[100 word news] – Ken Livingstone blames Blair and Thatcher for the Grenfell Tower tragedy

Ken Livingstone has said the root causes of the Grenfell tower fire can be traced back to policies implemented during the Thatcher and Blair eras.

‘Apparently, two years before I got elected to Parliament, the Thatcher government reduced the strength of the regulations. Up until then it was illegal to put any cladding on that was combustible’.

‘She reduced that regulation’.

‘Shamefully, Blair carried on with that policy of ‘regulations damage our business’, and the simple fact is that those regulations are key to saving people’s lives’.

‘If you water them down, then dodgy firms will think ‘we can make a bit more money here’, and they do’.

  1. Yet another politician who is a expert in Building regulations and fire standards. You have to some kind of idiot if you even think Mr Livingston is a expert in anything apart from lizards and South American democracy.
