Glenfell – the cover-up
For a brief moment it seemed like there would, on this occasion, be no cover-up.
Sadly, that turns out to be an illusion. The terms of reference of the public inquiry are limited to investigating how the fire started and how it spread so quickly.
This means that the apparent fact that the emergency services were telling people to stay in their flats will not be investigated. Given that people who took the initiative and evacuated, even from the upper floors, survived it seems clear that had an immediate evacuation been ordered then potentially everyone could have been saved. 80 deaths could have been avoided.
It is perhaps no surprise that this matter will not be included in the public inquiry.
The cover-up is already firmly in place.
