    Grenfell Tower fire: Death toll increases to 79 and could rise further

    At this point they are pointing fingers at the outer cladding put on for insulation purposes.

    Here is a NYT article discussing the myth that the cladding had been outlawed... I can't find the article I read saturday explaining that it more than likely acted as an accelerant which let the fire crawl up the building rapidly but it is covered in this article.

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    I'm fairly disgusted by this, honestly, considering that a bunch of people seem to want to put this at May's doorstep. Unless she somehow installed the shitty wiring in the building herself, I fail to see how using this tragedy to pile onto an already massively unpopular political figure is anything but despicable.

    The Maybot is unpopular with a lot of people and angry people need someone to blame. I would be very surprised if the residents remember who their local councillor was at the time (or the current one) of the buildings regeneration* so they direct their anger at the figure they all know.

    Pretty much sums it up - as the saying has it "cock-ups have been made, people will be blamed". May is a convenient whipping girl for this.
