    Oh dear what a feck up - linky

    The architects of the Grenfell Tower refurbishment, completed in 2016, specified cladding that did not burn but that material was used only on the ground floor, where nobody in the block lived.

    Non-combustible concrete panels were fitted to the base of the building’s concrete columns, while plastic-filled panels, described by industry sources as about twice as cheap, were used for the upper floors of the building, planning documents reveal.

    Are plastic-filled panels illegal?

    No, just banned from multi storey buildings in the US, according to the US manufacturer. They are being sold for use on 1-2 floor buildings, where their combustibility is not that dangerous. Horses for courses.

    And Grenfell Tower was in the US?

    Perhaps the question should be why they were not made illegal in the UK? Maybe spending too much time on all that EU paperwork?

    I remember when toughened glass was illegal in all civilized countries apart from the UK. I think we were part of the EU then too.

    Banks not insist of tons of paperwork. It has not changed the morality one iota.

    Nothing to do with the EU at all. It is a complete failure of UK governments from Blair.

    We had stronger laws in some things before the EU got involved and made them part of a directive e.g. Health and Safety At Work Act 1974.
