Question to Salford Labour

Standard

Due to the fact private companies are in control of our Social Housing which they gladly excepted at low cost prices, we surely will not fall foul of replacing the cladding  at the expense of other services? answers on a post card.

Government will not pay to replace cladding,i wonder does that count for Northern Ireland?

Councils face bills running to hundreds of millions of pounds to make tower blocks safe after the Government said it would not guarantee extra money to pay for vital work to prevent a repeat of the Grenfell disaster. More ball kicking from the Tories. Salford could struggle having to keep the cash flowing at it’s white elephant rugby club and pay for  recladding. 

Sad to see Labour using the dead to score political points

Is democracy working? It didn’t work if you were a family living on the 20th floor of Grenfell Tower,” Mr McDonnell said. “Those families, those individuals – 79 so far and there will be more – were murdered by political decisions that were taken over recent decades.
“The decision not to build homes and to view housing as only for financial speculation rather than for meeting a basic human need made by politicians over decades murdered those families. The decision to close fire stations and to cut 10,000 firefighters and then to freeze their pay for over a decade contributed to those deaths inevitably and they were political decisions.”

Reading that statement makes me  feel sorry for the fire-fighters who risked their lives,  they never complained over pay,they where there in eight minutes.how fast did Labour want them there?me i would wait till we identified all the aspects of this tragedy and for those who share the guilt let them pay. sad using the dead to score points.
