Let's go 'all thumbs' on this one.

While I'm on the fumble theme, another project nightmare. But worse, ye gods: this one killed people!

It wasn't crippled by 'dodgy' installers. It was crippled by rushed policy, lack of industry consultation, imagining that a group of politicians and their child advisors could just jump into a business, no evident risk management...they didn't even appear to know that there were risks. It was hubris writ large!

And this in a country with a sophisticated construction industry with architects, building professionals (the white collar guys I mean) and engineers like grass seeds: everywhere! And, I might add, a public service that, at least in the states, includes highly industry-aware staff that design industry engagement schemes day in and day out, and successfully.
