  • Hey, how are you sir?

  • How are you?

  • Good, good.

  • Yeah, I've stopped looking on the filter emperor now.

  • You're more handsome.

  • Come on.

  • Be nice to meet you.

  • I'm a teacher in the local school century school.

  • Okay.

  • I don't really know about much of your politics.

  • I just thought I'd done some questions.

  • Okay.

  • Thanks for coming here.

  • I saw you on youtube than ever.

  • You did.

  • Okay.

  • So it's working.

  • That's good.

  • That's good.

  • We've had, we've had a channel for 10 years on YouTube as well where I interview all sorts of different kinds of people activists, business leaders, boxers, stuff like that.

  • So about six months ago I thought I looked at who was running from there and I was like, sure we got better choices.

  • So I decided to run.

  • Never run before.

  • I don't like politics.

  • I don't like politics business.

  • Yeah.

  • So I've run my own Youtube channel as an entrepreneur for 10 years.

  • Before that I worked 10 years in the city of London.

  • Finance before that I was in America.

  • So I've been here for 21 years.

  • I'm a citizen and um, look policy wise, we're gonna get London back to work.

  • What are we waiting for?

  • We gotta do it safe, everybody struggling without any business.

  • So that's 12 knife crime on the streets and it's going to get stabbed every two or three days.

  • Where is the solution?

  • I think the solutions to things.

  • First, you got to put money in the community centers, which I think comes from corporations because it goes right there.

  • The second is more police on the streets and I know how to pay for that and then it's about transport and that's about housing.

  • I've got plans there.

  • You see how the theory, I have a theory done.

  • Austerity is the main, there's many issues but is the main cause of what we see today gang violence and after a lot of people feel that way you provide food for your family, food on the table.

  • If you're working for his family, you're at home, sorry at work, working maybe 10, 11, 12 hours a day and therefore maybe you can't have the supervision of your kids.

  • It's big, it's bigger than you and I get that.

  • But my thing is there's all this chat about actually.

  • It might be an issue with schools like the an issue with parents.

  • But how do we clamp down on these things?

  • How do we?

  • And I'm just interested to see some of your thoughts on that.

  • It's a good question.

  • You're not the first to observe the back in our weight when they cut everything all the officers off the street.

  • There's a lot of the funding away.

  • I agree.

  • I think we're still in this kind of hangover from that process.

  • And look when you see the knife crime for me is simple.

  • When you see teenagers to have another teenagers, it's not their fault, it's our fault and it's something systemic in there because they don't have the opportunities.

  • You work in a secondary school.

  • The kids leave at 3 30 mom gets home at 8 30.

  • So what are they doing for those five hours and what do they see with the gangs?

  • They see opportunity, big money now in the long run it's a fool's game because in the long run it doesn't pay off.

  • But in the short run it looks good and they got no other options.

  • So I thought to myself, I'm entered a kid for a year and Hackney when I was about 15 years ago and just me being in his life made a huge difference.

  • So I thought how can you get money to community centers properly fund them with a lot of money?

  • I come from a business background and I thought, why don't you call up the big corporations that are making money in London right now?

  • Amazon Uber Hsbc Barclays and say, guess what?

  • I got a win for you, I need £10 million.

  • We're going to help the community.

  • This is we're gonna put it right in the community center.

  • The mayor doesn't touch it when you put the money right through.

  • There was a guy named Jamal Edwards has a company called S.

  • P.

  • T.

  • V.

  • And the Crime channel.

  • Jamal's been on my show, London Rail and he's working with me on this.

  • He already raised £100 from google £100 from the Welcome Trust to fund for community centers in acting where he grew up.

  • That's where he learned how to do video and music.

  • And they were closed down.

  • So I called Jamal Jamal can we do this?

  • But like 1000 times bigger?

  • And he said okay, but structure and everything.

  • So that's one thing we can get the money straight from Corporates.

  • Now.

  • Young lady didn't like that idea because she was like, well the Corporates are gonna invade.

  • But I'm like, where did you get the money?

  • You have to tax the citizens which no one wants to look at the congestion charges, the worst tax because it hurts lower income people.

  • The worst.

  • So again, I look at everything through a business lens, which means no more excuses and business, you can't get excuses to go to our business, Right?

  • No more bailouts.

  • So TFL actually can be run at a profit.

  • It's a major transport infrastructure that puts massive amounts of business in London.

  • Right?

  • Look at all the high rises of Canary Warf.

  • How do they get their jubilee line extension?

  • So how is that going bankrupt when there's making tens of billions of pounds?

  • You tax those corporate guys put it back into TFL.

  • 10 more officers on the street.

  • £100 million centres.

  • That starts setting up a different change where these kids have new opportunities after school.

  • I can teach them how to do a YouTube channel, I can teach them how to be entrepreneurs.

  • So that's one thing.

  • And then housing, nobody builds affordable housing.

  • The mayor, the mayor promised 400,000 new homes, 12,000 homes.

  • So stay with me.

  • TFL is sitting on 5700 acres of land the size of the borough of Camden.

  • They're not doing anything with it.

  • We can build homes right on that land right now.

  • It's called modular homes.

  • You actually design them in a computer.

  • They get manufactured in a plant.

  • They bring it out and they construct them on site.

  • They're beautiful homes, you can customize them And there you can buy one for under £100,000..

  • I've got a site on hacking a week, but we just put the houses there in a picture and I got an architect in London has given this free time to build these homes.

  • So you give people affordable homes, West Crime on the street and you rebuild this economy Proactively.

  • Yeah, I want to do a big event in August called the Great Celebration, 31 days, street festivals, music fairs, 20 million people in this city.

  • Everybody starts making money.

  • So again, it's a bunch of issues you're talking about.

  • But if you give them the housing, we make the streets safer.

  • You've given an economic pulse and you'll retrain these kids and give them opportunities.

  • I think you break that cycle you're talking about.

Hey, how are you sir?
