What can be done now ?

In the last 10 years what many deem to be the 'war on drugs' can be seen to have objectively failed in this country. With amounts of drugs being sold and consumed in the UK at an all time high, what can be done differently  now to help reduse crime and the amount of deaths due to drugs? The model for how drugs have been dealt with in the past , this being arresting people taking and selling scheduled substances, failling miserably, maybe its time for a change. 

Can we just speak up ?

Sorry for the late post - it took me a month to get my head around a topic that I would have liked to write about. Since last year, a lot has been said about women and what we have to go through in our every day life: harassment, sexism, disparity, unfair treatment and so on. There are countless ways in which our quality of life is affected negatively by our sex. Just have a look around, in the streets, workplaces and even just by our health.

Sometimes the fight for press freedom starts in a Dartford car park

Today is World Press Freedom Day.
Pity nobody told Dartford Borough Council Press Officer Lewis Kirnon.
As the clock struck midnight to usher in the day on which we honour those who fight for the right to bear witness to democracy, Mr Kirnon was ensuring precisely the opposite happened – by refusing two of our students entry to the borough’s election count.

Covering a count is something of a rite of passage for CfJ students. Through the years, hundreds of them have done that familiar all-night stint at general elections and local elections across the county. They have provided footage for ITV, the BBC and KMTV, as well as copy for newspapers and web sites across the county. They are well trained in the dos and don’ts, both technically and editorially. They know what to film and what not to film. They understand the law and Ofcom’s regulations inside out.
So it was with a degree of excitement that third year undergrad Jessica Sharp and her second year colleague Chloe Rose set off to cover the Dartford count as KMTV interns yesterday night.
