The contractor responsible for fire alarms at Grenfell Tower is being investigated by fraud squad police, several arrests have already been made.
The firm – Lakehouse – is headed by businessman Bob Holt.
Holt began his business career working for former Tory Party treasurer and infamous tax exile Lord Michael Ashcroft – who had to resign from the House of Lords after it was revealed he wasn’t resident in the UK.
Holt claims Ashcroft was a “tremendous” person who taught him the “right and wrong way to do things” in business:
Hmm. So a firm headed by a businessman who says he learnt all he knew about business practices from a former treasurer and deputy chair of the Tory Party is under investigation for fraud connected with the Grenfell fire tragedy?
No surprises there then.
