  • Sadiq Khan lied to us.

  • The current mayor of London promised to fix our transportation system.

  • He promised to reduce our congestion charges.

  • He promised to freeze our affairs, but he lied.

  • So many people tweeting me saying, What on earth is he done through our roads?

  • He's creating massive traffic jams.

  • Another reason that people don't wanna come into London.

  • Yeah.

  • When Sadiq Khan took office, he pledged that Londoners wouldn't pay a penny more for travel.

  • But just four weeks later, he broke that promise.

  • He raised fares for Children and the elderly.

  • No, it's not good enough.

  • I just can't afford to do it.

  • I hear from you that every journey matters.

  • Obviously, my journey doesn't matter.

  • He raised congestion charges by 44% and he's been accused of wasting tens of millions of pounds on taxis, water coolers and vending machines.

  • Sadiq Khan lied to us.

  • It seems to be like what you're doing is passing the buck as you do so often, Mr Mayor, The reality is you set the pricing for this congestion charge.

  • You decided to make it go to 10 o'clock at night.

  • You decided to run it over weekends.

  • Do you personally, though.

  • Accept any responsibility for the fact that these numbers are going up.

  • London now pays the highest transport fares in Europe.

  • Transport for London could soon.

  • Oh, a record £18 billion for US nine million Londoners.

  • That's a total cost of £2000 for every man, woman and child of this city.

  • And this year he will raise our transport fares.

  • Once again, Sadiq Khan lied to us, and this wasn't because of the Covid crisis.

  • TfL was going bankrupt long before the pandemic hit.

  • Nikon did effectively bankrupt TfL with ridiculous traffic measures that cost TfL £640 million and left them with a huge black hole in their finances.

  • That's the reality of what the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has done just to clarify £4 billion you've lost since May.

  • Sadiq Khan never intended to fix our transportation system.

  • Sadiq Khan never intended to freeze our fares.

  • Sadiq Khan never intended to keep his promises.

  • Sadiq Khan knew he would never deliver.

  • If you put your money where your mouth was, we would not be in the situation.

  • We are now.

  • Someone needs to be held accountable without strong transportation.

  • The London economy will never recover.

  • Do we really want three more years of Sadiq Khan's lies?

  • Londoners deserve better.

  • We deserve a city where our transport system is world class.

  • We deserve a city where our transport costs are fair.

  • We deserve a city where our elected officials don't run up massive tax bills that you and your family are forced to pay.

  • To do this, we need real leadership.

  • What we need, someone who can run our transportation system like a business.

  • We need someone who is financially responsible and who can hold people accountable.

  • My name is Brian Rose, and I promise to put transportation first as your next mayor.

  • I will make London a world class city once again.

  • Yeah.

Sadiq Khan lied to us.
