  • so I'd like to get into today's broadcast and I wanna talk about the details of how our current mayor of London has failed our communities and our younger generation again.

  • I want to see your comments below.

  • I'll be going to them about two or three minutes, but I want to tell you the fax.

  • When the mayor was elected in 2016, he pledged, and I say and that this is a quote he pledged to quote, Invest in and protect youth services in London right now, and that's exactly what he said.

  • He promised that he would make London safer.

  • But instead the mayor has massively cut spending and the use services budget were cut by 46% between 2012 and 19 2046%.

  • And an even larger cut funding cut is being expected in 2020 and 2021.

  • He also closed our youth centers.

  • Since 2011 11, London has lost at least 100 use centers, and the number went from 234 in 2011, down to 130 use centers last year.

  • That's a net loss of 104 sites.

  • No wonder we are suffering from problems.

  • More than 560 youth workers have lost their jobs.

  • And guess what?

  • That coincided with a rise in youth violence overall, as spending on the use services were cut by 46%.

  • And now 29 London councils have cut their budgets by a combined £36.3 million.

  • Imagine that money being taken away from your community centers and helping the youth.

  • And yet the mayor wonders why he's just had his 1/100 teenage murder on his watch.

  • And guess what?

  • There's Mawr projected cuts to come on.

  • This just shows this serial fare by a failure by our current mayor.

  • Because this is what I believe.

  • I believe the current mayor doesn't care about our communities.

  • I believe the current mayor doesn't care about our Children, and I believe the current mayor never intended to keep his promises.

  • And I ask you this.

  • How can we believe anything he says to us?

so I'd like to get into today's broadcast and I wanna talk about the details of how our current mayor of London has failed our communities and our younger generation again.
