Back To School

Was asked to got to a school by a man who was a guest on my radio show many times & I used to give quite a tough time to. Dal Babu is a former chief superintendent in the Metropolitan Police.  With some of the challenging stories that have emerged, it usually made for quite a robust conversation. He is now retired and spends part of his retirement helping to advise and encourage children from underrepresented backgrounds. His links have allowed him to persuade some high profile people to come and engage with the children.

He warned me that they would be challenging and they were.  My aim was to answer any questions as honestly as possible, whilst leaving them with lots of positivity.  I hope I succeeded, they certainly taught me a lot.

Dal said this about me after the event:

” Eddie was cut from the same cloth as our children and that’s why they connected with him. We heard many stories about his upbringing and he discussed with the children that those kids with the best trainers at school ,were not the coolest people in their 30s”
