Interview with Insp. Jack Rowlands

Interview with Insp. Jack Rowlands

The road of crime can be long and dangerous – and much of the time, it’s difficult to improve on your situation.

When young offenders reach the age of 18, all of the Metropolitan Police’s “young offenders” programmes and relevant rehabilitation programmes are no longer accessible to them – instead they are offered adult programmes which may not be suitable to their situation.

It is believed that, as a result of this, currently, 30% of young offenders in England and Wales reoffend.

At Brixton Police Station, they are trying to change this.

Divert is a programme run by Insp. Jack Rowlands and is designed to help young people find training, work and work experience after they’ve been arrested and divert them from a dangerous path which too many have walked before.

Read this BBC News article with a clip about Divert.

James Gilmore interviewed Insp. Jack Rowlands about the programme and how the criminal justice system treats young offenders.

James Gilmore says: Fight Hate With Love

James Gilmore says: Fight Hate With Love

It’s a pretty hectic time to be living on planet earth right now.

With the rise in popularity of Donald Trump in the US Presidential Elections, the Brexit, an increased anti-immigrant feeling, the rise of ISIS and the rise of the far-right across Europe – it’s a scary place and a scary time.

But, the best thing that anybody can do right now is to promote positivity.

Most of us aren’t able to influence the news, or world affairs. We can’t negotiate with world leaders or decide the outcome of elections (although most of us would like to think that we could). We aren’t zoologists who are experts on gorillas in zoos or marketers who can interpret economic trends. We aren’t political leaders who can negotiate treaties and deals either. But, in a way, that’s a good thing.

What the world needs more of are ordinary, every day people promoting positivity. That’s the only way that you can be sure that the hate doesn’t win – don’t let it consume you.

If you start to hate, then they have won. Fight hate with love.

Listen to this clip from my show on Friday 24th June 2016, following the result of the EU Referendum, talking about how we can’t let hate win.

Stonewall on London Pride

Last year, James Gilmore and Roman Armstrong marched at London Pride with Stonewall to get a real insight into the event and what it must be like for the thousands of people in the LGBT+ community who take part in the parade every year.

Stonewall is the UK’s leading LGBT charity organisation. Their mission is to let all LGBT people know that they’re not alone and they support communities and provide essential services to those facing conflict or difficulty whilst trying to express their sexuality.


Stonewall have a presence at all 22 Pride events across Britain this Summer – but James Gilmore interviewed them to find out a little bit more about Pride in London this year.
