  • I've got Ash on Youtube that says, I'm living in London borough of Red bridge and I'm open to new ideas.

  • Great to hear from you Ash, That's Ash.

  • I see you.

  • I've been out in leverage a few times right now and uh, my wife Mariana used to live out there with their daughter Gabby before we all moved in together.

  • And so it's incredible out there and I really appreciate you being open to new ideas and that's what we need, we need people to engage with politics in a new way.

  • I'll be honest, I didn't vote in the last mayoral election, you know why?

  • Because nobody made it interesting for me.

  • Nobody showed me that my voice would matter.

  • Nobody showed me that they actually cared about my ideas and nobody engaged with me on my social platforms.

  • I want to change all of that.

  • And I think we're changing it right now.

  • I'm here to listen to you.

  • So let's do this and let's do this together.

  • Reforming light on Youtube says, brian is a good guy.

  • He will do the job well.

  • But these Tory monsters and power will do all they can to stand in the way of every progress that does not take their egoistic benefit into consideration, unquote.

  • And you know the truth is reforming lights.

  • The two party system has a stranglehold on this city and they give you an illusion of choice.

  • Every four years, you get a different choice, But they sign off on each other's failures and nothing changes.

  • I haven't seen anything changed in the past 20 years.

  • Both parties have bankrupted our transportation system.

  • Both parties have failed to build housing and both parties are failing you every day.

  • It's time for an independent voice.

  • But they're gonna do everything in their powers to keep me out of this.

  • And they're going to use their state run media organizations to try to block me out.

  • They're gonna try everything they can with their off com regulators to keep me off the radio waves.

  • I've seen it all and that's why we have to be 10 times better and that's why I need you to help me as a volunteer to share this this information because we can do it and we're going to do it on May six, Stephen Parker on Youtube says, hey brian, what are your plans to energize London's creative economy and the arts?

  • The great Celebration, Is it 31 days of street festivals and music fairs and again it's about 20 million people in here to show off the arts to get the musicians back in business, the theaters, all of the arts and culture, the opera's everything to just get them back in business with the boom.

  • So, great question and we are really into this T 55 14 on I.

  • G.

  • Says brian, you're a humble man, all the best.

  • I'm more humble than you think.

  • Trust me life has humbled me, this race has humbled me.

  • But look I I just want to serve, I want to serve you.

  • I'm gonna serve this message, that's my job and if it takes me being going out there in a big bold way to serve London, I'm willing to do that and uh it is a really humbling process and I've been so humbled by your support so thank you so much for that.

  • I got to get a grip on Youtube says you are a Londoner brian.

  • That's a fact, in fact more so than Boris.

  • He was born in new york and should have stayed in new york and get a grip.

  • Makes a good point.

  • Boris johnson was born in new york city, uh Winston Churchill's mother was actually american.

  • So you know, this city actually comes from all sorts of people from around the world and I am a londoner through and through, I really am and I'm so proud of that fact and londoners are incredible people, they have a great, great view of the future, they work hard, they have an indomitable spirit, their creative and they get things done and I want to be a part of them and I am part of one and I'm excited.

  • I'm considering voting for you.

  • What's the most important thing for you?

  • You know, channels?

  • It's four things.

  • It's rebuilding the economy and being proactive about it from a business lens, which I have, it's ending knife crime on the streets and we can do it, but you've got to have the money to do it and I know where to get it.

  • It's building affordable houses.

  • I'm gonna build 50,000 affordable homes by christmas, mark my words and I'm gonna run tfl at a profit, something the mayor could never do in his wildest dreams, but I can do it because I understand business, those are my priorities and I'm going to start working on them as soon as I have your vote and we're gonna do it on May 7th.

  • I want what's best for London in the long term.

  • And that's why I'm putting these ideas out there.

  • The two party system.

  • They don't know what to do with me.

  • I know for a fact and that's okay.

  • That means I'm doing my job right.

  • I'm a big believer of gyms.

  • They need to stay open for our health and well being.

  • I was swimming yesterday, I challenged Sadiq Khan to a swimming contest since he's too scared to debate me and he's running and hiding Sadiq, I challenge you to a swimming contest.

  • You can pick the stroke, you can pick the distance.

  • But let's have some type of a contest so that people can get what they want.

  • And I'll be doing that of course at my gym.

  • Big shoutout diversion, active, forgetting open and staying open.

  • I appreciate you.

  • All right, a couple more and I'm gonna wrap this up.

  • I got pure mad forward on Youtube.

  • It says this man knows a lot.

  • We don't guys and he is against the corruption in the system.

  • Amen for that.

  • You know what, I don't know what goes on behind the scenes, but I got no time for it.

  • No time for it.

  • I want to go in and do what's best for London period and I can't wait to get in there and shake it up and make sure that we do the best things for London and I'm gonna do it on May seven.

  • So let's make this happen a couple more.

  • Alan Kay on YouTube says, what plans have you got regarding London taxi trade?

  • You know, Alan, I have been speaking with so many people inside the taxi industry, taxi point magazine has just featured me in another two page spread on the inside.

  • I'm gonna have that magazine next time here and again.

  • I want to revise and rethink LTs.

  • I've already spoken about this, the mayor's illegal street space scheme which has been ruled illegal by the high court that he rushed through during the pandemic illegally, by the way that punishes taxi drivers every single day of the week I'm going to get rid of.

  • Also uh mini cab drivers are being punished by this congestion charge, which we're going to abolish until 2022 I'm gonna support black cab drivers who has spent up to £70,000 on electric vehicles.

  • Only for the Mayor City contest.

  • First of all, not recognize them as part of TFL, which is an insult in my opinion.

  • And second of all, not to allow them places to drive.

  • They can't even go down Bishop's Gate, they can't pick people up on bank station.

  • I know the problems facing taxi drivers and I want to end all that.

  • I want to get more roads open for taxi drivers for londoners, we need to move around our city.

  • This congestion and traffic is ridiculous and it can be solved quickly.

  • So, thank you for that question.

  • I got Eugene watching from the States, Love the hustle.

  • Thank you.

  • I've got chris hard bone on instagram saying, watching from Coventry, We love you brian.

  • Keep up the great work.

  • I've had Jeff, Thompson, former Coventry bouncer on my show in the past.

  • So big love sending you guys to Coventry and Jeff of course I got Stephen fontana's on Youtube says, let's go brian spreading the word and reconnecting everyone in what I see as a broken society.

  • Hope to see you in Hackney.

  • Student would love it steven or were based in Hackney.

  • I love that Burrow so much.

  • We spend a lot of times there, so look forward to seeing you.

  • And the last comment here is Harry uh, photo nakase on Youtube says I like this guy.

  • He wants a prosperous London.

  • Nothing like other candidates I have seen.

  • And that's true.

  • Harry, I'll take that one.

  • I'm not like any other candidate you've seen.

  • And yeah, the truth is our prosperity is important.

  • And let's, let's just finish on that point.

  • London was built on business.

  • This city has been here for over 2000 years because it was built on business.

  • The Romans came here, not because it was a picturesque place to be, because there was commerce here and there was the future here.

  • And we need to remember that the reason we're here, the reason we have incredible culture and arts is because Londoners are here making a living and doing business and that's why I want to bring you the great celebration and give an injection of business into the London economy, something we probably never seen before in history.

  • I want to celebrate the cults in the art of the culture and arts.

  • I want to drop the business rates to zero to support all businesses and get everybody back employed.

  • And of course, I want to abolish the congestion charge to get everybody here.

  • Yeah.

I've got Ash on Youtube that says, I'm living in London borough of Red bridge and I'm open to new ideas.
