  • Yeah.

  • Okay, by now, you've probably all heard the news today.

  • The mayor was out about to announce his big plans for getting our vote on May 6.

  • And he was cornered by a bunch of protesters in Enfield that were very angry and upset about his low traffic neighborhood scheme.

  • And they actually cornered him in a coffee shop and he hit out inside for an hour until his security team could get to him and pull him out.

  • And as he walked out, there's a whole video of everyone watching and asking him questions about why he won't even engage with the citizens and the voters who he was there to do a photo opportunity with.

  • Here's a quick video of what happened today when you talk to very socially regressive and he's killing people with the evolution.

  • So why would you talk to us?

  • But the story for us, we're just a few residents today.

  • Please talk to us.

  • Well, it's just very disappointing, you know, we live in a democracy, and this is this is really not good enough.

  • But he's come here for our vote.

  • I would have thought, and there's no there's no engagement was at all.

  • It was just a photo opportunity and that was it.

  • You know, this might be a surprise to you, but it's not a surprise to me because I've spent the past month traveling over 3000 miles through the 32 boroughs of London.

  • I've met people like this.

  • I met a guy named Mark in Ealing who was visibly angry and upset and was practically yelling at me about the traffic neighborhoods.

  • And I said to Mark, I said, I'm not mayor yet.

  • I said, I didn't do this.

  • He said, Brian, I was just so frustrated because no one listens to me and this is ruining our neighborhoods.

  • It's ruining our businesses.

  • Emissions are up.

  • Traffic is actually up.

  • I'm getting fined for visiting.

  • My relatives and ambulances can't even pick up people that are in danger of dying, he said.

  • And the mayor doesn't care.

  • He never consulted with us, and he said, You're the first person who's come here in a year and so I thought I would walk over here.

  • He walked like a mile to come and talk to me, and he voiced his frustration.

  • And so I've also heard the same comments when I've been streaming on the back of the bus as I've gone through places like Greenfield and South Park and Healing and all these other places that are so frustrated with these schemes, the mayor cooks up from the top floor of his glass offices City Hall.

  • Um, and then he puts out a press release and a photo op and calls it green and moves on.

  • And he was doing the same thing today.

  • He was out there for a photo op for his brand new campaign today, Uh, jobs, jobs, jobs don't even get me started about that.

  • I don't know if the guy would know how to create a job if it hit him in the head.

  • Um, he's done the opposite of that with the entire stance that he's had toward lockdown.

  • But, um, today just really showed a great example.

  • And we said this to my team.

  • When we were driving through London, we said, uh, there's no way the mayor could walk down one block of the streets that we walked down without being completely heckled, because every person I meet on the street, they don't like this mayor.

  • They don't want this mayor.

  • And that's why on May 6, we are going to pull off the biggest political upset in British history because the people don't see a man who cares about them.

  • He don't They don't see a man with the plan.

  • And they don't see a man that's thoughtful or that even consults with people in the community before he pushes through schemes just to improve his own political career.

  • And so, you know, today was just an example of the behavior and attitude that I've seen on the road out on the battle bus.

  • And then I've heard from all of my digital live streams and all the comments I see on all of my social media channels.

  • And so it was fascinating to watch.

  • I'll play the end of the video now, Um, but again, we are asking for a debate, so I'll ask yet again.

  • I've been asking this for over a month.

  • Sadiq Khan.

  • When will you debate me?

  • And we can talk about the facts on low traffic neighborhoods and your congestion charge increases.

  • We can talk about you bankrupting TfL twice.

  • We can talk about your complete and utter failure to build affordable homes.

  • We can talk about your shocking, shocking track record on knife crime and violent crime in this city, and we can talk about how you have no plan and no clue on how we can kick start London's economy.

  • I'm there for an open debate.

  • Tell me if my figures are wrong.

  • Please, let's have an open and honest debate.

  • There are only two candidates in this race.

  • You know it.

  • I know it.

  • The voters know it too.

  • And I am the only person who can beat silicon.

  • And I will beat him on May 6 if we all work together.

  • So thank you so much.

  • Leave your comments below.

  • Here's the last part of the shocking video where the mayor of a city refuses to even listen or engage with actually reasonable citizens.

  • They weren't yelling profanity, They weren't throwing things out.

  • And they were just saying, Mr Mayor, will you please talk to us?

  • That's all.

  • They're asking for a voice.

  • This is a democracy.

  • The last time I checked, when you vote, you're leaders are supposed to listen to you and they're supposed to serve you.

  • That's it.

  • That's all they're supposed to do.

  • and this man can't even do either one of these two basic basic principle jobs of an elected official.

  • Leave your comments below.

  • Stay tuned.

  • We've got exactly nine weeks left.

  • Let's take London in a new direction.

  • New leadership and independent voice.

  • Fresh ideas.

  • Let's make it happen.

  • Vote for Brian Rose.

  • May 6th.

  • So, Dave, today can we not talk where we were?

  • Indeed.

  • Please talk to us, Sadiq.

  • This lt n is causing so much hot air around the area.

  • It's socially withdrawn.

  • You're forcing people into not the old days going right.

  • People in the borough, okay?

  • Yeah.

  • The Daily Sports today.

  • Yeah.

  • Shit.

  • Talk to us, man.

  • We will be listened to.

  • Supposed to be a democracy.

  • Good.

  • Straight to the library, at least.

  • Okay, that's it isn't so He's not.

  • So this is the mayor of London.

  • He's just got a photo op.

  • He hasn't engaged this at all.

  • New residents wanted to some problems in the area.

  • And he's just driven off.

  • No engagement.

  • Okay.

  • Thank you.

  • What do you think of that?

  • Well, it's just very disappointing, you know, we live in a democracy, and this is this is really not good enough.

  • He's come here for our boat.

  • I would have thought, and there's no, There's no engagement.

  • Was at all.

  • It was just a photo opportunity.

  • And that was it.

  • You.

  • Yeah.

  • You would have thought it was just a photo opportunity.

  • Sadly.
