How many more Fires will it take, before Lewisham Labour back people before profits call for a total fire safety review across all Council owned estates and buildings?
Both Deptford and New Cross fire stations are at constant risk of closure, without the wonderful work these guys and girls do, lifes could be lost.
Save our Fire service.
Vote People before Profit.

The disgraced leader of the Fire Authority Brian Coleman, with the blessing of Boris effectively sold the fire brigade off. The headquarters were sold along with the repair workshops and all the fire engines. London Fire Brigade (LFB) own nothing of their equipment, air sets or uniform. It belonged to Asset Co, who went bust, the next company went bust too, as has the owner of that company. The biggest 'share holder' of the LFB equipment is the Royal Bank of Scotland. At present it is all held by Babcok Engineering. Only because otherwise the company goes bust and adminsitrators seize assests like uniform, fire engines etc. It is a disgrace and a waste of money. The change to Babcocks has cost US to pay for them to do it because the Tories engage their business friends time and time again
