  • - It's cool for the structure of this.

  • And I wanna get London back to a hundred percent attendance,

  • that's my goal.

  • All children back to school,

  • which is gonna help London get back to work.

  • This is what we need,

  • we need people to get comfortable with it,

  • we need to show leadership,

  • we need to show the science that backs this up,

  • and we need to make the parents really feel

  • that this is the best decision, and I know it is.

  • And that's the decision I made as a parent this week,

  • my teenage daughter also went back to school this week,

  • and she's loving it, you know?

  • She really needed that structure,

  • she really needed that social ability,

  • like I said, it's gonna be hard to get Cayden not

  • to go to school on Saturday,

  • because he loves it so much.

  • Again, the parent structure is back,

  • the teachers are working, you know,

  • the teachers there are so happy to be there.

  • You can just tell, they were like, "Wow,

  • "we didn't even know if we'd ever be back to school."

  • Everyone's bringing their A game, they're functioning,

  • they're getting paid now, they're gonna spend money,

  • they're coming back into London,

  • this is all part of the process.

  • And again, I cannot emphasise this enough,

  • you have to get London back to work.

  • Which means the workers have to come back into this city.

  • And I read a statistic that 42% of the income generated

  • in London comes from the workers of London,

  • not from a tourist, not from a company spending money here,

  • it comes from people being in the city limits

  • and spending their money.

  • And that only happens when we get these workers back.

  • So let's get these top 25 global banks and law firms.

  • Let's get 50% of the staff back by the end of the month.

  • Yeah, that gives you three weeks.

  • JP Morgan is gonna do it even sooner, why can't we do it?

  • There would be a massive spike in the economy here.

  • Next, I want to drop all tube and bus fares down to zero,

  • and completely put a moratorium on the congestion charge

  • until the end of the year.

  • Let's really get this economy back.

  • Let's see Q4 numbers that are back at least within five

  • or 10% of the numbers last year.

  • This means we're back on this recovery.

  • And finally, we've got to get a hundred percent

  • of our kids back in school.

  • That is the lifeblood of the family structure,

  • of the community structure,

  • it also is gonna kickstart our GDP in a massive way.

  • So those are my thoughts, I would love to get your thoughts.

  • And again, I don't claim to know the solutions,

  • I'm not a politician,

  • but I am an informed, intelligent adult,

  • and I'm tired of people telling me things,

  • and trying to run my city in a way that's irresponsible,

  • it's ill-informed,

  • and quite frankly, it's doing massive damage.

  • Not only to people's economic health,

  • to their mental health, to our children's health.

  • And I'm just not gonna put up with it anymore.

  • So I wanna have these conversations,

  • I'm really looking for ideas,

  • I'm looking to collaborate with the right individuals

  • and bring in the experts that can find these solutions,

  • and I wanna present these ideas to all of you out there

  • and get your feedback as well, and let's send our leaders

  • these messages of what needs to change.

  • This is so important.

  • So again, leave your comments below and tell me,

  • what is your city doing?

  • Maybe you have an idea that you're doing it better

  • in your city, and we can learn from you.

  • What are you struggling with, as an entrepreneur?

  • As a business owner?

  • What are you struggling with in transport?

  • What are you struggling with as parent?

  • I wanna have these conversations with you.

  • And I'm gonna be having more of these conversations

  • over the next four weeks.

  • I'm gonna go out and I'm gonna speak to community leaders,

  • I'm gonna speak with more business owners.

  • From the black cab drivers, to the shop owners,

  • to even companies in the city,

  • where I used to work at,

  • the JP Morgans and the Goldman Sachs

  • and the NatWest of the world.

  • I wanna speak with our tourism chiefs.

  • I wanna speak with our health workers.

  • I wanna speak with our first responders

  • and the fire department and the police department.

  • I wanna speak with any group out there,

  • that can help me find the solution

  • that wants to show leadership.

  • Again, I can't emphasise this enough,

  • we need to be led by example.

  • We need people on the frontline showing us what to do,

  • not telling us what to do.

  • And again, not blaming people.

  • I don't have a lot of time

  • for victims here at "London Real",

  • I don't in the academy, and I don't for our politicians.

  • I don't need another politics complaining

  • about why they can't take action.

  • I need them to take action, show some leadership,

  • and show us the way.

  • And look, I love London.

  • I'm gonna be here for a long time.

  • I love it so much,

  • I named my show "London Real" after London,

  • and it's time to have these conversations,

  • and I honestly think that if we pool our resources,

  • and again, find some science-based, fact-driven ways

  • to determine policies, we can bounce out of this recession.

  • We can bounce out of this pandemic.

  • We can find real solutions and be a global leader

  • in what we were doing.

  • I honestly believe that if we put our heads to this

  • for the next six months,

  • we could be leading and showing places like Los Angeles

  • and Tokyo and New York City and Hong Kong

  • and Singapore and Paris and Frankfurt,

  • we could be leading the way,

  • when it comes to how we can run our cities,

  • and how we can run our economies,

  • and how we can run our healthcare.

  • And that's what I'm looking to do.

  • So I'm super excited.

  • Again, if you want to come to me and have a conversation,

  • email me at hello@londonreal.tv,

  • and tell me, what's the concern you're having?

  • What is the challenge you're having out there?

  • Because I wanna hear from you, and I wanna speak from you.

  • If you want me to come talk to you

  • or you wanna come into the studio and talk to me,

  • I'd love to hear from you as well.

  • So thank you for your thoughts, I really appreciate that.

  • Leave me your comments below,

  • and let me know what your challenges are,

  • I wanna talk about new things every week,

  • and hopefully, the people in power are listening,

  • and they can take some nuggets here.

  • Again, this is not about ego.

  • You know, it doesn't have to be your idea or my idea,

  • I just want the best idea,

  • because I want the best solution for the people.

  • I'm a parent in this city.

  • I'm a business owner in this city.

  • You know, I have friends and family in this city.

  • I invested into the people's good of London,

  • and I wanna see us win.

  • You know, we're the best city in the world,

  • let's start acting like it, is what we want,

  • and let's make London great again.

  • So on that note, just thanking you all so much,

  • I appreciate you on "Real Deal", we'll be back next week.

- It's cool for the structure of this.
