  • So, first of all, what is the state of the transportation system where we all know it's pretty poor and it's been poor for the past five years on the current mayor's watch?

  • Because the current mayor of London, when it comes to transportation, has failed us.

  • And let's look into why the transportation system is bankrupt.

  • Our fares are now the highest in Europe.

  • The congestion charges have risen by 44% in our debt.

  • Levels are now at nightmare proportions.

  • 2021 this year could see transport for London owing £18 billion.

  • You heard me right £18 billion.

  • And for us nine million Londoners.

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

  • Think about that £2000.

  • Do you have that to spare?

  • Very few of us do.

  • For a family of five, that's a £10,000 bill.

  • And let me be clear.

  • This wasn't because of the covert crisis.

  • The TfL was going bankrupt long before the pandemic hit and without strong transportation, the London economy it's just never going to recover.

  • Now your mayor, City Con, promised to freeze transport fares when he was elected, he promised to make the TfL operate more efficiently.

  • He promised that Londoners quote wouldn't pay a penny more for travel.

  • But just four weeks after he was elected, he broke all of those promises he raised and extended congestion charges.

  • And that especially affects with the new You let zone Burrows like Hammersmith and Fulham, Hackney, Herring, Gate, Barnet, Ealing, Hounslow, Lambeth and Southern, where we are now in Lewisham as well.

  • He raised fares for Children and the elderly, and he's been accused of wasting tens of millions of pounds on luxury travel.

  • Uh, taxis, water coolers, vending machines.

  • And what does he dio?

  • All he does is blame the government and simultaneously ask for Mawr bailouts, and he's gonna be asking for another one in literally a matter of months.

So, first of all, what is the state of the transportation system where we all know it's pretty poor and it's been poor for the past five years on the current mayor's watch?
