  • gave a speech yesterday, um, out at olympic park and I told a bunch of supporters that were there.

  • I said, you know, London was built on business.

  • That's why we have the great culture, the great art, the great architecture.

  • Because people came here to do business.

  • The romans didn't come here for the view.

  • They came here because it was a center of commerce and that's the way people have always come here.

  • So we can't forget the reason we exist.

  • I would bet you can ask anybody that's watching us now.

  • Who's from London?

  • Why did you come here originally was probably for business or later you got a job and were supported here.

  • So if you focus on business, everything else can potentially be solved because you get the tax revenues, people are doing what they love.

  • They're actually making money.

  • They're keeping their mental well being good.

  • But if you don't have that it's very hard to do anything.

  • And like you said, a cycle lane doesn't help and L.

  • T.

  • N.

  • Doesn't help.

  • Um a statue committee to rename things doesn't help.

  • The mayor came out today and he now wants to rename all the overground lines.

  • That's his big plan for TFL, which is going bankrupt.

  • And I've come out with some simple solutions in my manifesto about how I think we can run TFl at a profit, things like an infrastructure levy separating out the 5700 acres of land the TFL has and getting that to be used in affordable housing and commercial property.

  • I don't, I mean these, this is this rocket science Simon, I took me eight months to study this, but he could have done this, but he never would as a Labour mayor uh just become losing your audio just here for a second.

  • Let me just check if it's my connection assignment.

  • Okay, you're back, you're back.

  • We're back again.

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah.

  • Well, we thought we were having a genghis khan work.

  • Yeah, He's a politician.

  • He hasn't got, he hasn't got a clue how to bring bring London back all.

  • He's just a grifter.

  • You know, he enjoys the, uh, he enjoys the limelight and he enjoys the money that comes from the job.

  • But you know, he's no way if he was going to get London back on its feet, he would have done so by now.

  • He's had years to have a go and we've got knife crime is up higher than ever.

  • All crime is up higher than ever in London and he's made a complete mess of everything that he's done.

  • You know, this is the guy that was calling for curfews and then wasn't calling for curfews and once lockdown and then doesn't want lockdown.

  • And you said earlier, you know, business business plays for everything.

  • There's no other money other than the one that's raised from business.

  • You could say all we could tax people more.

  • Where does that come from?

  • That comes from business, you know, So it's gotta be, it's gotta be a business lead and you're right, you know, there's, there's other countries now that are opening up.

  • So you look at florida, florida's flourishing, texas is flourishing and these places are getting a march, but europe isn't.

  • So we do have a chance in London to open up quickly and get, as you say, get the, get the tourism and just get things going back, but it's not going to happen with genghis can't doing it, that's for sure.

  • And one thing I try to remind people, it's not going to happen with a few dates in the calendar of what you're allowed to do.

  • I mean, we're the worst recession of 300 years.

  • You can't just say okay everybody go back.

  • It's like you need someone in charge that can be super proactive.

  • And I think the job of mayor, I mean I will be working 24 7 as an ambassador for this city, basically selling London to the world 24 7, bringing business here, bringing tourism here, telling over and over until people are sick of me saying it why we're the greatest city in the world because that's the job you got to pull the business in.

  • And like you said the current mayor man, he's really good at politics that he's very good at the press release.

  • He's very good at the photo op.

  • But we've seen when he goes out in public he literally gets harassed and he has to run and hide.

  • I've been told by Labour Party headquarters he's not allowed to go out in public until Election Day because it might jeopardize the election.

  • So it's that in contrast with me, I'm literally trying to see as many people as possible.

  • Sometimes the police are trying to stop me because I'm trying to listen and you know this 50 page manifesto.

  • Okay.

  • A lot of it came from people in the House of Lords, senior Metropolitan Police officers, high level members of TFL architects.

  • But a lot of it came from people in the streets saying brian my cousin got stabbed last week, what can you do about it?

  • The police when they stop and search me it's not they do it in a really disrespectful manner.

  • Can you help I go talk to Metropolitan Police?

  • They say, yeah brian you get any more police officers, I can train them in the community affordable homes.

  • I spoke with one of the architects, they said we can build modular homes on Tfl land and and we do a drawing on Hackney Wick of exactly what it's gonna look like.

  • So it's amazing how many people actually want to see London do better.

  • And they said brian the reason this doesn't happen because the politics, that's what they said and it's inside the TFL that's what the police said.

  • They said this could have all been done years ago.

  • But it's the politics that stops it and that just, that turns my stomach assignment because in the business world you either do it right or you get eliminated right or you you either do it right or you lose, you lose everything you own in your company.

  • That might have taken you 10 years to work.

  • And so you hold people accountable, you deliver value to the customer.

  • The customer here is the citizens of London and I don't see value being delivered to them at all.

  • I see excuses.

  • I see billions of bailouts.

  • I see taxes being raised and you can tell me it gets me riled up right to see it run this way because it's like this.

  • Yeah.

  • You tell me you've spoken to loads of people on your, on your thousands of people over the last few weeks.

  • How many of them have said brian?

  • I really want that statue renamed all.

  • I really want that Overground station renamed or I really want another cycle through London.

  • How many?

  • Yeah, I mean none honestly Simon most people come up to me and before I could open my mouth they say get rid of him.

  • I can't believe he's here.

  • Uh, fire city con seriously before I could even say anything there, slamming and slamming and slamming him, I'm talking old ladies down two teenage kids.

  • He didn't do what he said.

  • I'm talking to people from the asian community, muslim community, people from England uh, that were born here.

  • People from the international, everybody says he just hasn't delivered.

  • And we all expected big things back in 2016 and just five years later, like you said, knife crime is up, the houses aren't built, the TFl is going bankrupt, there's no plan for the economy and people are frustrated and exactly, nobody is saying can we get these things now lately he's coming out with a lot of these initiatives that play to people's emotions.

  • You know, they go, the tories are your enemy is what they go after.

  • They go after let's rename some stops and let's make you feel like a victim in your own city.

  • But that's that's all great for emotions and talk.

  • But then you're gonna have to live in the city for another three or four years.

  • And if you don't have a job or people can't even move around the city because there's so many cycling's and so many restrictions on where taxis can drive and the TFL is continuing to go bankrupt and the mayor is going to keep blaming the prime minister.

  • That's what they do.

  • They go back and forth while the rest of us suffer.

  • And that's why I think people have been really open to me as an independent candidate.

  • Some people just say as long as your independent brian, we're with you because we're tired of the politics and the bickering back and forth.

  • Yeah.
