Tower Block Fire in Kensington

How can this happen here?

Apart from probable contractor damage to fire breaks it appears the external cladding was made from wood and/or plastic.
It has happened in Dubai and everyone knows how and why, so how can the same errors be repeated in our nanny state as recently as 2016?

"London fire: Six killed as Grenfell Tower engulfed"

"A huge fire has engulfed a tower block in west London, having broken out in the early hours of Wednesday."
