  • a couple days ago, you posted something that it looked like it was gonna get 1 80 on you.

  • That it looked like that.

  • I don't know.

  • It was like a local meeting where they seem to not talk about you on the agenda.

  • And then they were gonna take away your crowdfunding money, and it just sounded like everything had gone worse.

  • What was that all about?

  • This was the most disappointing part of the whole thing.

  • If I'm honest, I mean, aside from the initial decision to do this, this was I mean, that could have been an error.

  • The calling it an error.

  • Whether you wanna believe it is or not is an entirely another conversation.

  • But this was malicious.

  • This is what really disappointed us.

  • Now we have, ah section off our council, but deals with environmental health.

  • Now, I won't name any of the parties that were involved, but somebody accidentally went into a staff meeting on accepted a phone call from a member of the public, didn't realize they accepted the call.

  • So we have the entire hour meeting on record, where they proceed to talk very disrespectfully about the police.

  • They say that they should be given out higher fines more frequently.

  • They should be enforcing this harder.

  • But they also state in the phone call in the in the interview, in the story in the meeting Sorry.

  • Which is really interesting that they know legislation is going to be changed.

  • They know that we're doing the right thing, but because that their division feels embarrassed because they haven't been able to close those that they want to come after us and they wanna they wanna slammed on me personally.

  • They have somebody in public health working on taking away the go fund me 53,000 that we raised, which we announced days before this that we were going to donate every single penny to mental health, mental health charities across our border.

  • It So with that in mind, they still wanted to take that pot of money away.

  • Andi, I just say they were definite in my character, you know, bringing up my past from a long time ago.

  • And as I say, I'm a street kid.

  • You know, I've been through darkness and I've come out the other side of it, and I've reformed my life.

  • And to think that when they were when they had the knowledge that we were doing the right thing.

  • But just because they felt embarrassed that they couldn't closes, they wanted to slander our campaign.

  • Take away 53,000 from mental mental health charities on to not stand unified with their borough was was extremely disappointing.

  • E guess that's that's That's just people.

  • I guess I know that they don't speak for the whole of the council.

  • I spoke to the head of our council and she is with our cause.

  • And again, no one endorses was breaking the law.

  • But she did know that it was wrong and she did fight for us.

  • So this is just a rogue sect of our local authority that, you know, that made these statements and you know, E try not to get angry about it.

  • It's just hard to not get disappointed, you know, because I when you stand with your police, your NHS, your people, your politicians, you know your mayors to know that somebody would try and derail it.

  • Knowing that it so clearly the right thing to do is is disappointing.

  • It's disappointing for humanity as a whole.

  • I think you must have been on some serious ups and downs emotionally the last 8, 10 days and like again, I know we'd only we only see pieces of it on Instagram.

  • But you know, the feelings coming from something like that, you know, to the massive amount of money you raised on go fund me.

  • So I'm sure a few trolls out there that start questioning how you're going to use the money and you're like, How did I get this?

  • I'm trying to do the right thing here.

  • And yet when I try to do the right thing, so many people try to do me bad.

  • But it's like it's like almost that's the test from the universe.

  • To see how committed you are.

  • You know, that's what I That's the way I see it.

  • When these things happen, it's like, Okay, well, that just means you got to stand up stronger, right?

  • Yeah, It's as you say.

  • It's once you because once you're in the public eye, you're open to scrutiny, and that's fine.

  • You know?

  • That's okay.

  • No, no.

  • Nobody should be above questioning Andi e.

  • I suppose it's only natural toe.

  • Have your integrity questioned by people that don't actually know the type of person that you are.

  • And so it was clear that the journey that we were on in the campaign that we were pushing for had, you know, good meaning.

  • It's not to say that you know that that is me as a person as a whole.

  • So I understand why people ask questions on about why we continue to release videos, and we continue to update people on what we intended to do.

  • And, you know, our intentions have always been pure.

  • It's always been for the people for the right reasons.

  • You know, the gin enormous sign that you see in my gym that says the people's Jim, you know, I mean, I didn't put that up yesterday that compared to this campaign, you I mean, this isn't This isn't some sort of spin that we put on this to try and gain traction.

  • You know, we really are a gem of the people, and I really try to do do try to be amount of people because, you know, I enjoy people.

  • I enjoy conversation, you know, it's I don't see how anybody could be against that view in life.

  • I really don't you know we should be working together.

  • And today is evidence more than ever.

  • But if we do stand together, we can do bigger things.

  • My, my, my wife.

  • Why don't you want my wife?

a couple days ago, you posted something that it looked like it was gonna get 1 80 on you.
