You are the only one scoring points, by using every snippet you can find to bash conservatives on every issue while by and large giving the left a free pass. You are a case study for myopic left wing fanaticism that finds fault in everything to do with capitalism, but conveniently ignores the fact it's capitalism that has driven all economic growth in history and that in every country where socialism has taken hold, poverty and misery follows (your poster child Chavez and his moron successor Maduro in Venezuela the best example).
The underlying issue and root cause here is gross incompetence, which is an unfortunate feature of politicians and governments at all levels, regardless of ideology. The sad reality is that regardless of how much money is spent by governments, the outcome is largely incompetence. The reason for this is there no accountability in government or in most of the public service at management level. That is the defining difference between private and public sector, in the private sector (again by and large) competent people get promoted to management and generally if they are not doing the job they get removed. In government the opposite is the case, the incompetents are promoted and never held to account or fired.
This is not to bash the hard working lower levels of public service, as they do the best job they can working for incompetents. The classic example is the money spent on the HSE in Ireland is sufficient to have a top quality service, and yet the opposite is true in terms of delivery. In my dealings with the HSE in Ireland, the rank and file such as nurses, admin staff etc. are wonderful. From top to bottom the department of health however has to be populated by utter morons, such is the inefficiency and downright mind numbing stupidity. The same is largely true for most departments in public service across western democracies, but seems particularly acute in the UK and Ireland.
Whoever made the decision and approved the decision (assuming its the case) to use non fire retardant cladding didn't make it based on political allegiance, they made it based on incompetence. The incremental money involved proves that point. If you were being honest you would call it what it is, incompetence. Instead you want to fight the tired old class war, it's the fault of the rich for their hatred of the poor. More government is always the solution for the socialist, even though the existing government is a bloated shambles at all levels.
