EU FIRE SAFETY RULES WERE NOT EFFECTIVE IN PROTECTING THE GRENFELL TOWER

PRESUMABLY EU FIRE SAFETY RULES WERE IN FORCE AT THE TIME CLADDING WAS FITTED TO THE GRENFELL TOWER.  EU FIRE SAFETY RULES WERE THUS NOT EFFECTIVE IN PROTECTING THE GRENFELL TOWER - ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF EU BUREAUCRACY.  JUST ONE GOOD REASON TO WALK AWAY FROM THE EU.

IT IS GOING TO COST A FORTUNE TO PUT RIGHT.  CAMDEN COUNCIL'S ESTIMATE OF TWO TO FOUR WEEKS TO REPLACE THE CLADDING ON JUST FIVE TOWER BLOCKS IS WAY TOO LOW.

A US COMPANY ARCONIC SUPPLIED THE CLADDING USED ON THE GRENFELL TOWER.  HOW MANY MORE TOWER BLOCKS WERE FITTED WITH THE SAME PRODUCT?
