  • But now I want to talk about education, so I have Children at home.

  • I've got a three year old and a four year old in a 16 year old, and right now they are being prohibited from going to school.

  • My 16 year old daughter can't go to school, and it's a very stressful time.

  • You know, she's she's preparing for her a levels she wasn't allowed to take her g.

  • C.

  • S.

  • C.

  • S last year.

  • She's worried and concerned about our future.

  • And, you know, the Princess Trust has put out shocking statistic, saying that our younger generation has no hope for the future, their mental health.

  • Is it really, really dangerous levels and were in Lambeth right now?

  • And recently Linda Haydn, the boss of the voluntary group Lamb been in tech aid.

  • Lambeth Tech aide in south London, said that the government's provision of laptops is quote unquote a joke.

  • She called the problems that quote unquote national scandal, and they describe the demand for laptops and WiFi access as over well, Ming.

  • And this is an article that came out recently that said Kids in Poverty facing third, lock down without laptops.

  • If we are going Thio, take our Children out of schools, which I don't think is the right thing to do.

  • We've got to give them the technology they need and burrows like land.

  • But they need more of our support.

  • Linda, I appreciate you for putting these issues front and center, which is why my digital first, uh, policy, which is on my website, means free WiFi for all the citizens in London.

  • Unfortunately, ah, lot of arm or challenge burrows and are lower income burrows struggle.

  • They don't have necessarily WiFi.

  • They don't have the technology they need.

  • And this Haydn goes on to say, quote, I'm outraged.

  • The government hasn't Dunmore.

  • We've had a whole year.

  • It's been obvious this is coming.

  • Their promises have amounted to nothing.

  • But it's not just her tower Hamlets borough.

  • I was in just a few weeks ago, speaking before the national lock down Warren four days ago.

  • That quote it needs 10,000 more laptops for Children who cannot attend school during lock down.

  • Um, as this whole row over online learning continues to intensify and again.

  • Another article recently from Sky News said school closures could wipe out a decade of progress for less privileged pupils.

  • This blocking of our Children's right to education is going to have long term implications.

  • It already has.

  • We've got to find a way to get our Children back to school, to do it in a safe manner again.

  • It's got a lot of impacts for their mental health.

  • It's got a lot of impacts for the economy itself, and we've got to really consider the long term ramifications of denying them education but also denying them hope for the future.

  • I'll tell you a quick story.

  • When I grew up in San Diego, California I was eight years old and my mom, she was an amazing woman.

  • She is a single mother.

  • She had three of us kids that she had to look after and she said, Brian, you could do anything you want to.

  • You could be anyone you want to be in this world and maybe it was naive, but I actually believed her.

  • And the problem with today is when I tell my Children that they look at their education system, they don't have access to it.

  • They look at what's going on in this world and they think, Wow, how Can I be anything I want If I don't know what's going on next and that's the problem.

  • Our government hasn't given us a clear road map out of this lock down.

  • They haven't told us when we're getting back to school.

  • Even today, the prime minister, Boris Johnson, hinted it could be till this summer until schools air coming back.

  • Even though it's been proven that younger Children are less likely, Thio contract the disease and less likely to transmitted as well.

  • We have to use the science.

  • We have to have a proportionate response to the virus again.

  • I think that there's a blunt instrument called Lock Down and it's the hammer and all of our politicians CR nails and that's all they use over and over again.

  • I haven't seen even one solution that talked about how we can protect our elderly and yet get our younger people back to school and to get our healthy people back to work.

  • And we need to talk about that right now again.

  • I want to hear from you right now, so police type in your questions and tell me, what do you think?

  • Answer these questions for me first of all, what borough do you live in on?

  • What question would you like to ask me when I visit you?

  • Secondly, do you think it was right for the police to detain us, find us and ban us from campaigning?

  • And do you think this is politically motivated?

  • Third, do you think that free and fair elections should be allowed to take place on May 6th?

  • Um, why?

  • And finally do you think we need new leadership, new vision and new ideas to take London in a new direction?

  • And I could have just swore we went by the Imperial War Museum here in Lambeth.

  • And I gotta say, I was right.

  • Yeah, The team has just given me their shaking their heads.

  • I could see it out of the corner of my eye.

  • You know, it's got those, um, those two big gun turrets that I think came from a battleship out in front, and, uh, you know, this is bringing back memories.

  • You know, I've been in London now for over 20 years, and one of my earliest memories is when I came here in the late nineties, I went to the Imperial War Museum so much incredible culture.

  • It really shows the British indomitable spirit.

  • You know, this country has so much culture and so much history.

  • London does is well and it's it's great to be on the ground.

  • And this is what I think you know.

  • The police didn't understand when they stop me on Sunday, they don't understand that.

  • I need to be on the ground.

  • I need to be in your burrows talking to you, even if it's virtual.

  • I need to be listening to your issues and talking to you, and I really appreciate you for that.

  • So again, Lambeth, I thank you for having me here today.

  • There are 68,000 young people right here in Lambeth that are struggling with not having the technology.

  • They need to go to school digitally.

  • They're struggling by not having those laptops they need.

  • We need a mayor that listens to the citizens.

  • We need a mayor that gets out of his, you know, his top floor office in City Hall with his balcony and gets out here into the boroughs like Lambeth and gets out there into tower Hamlets and Hackney and and barking and Dagenham like I have and finds out what's going on with you.

  • What do you struggling with?

  • And let's have a real conversation in real time.

  • No hiding behind press releases, no hiding behind those, you know, prepared statements that we see our politicians do.

  • I'm here on the ground talking to you live.

  • Let's have a conversation.

  • If I can't answer your question, I'm gonna find out the answer to it.

  • And that's why I'm here with you today.

  • And I appreciate you very much.

  • So going now to check more of your comments coming through here again.

  • I really appreciate that.

  • We've got a camera and Taylor here on Instagram and says, Brian, I'm 16 years old.

  • My my ipads falling over here because we've got bumps from the bus is here.

  • Back to Cameron, she says.

  • I'm on instagram, Brian.

  • I'm 16 years old and I'm rooting for you.

  • I'm struggling.

  • I'm sat in bed waiting for to online lessons a day.

  • Wow, Cameron, this really this really breaks my heart because you're my daughter's age as well.

  • And camera goes on to say it z awful.

  • And I'm struggling mentally.

  • Thank you for standing up for us.

  • Wow, Cameron, I feel you I really feel for you, Cameron.

  • You know, we're asking our Children to stay home in their bedrooms to go to school digitally.

  • What are we gonna do next?

  • We're gonna ask him to go toe work digitally, and are they gonna live their whole life digitally in their room?

  • It's all because our politicians are not giving us a road map out of this crisis.

  • And again, if you use the forecast to lock us down, why can't you use a forecast to free us up for that?

  • So, Cameron, I really appreciate you.

  • I am trying to fight right now to get our our Children back to school.

  • It's such an important part.

  • Honestly, I wanna get my daughter who's 16, Gabriella, back to school as well.

  • She's got to get back there and interact with her students in a real way.

  • Digital learning.

  • And I'm a master of digital learning.

  • I've been teaching thousands of students around the world for the past six years.

  • I've graduated over 5000 students from my London Real Academy.

  • I was on two year, two hours with them last night, speaking with people all around the world digitally.

  • But for our Children.

  • It's not the same thing.

  • They've got to be in the classrooms and we could do it in a safe way.

  • Let's find solutions.

  • Let's elect a leader that confined solutions as opposed to holding their hands up and saying We gotta lock down I don't think that's fair.

But now I want to talk about education, so I have Children at home.
