People are already calling for the Judge in charge of the inquiry to stand down. This is going to be like the child sex abuse scandal again.

Not sure how constructive that really is. It reads like a question of empathy rather than competence.

Aye, dismissing him because he doesn't look like he'll listen to them is daft at this stage. You have to give him a chance. Unless this is being undermined so it never sees the light of day (like the aforementioned child abuse inquiry).

Heard on the Beeb, it's because most of the cases he has presided over, he has come down on the side of the government.

If a single high profile public inquiry had resulted in timely or even concise results I'm sure the spinup of this one wouldn't be so embattled. The trouble is such processes have become a byword for the evaporation of responsibility and endless deferment of publication until those potentially in the firing line are least affected. I'm not surprised at all that those involved are asking for a broader scope. It's not because they're ignorant or emotional, it's because they've seen the precursors.

What does that even mean in this context though?

Using my psychic prediction powers I suspect the report will state

Cladding choice whilst driven by cost was based on industry certification
Overall the incident is unprecedented in the western world and not predictable
Sprinklers won't have helped in this circumstance, but recommended generally from now on
Over crowding of London social housing made everything far worse
Councils should have pre-arranged post disaster plans in place

except it will cost 30m...

That's just not true. There's noise around two cases, one involving relocation of a social housing tenant and one involving deportation of a foreign criminal with children in the UK. It's just hyperbole to say he came down on the side of the government in most of his (thousands?) of cases.

Wasn't that a "clarification" of a much broader earlier promise?

I'm struggling to find it but the original statement made no mention of "temporary", that was a later addition.

Fairly brutal report on newsnight around the materials in use. Some fingers firmly pointed at the repeal of the local building act as a big factor in the approach.

Grounds for corporate mansalughter charges against both the council and the TMO. Let's see if it extends to contractors.

Corporate Manslaughter charge seems a bit pointless since nobody can be arrested or charged with it, although I guess a massive fine might make others sort their houses out. Hopefully though, if there is negligence by specific individuals then they get them on gross negligence manslaughter.

The Torch Tower in Dubai is on fire again (it caught fire in 2015). Looks like cladding (again).

Utterly damning on the face of it. A forty year backstep in safety and over seventy dead just so that it looked a bit nicer to people who live in eyeshot. Fuck everyone who worked on it, fuck the entire borough in fact.
