Labour Use Fictional Dead Children to Scaremonger Over Cuts

This is surely the most distasteful Lambeth Labour taxpayer-funded scaremongering yet, mocking up a fake newspaper splash about mythical dead children killed in a school fire, presumably the implication being what will happen if you don’t vote for them. A new low.

      Do not blame these people. We live under a similar threat where 3 schools and a number of large care homes will be without adequate fire cover.

      The crime is to think that their lives are considered so cheap.

        value is in the head.
        increase its value.
        heart is cheap. give it away.
        own the house that is the head.
        the housy head always wins.
        “your head your rules”
        if I am in your head then your head, my rules.

        Accountants have the ability to see bankruptcy coming. Bankruptcy that will ruin the lives of many more millions of people. But people like you prefer to stick their heads in the sand, vote to tax more and borrow more, to maintain what you see as your “basic human rights” and leave future generations with a bleak and desolate future.

        O, and whereabouts is this particular area with it’s own designated fire service for “3 schools and a number of large care homes”. And in what way are you qualified to decide on “adequate fire cover”?

          These children were from a Hard Working Family, but burning down their School was The Right Thing To Do.

          After all, it was the imaginary kids that burnt down the imaginary school in the firstplace. I imagine.

          I wish to attend their funeral as an act of respect.

          Are they being cremated?

        How these things work says:

        Yes, it has been reported that someone or other heard someone else say that they had overheard someone talking about an overheard conversation in which it was relayed that someone thought that they had heard it somewhere that something was written on a wall which might have been a wall at the school and it might have said EDL or something else, . Anyway a senior officer at the Met has now publicly joined in these chinese whispers.

          How do they know these ‘cuts’ will result in more fires? How do they know schools will be the site of the fires?

          Cannot be linkied to arson -crime is falling according to the police.

      I’m complaining that everywhere there are people there must be a fire station dedicated to the safety of those people. No need to consider that the age of the fire has diminished dramatically since the rise of natural gas central heating.

      We must have more public servants doing nothing asnd vast expense to the public with no proof needed that they add any value and they must all vote Labour.

      This is our socialist future. Eventually only farmer Giles will have a job in the private sector and he will be obliged to feed all 80 million of us, including the 20million new Labour voters that Ed Milliband intends to let in whenever he can next get his hands on power.

      But old schools are generally low, brick or stone built and designed for continuous movement. The occupants are generally alert and monitored.

      To be got by fire in a school should be nearly impossible.

      But note that the new school builds have wooden structures for access and are generally higher, and are more secure designs, fixed windows and so provide significantly less escape routes. They were built with an assumption of a service level. Take that service level away and the building becomes inadequate.

      However, a care home, or sheltered housing is a different matter.

    There have been many many death because of the cuts.
