Momentum and the future of the Labour party | Letters
Helicoptering in candidates imposed from Labour’s centre is hopefully at an end, writes Rosie Brocklehurst; Sue Shanks is appalled that Labour activists are targeting Caroline Lucas’s seat; plus letters from Anita Pollack and Mike AllottIt is a strangely conspiratorial analysis that says Momentum has secured victory in the selection battle for the top marginal seat of Hastings and Rye (Momentum candidates to contest top Labour targets, 20 March). Momentum is not a party but a movement created to keep Jeremy Corbyn as leader. Since 2015, Labour membership here has swollen from 400 to 2,000, one of the largest and most vibrant in the south-east. No one can say that Labour’s selection processes are not democratic now, certainly here. Helicoptering in candidates imposed from

North Kensington

North Kensington lies either side of Ladbroke Grove, W10.

North Kensington was rural until the 19th century when it was developed as an suburb with quite large homes. By the 1880s, too many houses had been built for the upper-middle class towards whom the area was aimed. Large houses were divided into low cost flats which often degenerated into slums, as documented in the photographs of Roger Mayne.

During the 1980s, the area started to be gentrified although areas in the north west of the district at Ladbroke Grove and Westbourne Park remain deprived and run down to this day.

Waves of immigrants have arrived for at least a century including, but certainly not limited to, the Spanish, the Irish, the Jews, the West Indians, the Portuguese, the Moroccans and many from the Horn of Africa and Eastern Europe. This constant renewal of the population makes the area one of the most cosmopolitan in London.

The Notting Hill carnival was first staged in 1964 as a way for the local Afro-Caribbean communities to celebrate their own cultures and traditions. After some rough times in the 1970s and 1980s when it became associated with social protest, violence and huge controversy over policing tactics, this is now Europe’s largest carnival/festival event and a major event in the London calendar. It is staged every August over the Bank holiday weekend.

John Rocque Map of London (1762) FREE DOWNLOAD
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 central London at a reduced level of detail compared with his 1745-6 map.
