An interesting report on the London Fire Brigade. Which insists that it is not underfunded, it’s just that the management is more than a bit shit.
Of course, we all know that’s true of all of the British bureaucracies but it’s nice to see it admitted even the once:
London fire brigade one of the worst in UK, inspectors say
The London fire brigade (LFB) is one of the worst in the country, according to inspectors who found that two and a half years after the Grenfell Tower disaster, incident commanders remain inadequately trained, the service is wasting resources and it is failing to learn from its mistakes.
Note the wasting resources bit.
It is well resourced
That is, they’re pissing your and my money away and killing people in the process. When do we get to be medieval on the politicians and bureaucrats that have been doing this?
