  • So as many of you know, I received a letter in the post from the city of London police a few days ago outlining my fine when I was banned for campaigning to be mayor of London and again in the printed piece that I posted on all my social channels.

  • It said I was fined for quote campaigning to be mayor of London.

  • As if that's illegal.

  • Um, it went on to say that it was illegal to do doorstep campaigning and volunteer leafleting, neither of which I was doing when 10 city of London police officers approached me in five police fans on that snowy night in January to try to stop my campaign.

  • Of course, we fought back way drafted.

  • Our legal letter sent it to the commissioners, and we've been fighting for democracy ever since.

  • But it's gotten worse today because now they're going after my team.

  • They're trying to find them when they have a right toe work on.

  • They have a right to earn a living, especially when they're doing it in a completely covert, secure way that I've now posted one letter that has now been sent trying to find and criminalized one of my team who is honestly trying to make a living right now, and I think this is unacceptable.

  • I think it's political, and I think most people agree with me that the current mayor of London is trying to stop the democratic process on.

  • We will not accept it.

  • We will not tolerate it.

  • We've been fighting here at London real for our basic right, for freedom of speech for a whole year, and I'm sure as hell not going to stop now when you're trying to threaten our right to democracy.

  • So we have an incredible opportunity tomorrow because a 10 a.m. We have live mayors questions coming at you virtually from City Hall and David, a member of the assembly there, David Curtain has submitted a question to the mayor of London that says, Basically this quote, Why did you ban Brian Rose from campaigning that's been submitted?

  • Its official on the mayor is gonna be forced to answer that question tomorrow at 10 a.m. London time.

  • So I invite all of you to show up.

  • I created a link, Brian for Mayor of London forward slash democracy, where you can go and watch the answer.

  • I'm incredibly curious what he's gonna say.

  • Quite frankly, I don't expect him to say anything very interesting.

  • He rarely does.

  • But I'm curious if you could give a reason why he is choosing the independent candidate that is currently ranked second in all the bookmakers.

  • The only person who could beat Sadiq Khan.

  • Why is he trying to stop me from campaigning?

  • Why is he trying to ban an independent party?

  • The little guy from going up against the two party system?

  • Let's see what he says.

  • Tune in tow, hold him accountable.

  • But right now we are unimpressed with what you're doing and how you're using the police is a tool to stop me from campaigning.

  • And now going after my team for trying to earn a living.
