Was cladding to blame for rapid spread of fire? Cheap 'Polystyrene-type' may have helped spread devastating blaze after it 'went up like a matchstick' - as council is accused of penny pinching despite warnings not to take cheapest bid

Cut price cladding added to tower blocks built in the 1970s could be to blame for the rapid spread of a fire which claimed the lives of at least 12 people.

New plastic rain-proof cladding was installed at Grenfell Tower in White City, London, in May 2016 as part of a £10million refurbishment - but 'went up like a match' and helped the fire spread quickly from the fourth to 27th floor.

This evening it also was suggested that council penny pinching and accepting the lowest bid was to blame for the blaze according to one former worker.

Don't touch that mail! London uni fears '0-day' used to cram network with ransomware

University College London is tonight tackling a serious ransomware outbreak that has scrambled academics' files.

It is feared the software nasty may be exploiting a zero-day vulnerability, or is a previously unseen strain of malware as antivirus defenses did not spot it in time, we're told. Eggheads at the UK uni are urged to not open any more email attachments, which may be booby-trapped with the ransomware.

The UCL Information Services Division (ISD) said it had locked down access to the shared and networked drives that have been under siege from the malware since it began infecting users around mid-day Wednesday via an email message.

Map shows areas of England where the most antidepressants are prescribed

The number of antidepressants prescribed in England has risen sevenfold in the last 25 years, new analysis of NHS data has revealed.

Researchers looked at prescription data for different regions in the country and found twice as many antidepressants are prescribed per person in the North East as in the South East and London.

Doctors made more than 64 million prescriptions of antidepressants in 2016, according to database company Exasol, which conducted the research.

BREXIT BOOST: Britain would be '£156 billion a year better off WITHOUT a deal with EU'

Former British Chambers of Commerce director John Longworth has issued “a Brexit fight back” after Remainers have tried to capitalise on the hung parliament election result to claim that Theresa May’s vision of a clean Break with the EU is “dead”.

The annual boost - worth around a third in growth for the British economy - would continue for at least 12 years as Britain’s economy is transformed by throwing off the shackles imposed by Brussels.

It is the equivalent of adding the entire NHS and defence annual budgets back into the UK each year.

Revealed: Corbyn ally admits Labour WOULD concede on freedom of movement for Brexit deal

A LABOUR PARTY frontbencher has revealed that the party would concede over freedom of movement in a Jeremy Corbyn style Brexit deal.

Key figures in the Labour Party have produced differing accounts of what the party would do if they were in power towards Brexit.

John McDonnell appeared to suggest that the Party would leave the single market, however on Monday Barry Gardiner claimed that would not necessarily have to be the case.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Rebecca Long-Bailey, the Shadow Business Secretary, said the party would concede on immigration and law for “impediment-free access” to markets.

Is Michael Foster a Chameleon?

The utterly repellent Michael Foster who has spent the last 2 years waging a relentless campaign against Jeremy Corbyn has now apparently become a Corbyn supporter. Foster now admits that he was “wrong on Corbyn.” The Jewish labour donor used the notorious Zionist Times of Israel to “tip his hat to the leader’s success”

In a spectacular admission that portrays total cultural and political detachment Foster says, “I was wrong on that his brand of leadership and socialism would not appeal.”

The same character who a year ago professed that he despised Corbyn and labelled his supporters "Sturm Abteilung" (Nazi stormtroopers) has conveniently changed his spots.

LONDON INFERNO: 'No-one on top 3 floors survived' 6 dead, 74 injured as fire STILL rages

A local community leader, working to locate victims, has claimed "nobody who lived on the top three floors survived" the fire which has destroyed Grenfell Tower on the Lancaster West Estate in North Kensington after starting just before 1am.

He said: "We have a list of missing people - there are so many. It's possible there are more than 50, possibly hundreds."

London’s Grenfell apartment was a death trap before fire

“It is a truly terrifying thought but the Grenfell Action Group firmly believe that only a catastrophic event will expose the ineptitude and incompetence of our landlord, the KCTMO, and bring an end to the dangerous living conditions and neglect of health and safety legislation that they inflict upon their tenants and leaseholders,” wrote the Grenfell Action Group in a blog post from November. “We believe that the KCTMO are an evil, unprincipled, mini-mafia who have no business to be charged with the responsibility of looking after the everyday management of large-scale social housing estates and that their sordid collusion with the RBKC Council is a recipe for a future major disaster.”

They added, “It is our conviction that a serious fire in a tower block or similar high density residential property is the most likely reason that those who wield power at the KCTMO will be found out and brought to justice!”

Grand Designs' Kevin McCloud suggests safety aspects weren't fully addressed after 'dangerous' cladding used in Grenfell Tower

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Kevin said: "I think there are two principle issues which seem to be emerging.

"One is yes the residents had already realised that the exit routes from the building were inadequate. There’s only one point of exit for the entire building.

"They were all told that in the case of fire to stay in their flats - which seems bonkers.

"The other thing is the cladding, which we’re beginning to point towards as the culprit and describing as a plastic based product, it seems very strange that it should have gone up so quickly.

"Every single building site in this country has to be approved and go through some extremely rigorous testing thats to do with longevity, structural performance and also fire resistance.

"To see a material in 50 minutes across an entire building take flame like this and allow the flame to move so quickly, well this material is quite dangerous and clearly doesn’t perform."

Director of company responsible for Grenfell Tower refurbishment admits he is clueless over what cladding was made from

The director of the company responsible for the Grenfell Tower refurbishment has admitted he doesn't know what the cladding was made from.

Police have confirmed there have been at least six fatalities after a huge blaze engulfed the 24-storey tower block overnight.

At this early stage many fear the colourful plastic cladding, which was recently placed on the building as part of a major refurbishment, could have helped spread of the flames.

London Fire: Grenfell Tower’s Controversial History Emerges After Devastating Fire

And the 400-500 residents, spread over the 20 residential levels, had been advised to “stay put” inside their flats - possibly because there was only one exit.

“The people trapped in the flats were screaming and crying for help. It was very very sad,” Hamda Ali, who lives nearby and got to the scene shortly before 1am, told HuffPost UK.

“The entire building doesn’t have an alarm and the fire brigade were telling people not to come out. I saw people jumping from the top floors without anything because the only way out was down the stairs, which has a gas pipe next to it.”

Samira Lamrani told HuffPost UK that the building was an “accident waiting to happen”.

"All our warnings fell on deaf ears": Grenfell Tower had £9m refurbishment but no sprinklers before deadly inferno

Residents at a London tower block devastated by fire have claimed their "warnings fell on deaf ears" as details of a recent multi-million pound upgrade were revealed.

At least six people are dead and another 50 injured after the 24-storey Grenfell Tower, in Kensington, became engulfed in flames in the early hours of this morning.

Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation (KCTMO) spent £8.7million renovating the block - improving its community facilities, opening new flats and cladding the exterior - after winning planning permission in 2014.

But residents claim there was no sprinkler system in the building.

And it today emerged Theresa May’s new chief of staff was one of a series of housing ministers who “sat on” a report warning high-rise blocks like Grenfell Tower were vulnerable to fire for four years.

May is essentially being forced to either reverse Article 50 or seal a 'Soft Brexit' deal for Britain

LONDON - Prime Minister Theresa May is being encouraged to either reverse Article 50, and cancel Britain's plan to leave the European Union, or seal a "soft Brexit" deal that is less harsh than what she was pushing for before the snap general election.

May triggered Article 50 in March, which kickstarted the official two year period where Britain has to negotiate its deal to leave the EU. Britain will leave the EU on March 29, 2019 - unless she calls to reverse it and all other 27-EU member states vote unanimously to allow her to cancel Brexit.

Who hasn't seen this coming?

The unexpected electoral success of the Labour Party has put to shame the predominant cynical wisdom of the connoisseurs, even those who pretended to sympathise with Corbyn and whose preferred excuse was: “Yes, I would vote for him, but he is unelectable, the people are too manipulated and afraid, the moment is not yet right for such a radical move…”

War-crazed Tory Party Ignore How Terrorists Really Work

The Conservative government largely avoided being blamed during the election campaign for its failure to stop the terrorist attacks. It appealed to British communal solidarity in defiance of those who carried out the atrocities, which was a perfectly reasonable stance, though one that conveniently enables the Conservatives to pillory any critics for dividing the nation at a time of crisis. When Jeremy Corbyn correctly pointed out that the UK policy of regime change in Iraq, Syria and Libya had destroyed state authority and provided sanctuaries for al-Qaeda and Isis, he was furiously accused of seeking to downplay the culpability of the terrorists.

This was a bittersweet election. We rejoice at the fact the Conservatives have been pegged back and the landslide they presumed was theirs by right has been denied them. We are delighted that an alternative to austerity and nearly 40 years of free-market fundamentalism has secured 40% of the vote. We celebrate the exuberance and scale of the youth vote and both feel an incredible duty to repay their faith in us and our colleagues. And we are proud that in some key marginals cooperation not to split the progressive vote resulted in the Tories losing.

John Bull's Other Haters

[A to-the-point condensation of cold, hard facts regarding the Left's cognitive dissonance. Any one of them who possess a mind even partially able to examine the contradiction of his/her position must surely grasp such after reading this.}

The United Kingdom's new minority government is being maintained in power by Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Parity. Barely had the news emerged than the DUP, as we saw in the accompanying photo, instantly catapulted over previously reviled bogeypersons such as Katie Hopkins and Morrissey to become fashionable young London's latest two-minute hate. Two minutes, incidentally, is not an Orwellian allusion but the time between first hearing about them and painting up your placard. Brendan O'Neill in The Spectator:

One protester's comment summed up the flimsiness of the fury. 'I didn't know who the DUP were, I had to Google them,' he said. From Googling a party to railing against it in the space of minutes: the modern mindset summed up.

Corbyn and the Jews

British Jews have made no secret of their united political opposition to Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party under his direction. Since Corbyn’s selection as its leader, the Labour party has been subjected to a relentless defamation campaign by the MSM and Jewish bodies. The Jewish anti Corbyn campaign rapidly devolved into a ruthless purge conducted by the Jewish Labour Movement and the Labour Friends of Israel. And then it didn’t take long before we saw some clear evidence that the assault against Corbyn was directed by Tel Aviv.

The reaction of many prominent Jewish voices and Jewish media outlets to Corbyn's recent electoral success leaves no room for doubt - we are witnessing an emerging clash between the Brits and Judea.

False flags backfire in Britain – voters repudiate lying establishment

Have false flags been so thoroughly exposed that they no longer work? That is the lesson of yesterday’s British elections, which delivered a stinging rebuke to incumbent PM Theresa May, and a high-octane boost to 9/11-truth-supporting anti-Zionist challenger Jeremy Corbyn.

For the second year in a row, Britain held critically-important elections in June. For the second year in a row, those elections were preceded by one or more false flags designed to terrorize voters and stampede them into the Establishment camp. And for the second year in a row, the voters rebelled.

How the dementia tax – a ‘nasty party’ policy – lost Theresa May her majority

Pundits and pollsters have spent the last year trying to explain what the Brexit vote meant. Was it right-wing or left-wing? Was it about immigration or sovereignty? Was it a bit racist? They’ll do the same for this election – trying to pinpoint where it all went so humiliatingly wrong for Theresa May.

But to me one answer, even so soon after shock result – and before we’ve been able fully to analyse the results – stands out by a mile: the dementia tax. There are five reasons, I’d argue, why it ruined Theresa May’s election campaign and may have been the key factor in destroying her parliamentary majority.

Brexit under threat: Macron set for landslide victory that may drastically alter EU exit

According to final opinion polls, the 39-year-old head of state's Republique En Marche! (REM) party could win between 395 and 425 seats in the National Assembly.

If the CEVIPOF-Le Monde figures prove correct, this would be far above the 289 needed to secure an absolute majority.

...

Mr Macron previously described the prospect of the UK leaving the European Union as "a crime", and insisted: "The EU will be united in Brexit negotiations."

But he also said he would rather see a so-called Hard Brexit – including UK leaving the European Single Market - rather than conceding advantages to the exiting state.

On the campaig trail he said: “If your Government decides to organise a Brexit, I will be pretty tough on it,” he told Channel 4 in February.

“We have to preserve the rest of the European Union and not to convey the message that you can decide to leave without any consequences.”

Theresa May’s plan for a loose alliance with the Democratic Unionists to prop up her government was thrown into confusion last night after the Northern Ireland party contradicted a No 10 announcement that a deal had been reached.

A Downing Street statement on Saturday said a “confidence and supply” agreement had been reached with the DUP and would be put to the cabinet on Monday. But the DUP last night put the brakes on that announcement, saying talks were continuing, not finalised.

Theresa May's Plan To Regulate The Internet Won't Stop Terrorism; It Might Make Things Worse

While May's desire for a strong response is easy to understand, her call for more expansive internet regulation and censorship is wrongheaded and will make it harder to win the war against violent extremism.

May didn't specify the details of her proposal, but to many observers it was clear that she's asking for sweeping new powers to compel tech companies to help spy on citizens and censor online content. Unfortunately, this isn't simply a knee-jerk response to horrible circumstances, but reflects a longstanding ambition of May's Conservative Party to impose draconian controls on cyberspace.

RUN, HIDE AND DENY IN LONDON Islamic terrorism has no religion even when it’s shouting, “This is for Islam.”

As Muslim terrorists rampaged around London, Met police debuted the new “Run, Hide and Tell” program. But instead some Londoners chose to stand and fight. They fought with pint glasses and barstools as the Muslim killers shouting, “This is for Allah” stabbed women in trendy eateries.

Some drivers tried to ram the killers. An unarmed police officer attacked the terrorists with a baton. An off-duty police officer tackled one of the Muslim terrorists. Both men were severely wounded.

Other unarmed police officers ran away.

Met counter-terrorism chief Mark Rowley sympathetically noted that, "If someone acts on instinct and perhaps decides to fight because they have no choice, we would never criticise them for that.”

It was kind of him not to criticize those Londoners who reacted with their base instincts and tried to fight the Muslim killers instead of running, hiding and telling, then reemerging for a vigil or a concert.

Britain is sleepwalking into joining EU army, warns top UK military commander

BRITAIN is sleepwalking into becoming part of an EU army and must take immediate measures to “extricate” itself from the bloc’s defence plans, one of the country’s most respected military commanders said today.

Major-General Julian Thompson told express.co.uk that ministers are quietly signing up to “vast military plans” devised by Brussels whilst the public gaze is largely on Brexit.

In a blistering intervention he said proposals put forward by eurocrats will “touch every part of the UK's defence policy” and warned the UK could become militarily tied to Brussels for year’s to come.

Jeremy Corbyn’s Near-Triumph Signals a Turning Point in British Politics

Theresa May is still prime minister (though she may not be for long).

Brexit negotiations hang in the balance

The 10 elected members of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) from Northern Ireland may have a disproportionate word in Brexit negotiations after the ruling Conservative Party lost its majority in Parliament Thursday.

May’s Conservative Party came just a few votes shy of an outright majority in the Parliament requiring them to work with a small party to secure a majority voting bloc. May indicated Friday she would attempt to form a minority government with the support of the DUP.

Coming soon: Martial Law UK

After the Manchester suicide bombing only two weeks ago I warned my readers that the repetition of terror attacks is breeding complacency within the public, in Europe most acutely. It is not uncommon now for attacks killing dozens to be forgotten within a week of the event.

After British terrorist attacks, Tory government invites terrorist group DUP to form government

The Democratic Unionist Party now look like the Tories preferred coalition partners. The DUP, which is the biggest Unionist (ie pro-UK) party in Northern Ireland, are often treated as though they are just the same as the other Unionist party they have essentially replaced – the Ulster Unionists. But while the UUP have a long running relationship with the Tories, and are a centre right party, the DUP are another thing entirely. The idea that they are near power in Westminster should worry us all. Here are some things you need to know.

A LONDON ATTACKER’S LINKS TO UK COVERT OPERATIONS IN SYRIA AND LIBYA

Evidence suggests that one of the London attackers, Rachid Redouane, was part of the broad UK-backed covert strategy to oust Syria’s Assad, following his similar role in Libya in 2011.

It is distinctly possible that Redouane was trained by Qatar special forces in Libya in 2011, as part of a broad UK-approved covert operation. Indeed, it is possible that this training was presided over by UK and US ‘liaison’ officers.

The analysis below is based on mainstream media sources, all in the public domain.

Evidence suggests that one London attacker, Rachid Redouane, was part of the broad UK-backed covert strategy to oust Syria’s Assad, following his similar role in Libya in 2011.

The Telegraph reports that London attacker Rachid Redouane fought in the 2011 British/NATO war against Qaddafi – as did Salman Abedi, the Manchester bomber – and joined a militia which went on to send jihadist fighters to Syria. In Libya, he is believed to have fought with the Liwa al Ummah unit.[1]

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

And the British government didn't expect there to be blowback, when all was said and done?!?

Apparently, the pathological inability to think a scenario all the way through to its logical conclusion, is not only a disease of American government, but also also infects the British government intensely as well.

Theresa May cannot be trusted with our national security. Her ineptitude was evident in her speech following the London Bridge attack, which came across as a campaign speech.

END OF HARD BREXIT: The letter written by DUP calling for May to maintain free movement

THERESA May’s much-needed alliance with Ireland’s Democratic Union Party (DUP) could put hard Brexit at risk as a shock letter reveals a major clash is in the pipeline.

While Brexiteers breathed a sigh of relief when Theresa May confirmed she would seek to partner up with the DUP, Express.co.uk has unearthed a shocking letter which shows the party's real motives and view on Brexit.

The letter written in August, penned by then First Minister of Northern Ireland Arlene Foster and her then deputy Martin McGuinness, makes numerous demands to maintain ties with the European Union (EU). They included freedom of movement rights and trade links.

The Sky Data poll shows as many as 62 percent of the youngest age bracket voted Labour, in an election which saw an estimated 70 percent turnout.

Nostalgia and British Politics

Three days before the British election, The Independent’s headline title read: “Majority of British voters agree with Corbyn's claim UK foreign policy increases the risk of terrorism”

So, seventy-five per cent of Brits realise that it is those immoral interventionist wars in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Libya that have contributed to the terror that now haunts their country.

But ‘interventionist wars’ is just a politically correct term for Israeli-driven global conflicts promoted by the worldwide Zionist lobby: AIPAC in the USA, CRIF in France and the LFI/CFI in Britain. So the next question is unavoidable. How many of these Brits, who obviously know the truth about Britain’s ‘interventionist wars’, also grasp who it is who triggers these genocidal conflicts?

Today’s British election results provides us with a clear answer.

He then reiterated “it’s pretty clear” Labour won the election.

Theresa May’s UK Election Gamble Backfires as Tories Lose Majority

Spectacularly punished by voters who took away her majority in Parliament, a politically wounded Theresa May sought to soldier on Friday as Britain’s prime minister, resisting pressure to resign after the failure of her high-stakes election gamble made the massive challenge of untangling Britain from the European Union only more complex and uncertain.

Having called an early election in hopes of getting an increased majority that could have strengthened her hand in Britain’s exit talks with the EU, May instead saw her majority evaporate completely – leaving her fortunes hanging by a thread and dark clouds over the Brexit negotiations just 10 days before they are due to start.

AS WE INCH TOWARD SOCIALISM, POVERTY BECOMES THE RULE, NOT THE EXCEPTION

In areas where socialist policies, such as high taxes and major wealth redistribution take place, poverty is taking a hold. As the United States inches closer to socialism in terms of policy, poverty is becoming more prevalent. The only thing that communism and socialism apply equally to everyone is poverty, and according to doctors in the UK, it’s becoming the rule, not the exception.

Let’s take a look at the socialist UK overseas. Nearly one in three children in the UK (a total of four million) live in poverty. It’s a statistic that perhaps many people find shocking, but they shouldn’t. They just don’t understand that the complete control of the UK economy by the government is hampering the ability of civilians to earn money. It’s easy for the government to earn money – they simply steal it. Of course, civilians cannot just take things from others.But it’s becoming a concern for doctors, and driving up the cost of healthcare causing, even more, government interference.

HOW DID A DEFENDER OF A 9/11 TERRORIST BECOME MAYOR OF LONDON?

Forget the media-hyped back and forth between President Donald Trump and London Mayor Sadiq Khan that has Trump rightfully condemning Khan for Khan’s “no big deal” approach to dealing with the repeated terrorist attacks in London. What continues to go largely unreported are Khan’s long-standing ties to Islamic extremists, including his defense of a 9/11 terrorist.

What is going on here? How is it a supporter of radical Islam becomes mayor of London and is being fast-tracked to be a future Prime Minister of Great Britain? And why is the Mainstream Media so clearly determined to cover up Khan’s shocking extremist past?

All of the above are true – including Khan’s defense of 9/11 terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Important questions, indeed.

If Khan is impotent, and/or unwilling, to defend the people of London, he should step down immediately, and a snap election needs to be held to elect someone who can, and will, protect all of London's citizens.

Three of my four family surnames are British; Darling, Yarbrough, and Rawson. So for me, any acts of violence perpetrated against my distant cousins in the UK, is a very personal issue.

Operation Temperer - U.K. Will Likely Institute Martial Law Measures Within A Year

After the Manchester suicide bombing only two weeks ago I warned my readers that the repetition of terror attacks is breeding complacency within the public, in Europe most acutely. It is not uncommon now for attacks killing dozens to be forgotten within a week of the event. The news feeds are awash in distraction, and of course, sometimes these events themselves act as distractions.
In a recent newscast of MSNBC's “Morning Joe”, BBC anchor Katty Kay stated:

“Europe is getting used to attacks like this, Mika. They have to, because we are never going to be able to totally wipe this out...”

NOTE - After finishing this article on Sunday, I find this quote from Theresa May on Tuesday:

“We should do even more to restrict the freedom and the movements of terrorist suspects when we have enough evidence to know they present a threat, but not enough evidence to prosecute them in full in court."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This... from the country which gave the world the Magna Carta?!?

My heart weeps, at this "slowly boiling the frog" approach by the British government, rather than fix the problems caused by British economic/geopolitical policies.

The pattern is painfully clear. Accuse a foreign government of doing something it is not doing; invade and regime change, if the current government is not to your liking; expropriate that country's resources, to which you have no moral right; insuring that those resources are only sold in specific currencies to specific countries; and yet fully expect that this disempowerment, and brokenness, on every level, will have no effect on the people from that country, many of whom have had to flee the violence.

Such actions, by Western governments, make people who have endured the consequences of these actions, a rich field for radicalisation, which wind up as "blow back" against the West, as we have seen in Paris, London, and Manchester.

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, I can never, ever condone violence of any sort; that being said, I can understand why there are times when it happens.

This is the reality no Western country dares address, or attempt to remedy.

There was a brilliant article yesterday in the English version of farsnews.com, an Iranian blog, to which I link frequently. I strongly encourage our readers to read the following, because it just nails the reality, with regard to the British government's reaction to the horror of Saturday, about what is really going on:

Another Reason For Brexodus? English Syphilis Cases Soar To Highest In 80 Years

It's not just bankers that are leaving the UK, broad-based Brexodus continues as EU citizens flee the apparently sinking-ship and now, courtesy of the latest report from Public Health England, they have another good reason to leave 'Ol Blighty - cases of syphilis have reached their highest level since 1949, new figures have shown.

After the Brexit referendum, more EU citizens are leaving Britain, while less Europeans are coming in. As the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics show, 2016 brought 84,000 less migrants, compared to the previous year. Statista's Fabian Moebus points out that the net migration of 248,000 people is the lowest number of yearly newcomers in over three years. Immigration from EU countries decreased by 43,000 people while emigration increased by 31,000, which makes Europeans the main factor behind the trend with a net change of minus 74,000.

How Britain aided Israel’s 1967 war

The Centurion was the main British battle tank for around two decades following the Second World War and Israel had already placed orders for it before Eshkol’s trip.

By July 1965, Britain supplied Israel with more than 180 such tanks. Another 150 were transported between that month and May 1967.

They were not the only weapons that Britain gave Israel. Just one week before Eshkol’s government made a surprise attack against Egypt on 5 June 1967, a ship brimming with machine guns, tank shells and armored vehicles sailed to present-day Israel from the English port of Felixstowe. It was among a series of secret weapons deliveries.
