Grenfell Tower fire: Cladding used
on block is ILLEGAL in UK,
Philip Hammond says

Daily Express [UK], by Lizzie Stromme

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 6/18/2017 9:12:19 AM

PHILIP HAMMOND has confirmed the cladding used on Grenfell Tower is banned in the UK after being grilled over the Government’s response to the deadly blaze. The Chancellor faced tough questions on the BBC’s Andrew Marr show as the public turned on Theresa May, calling for the PM to resign. Marr asked the Tory Cabinet minister: “The cladding that was used around this tower which went up the rocket is banned across most European countries and banned in the United States. “If the inquiry says it’s got to be banned in this country and it’s got to be torn off every single

There is a terrific fireproofing material out there. Very effective and very inexpensive.

It´s called asbestos - - and it works like a charm. About as well as DDT works on mosquitos.

Someone here wondered why people were angry at the mayor of Lundon about this fire.

My comment was "codes and codes compliance are a primary responsibility of city government, and the mayor is responsible for this."

Yes. Now we see. Was the cladding legal? Were the inspectors doing their jobs? Should the cladding be legal, if it was? Are the Ondon fire codes massively deficient? Are the inspectors incompetent or corrupt?

Aside from the flammability of the building, we still don´t know the source of the fire and maybe never will.

Early reports suggested it was a burning fridge, but my tinfoil hat and pictures of the demonstrators give me pause.

Australians are getting older, turning their their backs on religion and welcoming more migrants from Asia than from Europe. Results of the 2016 Census, disrupted by cyber attacks, paint a picture of a changing Australia. The number of Australians older than 65 has grown by nearly 665,000 since the 2011 Census, data released on Tuesday shows. In the past five years 1.3 million migrants have arrived and for the first time in our history the majority of people born overseas are now from Asia, not Europe. Two-thirds of the country´s population are born in Australia. England and New Zealand are still the most common

A U.S. warship struck by a container vessel in Japanese waters failed to respond to warning signals or take evasive action before a collision that killed seven of its crew, according to a report of the incident by the Philippine cargo ship´s captain. Multiple U.S. and Japanese investigations are under way into how the guided missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald and the much larger ACX Crystal container ship collided in clear weather south of Tokyo Bay in the early hours of June 17. In the first detailed account from one of those directly involved, the cargo ship´s captain said the ACX Crystal had

To understand what can and ought to be done, it is first important to understand the nature of the BDS movement. Earlier this month Norway, Denmark and Switzerland did something surprising. Norway announced that it was demanding the return of its money from the Palestinian Human Rights and Humanitarian Law Secretariat, for the latter’s funding of a Palestinian women’s group that built a youth center near Nablus named for PLO mass murderer Dalal Mughrabi. Denmark followed, announcing it was cutting off all funding to the group. And last week, the Swiss parliament passed a resolution directing the government to amend Swiss law

Is it the end of Google´s ´big brother´ policy? The software giant announced that it will stop scanning users´ private e-mail addresses, as it has done until now to tailor personalized advertisements to anyone on the Internet. Google Cloud senior vice president Diane Greene said that Google´s free Gmail email service will continue to offer personalized advertisements, but said that it would switch to the less-intrusive method used in its corporate G Suite Gmail, which it sells to businesses.

Japan has broadcast a television warning urging citizens to lie on the ground or seek shelter in the event of North Korea launching a nuclear attack. The government advice also tells people to stay away from windows, protect their heads if they are indoors and to hide behind solid objects if an attack is imminent. Instructions triggered by Japan´s satellite-based J-Alert public warning system will be sent out through speakers installed across the country, the 30-second clip confirms. The broadcast comes amid heightened tensions between the West and North Korea under dictator Kim Jong-un. According to Kyodo News, the advice is being aired

A GLOBAL financial crash is brewing as China and other emerging markets are binging on debt, the world´s central bank watchdog has warned. A number of economies in developing countries look worryingly similar to the US and UK before the devastating crash hit in 2007, with soaring house prices, slow economic growth, and a large credit bubble. The stark warning from the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) said low interest rates are helping to keep debt at manageable levels. But the end of the current cycle of global growth now risks ending in a crash with a vengeance, warned Claudio Borio, head

ISIS commanders have been killed after one of the group´s suicide bombers blew himself up at a meeting following the terrorists´ collapse in Mosul. The jihadi detonated explosives during a meeting in Qaim District in the west of the Anbar Province and the blast killed a number of leaders as well as himself. It comes as Islamic State lost more ground in their last major stronghold in Iraq with the terror group´s numbers depleted and confined to an area of about a square kilometre in the Old City. Lieutenant Colonel Salam al-Obeidi said that he believes only ´a few hundred Daesh fighters´,

President Donald Trump broke a long standing White House tradition of hosting a dinner to celebrate Ramadan, a Muslim religious holiday. Hosting an Iftar dinner to mark the end of Ramadan fasting is a tradition that started in the Clinton years and was continued by Presidents Bush and Obama.

Thomas Jefferson was the first president noted in history to host Itfar in 1805 with an invitation to the dinner stating ´Dinner will be on the table precisely at sun-set – ´ the invitation read. ´The favour

The Washington firm that commissioned the dirty dossier on President Trump is stonewalling congressional investigators. In a piece for the New York Post, conservative author Paul Sperry writes that the firm, Fusion GPS, which was started by three former Wall Street Journal reporters, is not cooperating with Congress in order to cover up an allegiance to the Democratic party. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is spearheading an investigation into the dossier, and wants to know the identities of the people who paid Fusion to dig up dirt on Trump. Congressional sources told Sperry that Fusion GPS´s founders

A feminist magazine is calling on all white women to “do their part to prevent white supremacy” and abort their white babies. This is sick beyond words. The feminist Medusa Magazine reported: In a progressive society, it is often white families that stand in the way of equality and justice. Systemic white supremacy depends, first and foremost, on the white family unit. When white conquerors forcefully penetrated the indigenous, egalitarian homeland of the Native peoples of America, they were quick to replicate their white societies, initiating their parasitism by establishing white plantations, headed by white fathers, submissive white mothers, and,

An angry couple assaulted a Georgia fast food owner and her daughter outside a restaurant over a chicken and fries order — leaving the two women battered and authorities in disbelief. “I have a severely broken nose that requires surgery,” Quik Chik owner Jeanette Norris told the Daily News Sunday. “My daughter is scared. She was hit on her right side and has a black eye.” Norris was violently attacked at around 3 p.m. Thursday at the restaurant in Baxley after a couple complained about an order — prompting an argument that led suspect, Latasha Smith, to slap and punch

I’ve been talking about the importance of protecting against voting-machine hacks since 2002. And now, finally, people are starting to take me seriously. The move to paperless voting started in response to the Florida “hanging chad” fiasco in the 2000 presidential election. Some people (like me) thought this was a mistake, but such concerns were often dismissed. Now, apparently, you can’t be paranoid enough. As Politico’s Bob King noted, while 10 years ago critics of paperless voting were called paranoid, now both parties are worried. It remains true that there is no actual evidence that a single vote was changed by hackers

Writing on Twitter Sunday, the All in the Family star mentioned a Fox News report about the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 election. “When Fox says that DT colluding with the enemy is not a crime, the fight to save Democracy is now an all out war.

At last we know why Chicago’s homicide level is so out of control: Gangs, not police control the streets. The gangs know it; the police know it; and now, thanks to DNAinfo.com/Chicago, we know it. A week ago, Chicago street gangs held a huge party in a park, with a thousand people attending, some brandishing firearms, terrifying neighbors for hours. The police sent 25 squad cars, yet were outnumbered and unable to really do anything. (snip)Obviously, there is no political will to take back control of the streets. So everyone gets the message that gangs rule. No wonder the murder

The Supreme Court said Monday that most of President Trump’s travel ban executive order can go into effect, delivering the first major victory to the new administration on perhaps his most controversial policy to date. Justices said the lower court rulings that blocked Mr. Trump’s policy were far too broad, and said the president can begin to enforce his ban against foreigners who don’t already have some ties to the U.S. That means the president can begin denying visas to visitors from six countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — who don’t already have family in the U.S., or some other prior connection such as
