The saga of delayed and failed rail electrification suggests our politicians and officials are more comfortable with talking than with deliberation• Ian Jack is a Guardian columnist. The line from Gospel Oak to Barking used to be one of London’s more obscure railways, looping 14 miles through the northern and eastern suburbs and never penetrating the capital’s centre. A railway enthusiast could have told you that the boat trains from Tilbury to St Pancras used to use it – for many visitors and migrants from the British empire, including MK Gandhi and some of the passengers from the Empire Windrush, the line offered a first view of England’s back gardens.feedback

The most recent Ian Jack’s quote is: “The white van that collided with worshippers this week crashed in a road once known as the ‘worst’ in north London. Whadcoat Street, which hardly merits the latter word, is a strange little appendage to one of the busiest highways in north London. A cul-de-sac that strikes north from Seven Sisters Road roughly opposite the old Astoria cinema, later the Rainbow, where Jimi Hendrix burned his first guitar, it can’t be more than 50 metres long. All this week, flowers and messages of love and solidarity have decorated one short side of it, because it was here that Makram Ali died and 11 other people were injured, two seriously, after a white van mounted the Seven Sisters Road pavement soon after midnight on Monday, ploughing into a group of worshippers who were returning from Ramadan prayers before it made a sharp left turn into the side street.”.
