  • mhm.

  • All right, What's going on?

  • I'm out here in black, Keith.

  • I bumped into my man here.

  • Sam Steele.

  • Brian.

  • How's it going?

  • Just met him for the first time.

  • I guess you saw some videos and stuff.

  • We've been talking politics and stuff, you know?

  • Tell me briefly what we just talked about.

  • I mean, what's going on in London with the politics, with the leadership?

  • What's your challenges?

  • What are you frustrated with?

  • Tell me.

  • Well, it's hard to sum it up in a couple of sentences, but I think ultimately we've been talking about politics.

  • We had a little private personal conversation about cars, which is basically think are not myself challenges.

  • There's always challenges.

  • If you're not challenging yourself in life, you're not working hard enough for me.

  • It's trying to find a job for me.

  • It's trying to be successful.

  • For me.

  • It's trying to support my single mother, you know, and help my sister be happy.

  • You know, she's a young woman struggling to work hard at school, and she feels like she's not always confident in doing the best.

  • But she's a hard working woman.

  • So those main things, I think, right now it's really difficult to get jobs out here.

  • It's not an easy thing.

  • Everybody's having their benefits cut.

  • Everybody's losing, their jobs being followed.

  • And the bank called for me, and I'm sure a lot of other young people who have come out of school is to go out and get a job.

  • So I said, That's the main thing for sure it was for me, too.

  • I mean, people forget London was founded on commerce, right?

  • That's where we all came here.

  • That's where the Romans came here, because it was a place to do business.

  • But we seem to have forgot that along the way, and it seems to be like a secondary or tertiary focus and like what I didn't see this last year is I didn't see our leaders coming up with innovative solutions to safely get us back to business.

  • I still don't see a plan.

  • I see a plan to allow us out of lockdown, but I don't see any proactive solutions to invest in the communities or get internships like you were talking about, or I got this great idea for something called the Great Celebration.

  • 31 days of festivals, 20 million people in London just to show the world that first of all, were the best city in the world.

  • We are.

  • And to show them that we're back, that we're over this and then we're looking forward.

  • I don't know.

  • I'm thinking just big business stuff.

  • Yeah, we were talking about how innovation a lot of time has to come outside the system, right?

  • Sometimes the two parties, it's not really in their interest to change the game.

  • So you've been following our stuff on?

  • Yeah, the rest.

  • You too bad.

  • And what have you, you know, and I'm really impressed with what you have to have.

  • I mean, for me is a car guy getting rid of the whole you Listen, it would be amazing, but that's just me personally, but we've got to keep things balanced between protecting the environment for our future, for our Children, for everybody we love and care about.

  • And, you know, between us, car guys, you know, we love to go out for a rip here and there.

  • But now I'm really excited about this campaign.

  • I mean, something that that's definitely worth looking at is the festival we do over here on black is it's called on Black Keith.

  • It's originally it was sponsored by John Lewis and Partners.

  • I'm not sure what's going on with the funding now, but the past few years has been going on.

  • It's been amazing.

  • We've had, you know, the people that they've put on have been real talent.

  • People like Dallas, all the liberties Jamiroquai, real talent to be rag and Bone Man program.

  • And we need to be supporting more things like that, Really?

  • The Black Keith fireworks as well as locally supported by the Lewisham Council.

  • You know, uh, it's really important that we support things like this, you know, because they're funded by local governments.

  • They're funded by local councils.

  • You know, these are not private businesses.

  • These are things that, as a community, we need to protect, and we need to need to start paying more attention to money into so, you know, if you're if you're if you're campaigning, you're offering to do things like that for us and the people of Black Keith in London and you've got all the way.

  • Sure, I'm on big in.

  • First of all, I'm pro business, but I'm also how can we get more invested in the communities.

  • How can we just get simple things done?

  • You know, like, how can we get rid of the red tape and also do the right thing for people?

  • Like I said, I think the conservative Mr Mark a little bit on that I think Labour's dropped the ball with this current mayor on actually getting some things done in some practical pieces.

  • So I just want to shake it up with some new ideas.

  • And again, I come from the business world.

  • If you don't do it right, you go bankrupt.

  • You know I can't I can't ask for a bailout.

  • I can't blame the Prime Minister.

  • It's like you got to get it done.

  • So I just think we hold people accountable.

  • We have metrics.

  • I'm sure you like metrics.

  • We post KPs every 30 days.

  • Are we doing what we say?

  • Are we not?

  • And just that whole lens of businesses I do appreciate you watch this space, Talented man.

  • Here.

  • Thanks for having us on black Welcome.

  • Thank you.

  • May 6.

  • Let's do this.
