Holy Smoke -


Recommended Posts

Fires in iconic buildings like Notre Dame, seem occur whenever renovation works are being carried out (EG York Minster and Windsor Castle),   the increased fire loading with scaffolding etc and risk of accidents, provide the kindle for a much larger incident, if left unattended.   So, why don't they employ fire security personel and CCTV, to spot a fire in the early stages, so that it can be extinguished before it damages the main building  ?

Money obs and the fact that nobody ever thinks that a fire will break out or at least that the chance of such an occurrence are so low that winning the lottery three weeks on te run with the same numbers is a dead cert.

Did see that Quasimodo managed to get out and is currently lodging at a nearby public house the ring o'bells, the bells, THE BELLLS!!!  🔔🔔🔔

Seems accounts are saying an alarm did sound, a search (by whom, we don't yet know) revealed nothing; maybe the incense was masking the smell of smoke !   Then half an hour later, when an inferno developed, visible all around Paris, someone called the Fire Brigade.  Doesn't sound right to me, but no doubt an Inquiry will reveal all.

Seems the French Yellow Vests,  have been wound up even more, by the donation pledges of the rich.  While Macron hits them with fuel taxes,  he reduces wealth taxes on the rich.   So, as ever, it's the rich who get the pleasure and the poor who get the pain - ain't it all a bloody shame.
