Anyway, anyone fancy going halves on starting a cladding removal company?

Cladding removal and installation.

It will be interesting to see who gets the contract for all the replacement cladding.

EDIT: Police saying there's unlikely to be an official death toll by the end of the year.

I doubt there will ever be an accurate death toll

I can think of a few likely names. None are cheap.

120+ tests on cladding to date, 100% failure rate.

That's almost impressive.

Yup. You see what I mean about this being allowed by someone.  You don't just get this failure rate through chance.

Which makes the big question: "where was it first used?"

Again, very limited list of responsible people to sift through. With this failure rate I'm leaning more to building control.

Ehm, so what is happening with the 120+ buildings with the fire hazard, are people being put into temporary accomidation or is anything else being done?

They're hoping a fire doesn't happen while they contract firms to rip it out.

In some cases, moving residents would be unfeasible, because some of the buildings with cladding aren't just flats, but residential nursing homes and similar.  But only in some.

Tender docs show cladding spec changed to save 300k. 149 tests done, still 100% failure.

I've managed to convince my company to carry out tests on our properties out of our own pockets, rather than wait for the council.  No word on when it is starting, but I won't be surprised when they all fail.

I think we may as well scrap the tests at this point and replace all the cladding cross country.

That may be the cheaper option in the long run.

However, there probably isn't any money for that.  Too busy buying votes from the DUP, there's nothing left in the pot.

Sell the DUP? Their shares must have gone through the roof. Wouldn't surprise me if you could recoup 3 or 4 billion right now.

That is going to backfire badly in the long run.
