In the wake of the ghastly conflagration that engulfed a recently renovated 24-story apartment tower in London, the world is waking up to the dire threat created by energy-saving green zealots.
It turns out that nobody much worried about the fire hazard involved when flammable materials were used to add an outer “skin” of cladding to the building, creating heat insulation thanks to the air pocket between the new cladding and the old exterior wall, but also providing an ideal space for fire to race up the building. As happened.
In a scene out of Life of Brian, everyone immediately interprets events in terms of his own hobbyhorse – I saw that it was an Ethiopian illegal, some saw it as May hiding from people, my Labour apparatchik sees it as the goodness of St Jezza and why everyone in the whole world loves him and wants him to be PM.
Actually, it was the Greens.
