London Blogger gagged after warning about Grenfell Tower fire hazards

Thursday 14 June, 2017

reverend-describes-how-grenfell-tower-fire-conjured-images-9-11Grenfell Tower in West London on Wednesday morning, the block had already been ablaze for several hours (source: ibtimes.co.uk)

Yesterday morning Britain awoke to saturation coverage on TV and radio of a massive fire in a recently refurbished residential block in North Kensington, London. For once there was no suspicion of terrorist involvement in this story,  even though the blaze was no ordinary domestic fire. It was also obvious that many people would have died in the tragedy although early reports could only confirm six fatalities.

While nobody that I saw blamed ‘immigrants’ or ‘Muslims’ the left wing hate mobs were on the case, trying to blame the evil conservatives, with one blogger even suggesting that former Conservative finance minister George Osborne was somehow responsible because he owns a town house nearby.

Reports continued to reveal more throughout the day and by lunchtime today a story more sinister than terrorism was unfolding. Though the actual cause of the fire was still unknown and it was being reported that resident s (of the tower and similar ones nearby) along with independent experts had been warning of safety issues for a considerable period but their concerns had been ignored.
It now appears there has been a spate of similar fires in tower blocks around the world, the common factor was that in all cases the buildings had been refurbished to improve energy efficiency, but some of the materials used, were not fit for purpose, insulated cladding being the main problem.

A blogger who warned the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea council of the dangers lurking in Grenfell Tower was threatened by local officials for writing about problems in the building.

Home to over 600 people, Grenfell Tower, in the Lancaster West estate, west London, was engulfed in flames in the early hours of Wednesday morning. The true scale of the tragedy is only gradually becoming clear. Questions are being asked about how, in a modern building, a fire could spread so quickly.

As early as 2013, blogger Francis O’Connor, a member of the Grenfell Action Group (GAG), urged councillors and landlord Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organization (KCTMO) to address the fire safety risks that new works on the building would cause.

GAG had several times tried to warn the council and the landlord that the building of a school and gym next to the estate would restrict emergency services’ access, including firefighting vehicles.

But a leaked letter reveals that officials at the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea tried to silence the campaigners, sending a lawyer to threaten O’Connor.

“I am instructed that you previously posted blogs that have in general been critical of everything that takes place at Lancaster West in relation to the Kensington Academy Leisure Centre and investment on the estate,” solicitor Vimal Sarna wrote to O’Connor in July 2013.

It then instructs the group to delete the blog – an order the group defied.

In 2016, an article on the blog chillingly predicts that only a tragedy would bring serious attention to the tower’s problems.

“It is a truly terrifying thought but the Grenfell Action Group firmly believe that only a catastrophic event will expose the ineptitude and incompetence of our landlord, the KCTMO, and bring an end to the dangerous living conditions and neglect of health and safety legislation that they inflict upon their tenants and leaseholders,” the post reads.

“It is our conviction that a serious fire in a tower block or similar high density residential property is the most likely reason that those who wield power at the KCTMO will be found out and brought to justice!”

But the scandal seems to reach beyond local council remit, as the Mirror reports that former Housing Minister Brandon Lewis “sat on” information about the several fire risks in buildings such as Grenfell Tower.

According to the newspaper, Lewis did not take action on safety irregularities on tower blocks over 30 meters tall because it could “discourage building.” Instead he shrugged off suggestions that sprinklers should be installed in the block. Other ministers are believed to have also known about the damning evidence.

This major tragedy looks as if it may turn into a major scandal, exposing totally unsuspected levels of corruption in the public sector. This blog will report all developments.

BoJo Was Correct – The EU Was A Nazi Idea

And until recently everything was going according to plan.

The biggest kerfuffle in the EU referedum campaign this week came when the University dumbed Down and brain dead, Labour voting sheeple got their knickers in a twist over comments Boris Johnson made about the E U having originally been a Nazi idea. Boris was  accused of misrepresenting or exaggerating the comparison between the EU and the German Nazi’s plan for a union of Europe.

The pro-Brexit former Mayor has stated that both Hitler and Napoleon failed at unifying Europe and that the EU was “an attempt to do this by different methods”, namely without weapons this time!

Donald Tusk, the European Union Council President, said that the former Mayor of London “had crossed all boundaries” by making the comparison.

Lord Heseltine a Pro-Remain campaigner labelled Mr Johnson’s comments “preposterous” & “obscene”.

And all the globalist and authority worshipping screechers (including Gayvid Cameroink and his bum chum Barack Obama joined in con gusto – yeah we can be multicultural)

Unfortunately Boris Johnson was absolutely correct and far from exaggerating he seems to have somewhat understated his case. To date however, we have not heard one apologetic voice from the Remain campaign acknowledge this important point. But then their entire campaign is built on lies and misrepresentations (oh and the usual hate and envy from the left wing factions.

The Nazi origin of the European Union is 100% documented and easily verifiable. The linked page in this paragraph provides  a brief overview of what the Nazi regime envisaged for the continent of Europe after World War 2.

The European Community, a 1940 book by Nazi Economics Minister and war criminal Walther Funk wrote about the needs of creating a “Centralized European Union” and “European Economic Area’s” he argued, “There must be a readiness to subordinate one’s own interests in certain cases to those of [the EC].” (A shorter summary can be found HERE)

Nazi academic Heinrich Hunke wrote, “Classic national economy is dead…community of fate which is the European economy…fate and extent of European co-operation depends on a new unity economic plan”.

Fellow Nazi Gustav Koenig observed, “We have a real European Community task before us…I am convinced that this Community effort will last beyond the end of the war.”

Other top Nazis who called for the creation of a pan-European federal economic superstate dominated by Germany and through which Germany would dominate Europe if (when) the war was lost, include Ribbentrop, Quisling and Seyss-Inquart, who spoke of “The new Europe of solidarity and co-operation among all of its people… will find…rapidly increasing prosperity once national economic boundaries are removed.”

In 1940, Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels ordered the creation of the “large-scale economic unification of Europe,” believing that “in fifty years’ time [people would] no longer think in terms of countries.”

Just 53 years later, the European Union in its current form was established.

It’s no surprise that what these top Nazis proposed is almost identical to what the EU later become.

Boris was also right to say that the EU is the very bureaucratic, centralized, dictatorial European federal superstate similar to the one Hitler and other top Nazis had planned to implement after World War 2.

Cameron Begged Obama ‘On Bended Knee’ To Help Bully Britons Into Staying In EU

During his long stint as Minister For Work And Pensions, Ian Duncan Smith or IDS as he is know because it sounds like an affliction of the lower digestive tract became the most hated politician in Britain. Now he might also be the politician David Cameron hates most.

Europhile might see this as a Shakeaspearean betrayal. But has IBS IDS really done us, and future generations of Briton’s a great favour by revealing David Cameron is willing to betray his country, and has probably already done so, so desperate are the dark forces of globalism to keep Britain in the EU and thus keep the global government project on the rails.

Today it has been revealed by IDS that Cameron begged the globalist and warmonger in chief, the crack addicted arse merchant who is President of The United States Of Perpetual War to intervene in the referendum campaign and help bully ?British voters into keeping us in the authoritarian, socially disintegrating, financially insolvent United States of Europe. Today Breitbart London reported:

 The revelation comes as eight former U.S. Treasury Secretaries write an open letter claiming the UK is too poor and inward looking to succeed outside of the EU, and one day before Mr. Obama is due to visit Britain to make similarly fantastical warnings.

“Let’s cut all the rubbish out of the way, he’s doing it because the Prime Minister has gone on bended knee to him and said, ‘come over and help us bully the British people into making a decision. Everyone tells them and lectures them and it would be great if you could do it’”, Mr. Duncan Smith told the Telegraph.

The former Tory leader, who supports Brexit, resigned as Work and Pensions minister in March ostensibly to protest cuts to welfare, but perfectly timing his departure to heap pressure on the Tory government as the referendum campaign began.

He also argued that the U.S. was hypocritical and would never “pool” its sovereignty with other nations by joining a supranational institution like the EU.

So Cameron has enlisted Obama, whom we are told is Britain’s greatest friend in international politics, but if we look at the evidence we see is our greatest enemy in the world, to help sell us out to The New World Order.

While we have despised the former Work And Pensions Minister will future generations say of him:

This was the noblest Tory of them all;
All the conspirators save only he
Did that they did in envy of Cameron;
He, only, in a general honest thought
And common good to all, made one of them.
His life was gentle, and the elements
So mixed in him that Nature might stand up
And say to all the world, ‘This was a man!’ (paraphrased from Julius Caesar, act 5 scence 5)

£1 Billion Migrant Bill:Remain Campaign Rattled As Welfare Spending Soars

david-cameron-eu-deal-644868

David Cameron with Europe’s three Presidents (which should tell you all you need to know about how bloated EU bureaucracy is; ‘Gaulieter’ Martin Schultz, who says public opinion is irrelevant; Donald Tusk who says the European Council with veto and deal that benefits Britain; and bottom, Jean Claude Drunkard, President of the EU commission who has brandy for breakfast

The UK welfare system is expected to pay out more than £1 billion to unemployed European Union (EU) migrants, government data has revealed. The figure does not include spending on the estimated 1 million plus non-EU illegal immigrants in the country. The findings will come as a major blow for the campaign led by David Cameron and supported by most of the Labour party (and even Jeremy Corbyn a longtime opponent of the EU is supporting ‘In’ although in a very lukewarm way) to keep Britain in the EU. Supporters of the ‘Brexit’ campaigns have argued that they demonstrate what anti – EU campaigners have wanted for a long time, that there is an urgent need to reclaim control of our own borders.

This news will be particularly hurtful to the IN campaign because one of their main (though entirely dishonest) arguments is that being in the EU brings our economy net benefits.

In 2013/14, British taxpayers forked out a whopping £886million for unemployed EU migrants living in the UK, and a further £814 million for EU migrants in work, according to a government paper. Ironically, it was released in support of a dossier entitled The Best of Both Worlds, which aims to make the government’s case for Britain remaining within the EU.

In the foreword to the report, the Prime Minister David Cameron wrote: “Our special status gives us the best of both worlds. We will be in the parts of Europe that work for us – influencing the decisions that affect us, in the driving seat of the world’s biggest market and with the ability to take action to keep our people safe.”

But the government was not keen to release the report, and Mr Cameron’s own MPs have ridiculed him. Philip Davies, MP for Shipley told The Express: “It’s amazing we’ve got some figures at last, but one has to question how reliable they are. He’s right; with the supposedly politically neutral civil service having backed IN (bigger bureaucratic empires, bigger jollies for civil servants) the figure could well be deliberately understated, and the issue has been misreported by mainstream media and the ultra globalist BBC.

“It’s quite clear that immigration has gone up recently so the figures must be well over a billion pounds now, even by the Government’s own estimates.

“At last we are laying bare the huge cost of being a member of the EU. The changes the Prime Minister has negotiated are trifling – the only way to restrict benefits to EU migrants is to leave the EU.”

The eye-watering figures, and the failure to renegotiate a better deal have led to a number of pro-Brexit politicians warning that the only way to take control of immigration from the EU, and the welfare payments that come with it, is to leave the EU. It is also the only way to limit the flow of illegal immigrants into the country after they have illegally entered the EU through countries that cannot or choose not to enforce border controls.

Miliband Loses His Balls

Best election moment since Portillo went down in ’97

But as Oscar Wilde might have said, to lose one party leader is unfortunate, to lose two looks like carelessness, but to lose three is hostile action.

I was quite taken with this extract from a blog reposted on Zero Hedge. Not too sure the words ‘conservative landslide’ in the title are appropriate, it was the SNP landslide that gave Cameron a very small majority, but the rest is good reading.

Saxo Bank CEO Lars Seier Christensen reacts to the Conservative landslide victory in the UK.

When you, like me, are used to a proportional representation system, it feels bizarre that the third largest party hardly gains a seat, but still, Nigel Farage has had a lot of beneficial influence on Britain’s EU policy.

Hopefully, Brussels also gets the message but I doubt it. The EU never rolls anything back. It continues to amass more and more control in all areas.

The bureaucracy in Brussels has no self-criticism. No regrets. No matter how much and how often it fails. It just continues the roll out of its powers, and it will continue unabated, until someone says enough is enough. Until someone says stop.

The election outcome in Britain is our one chance to say stop!

YEAH!

Left and Right Unite – Against British Interests

There is something sadly wrong with an election campaign when two weeks before the big day there is no news worth blogging. Oh well OK, I haven’t looked very hard because I’ve been busy most of the day moving my money offshore as a hedge against the inevitable wealth grab if a Labour / Scottish Nazi Party coalition gain power. But even so there is little news, except for this item from South Thanet:

Labour / Tory Love In

Labour and Conservative candidates in Thanet South have joined forces to demand that UKIP not be allowed to ?break our great love? (are they both gay then?) This unprecedented cuddle up follows claims by activists to have been attacked by a “UKIP-supporting National Front gang”. Note that strange wording, not a National Front gang, not a UKIP gang but a UKIP supporting National Front gang.

The point both Labour and Conservatives seem to have missed is that in a democracy National Front members (if they really were NF members and not UAF / ANL scum on a faslse flag mission), they could have been Millwall fans,) are free to support who they like, UKIP have no control over who supports them.

The Thanet branch of trade union-backed Stand Up To UKIP (SUTU), claim they had just packed up their street stall on Saturday when they were attacked by the ?far right?. Canvassers from the Conservatives and Labour also claimed to have been targeted although they did not specify what happened. They also worded their allegations carefully to avoid implying UKIP members were involved in the alleged attacks.

The two major parties were quick to react. Will Scobie and Craig Mackinlay appeared to back claims the National Front group was supportive of UKIP. Their comments were carefully worded to avoid directly accusing UKIP of being involved but they were clear that people should not vote for Nigel Farage as a result of the incidents.

Funny though, we didn’t hear a squeak out of either main party candidate when the neo Nazi and Neo Fascist thugs of Hope Not Hate (a group so stupid they got their name the wrong way round) launched one of their hate attacks at UKIP supporters attending a Nigel Farage campaign event. Take a look:

In this election you can vote for UKIP or you can vote for hypocrisy, hate, violence, thuggery and bullying, the political techniques favoured by Labour and The Conservatives. (You could vote Lib Dem of course but they’ll only sell out.)

Will The Government Run Out Of Money For Pensions While Still Fighting America’s Wars

The Centre for Policy Studies (CPS) has warned that cash reserves set aside to fund state pension payments are set to run out as soon as next year.

In the report published on Friday, CPS claimed it had found a “serious flaw” in the government accounts (not surprising seeing as they are compiled by members of the public service unions), and because of this the government will find itself short of cash for pensions sometime in 2015.

The authors added that the underfunding will force the Treasury to increase taxes in order to ensure pension payouts continue.

Michael Johnson, speaking for CPS warned that the current state pension level is “unsustainable,” adding the pension will be “watered down to a basic subsistence” in the near future if the government fails to take urgent action.

The research also found that people under the age of 45 would have to wait longer to qualify for their state pension while those under the age of 35 should expect pension payments to be scrapped altogether by the time they retire. People currently in work should expect large tax increases to fund pensions, Johnson said.

Or perhaps our fuckwith leaders could simply stop joining in all America’s wars and flying bombing missions at £1,000,000 a bang. We could leave the EU and save £40 million A DAY, that would fund a few pensions.

And perhaps, to cite a couple of examples of how the incompetence of morons employed in the public services and protected from consequences by the too-powerful and entirely politically motivated public service unions, civil service purchasing officers could learn that rather than paying £3000 per bog standard, network ready PC they can buy them retail for £300 each (and that’s expensive) or shelling out £1500 for an NHS Wheechair when a very adequate vehicle can be had for £99.

NHS standard whhelchair – nasty, heavy, clunky and expensive.

               Lightweight wheelchair (uses aluminium tubing instead of steel), fit for purpose and cheap (£99)

Problem: Government wastes shitloads of money and can’t pay its bills.
Solution: Abolish public service unions that reward incompetence, sack incomptent public service purchasing officers, hire over 45s with losts of experience in the private sector to make sure taxpayers are getting value for money. Simples.
