  • our current mayor of London has failed our communities and our younger generations by slashing budgets and breaking his promises.

  • And I'm going to talk about the detail.

  • Because he was elected in 2016, he pledged to quote, Invest in and protect youth services in London Right now.

  • This was five years ago.

  • Instead, he's cut spending, he's closed our youth centers, and he is creating what is called a quote unquote lost generation.

  • It's unacceptable, and I'm gonna go into the details.

  • Second, I want to show you the impact of his broken promises, and that increase includes an increase in youth crime.

  • Recently, the 1/100 teenager was murdered on his watch.

  • This is unacceptable, and it's getting worse every year he's in power.

  • Do you want three more years of that?

  • I think we know the answer.

  • Next, we've seen higher youth unemployment, and we've seen a mental health crisis for our Children.

  • Lastly, I want to give you my solution to community crisis.

  • I have a solution, and that is this.

  • You have to understand that an effective community requires five things.

  • First of all, it requires people that want to help.

  • Secondly, you need people who need the help.

  • Thirdly, you need infrastructure, Fourthly, unique communication.

  • And 50 you need cash.

  • I have a solution for all five of those things.

  • In a way where we can open community centers, give our youth real options and turn the city around and take it into the future.

  • I'm super excited to share these ideas with you, and I want to hear from you.

  • So we are streaming on a lot of social networks on right now.

  • I want you to answer your questions are answered these questions right now, type them in the chat.

  • I'm literally gonna read them out live while I'm here.

  • First of all, tell me, what borough do you live in?

  • And what question would you like to ask me?

  • Second, I want you to tell me, do you think the mayor has failed our communities and younger generation by slashing budgets and breaking his promises and tell me why next?

  • Do you think it was right recently for the police to detain us?

  • And I'm gonna tell you about that story recently, they find us and they told us we could no longer campaign.

  • And finally, I want you to tell me.

  • Do you think that free and fair elections should take place on May 6?

  • Do we need new leadership?

  • Do we need new ideas?

  • And do we need to take London in a new direction?

  • So before we get started, I just want to give you an update.

  • I am streaming live from the digital battle bus, and this is something we created in order to effectively communicate with you and also for me to get out in these boroughs.

  • It's great to be here and to get out on the streets and see the issues you're really facing because every borough is unique and you face challenges that are different than other boroughs.

  • And as your next mayor of London, I need to be here on the ground with you and understand what your struggles are.

  • And that's why I'm here digitally live with you so we can communicate.

  • I'm literally gonna read all your comments out.

  • I'm gonna be replying.

  • This is a new way of doing politics.

  • This is leaders that are accountable to the citizens.

  • And that's what I want to talk about today.

  • Unfortunately, on Sunday this past week, I was out actually in the street talking to my phone, doing one of my vlogs.

  • You've seen me.

  • I was doing this out on the streets and suddenly I was surrounded by 10 police officers from the city of London police.

  • They arrived in five police fans and they stopped me.

  • And they said that I was not allowed to campaign right now, which seemed very strange to me.

  • They stopped me.

  • They detained me.

  • They find me and my crew and they banned us from campaigning.

  • And we think that this is a fundamental violation of your democratic right.

  • This is the birthplace of democracy.

  • And yet free and fair elections cannot take place if you don't know who your candidates are.

  • And I said to the officer, You can watch the video.

  • It's been it's gone viral.

  • It's been watched hundreds of thousands of times.

  • This story was reported by the BBC by the daily mail and news organizations all around the world.

  • I said to the officer, This seems politically motivated, and he got very angry and loud with me and said, This is not political, This is not political.

  • And yet it seemed like we were being, uh we were.

  • We were being watched and followed and tracked and singled out because of our activity.

  • We went on to speak with our legal team and we comprise this five page legal letter, which I posted on Instagram a few days ago.

  • You can go read it in detail.

  • And this was sent to Commissioner Ian Dyson of the City of London Police.

  • Dame Cressida Dick, the commissioner of the Metropolitan Police and Chief Constable Paul Crowe, author, the chief Constable of the British Transport Police.

  • They've all I've been sent this They've all written me back via email and acknowledge they have this and they've sent some responses back to me, which I'll be sharing with you shortly.

  • So we decided to continue going on again.

  • We are doing this in 100% covid secure manner.

  • This bus has an antiviral fog put throughout the whole structure.

  • Every night we have temperature checks.

  • When people come in face masks, sanitizers.

  • This is run like any film production set in London, and there are a lot of them currently functioning.

  • So if Apple TV right now is filming a series in London doing the same protocols, why can't we do the same and that's why we've pushed forward.

  • Even though on Tuesday our bus was pulled over by the Metropolitan Police just now in Bexley, we were followed by police and every day we are being watched and followed by police.

  • But we're willing to put this on the line and face potential arrests because we believe in your democratic right to choose.

  • And that's why we're here today.

  • Again.

  • We're doing this in a safe manner and we encourage all other parties to continue campaigning in a safe manner.

  • This includes the Tories, the Labour Party, the Lib Dems, the green, all of us should be allowed to continue.

  • And lastly, a lot of you had asked me on this broad broadcast.

  • They said to you, Brian, when will you debate Sadiq Khan?

  • When will you debate?

  • And it's funny.

  • A lot of people have gone to the mayor's social feeds and they said, Why won't you debate Brian Rose?

  • And so I just want to say I am happy to debate the current mayor of London anytime, anywhere, anyhow, all he has to do is give me the platform and the time and I'll be there and we are the only candidate.

  • We are the only viable candidate that can oppose him at this moment.

  • So it makes sense for the two of us to have a debate again.

  • I'm going to give you lots of facts and figures today on how I think he has failed.

  • If he believes that I'm wrong, I would love for him to tell me.

  • And let's have an open and honest conversation.

  • You the voter can watch, and then you can make your decision.

  • That would make me happy.

  • At least the democratic process is respected.

  • So I challenge you, Mr Mayor, to a debate, your format, your place, your time.

  • We are ready and waiting for your response.

  • Mhm.

our current mayor of London has failed our communities and our younger generations by slashing budgets and breaking his promises.
