Some people never miss the opportunity for a bit of political point scoring, pedaling their little agendas no matter the circumstances, pretty pathetic individuals really

Absolutely as the people who come out with those remarks are utterly crass and stupid to say the least as this goes well above just blaming one political colour rather then the others as councils of all political colours are at fault over a number of years but suffice to say none of them will be owning up anytime soon sadly to why we got in this mess to start with..

This obsession you have with Tory V Labour really isn't healthy.

Yeah, especially for those who deny it despite the facts but education is always a good thing isn't it. Wouldn't want anyone to be unnecessarily ignorant...

Re: Huge fire at West London tower block

Nobody was ever starting out by saying Labour were responsible in any way. Any comments aimed at Labour are REPLIES pointing out the FALSEHOODS of attacking the Conservatives. There is a difference between responding to an attack, ie defending, and an outright false and biased attack.

Not if it's a 24 hour clock, or if it's an electronic clock that's broken...

Re: Huge fire at West London tower block

There's now been a similar fire at a residential tower block in Dubai called Torch Tower (the second in two years).

Interestingly, everyone got out unhurt, so they must be doing something differently.

I'm not sure if this block had the problematic cladding on it.

Also, some former residents say that they are being trolled on social media with remarks such as "you are in it for a free ride".
