It was first suggested to me 30 years ago that the freeze dried imported Chinese ingredients delivered to Chinese takeaways could contain unhealthy
additives. It's a way of war that's easily blanked out because it's uncomfortable to contemplate.
A few years ago I went to my MP to get a woman and child rehoused. The house they were living in had been built by saboteurs the year before the S
became widely known. The housing authority don't want the other residents to know about the sabotage done to
an unknown number of houses so they denied it all and left her and the child in a house that was literally falling down. They got rehoused and the
house was demolished.
During the whole saga only two of the builders privately admitted to me that this was a known problem. One told me some houses in the area built by
POW's a few years later have similar problems. This is a problem that's known about in the building trade and kept very, very quiet.
If you live in a rendered house that was built around the time of the second world war you may find peace of mind, or not, by drilling a vertical line
of holes through the render. Measure the depth of the hole when you hit brick. If the holes are all the same depth, and the surface of the render is
vertical, you have a vertical brick wall. You may find the courses are very carefully laid so the face of the wall curves in, then a course jutting
out a fraction, then the face of the wall curving out till it is outside the vertical. Then back in and the same again. Seen from the side, a zig zag.
Except you can't see it because the render has been very carefully used to give a vertical face.
The mortar will have changed from the common weak mix of the time at the base of the wall, to a mix so weak in can easily be crushed with slight
pressure. I had to wrap the samples in tissue paper to take them to my MP and his jaw dropped open when he saw how fragile it was.
Low down between the windows where the most weight is, half bricks and gaps will have been used to create weak points in the wall. Last time a builder
came to work on that house he happily erected his ladder then went up and did a hammer test. His face turned white and he carefully climbed back down
the ladder, put it back on his van, and phoned the boss. The next we heard the contractors said none of their workers would ever work on that house
again because it was far too dangerous.
All this was and is denied by just about everyone involved.
Sabotage happens and people blank it out because it's uncomfortable to think about.
