  • today I want to talk about something called Elton's and low traffic neighborhoods, and it really is a sign of sometimes how City Hall, how the mayor is not in touch with what people are struggling with actually here on the ground.

  • And yesterday I was out with my team on the battle bus again in 100% Covitz Secure Way, and we were dropping off food to the ST John's Food Bank and our good friend Alan Simpson was there and we were dropping off food to him.

  • We had a lot of tin vegetables.

  • We had ah, lot of goods for his people.

  • And as I was getting back on the bus, there was a man named Mark and he was shouting over to me and he said, Brian, do you know what's going on with these?

  • Lt ends.

  • They're ruining our neighborhoods and I had to stop and I wanted to listen to him, and I'll be honest.

  • Mark was really angry.

  • And Mark, I hope you're watching this because I appreciate you coming over.

  • You know, Thio, tell me these things and I appreciate you taking the time.

  • And he was really frustrated because these lt Ends, which are basically a forced way of removing traffic from neighborhoods, were actually stopping him from visiting his family.

  • They were stopping.

  • Um, an ambulance is getting to emergencies.

  • They were actually bankrupting businesses because there wasn't enough traffic or flow, and they were actually increasing emissions as well.

  • And so it really highlighted a fact.

  • And it wasn't just Mark.

  • Everyone that walked by Mark were shouting over there, same concerns.

  • And this was everyone, including cyclists were saying these air a bad idea.

  • No one's listening to us.

  • The mayor has got this wrong, but he doesn't care, and he doesn't listen to the citizens.

  • And so I thought I would talk about some of these local issues today.

  • And I'm gonna talk about him with you again.

  • Leave your comments below.

  • I'll be coming through with a few questions.

  • Now we are right now to bring you up to speed on our digital battle bus, and this is our 100% covitz secure way of getting out there and going to every single borough and campaigning and talking about the issues we plan to do this weeks ago.

  • And yet about 9 10 days ago.

  • Now it was Sunday, one week ago Sunday.

  • Um, I was out in the borough of Southwark.

  • I was actually walking down the street alone, talking to my phone like I do when I record my videos for you every day.

  • And I was suddenly surrounded by 10 city of London police officers.

  • Five police vans came around and they said that you cannot do this.

  • And I said, Well, wait a second.

  • We've got film permits.

  • We've got permits to park here.

  • What do you mean?

  • They said you are not allowed to campaign.

  • They stopped me.

  • They find me and my team.

  • They detained us, and they banned us from campaigning.

  • And we thought to ourselves or something.

  • Not fair about this.

  • So we've got with our legal team.

  • When we created this five page legal letter, we sent this out to the three commissioners of the major police forces here in London.

  • We sent it out to Commissioner Ian Dyson of the City of London police that actually find and detain us.

  • We sent it out to Dame Cressida Dick of the Metropolitan Police and, of course, Chief Constable Paul Crowther as well of the British transport police.

  • And we said we believe we do have the legal right to campaign in our digital battle bus.

  • And we're going to continue doing this because we're doing this in 100% covitz.

  • Safeway, each one of these commissioners has acknowledged the receipt of this and we have been campaigning every single day because we know we're following the letter of the law.

  • We have been pulled over by the Metropolitan Police.

  • We have been followed by police, but we have not stopped.

  • And they cannot stop because we believe this is your democratic right to choose your leaders.

  • We believe in free and fair elections.

  • And if if your candidates can campaign well, how can you choose?

  • And that's why we are out here on the road.

  • We could be pulled over at any time.

  • We could be arrested at any time, But we believe that democracy is important.

  • And so we're coming out to you and doing this and so far so good.

  • But we're we're we understand what we're doing every day.

  • Um, like I said, we think it's important if you don't have the information.

  • If you don't know enough about your candidates How can you vote on May 6?

  • That's 94 days from today and we want you to go ahead and be able to vote for your candidate even if it's supposed to vote.

  • That's fine.

  • But the current mayor has been unelected for the past year.

  • That is not undemocratic in my mind, and the last thing we need is them to postpone the elections or for them to stop us from campaigning.

  • As I told the city of London police officer, I believe that this move is political and he said, No, this is nothing political about that is quite quite loud.

  • It got quite angry and I said This feels like a political move like we're being singled out because I believe our ideas are resonating with you, the citizens and that's why we're continuing.

  • So I just want to say thank you so much for everybody, for your support.

  • If you want to learn more about 100% Covitz secure Battle bus, you could go and watch my videos I put out on my YouTube channel and we're going to keep going.

  • We believe democracy must be preserved again.

  • Free and fair elections on May 6.

  • And we encourage all parties to join us and safely campaign for the May 6 elections.

  • So now I want to ask you some questions again.

  • This is live right now.

  • I'm literally going through these neighborhoods.

  • I'm at the South Wimbledon underground station as we speak.

  • You can see it right over the back of me right now as we make this turn.

  • Um, it's great to be here.

  • Um, it's great to be, I guess we're in the borough of Merton now, if you're writing your Wimbledon so great to be here, so answer this question.

  • First of all, tell me, what's the borough you live in and what is the biggest challenge you face?

  • And what's the question you wanna ask me?

  • Second, tell me, are you frustrated with these low traffic neighborhoods?

  • These lt ends.

  • Are you frustrated with the mayor's street space scheme that he pushed through during the pandemic and was just struck down by the high court is being illegal.

  • And are you frustrated with other mandates coming from the mayor from the top floor of his glass office without consulting local residents and tell me why second or third Lee do you think it was right for the police to detain us, find us and ban us from campaigning some nine days ago?

  • And do you think this was politically motivated?

  • And lastly, I want you to tell me, do you think free and fair elections should take place on May 6?

  • And do you think we need new leadership, new ideas, a new direction and an independent voice?

  • Tell me that and leave your comments below.

  • I'm gonna be reading them out very shortly.

today I want to talk about something called Elton's and low traffic neighborhoods, and it really is a sign of sometimes how City Hall, how the mayor is not in touch with what people are struggling with actually here on the ground.
