  • (upbeat sound)

  • - Okay, the numbers are out,

  • and they've proved that London is paying a steep price

  • for this one size fits all lockdown.

  • The REC, which is the

  • Recruitment And employment Confederation has said that

  • overall throughout the country, there are currently

  • 1.4 million job listings.

  • Now job listings are a proxy for consumer confidence

  • and for employer confidence.

  • The more job listings, the more confident they are

  • in the economy and right now in London,

  • those joblistings are down some 18.7% from the crisis.

  • Now up in the Northwest, they are up by 36.8%,

  • which goes to show you that we see wildly disparate numbers

  • when it comes to the economic survival of the country

  • when it comes to the outbreaks when it even comes to

  • the age groups of who's being affected by the virus

  • and yet, our Prime Minister and our Mayor of London

  • are selling you and me on this one size fits all solution.

  • All they have is a hammer, so everything looks like a nail,

  • and it's lockdown, lockdown, lockdown,

  • and we saw the Mayor of London Crusade for this entire city

  • to be locked down even before the numbers showed it,

  • and we see our Prime Minister that wants to lock

  • every single place down because of the infection rates that

  • are happening in certain areas of the country.

  • Now this week, I had Dr. Martin Kulldorff,

  • who penned the "Great Barrington declaration" that said,

  • "There's 1000 fold difference between the vulnerability of

  • "young people compared to old people to the virus,

  • "and therefore we need to treat those people differently."

  • I'm saying the same needs to be done

  • for the different locations in the country.

  • They all need to be treated differently,

  • stimulated differently,

  • and again, use this science based approach.

  • So we have a proportionate response to the virus.

  • That is not being done, and right now

  • London is paying the price,

  • and we're seeing that happen in different cities

  • and my point is this, whether you're in Liverpool,

  • or Manchester, or Leicester, or in Wales,

  • or Northern Ireland, or in Scotland,

  • you all need a different strategy

  • to solve the problems you're facing

  • from an economic standpoint, from the virus for everything

  • that's happening and that's what we need to make sure

  • that our leaders do.

  • Tomorrow, I'm going to be sharing on my vlog

  • exactly what's happening sector by sector,

  • and the numbers are going to shock you

  • how far numbers have dropped for people

  • like personal trainers, chefs,

  • and how employments gone up for truck drivers and nurses,

  • and yet we have a one size fits all furlough policy

  • where every single company is given furlough.

  • Your tax dollars are being are being wasted

  • by being given to employers who are doing fine,

  • and yet other people are suffering

  • and they're not getting the aid they need.

  • We must have a proportionate response to the virus

  • and that's why we need leadership

  • that has more tools than just a hammer.

  • They have more tools so they can deal by a sector, by sector

  • by a region by region,

  • and make sure that we can get this country back to work,

  • and that's why I keep talking about this,

  • and it's one of my key policies

  • as your next Mayor of London, to get London back to work,

  • to use science based decision making

  • and make sure we have a proportional response to the virus,

  • and by going through these data,

  • and really understanding the numbers,

  • I promise you as your next mayor to go ahead and do that.

  • Targeted relief, whether it comes from

  • an infection point of view or an economic point of view,

  • so we can get through this crisis

  • and get everyone back on track.

  • Please leave me your comments below.

  • Tell me if you think we should do

  • a sector by sector intervention,

  • when it comes to the economic reasons or with the infection.

  • I want to hear your comments

  • and of course, share this video on to someone who needs it.

  • Tomorrow, I'll be talking about specific sectors,

  • what we see the numbers actually telling us

  • they're down or up and what we can do about it.

  • Again, I want to get us all back to work

  • because if you strengthen the economy,

  • it solves all of our other problems.

  • It solves our younger generation, our mental health,

  • even our physical health, it gives us the resources

  • and we can use those to survive.

  • Again leave me your comments below and go ahead

  • and go to our website, BrianForMayor.London,

  • and get that fresh swag.

  • You know what's up, and I'll be coming at you more

  • with more of these videos.

  • I appreciate your help.

  • We are winning this race

  • and we plan on taking London in a new direction.
