Are we forgetting that the Mayor of London axed £65million, 10 fire stations, 14 fire engines and 552 firefighters from his fire service. When a consultation found 94% of those asked were against the cuts, he ignored it. He over-ruled opposition on the London Assembly, and when asked how he could possibly still call this reduction in fire cover an “improvement” he told his questioner to “get stuffed.
That Mayor is now Prime Minister. And flammable cladding is still on more than 2,000 tower blocks, hospitals, schools and homes, nationwide.
