I agree. The media seem to wheel out these tame "experts" to make the point they wish to make. Last night it was suggested that hot cable would ignite plasterboard. Last time I put a blow-lamp to plasterboard resulted in scorching of the paper, but certainly not fire.

Yep the expert said: Sam Gluck, technical manager at electrical fire consultants Tower Electrical Fire and Safety, said this approach had "planted a bomb in the system".
He explained: "If it overheats, it will ignite anything that touches it. If it's against a plasterboard wall that will ignite.
