The Guardian view on the Grenfell inquiry: not enough trust | Editorial
Sir Martin Moore-Bick wants to keep his investigation mainly technical. But he wants another one to look at social housing, and he’s rightIt was not only the fire that destroyed confidence in the local council among the people who lived in Grenfell Tower; nor was it just the council’s chaotic response in the days afterwards, nor its apparent reluctance to take responsibility or express regret for the tragedy that unfolded in the early hours of 14 June. It was the culmination of long years of being marginalised and discriminated against by most representatives of established authority. In that context, the task facing Sir Martin Moore-Bick as he begins work on the inquiry is much deeper than the challenge of overcoming the image of a white man with a double-barrelled name and an old-fashioned manner.The terms of reference are now set. Sir Martin’s focus will be fundamentally technical, and he wants a preliminary report ready by Easter next year. His critics say this is not enough. They argue that the building and fire regulations and the way that they were applied in the case of the Grenfell refurbishment are the product of a particular political and economic environment, and that without investigating that he will not reach the truth. But although regulations, sprinkler systems and fire doors are only part of the story, the part they play is important. Continue reading...

Kingsbury

Kingsbury station was opened on 10 December 1932 as part of the Stanmore branch of the Metropolitan Railway and served by that company’s electric trains.

After the formation of London Transport in 1933 this branch became part of the Metropolitan line and was later transferred to the Bakerloo line in 1939 then to the Jubilee line in 1979. The design style is similar to that of other Metropolitan Railway buildings of the same period rather than to the concrete and glass style used at the same time by the LER group.

In common with other nearby Metropolitan Railway stations (e.g. Harrow-on-the-Hill, Neasden, Queensbury) there is an element of fiction in the station name; the area is properly within the eastern extent of Kenton (Kingsbury Road at this point was originally part of the eastern end of Kenton Lane) and Kingsbury proper is actually closer to Neasden station.

Although now only served by deep-level tube trains, the section of line serving the station is built to surface gauge, and trains to that larger LU loading gauge occasionally pass through.

John Rocque Map of Wembley, Kingsbury, Willesden and Harlesden (1762)
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers an area from Harrow in the northwest to Harlesden in the southeast.
