  1. So, who is ultimately responsible for the cause of the fire?, xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    Alot of unanswered questions… The fire report will answer a lot of unanswered questions when it is finally produced.

    I worked in the house where this man died, but was sacked for speaking out about whether people are suitable to live there. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx As for the issues with the residents, well they are not addressed as should be. These houses are a money making scheme, and for the record I am not bitter about losing my job just telling the truth.

    wow lost’s of x’s there through paddy’s comment that was not there 5 mins ago and also mine lol. Why does the truth always get covered up 😦

  4. I would love to discuss this further with you Donna, in greater detail, to get an insight on how the owner(s) and mental health service operate and use such properties.
    Obviously, it would be confidential



  5. The truth hurts… And always will Donna.
    I will be contacting the fire service to see whether their report has been submitted… Then will try freedom of info to obtain a summary


  6. Can we discuss this article further?

  7. I wonder whether the owners are monitoring this post or we have said something to upset someone….

    you would be somewhat surprised, its legal but a rip off . Housing benefit claims are horrendous. but going back to the fire I know the man who died and god bless him I hope he did not suffer 😦 I have no problem about speaking out about how it all works

  9. take it further then. people with mental health problems need a lot of help.its well know that these propertys are used as big money making machines just like most of care homes for the elderly as well

  10. Hi Donna, please contact me @

    @anonymous, not always so easy to do when people work hand in hand so to speak. But I agree the mentally ill are totally failed
