Those who live in one-brick dwellings below that height will have to pay for the repair work through a loan program under compensation proposals announced by Communities Secretary Robert Jenrick.
The flat composition is so unfair
Almost four years after the Grenfell fire tragedy, the government has finally unveiled plans to remove the hazardous coatings.
It was an opportunity to help millions of people trapped in potentially dangerous and unsaleable properties without their being responsible.
But the compensation announced by the Secretary of Communities, Robert Jenrick, is insufficient and unfair.
Only tenants on blocks over 18 meters high will benefit from support.
Those who live in one-brick dwellings below this height will have to pay for the remediation work through a loan program.
A dangerous building is dangerous. Height or size shouldn’t be a deciding factor when it comes to receiving financial support.
If the victims of this scandal had purchased another defective item, the supplier would have to cover the cost of repairing the damage.
This should be the case with the coating.
Instead of prosecuting those responsible for this crisis, the government has created a tenant lottery penalizing the innocent.

No more confusion
If you’re planning a summer vacation, you might want to unpack your bags.
Just days ago, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said he hoped we could enjoy a great British summer.
Yesterday Transportation Secretary Grant Shapps said we may not be able to go on vacation at home or abroad. When asked which of them to believe, Boris Johnson gave no clear answer.
The situation with Covid can change quickly but that’s no excuse for mixed messages.
We have been here before for Christmas gatherings. People just want clarity, not to have their hopes raised and then dashed.
A paw excuse
The reason Downing Street cites as to why taxpayers are paying to take photos of Boris Johnson’s dog is just barking.
He claims the photographer “documents government affairs.” To be fair, Dilyn would probably make a better minister than some cabinet members. At least he’s trained at home.
