  • Please, can you help me remember the video?

  • Yes.

  • Uh, my name is Sunday.

  • Okay.

  • Nice to meet you.

  • I'm in London.

  • Taxi driver classes every day.

  • Thank you.

  • I love your trade.

  • I've seen your billboard, right?

  • You see my interview with Steve McNamara of L T D.

  • As well, 100%.

  • Okay, I've seen your billboards all over London.

  • Your campaign all over everywhere.

  • I'm one of you all London citizen.

  • Yeah.

  • Decide not to vote in this in a mayoral election because I have been let down by the two previous consecutive mayor, and I'm completely, you know, federal.

  • I was driving by.

  • I saw you know your van and have a look.

  • I saw you.

  • I thought you know what?

  • Let me come back and talk to you.

  • Maybe you can convince me and some few other guys.

  • My question is Well, what's so hard to obtain this license?

  • No.

  • And we have seen our livelihood come down the tree without no hope.

  • We are completely done lost in this tree.

  • What do you intend to do?

  • to revive.

  • You know this trade and perhaps, you know, give hope back 27,000 plus driver that is on the road unless, you know trip.

  • So it's a great question.

  • First of all, I can feel your frustrated I'm a business owner as well.

  • I'm frustrated by this economy as well as crushes.

  • Um, you invest what, three years?

  • Four years?

  • To do the knowledge That's one of your electric taxes.

  • 65 grand.

  • Just like that.

  • You guys best as entrepreneurs.

  • And then you reap the benefits of your business goes well, right?

  • That's the beautiful thing about capitalism.

  • London was built on business.

  • People like you, starting businesses current mayor of London.

  • He doesn't even recognize black taxis as part of TfL, even though you're the only method of transport for handicapped people.

  • Right over on Bishop's game.

  • Part of the sentence.

  • But he doesn't even recognize that because I don't think he believes in entrepreneurs or respects entrepreneurs.

  • Now, I felt like you did six months ago.

  • I hated politics.

  • Be honest.

  • I don't even vote.

  • In the last few years election.

  • I've been an entrepreneur for 30 years, but I looked at the current mayor and I said, This guy is running the city.

  • I love into the grounds He's not getting London back to work.

  • Look at our knife.

  • Crimes on the street is ridiculous.

  • No affordable housing.

  • And TfL is a mess with congestion charges going up because he bankrupt transportation.

  • So I'm coming in and I'm looking everything through a business lens.

  • First of all, let's get London back to work safely, right?

  • I bet you have very few fairs every day right now, right?

  • Three or four going down the tree because the mayor is not trying to find an innovative way to safely get people back in the city.

  • Why, why?

  • He's never run a business in his life.

  • I don't even think he respects business people.

  • I don't think he understands how hard it is to run a business he just wants to attach.

  • So first of all, we got to get London back to business to get back next.

  • We got to start fighting some of these issues.

  • The congestion charge.

  • Why is it so high?

  • Because you can't run CFL without moving.

  • Go bankrupt.

  • I've looked at TfL.

  • We can run this out of pocket.

  • It's sitting on 5700 acres of land that we can develop into housing into commercial spaces.

  • We can make money for TfL.

  • We can also put more police officers on the street.

  • It's gonna cost us £300 million a year for 10,000 police officers on the streets.

  • I've spoken with the police chiefs and they said that will make the streets safer.

  • I also got a plan to put £100 million into communities from corporate donors.

  • Amazon Uber HSBC Barclays.

  • This time they put money back into our communities.

  • Our kids don't have the results tonight and I'm gonna build affordable housing.

  • And the mayor spoke 400,000.

  • He said he would build 400,000 affordable homes.

  • He's built 12,000.

  • I got a plan to build 50,000 by Christmas.

  • So these are the problems with this city and I understand you're jaded.

  • The current two party system is a mess, right?

  • Labour conservative.

  • They give you an illusion of choice, right?

  • You were frustrated, right?

  • By Boris.

  • You're frustrated by con It's the same business as usual.

  • So I come an independent perspective.

  • I've got no corporate donors.

  • I got no parties.

  • I come up with the best idea.

  • I speak with the best experts.

  • And when I speak my mind, I've been speaking with you right now.

  • I want the best thing for London.

  • I live here 21 years.

  • You came from another country, right?

  • I did too.

  • I went to 21 years.

  • I love to see.

  • All we have to do is stop the politics.

  • Everyone said it's the politics that stops London for going back to prison.

  • So you're independent candidate, this independent candidate.

  • I'm in second place right now.

  • I'm ahead of the conservative candidate because the people like my ideas and and black black cabbies like me as well, Because I support entrepreneur independent candidates while I have, you know, two questions in this year.

  • Yeah, well, this is the question in connection to my first question.

  • Okay, this is this is not my second initial question.

  • Okay.

  • Us on independent candidate.

  • How do you think you can push your agenda and your policy?

  • True in the prison political system?

  • This?

  • I got a bus, I got digital files.

  • I've run a show called Money Has to go home to to half a billion views.

  • I got five million subscribers.

  • Uh, two million people in London knew me before I started this race, so I got a weapon, but they don't have Right now.

  • They have their newspapers that have their own agendas and their own favoritism.

  • They got the corporate donors, but I got the people.

  • I got people like you.

  • I'm not here on the streets talking to people like you.

  • The mayor was here right now.

  • You know what would happen.

  • He would be yelled at by people here.

  • He would be run down the street.

  • He went and hot.

  • He went to hide in a coffee shop to living there.

  • So that's what makes me different.

  • But yeah, it's not gonna be easy.

  • I'm not gonna lie to you.

  • It's hard out there.

  • The two party system is a force when we we're in second place.

  • Right?

  • My second initial question.

  • Sorry.

  • 50.

  • Probably not being, you know, about bringing in to ask the hard questions.

  • My second Michelle question.

  • Right.

  • Let's put in our statistics and numbers.

  • Let's put it aside.

  • Okay.

  • What do you think you can do or what do you intend to do about all this road closure against my trade junction, which is which is the hat which is the hat trade of my business?

  • The city gang junction I cannot do am Bishopsgate So many words that I cannot put my my knowledge for 3.5 years have been rendered uses no out of 10 times.

  • Now if I'm not careful and good and try and kind of soft You know, we've been navigating navigating navigation system.

  • I might probably, you know, not be able to do my job, you know, successfully because I don't know what road is closed when it's closed on how it's close.

  • So now what do you think you can do to revive this trade as result of all this route pressure against Black Taxi, please.

  • First of all, I can tell you're angry and you're frustrated and I know it because I take a taxi home every single night.

  • It's like a black cat home every night.

  • I've spoken with probably 300 drivers in the last few months.

  • They all are angry because the mayor of London City con is ruining our roads.

  • He's ruining, right?

  • Look at the bike lanes on embankment.

  • Look at his streetscape scheme that was just ruled illegal by the high court.

  • Right?

  • You guys won that ruling.

  • Now he's appealing at the city money.

  • We shut down Bishop Katie shut down bank.

  • I was doing a photo shoot in bank about three months ago.

  • I called the black taxi, didn't even pick me up.

  • He is ruining the roads and he doesn't understand.

  • The basic function of London is to transport people around.

  • You've got to support transport.

  • I'm all recycling.

  • I'm a cyclist myself.

  • But we've got to stop having these dedicated cycle lanes that ruin you from driving around London.

  • Black cabs have to be respected as part of TfL, and we have to get this streetscape seem completely gone, right?

  • It's been ruled illegal.

  • It's got to be completely locked out that, along with the L.

  • P M cell teams are ruining to this neighborhoods as well.

  • So I understand I've been in taxes with people like you, and the drive has taken 20 minutes and costs from £23 extra because of what the mayor is done to shut our roads down.

  • He's trying, I think, to make himself look green, but it actually causes more emissions, right?

  • It causes more traffic jams.

  • While he looks like he's trying to solve a problem for London, this is what the mayor always does.

  • He sits in the top four of his office.

  • He signs off on these supposedly green initiatives, and they ruin everyone's lives and they ruin your lively.

  • It's kind of frustrating.

  • You should be frustrated and should be frustrated.
