Charles White - Government ministers ‘congratulated themselves’ for cutting fire regulations


Conservative ministers were proud of slashing fire regulations, just months ahead of the Grenfell Tower block blaze.


Regulations are bad! Dereg, dereg, and dereg, then businesses thrive and all boats rise, then everyone is happier.

In February this year, ministers posted on a government website details of their ‘anti-red tape’ agenda on new-build properties.
In a separate report fire safety inspections, the Conservatives said, had been reduced for some companies from six hours to just 45 minutes.
The move, titled Cutting Red Tape, was part of the Tory plans to abolish a ‘health and safety’ culture that they claimed was hurting money-making businesses.

Maybe an Art Degree person would think that was the problem...

It's not the problem, it's a symptom...
