The issue at present is the baying mob looking for a single person to blame. The Police being shouted at to 'arrest someone' as if that's going to assist anything now. Nothing can take away from the tragedy and it is my view (as a building manager by trade) that heads will indeed roll but without a proper enquiry which forensically inspects all earlier modifications and refits at the property the ultimate culprits risk escaping Scott free whilst 'easy' targets such as Councilors, Council Employees etc. are getting the brunt of the anger. Some of the language being used does nothing to endear the survivors to the general public in my view, which is a shame.....


You talk a lot of sense there Jon.

It's going to be hard to make individual arrests under H&S law. Corporate Homicide will apply to the Council or the ALMO generally, not to persons within those bodies.


On the other hand, an individual's name is at the bottom of the fire risk assessment.
