This chapter considers how marketisation, privatisation and deregulation have combined in the UK to produce both a de-democratisation and the erosion of social protection. It does so through an exploration of the enforcement of food safety, pollution control, trading standards and workers’ health and safety law, and, via a focus upon the atrocity at Grenfell Tower in 2017, on fire safety. In particular, I examine enforcement and regulatory policy at Local Authority level under the guise of the Better Regulation initiative and, then, conditions of austerity. These contexts have produced the opportunities for reframed – that is, specifically, privatised and marketised – forms of regulation which prioritise the interests of business over social protection.
