If you answered the building dept., you are correct..... they are held responsible as they didn't detect the faulty wiring and they are the trained professionals that had that last look.
There is no such thing as a “Natural Born Dual-Citizen“.

I think this is much ado about nothing.
The government was supposed to conduct monthly inspections. They conducted 88 inspections over a 104 month period. I very much doubt that this explosion is attributable to the fact that they missed 16 inspections over an 8 year period.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
Not doing inspections as agreed upon and expected is 'getting in the way'. Developing a contingency plan and then not having the equipment available when the worst happens is 'getting in the way'.
The Government Departments doing or supposed to have been doing these inspections were remiss.
This does not mean we should rid ourselves of these Departments.
It does mean that there should be root and branch investigations why these Departments have not done what they were charged to do.
Certainly the Head of such departments should be dismissed with the proviso that they are prohibited from further Government employment.
Only by making such Department heads directly culpable for the failure (in their Departments or their own respective tasks) can we the Tax paying Public begin to hope, we may get what our Messianic Governments tell us we are receiving, honest effective Governance.
But folks do not hold your breath!
