One thing is worse than tragedy: an avoidable tragedy. Worse still: a cover-up.
What a mess our United Kingdom is in.
Public confidence at an all time low with voters chose their lesser evil. Few believe austerity has been a success. The NHS is at its knees.
And now Grenfell happens. Few believe the death toll being reported. Assumptions rise, remnants of trust crumble.
So many questions. And therein lies the problem. Any catastrophy has more than one cause. How could we let so many accumulate for this to happen? How many more are on the horizon with our infrastructure apparently so critically weak?
Does Grenfell symbolise the UK in its current state? We can’t let it. But that doesn’t warrant a cover-up.
