Grenfell Tower will forever stand as a rebuke to the right
^ this is well worth a read.
I thought it was unaffordable and pointless green energy initiatives and the “progressive” outfits that peddle them that were the cause of this.
“The Right”, left to itself, never would have placed immigrants in that situation.

Austerity forced on the poor, disabled, voiceless, vulnerable, unemployed, ignored and the often forgot about - regardless of colour, ethnicity, religion, sex, or employment status - is finally being seen for what it actually is, 7 years and countless lives too late.
Let alone austerity on the emergency services, NHS, local councils, schools, libraries, parks, armed forces, intelligence services.
It’ll take years to recover from - even if it were started to be reversed today - but hopefully people will remember how austerity failed - and the true cost of it’s impact, both on people and services, for years to come…
In other news…
‘Tory Government’s benefit cap is unlawful and causes ‘real misery for no good purpose’, High Court rules’…
Lefties really have a problem with the concept of U-N-A-F-F-O-R-D-A-B-L-E and W-O-R-S-E T-H-A-N U-S-E-L-E-S-S LEFTY initiatives.
There would be no need for austerity without that nonsense.
It was - and still is affordable - someone didn’t read the Labour manifesto with costings before spouting uninformed rubbish, and also neglects many of these ‘worse than useless lefty initiatives’ ideas were created just after WW2 where Britain had no money and has done fine - in the main - up till the last 7 years.
However, it is the Tories who chose austerity as a mask to get in their ideological agenda in 2010 - for which they are now paying the price - and others have paid with their lives (and I doubt you read their manifesto either).
Though I see you neglected to mention it being forced on the poor, disabled, voiceless, vulnerable, unemployed, ignored and the often forgot about - regardless of colour, ethnicity, religion, sex, or employment status - and also affecting the emergency services, NHS, local councils, schools, libraries, parks, armed forces, intelligence services etc - whilst the rich and corporates received tax breaks, and uncollected UK tax comes in at £34b annum (on 2012/13 figures - https://www.ft.com/content/48d5a518-552a-11e4-b616-00144feab7de?mhq5j=e3) - figures which will have likely escalated since due to cuts to the HMRC itself since.
Try harder my capitalising troll/wum.
