  • Recently, we've heard reports that the prime minister is considering canceling the upcoming elections on this just isn't the election for Mayor of London.

  • This is also the election for councils throughout the country, in counties and in cities.

  • This is our basic human right, our democratic right to choose our leaders that represent our interests and make sure they represent those interests moving forward.

  • Let me ask you a question.

  • Are you happy with every single decision that your elected leader has made in the last 12 months?

  • Well, if not, you should be allowed to choose new leaders or toe hold the current leaders accountable to now aligned to your decision process.

  • This is the purpose of a democracy, and when you hijack the democracy and postpone it, then you ruin everything that this country was built on.

  • And let's quickly remember they've already done this before.

  • In May of last year, they postponed the elections for a year, which means the current mayor of London shouldn't be in office right now because no one voted him into this five year term he's currently experiencing.

  • No one agreed that he could have an extra year, but they just decided that they were going to postpone elections.

  • It's not fair now.

  • I understand there's issues of safety that we have to consider.

  • Maybe people can't come out and congregate and elect in a normal way.

  • So then we have to consider a postal voting system, but that's already been ruled out by our prime minister, he says.

  • That's not gonna happen as well.

  • And so you've got to ask yourself what's going on with this two party system?

  • Why aren't they allowing us to choose our leaders and hold them accountable?

  • When you have non fixed terms, which is what we're seeing now or you don't have free and fair elections?

  • Then why would these people represent our interests?

  • This has to stop now, which is why I've created a petition that's gonna go in from a parliament, and we're going to demand that we have free and fair elections here on May 6th.

  • No exceptions.

  • If it can't be done in person, let's do it in a postal manner.

  • So click the link below.

  • Let me get your signature on that way, this will have to be debated in Parliament and weaken demand our basic human rights and our rights as a democracy.

  • This is so important.

  • I can't stress this enough.

  • Um, if they postpone this, it means that they're gonna be able to make more and more decisions that aren't in our interests.

  • I believe in democracy, and I believe it works.

  • I believe that the people know what's right and we choose the best leaders.

  • But when you take that away from us, well, it's no longer a democracy.

  • It's not free, and it's not fair and it's not acceptable.

  • So please click the link below.

  • Let me get your signature.

  • Let's make sure they do not hijack this election.

  • Let's make sure they don't take away our right to choose.

  • This determines our future, our health, our livelihood, our Children's futures, their education.

  • It's all riding on this now.

  • This is the one point in history not to postpone elections.

  • Click the link.

  • Give me your signature.

  • Share this video with someone who needs to see it.

  • Give me your comments below, but we have to make sure this does not happen.

  • We need a democratic process.

  • Your vote matters.

  • Your choice matters.

  • Let's get leaders that represent the voices of the people.
