, which could be exploited to hack Windows systems worldwide. The code runs at the heart of the operating system, at some of its most trusted levels.

The canary in the asset bubble is popping: $3.8 trillion bubble that you are probably not aware of.

The death of retail as we know it is real. People are shifting their buying habits online in a fast and furious way. The only retail outlets that seem to be thriving are dollar stores but they are thriving because many Americans are living paycheck to paycheck and online shopping is too expensive for some. So it should come as no surprise that the way things were once done is being upended again by technology. Giants like Amazon and Wal-Mart are cannibalizing entire industries. Back in 2012 Amazon had less than 10 million Prime subscribers. Today it is over 80 million. So the big bubble that is now imploding is that in commercial real estate. There is $3.8 trillion in commercial real estate loans outstanding and the bubble in this market couldn’t be peaking at a worse time.

Canary In The Coal Mine: Unfunded Liabilities Have Turned Illinois Into A “Banana Republic” On The Brink Of Bankruptcy

Illinois is the perfect example of what happens when your state is run by fiscally irresponsible dunces for decades. The state is buried debt, and hasn’t passed a budget in over 700 days. 100% of their monthly revenue is being consumed by court ordered payments, and the Illinois Department of Transportation has revealed that they may not be able to pay contractors (who are working on over 700 infrastructure projects) after July 1st if the state doesn’t pass a budget. To top it all off, the state’s credit rating is one step away from junk status, the lowest of any state. Because of these factors, Illinois may become the first state to declare bankruptcy since the Great Depression.

Governor Bruce Rauner has gone so far as to call his state a “banana republic.”

The state’s comptroller has admitted that “We are in massive crisis mode.”

Leaked Police Report: There Are 23 Muslim-Controlled “No Go Zones” In Sweden: Plagued With Violence, Sexual Assaults And Gun Crimes

Though European leaders and their US-based counterparts have vehemently denied their existence, a leaked report from the Swedish police confirms that there are at least 23 Muslim-controlled “No-Go Zones” and some 60 “vulnerable areas” where non-muslim citizens of the country can no longer visit safely.

As noted in the RT video below, the areas are plagued with violence, sexual assaults and gun crimes, and things have gotten so bad that police and emergency services personnel refuse to enter.

According to the Swedish National Police Commissioner:

We see developments in our country which are not always going in the right direction… We have more than 60 vulnerable areas in and around major cities in Sweden.. and we see criminality there and we need to turn around these developments in those areas… and we need the assistance of other parts of our society.

Some US Airlines Are Testing Mandatory Facial Recognition Scans On Americans Flying Abroad

Just when you thought air travel couldn’t get any more invasive, authoritarian and downright miserable, the Department of Homeland Security and two U.S. carriers are determined to prove you wrong.

Yesterday, Harrison Rudolph, a law fellow at the Center on Privacy & Technology at Georgetown Law, wrote a very troubling article at Slate titled, DHS Is Starting to Scan Americans’ Faces Before They Get on International Flights. Here’s some of what we learned:

Decades ago, Congress mandated that federal authorities keep track of foreign nationals as they enter and leave the United States. If the government could record when every visitor stepped on and off of U.S. soil, so the thinking went, it could easily see whether a foreign national had overstayed a visa.

But in June of last year, without congressional authorization, and without consulting the public, the Department of Homeland Security started scanning the faces of Americans leaving the country, too.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As the daughter of a very conscientious aircraft instrument mechanic (because I thought that everyone was just as diligent as was my late dad), I used to love to fly, when I was younger; now, being treated like livestock, poked, prodded and screamed at by the near-moronic maniacs at the TSA has made me absolutely hate flying.

Now the Senate goes after Loretta Lynch as Republicans AND Democrats probe how Obama's attorney general may have slowed down the Hillary Clinton email investigation

The Senate Judiciary Committee has launched an investigation into what former Attorney General Loretta Lynch may have done in 2016 to influence an FBI investigation related to Hillary Clinton's classified email scandal.

Lynch was widely criticized for meeting with former president Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac last summer while his wife was under criminal investigation for mishandling classified materials.

Mrs. Clinton, a former secretary of state and at that time the Democratic White House nominee, kept her State Department work emails on a private email server at her home, obscuring them from government record-keepers.

She was ultimately not prosecuted even though thousands of classified emails were later recovered from the server.

The Passing Of The Pelosi Era

In the first round of the special election for the House seat in Georgia’s Sixth District, 30-year-old Jon Ossoff swept 48 percent. He more than doubled the vote of his closest GOP rival, Karen Handel.

A Peach State pickup for the Democrats and a huge humiliation for President Trump seemed at hand.

But in Tuesday’s final round, Ossoff, after the most costly House race in history, got 48 percent again, and lost. If Democratic donors are grabbing pitchforks, who can blame them?

And what was Karen Handel’s cutting issue?

Ossoff lived two miles outside the district and represented the values of the Democratic minority leader, whom he would vote to make the speaker of the house, Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco.

The Pelosi factor has been a drag on Democrats in all four of the special elections the party has lost since Trump’s November triumph.

Saudi Reshuffle Could Completely Shake Up Oil Markets

The new crown prince is known to be a bit unpredictable. In the early phase of the oil price meltdown, he said that prices did not matter. But the plunge below $30 per barrel in early 2016 seemed to have changed the calculus. Last year Saudi Arabia became the principle driver behind a return to “market management,” that is restraining output to stabilize prices.

The IPO is another signature initiative of the young prince. He hopes to sell off 5 percent of Aramco, which he argues could raise around $100 billion (some analysts dispute that figure) in order to finance his Vision 2030, which calls for a diversification of the Saudi economy. The elevation of Mohammed bin Salman is being interpreted in some corners as an effort to accelerate this economic transformation. With low oil prices, a sizable budget deficit, large but dwindling cash reserves, and a restive and young population, time is of the essence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hate the characterisation of war between Saudi Arabia and Iran as "inevitable", but in light of the fact that the US has now "thrown its hat in" with the House of Saud, courtesy of President Trump's recent visit to Riyadh, and his own virulently anti-Iran, pro-Israel stance, I am afraid that characterisation is absolutely correct.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has opened a probe into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s efforts to shape the FBI’s investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the committee’s chairman announced Friday.
In a letter to Ms. Lynch, the committee asks her to detail the depths of her involvement in the FBI’s investigation, including whether she ever assured Clinton confidantes that the probe wouldn’t “push too deeply into the matter.”
Fired FBI Director James B. Comey has said publicly that Ms. Lynch tried to shape the way he talked about the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s emails, and he also hinted at other behavior “which I cannot talk about yet” that made him worried about Ms. Lynch’s ability to make impartial decisions.
Mr. Comey said that was one reason why he took it upon himself to buck Justice Department tradition and reveal his findings about Mrs. Clinton last year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Lynch will most probably have to be subpoenaed, and may well not respond to it even if she is subpoenaed.

IF I were Charles Grassley right now, I would be preventing her from leaving the country to go to a country with which the US does not have an extradition treaty; because, were I a betting woman, I would almost bet on her doing something like that, and right the heck now!!

South Korea Does Not Need U.S. Permission to Engage in Policy Dialogue with North Korea. ROK Presidential Office

South Korea or its head of state Moon Jae-in does not need permission from the U.S. president or anyone else to engage North Korea in dialogue, Seoul’s presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said Wednesday.
“Resumption of dialogue with North Korea may need to be pursued in close cooperation and consultation with the United States, but South Korea does not need to be allowed by the U.S. to do so,” Kwun Hyuk-ki, a Cheong Wa Dae spokesman, told Yonhap News Agency.

The remarks came in reaction to a question by a U.S. journalist in a recent interview with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, in which the interviewer from U.S. broadcaster CBS stated it was not clear whether U.S. President Donald Trump would “agree to allow” his South Korean counterpart to negotiate with the North Koreans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like ROK President moon is developing some "male attributes" when dealing with President Trump, and the issue of rapprochement with North Korea!!

CIA agent running massive national drug smuggling ring

In a major display of hypocrisy, a CIA agent was charged this week running a massive drug smuggling operation out of North Carolina. James Dennis “J.D.” Smith, 49, was arrested Saturday in Charlotte in connection with a massive and ongoing national federal marijuana smuggling investigation.

Be careful about the pirated versions also on YouTube as you have to click an external link to see them ... that feeds you malware!

How the Government Conditions Citizens to Obey

The government has basically turned society into a pinball machine which bounces citizens from here to there, taking away control of their destiny. And then, they use their own coercion as an example of why we need more coercion: because people cannot control their own outcomes in life!

Saudi Arabia vs Qatar: Middle East Controlled-Demolition Plan?

There is trouble in oil paradise.

Prince bin Salman has assumed complete control of the Saudi kingdom’s government apparatus. This is a sign that the Saudi hardliners, vis-a-vis the crisis they created with Qatar, have won the prelude of the battle. As Saudi Arabia’s minister of defense, bin Salman was the architect of the nasty war in Yemen, which until the split between the two nations, included Qatar. What happened to the beautiful friendship between the Saudi and the Qatari rulers? Its apex was the sponsorship of jihadists, first to topple Gaddafi in Libya, and their ultimate collaborative proxy-terrorism accomplishment was the creation of ISIS to wreck Iraq, and to topple Bashar al-Assad in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Saudi Arabia has just given Qatar 10 days to accede to its demands, as of today's date:

Saudi Arabia gives Qatar 10 days to meet its demands to close down Al Jazeera, and cut ties with Iran.

Counting forward from today, this gives Qatar until the end of Sunday, 2 July to comply.

My best bet would be, that Saudi Arabia will move against Qatar on or about 4 July, when Americans are sedated with food, from the Independence Day holiday, and won't be paying attention.

But the question I have to ask is, what standing orders have the US commanders over those 10,000 troops stationed in Qatar been given in if that happens?!?

Turkish troops are already on the ground in Qatar, and doing exercises.

Turkish troops hold exercises in Qatar in show of support

As of the end of this 10 day period, all hell could break loose here, if in fact Saudi Prince Mohammed has green lit a Saudi invasion of Qatar.

The Over-Criminalization of American Life

The over-criminalization of America has undermined justice, the rule of law and legal egalitarianism. While the corporate media devotes itself to sports, entertainment, dining out and the latest political kerfuffle, America has become the Over-Criminalization Capital of the World. The proliferation of laws and administrative regulations, federal, state and local, that carry criminal penalties has swollen into the tens of thousands.

US Recklessly Provoking Russia. The Unthinkable Could Happen by Accident or Design

Instead of fulfilling a campaign promise to improve bilateral relations, Trump so far continues acting provocatively.

He’s pursuing the same reckless agenda as Obama, pushing the envelope toward possible direct confrontation with Russia.

Despite neither country wanting war, unfolding events may cause the unthinkable to happen by accident or design.

Among major powers, Russia is the world’s leading peace and stability champion – America just the opposite.

It’s recklessly waging wars in multiple theaters, threatening conflicts against North Korea, Iran, and perhaps Russia the way things are going.
Madness defines US policy, state terror on a global scale, naked aggression its main expression, controlling planet earth, its resources and people its objective – risking potentially life-destroying nuclear war.
Last week, Senate members near unanimously imposed new illegal sanctions on Russia, including on its energy sector. House action awaits.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looking at the geopolitical situation unfolding, many times, Mike and I are reminded of that archetypal dream of watching two trains, slowly heading for each other on the same track moving toward mutual destruction, but absolutely unable to stop it.

It is painfully clear to me, at this juncture in history, the the American Deep State is provoking Russia in every possible way, as a prelude toward war against it. The provocations are coming in our treatment of Russia itself; North Korea; Syria; and Iran.

As a Christian pacifist activist, who never advocates military action through which to resolve geopolitical conflicts, I am utterly appalled at how intensely President Trump has embraced war over true diplomacy in so many of the situations I am seeing developing which could very well spiral out of control.

I just see so many flash points coming up, that it feels as though war with Russia (and perhaps, also China) is imminent; it feels like less a question of if, but when, such a war will start.

The only thing I can do is to continue to bear witness, and counsel our readers/listeners to start prepping now, if they have not already started. A very good place to start is the subscription to Daisy Luther's "The Organic Prepper" newsletter. Yes, you will get some ads for goods and services here, but she is brilliantly and brutally astute, when it comes to the difference between surviving upheaval...or not.

THEY WERE ‘GRILLED ALIVE’: US GOVT EXPOSED RUNNING NAZI-LIKE TORTURE PROGRAM

A network of secretive prisons in southern Yemen provide the backdrop for the alleged barbaric acts allegedly carried out by forces from the U.S. and United Arab Emirates — many of those detention facilities remain hidden in plain sight.

That some of the covert prisons sit inside military bases might not be much of a shock, but others are located in ports, an airport, private villas, and even a nightclub — and all, according to the AP, remain untouchable by the embattled Yemeni government.

Washington Compost BEX - Obama’s secret struggle to punish Russia for Putin’s election assault

Early last August, an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides.

Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Compost is trying to respond to the question of why Obama didn't do anything if Russia was tampering with the election, so now the story that he was but it was secret!!!!!!!!!!!

And if you believe THAT one, I have some of Saddam's nuclear weapons to sell you!

Organically-Grown: Is It Worth The Price You Pay? An Interview With An Organic Farm Manager

Even though Whole Foods, in my opinion, has not been a pristine purveyor of what I’d call non-GMO and chemically-free foods, as I and others would have liked, it did a respectable job considering all things involved while also making a handsome bottom line for itself over the years, but now finds itself losing ground to the organically-grown foods revolution taking place and which Amazon obviously wants to become a key player and corner a large segment of that lucrative market. Consumers have become food conscious and want safe, clean and better tasting food!

US Foreign Policy, Global Hegemony, “Soft Power” and the Geopolitics of Eurasia

Henry Kissinger, one of the fundamental figures in creating and maintaining the US policy of global hegemonism during the Cold War[1], was quite clear and precise in his overviewing the issue of the American geopolitical position, national goals and foreign policy. His remarks can be summarized in the following points:
The US is an island off the shores of the large landmass of Eurasia.
The resources and population of Eurasia far exceed the resources and population of the US.
Any domination by any single state from Eurasia (either from the European or the Asian part) is a critical danger for the American geopolitical and geoeconomic aims as well as national interest regardless during or after the time of the Cold War.
A mortal danger for the US is formation of any political-military coalitions between the Euroasian great powers (primarily between the USSR/Russia and China) as such coalition would have a real capacity to outstrip both the US economy and military.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But it looks as though the political/economic developments between members of BRIC and the SCO are changing this game, and quite concretely.

The economic reforms in China and Russia, coupled with their moving to embrace Europe, with trade and infrastructure, (like Xi Jinping's Silk Road project China pledges $124 billion for new Silk Road as champion of globalization) are leaving the USSA in the dust; this is why I am hearing so much demonisation of both countries, as though to prepare American citizens for wars against them, to stop the ascent of both the yuan, and the ruble.

Did you know that before 1973 it was illegal in the US to profit off of health care. The Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973 passed by Nixon changed everything.

In 1973, Nixon did a personal favor for his friend and campaign financier, Edgar Kaiser, then president and chairman of Kaiser-Permanente. Nixon signed into law, the Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973, in which medical insurance agencies, hospitals, clinics and even doctors, could begin functioning as for-profit business entities instead of the service organizations they were intended to be. And which insurance company got the first taste of federal subsidies to implement HMOA73 … *gasp* … why, it was Kaiser-Permanente!

Why the Liberal Democrats NEED Everyone Vaccinated…

When 2016 liberal Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton laughed in the face of American parents concerned about mandatory vaccines for their children, little did she realize that that insult would cost her the election – and it did. The HUGE anti-vaxxer movement turned to Donald Trump. Hillary’s insult, and the reaction, tipped the scales.

Republican Lawmaker Wants to Make It Legal to Carry a Gun in Washington DC… But Only for Congressmen

When it comes to gun control, no one is more hypocritical than liberal celebrities and politicians. While these people promote the end of gun rights for ordinary Americans, it's often the case that they are protected in public and in their homes, by cadres of highly trained and armed bodyguards. They reap the benefits of the Second Amendment, while treating the rest of us like children who can't be trusted with a gun.

However, it's not just prominent liberals who are hypocritical when it comes to gun rights.

James Comey Visits The New York Times

Just hours after President Trump admitted he did not record any of his conversations with James Comey, the former FBI Director was spotted entering The New York Times office, in Times Square, NYC.

As The Daily Mail notes, Comey confessed to being the source of a leak to the Times about private, unorthodox meeting he had with the president before he was fired in June.

George Orwell’s son says his father’s ‘1984’ was ‘prescient’

The audience at the opening night on Broadway of a new stage adaptation of George Orwell’s dystopian fantasy “1984” will include a special guest — the author’s son.

Richard Blair, whose father finished the book in 1949 when he was a young boy, was in New York on Thursday to cheer on the cast amid a huge jump in interest of his father’s nightmarish vison of the future.

“His novel ‘1984’ was his take on what could possibly happen — not necessarily will happen — but, as it turned out, it was really quite prescient,” said Blair. “Crickey, it’s still fresh today as it was then.”

America Divided: "Summer Of Rage" Accelerates

Here Is The Reality Of Our Predicament: “The US System Is Going To Move Into The Next Phase Of Collapse Under Trump’s Watch”

Just after the US presidential election in 2016 I published an article titled ‘Order Out Of Chaos: Defeat Of The Left Comes With A Cost’, covering a rather difficult subject matter, namely the concept of “4th Generation Warfare” and how it is used by establishment elitists to defeat popular resistance to their agenda of centralization and globalization. 4th Gen tactics are confusing to many because most people think in terms of single movements and direct correlations; they think that a punch thrown is a punch intended to strike, rather than intended as a feint or misdirection.

Police consider manslaughter charges for London fire after cladding tiles fail safety tests

The police also said that insulation and tiles used in the building’s exterior cladding had failed fire safety tests.

“Preliminary tests on the insulation samples collected from Grenfell Tower showed that they combusted soon after the test started. The initial test on the cladding tiles also failed the safety tests,” Detective Superintendent Fiona McCormack told reporters.
