I've got nothing but respect and admiration for all of these people.
Doctors nurses fire police ambulance etc etc.
That though isnt being questioned in this case.
We are just about to see millions taken out of the police budget if this ER mob sue for damages over wrongful arrest.
Some will find this correct but personally it sucks.
Point is the police have been found to have made a mistake and been pulled up.
LFB rightly or wrongly being pulled up made mistakes on that night.

What mistakes did the LFB make in regard to their set protocols?
I know for a fact that firefighters arriving at the scene knew that it was a hopeless job but still risked their lives to try and save others.
Saying otherwise is pc bollox.

BTW just to erase any doubt, it's not often you will hear an ambulance man, past or present, fighting the corner for "the water fairies" but despite inter service rivalry we are on the same side when we get s*** thrown by civvies who have no comprehension of the job.
Having mates in all branches of the armed forces i know that holds true there too.
Tho rarely admitted publicly.

Yep all spot on.

Look, uncomfortable truth is that when you are in a situation like that you need to use your common sense.

What Mogg said was accurate but obviously the disingenuous are suggesting that this is him criticising victims when it isn't.

It's recognising that when the sh1t hits the fan that it's you....the sh1t and the fan and you need to make the decisions....It's not fair, it's horrible but it's reality. Often people don't want to hear it.

Never forget that for many different reasons 'experts' are often wrong.

experts are often wrong, and so are opinionated people with no first hand access to the facts, for example I'd rather trust an ex-army judge spending years gathering evidence against one of the most powerful institutions in the country - with the use of lethal force at their disposal - to a HOL poster, I hope that doesn't make me a snob

I tend to side with the people putting their lives on the line , day in, day out,just trying to save lives.
Undermining that in any way makes you a c***.

This whole tragedy is going to continue to be painful for a lot of people for a long time to come.

For me this is about the regulations and their abuse.

Response teams are beyond reproach.

It's good that despite different views every body here is being respectful seeing as we're not involved etc, but I had a nice chat with an old chap at work, a tory and a Christian (though his views are very discreetly held) about the BBC doc on the fall out after the inquiry into the police after Stephen Lawrence's murder - while I was perturbed by some of the police behaviour he was more sympathetic to them on the basis that it's so easy to sling mud from the stands, try getting in the arena etc but what disturbs me about the Grenfell inquiry is the order of events - it's no accident that the fire service gets scrutinised first and the politicians later - there should be no 'sides' in this as some are suggesting ('depending which side you are on') - people have made money out of creating a hazard, it's not a matter of being wise after the event, this tragedy was inevitable in the literal not the literary sense, and those who tweaked the regulations so they could sell their product and those that took the back handers need to be exposed, prosecuted and things put in place to make a repeat infinitely less likely.

Why does there have to be blame, why not just a lesson learnt from a terrible tragedy and action taken to avoid a repeat.

 


Let's see SP and the board trying to line up for a piss in the AW toilets at half time before peddling the new stand. We're the Arthur over here and the facilities are a disgrace

That would be the sane stance, but there ends up being so much emotion and hurt that it is unfortunately leveraged by this political party or that. Everything turns into a lurid campaign strategy and it makes me think that maybe proportional representation at least has something going for it. With that at least your view is your view then, regardless of location, strategy, turnout.
