  • mhm.

  • So as your next mayor of London, many of you have heard my plans to finally sort out transportation in this great city.

  • I plan to abolish the congestion charge until 2022 to completely rethink these l T.

  • N s and to stop bankrupting TfL, which our current mayor has done over and over again.

  • But, you know, it's not just Sadiq Khan who is running the city into the ground.

  • It's also Grant Shapps, the secretary of state for transport that holds TfL to ransom on a regular basis and demands these ridiculous terms as he doles out these billions of pounds in bailouts.

  • Both of these two are complicit in making it really hard for Londoners to exist in this city.

  • And Grant is the one that really pushed through this extension and expansion of the congestion charges.

  • And he really has been hard on London, and it really shows how him and the Conservative Party just don't care about Londoners.

  • And of course, you can go to Grant Shapps and his total mismanagement of transport in this city and throughout the country.

  • But ultimately you have to look even further to his boss, which is Boris Johnson, who again seems to not care too much about London.

  • He should be the one that does because he was actually a two time mayor of this city.

  • But as he has gone up in his job, he seemed to have forgotten about the real problems we face as Londoners in pain for this transportation system, that is, it's really totally broken right now, and it's a shame to see the higher parts of the Conservative Party really abandoning the great citizens of this city.

  • And again it goes to show you this two party system is an illusion of choice.

  • Both parties sign off on each other's failures, and yet then they give you this illusion of choice every 4 to 5 years, and they continue to bankrupt this city and fleece the citizens of London.

  • We need to hold our hands up and say, Hold on a second.

  • What we need here is new ideas.

  • We need a fresh perspective and we need an independent voice, and that's where I come in.

  • I've got 30 years of business experience more than grants and Boris combined.

  • Throw in Sadiq there for good measure.

  • I've worked in Aerospace.

  • I've worked in automotive.

  • I've worked on Wall Street with some pretty tough characters.

  • I've worked in the city of London with some of those as well, and I've worked in new media and digital education for the past 10 years.

  • We can run.

  • TfL had a profit the same way they run transportation systems in Hong Kong and Tokyo.

  • TfL is actually sitting on 5700 acres of land that's the size of the borough of Camden that could be developed for amazing, affordable homes and incredible retail establishments and other corporate development.

  • But that's never even been considered by people like Grant Shapps, our city con or even Boris Johnson, for that matter.

  • For them, it's business as usual in the two party system running this city into the ground, and US citizens go with it as well.

  • So I want to call out that it's not just our current mayor that is failing us.

  • It's the two party system, and both labour and conservatives are complicit in this process.

  • Please leave your comments below.

  • Tell me if you think we need to change an independent voice and it's time to just get rid of or take a break from the two party system.

  • Leave me your comments below.

  • Share this video.

  • Tell me what you think about these gentlemen and let's move forward with a new direction.

  • And again, I have the detailed cost analysis to run TfL as a profit.

  • I can do it.

  • Let's make the change on May 6.

  • Thank you.

  • Yeah.
