  • - [Brian] Sadiq Khan lied to us.

  • He promised us better air quality in our neighbourhoods.

  • He promised us less traffic.

  • He promised to give our streets back to the people.

  • He promised to improve our environment.

  • Instead, his low-traffic neighbourhood scheme

  • is ruining our city.

  • Sadiq Khan lied to us.

  • - The so-called low traffic neighbourhoods,

  • which involved bollards and planters blocking off roads

  • have led to protests and petitions.

  • With 200 of them now underway across London,

  • some say they are causing more congestion.

  • - [Brian] Sadiq Khan lied to us.

  • His low-traffic neighbourhoods prevent people

  • from visiting their families and caring

  • for their loved ones.

  • He stops people from attending work

  • and keeping important medical appointments.

  • He is bankrupting businesses and ruining local economies

  • because of the lack of footfall.

  • He prohibits our emergency services from saving lives

  • and prevents disabled people from access to their homes.

  • - Absolutely fuming. - Everyone's done, sir.

  • - The main mayor, right, and the government

  • funded that scheme.

  • They paid the money to Ealing Council

  • to implement it. - Yes, they did.

  • - There is many that feel the same as me.

  • We had an ambulance whilst this scheme was up

  • and a man had a heart attack inside.

  • It was all over the news, okay?

  • And they couldn't reach him in time

  • because the ambulance didn't have the key in time.

  • This isn't a local council thing.

  • (beeping)

  • It's government and it's Mayoral Hall.

  • That's where it sits.

  • Those fundings comes out to these places

  • to put these schemes in place.

  • And we don't bloody want it. - Absolutely correct.

  • You're absolutely correct.

  • You are correct.

  • LTNs actually cause more traffic problems,

  • increasing emissions by up to 300%

  • as the mayor generates millions of pounds of income

  • from fines given to residents in Ealing, Lambeth, Hackney,

  • Islington, Enfield, and more.

  • Sadiq Khan lied to us.

  • The current mayor is using his low-traffic

  • neighbourhood scheme to extract money

  • from hardworking citizens to save

  • his bankrupt transportation system.

  • - You are passing the buck as you always do

  • to central government.

  • Do you personally though accept any responsibility

  • or is it all everybody else's fault?

  • - [Brian] His LTN fines punish lower-income families,

  • charging an outrageous 130 pounds per offence

  • during this challenging recession.

  • - I'm almost trying to hold my temper.

  • That's how I feel. So angry.

  • So absolutely okay with what's going on in this country.

  • There's local businesses inside that LTN

  • that cannot operate.

  • They're shutting down.

  • There's a car mechanics.

  • There's no getting passing trade.

  • Pharmacy which service the local area that I could walk to.

  • Shutting.

  • Okay, so what they do is they stick these barriers in.

  • If anybody makes a mistake, it's 200 quid.

  • - [Brian] And with journey times increasing by 77%,

  • it is obvious that LTNs are failing the communities

  • they are supposed to serve.

  • The High Court recently ruled that Sadiq Khan took advantage

  • of the pandemic to push through these radical changes

  • with no consultation with the residents.

  • Sadiq Khan lied to us.

  • Londoners deserve better.

  • We deserve a mayor who cares about our residents,

  • business owners, disabled, and emergency services.

  • We deserve a mayor who doesn't tax our citizens

  • to repay debts from his own financial failures.

  • We deserve a mayor who doesn't break the law

  • but instead consults with local residents

  • and stakeholders about important policy changes.

  • To do this, we need real leadership.

  • We need someone who can run our transportation system

  • like a business.

  • We need someone who is financially responsible

  • and who can hold people accountable.

  • My name is Brian Rose and I plan

  • to put transportation first.

  • As your next mayor, I will make London

  • a world-class city once again.
