There is rightly a lot of heat in the media over the Grenfell Tower fire. Here are two consecutive daily newscasts where a civil engineer, and others, explain what goes on behind the scenes with the awarding of building contracts, the testing and qualifying of building materials, and the political system.

Cheap cladding, not fire resistant and banned here as well as the states apparently.

Cheapest tender and loads of towers in Camden done with the same stuff. Corporate manslaughter ?

Didn't the fire start from a fridge in one of the flats? We've been hearing a lot about fridges/tumble dryers catching fire in recent times, shouldn't the 'experts' be looking at this aspect as there are obviously some fire risk issues with some brands of appliances.

My bet is a Beko fridge, they have a history.
