  • john Henry on instagram says I've got your picture on the side of my car, john take a picture of that hashtag brian from there.

  • I got to see this, I got prime on Youtube saying salute to brian, Keep doing your thing.

  • And uh, this just in, oh my gosh, I got some news here for my team on the bus.

  • The London real party page just went live at brian farmer dot London forward slash assembly.

  • Again, we are fielding four candidates for the London assembly and it just shows you that we are dedicated to London politics for the next 20 years and we're really excited about that.

  • So again, let's jump back into everything happening today on the show.

  • The first thing I want to talk to talk about is the polls.

  • And one of the things that the, the reporter asked me from the Times is, he's a great guy.

  • His name is Damien.

  • I really appreciate the article Damien.

  • I thought you were hard but there and uh, he said brian.

  • But the polls, the polls say that the current mayor of London is going to get re elected.

  • And I said, well, hold on a 2nd.

  • 1st of all, everybody I meet in the streets.

  • They hate the mayor of London and they like my policies once they get to know what I'm about.

  • So my polls on the streets have me at a 98 chance of winning right now.

  • Now, the polls in the newspapers are different.

  • And if you look into how the polls are done, it's very interesting.

  • First of all, polling companies haven't had a good track record back in 2016, they predicted Hillary Clinton would be the next president of the United States.

  • That didn't work out so well for that polling company in 2019.

  • They said that it was a very close race between conservatives and Labour.

  • What happened?

  • It was one of the biggest upsets in political history.

  • The conservatives dominated the entire country.

  • They were wrong again.

  • And even if you look last year in the american presidential elections, the polls did not call it correctly.

  • So why are we believing them now for the mayor of London?

  • The truth is the polling companies call people up on their phones in their homes at night.

  • First of all, I don't even have a phone in my home.

  • I don't pick up phone calls from strangers at night and I don't talk to them for 15 or 20 minutes asking questions about politics.

  • So again, who are they talking to?

  • They're not talking to real Londoners in the streets.

  • And so don't believe those polls, the polls are all part of the two party system that kind of feeds on its own narrative.

  • The media only features the two parties.

  • The BBC had two candidates on for a debate, Even though I've been in second place for this race for the past four months.

  • Again, don't believe the hype because the hype creates reality and then the reality creates more hype.

  • My polls tell us we're gonna win this easily on May six, but make sure you go out and vote anyways.

  • But I wanted to call that out there.

  • I don't believe the polls.

  • What I do believe is what I see online.

  • We've served up 1.5 billion impressions.

  • That's with a B of my London brian from Mayor London campaign of our London real party and we're really excited about all the support we're getting on the streets, people honking their horns, people stopping me.

  • And that's how I feel about those polls and that's why I know they're really not correct when it comes down to that.

  • So just on that, I want to say that let's talk about low traffic neighborhoods now, LTs or low traffic neighborhoods are a scheme cooked up by the mayor of London on the top floor of his glass building.

  • He never went out and consulted with people on the streets and uh he decided to introduce his controversial street space program in May of last year and it was right in the middle of lockdown and he promised at the time to quote, give the streets back to the people unquote, right.

  • Some sounds exactly like something our current mayor would say.

  • Right.

  • And yet, just months later, after he tried to push through that scheme, the High court ruled that, he quote, took advantage of the pandemic to push through his quote unquote radical changes to our transport network with no contribution from residents and other stakeholders.

  • That's the problem.

  • He never talks with the businesses.

  • He never talks with the residents here is the reality of his low traffic neighborhoods and his street space scheme.

  • Both Islington and wandsworth councils had to alter or reverse the L.

  • T.

  • N.

  • Roads due to concerns from emergency services, literally, ambulances can't even get in the roads.

  • We have video footage of this.

  • Also leaked emails show that the London Fire Brigade is having to object to Ellen Council's proposals to use these immovable concrete blocks on the roads to create the Elton's.

  • The Fire Brigade can't have them there or they can't do their job, but it goes even more.

  • The Metropolitan Police have said that, LTs quote, could also create crime hotspots where criminals will use these types of closures to evade police, unquote, not to mention the residents.

  • I was out speaking with Adam and dealing a few weeks ago, we posted this video online.

  • He was livid by the fact that he was getting fined to visit members of his family that emissions up, we're up that businesses were going bankrupt.

  • And so it frustrates me that why this is happening.

  • So my question is this why is the mayor pushing this street space initiative when our emergency services continue to highlight that they don't work.

  • This is the fire service and the ambulances.

  • He's doing it to raise revenue because his TFL is going bankrupt and he thinks it's okay to raise literally millions of pounds of fines during the worst recession in 300 years from the hard working residents of Lewisham of feeling of lambeth of South Park and he's doing that to pay for his failures on TFL.

  • And a lot of people said, well that's because of the lockdown and Covid that's not true.

  • TFl was going bankrupt long before the lockdown happened and that's the truth.

  • He's run our TFL into the ground and now he's trying to use uh increased congestion charges, increase us charges, expanded congestion charges, expanded us charges.

  • And now these lt in fines to pay for his financial mismanagement of our transport networks.

  • And look at Islington Council just five months ago, they generated almost half a million pounds from these penalty charge notices they issued to people in their own neighborhoods for violating these L.

  • T.

  • N.

  • Policies.

  • Some residents have said they woke up one morning and there was one of those plants are boxes Ballard stuck in the middle of the road and they couldn't even get home.

  • These schemes are not about promoting a better environment there, about generating revenue and it's very, very frustrated.

  • And just days ago we found out that TFL, which of course is is basically the Mayor's office wins the right to take the Bishop's Gate case to the Court of appeal because it wants to get the low traffic schemes back on track.

  • So The one Ray of light that we had to see that maybe these illegal schemes might be finally blocked.

  • Something that all of the taxi drivers have been talking to me about why is he appealing this?

  • We just wanted to be able to do our own jobs.

  • Now, it looks like the mayor might be getting his way because of the high courts and this is just frustrating for me to see, and it's frustrating for everyone to see as well.

  • And so this is what's happening.

  • It's one of the reasons I'm going out to Lewisham today, I'm gonna be stopping and some of these low traffic neighborhoods, I'm gonna be talking to the citizens on the street.

  • I'm gonna be filming their reactions in their videos and hopefully the mayor is watching this.

  • Hopefully people can see.

  • And that's the basis of all of my policies.

  • I want to abolish the congestion charge until 2022 to get as much business into London to kick start the economy.

  • I want to rethink LTs.

  • I want to run TFl at a profit.

  • I want to separate that land from TFL.

  • I want to use it to build affordable homes on it with chris Wilkinson and I want to run T.

  • F.

  • L.

  • At a profit.

  • I know we can do this.

  • I've already seen the figures.

  • I've got senior members in TFL that want to work with me.

  • I've got people like Chris Wilkinson that want to work with me.

  • All I need is your vote.

  • We can make this stuff happen on May six.

  • Yeah.
