  • what's it like to watch from you kind of being slightly removed from London to watch this whole show, You know, when you see the current mayor, you see the Conservative candidate, you see me and they're doing these completely very kind of new ways of campaigning.

  • What does it seem like to you?

  • It's entertaining, its entertaining in the way that, you know, Trump Trump's campaign was was entertaining in 2015.

  • But you know, we're in unprecedented times.

  • And if you're in unprecedented times, you can't have the same solutions has been rolled out in previous years.

  • You know, you need something different.

  • Um, and you're, you know, you're coming at it in a different way.

  • And what probably what a lot of people don't realize is that you're spending, you don't have to do this, you're spending all your own money on your spending your own money on doing this, you've got your big backers and so on.

  • You're doing it because you're passionate about it and you want to make a difference.

  • Well, who would you rather vote for?

  • Someone who's willing to put his own money on the line to get things up and running?

  • Or a politician who is going to get paid every which way and has done nothing for the last four years.

  • You know, if card was going to do something, you would have done it by now.

  • It's not that he hasn't had the opportunity, but he's made a mess of it.

  • So get out the way and let somebody else do it if the best he's got is to say vote for me because I'm labor.

  • That tells you all you need to know, people are entirely disenfranchised.

  • We've seen Kier Starmer today get thrown out of a pub Because of the way that he has not been any opposition.

  • So I don't think they can get away with it.

  • I think there's going to be a lot of, in the same way as there was in 16 with Trump.

  • I think there's going to be a lot of shocks coming in May six is it May 6?

  • I think you're right and it was interesting to see you know care walking and as a labor guy thinking that everyone is going to kind of welcome him into their establishment and people are yelling at them, throwing them out.

  • Um and like you said, just having that labour name isn't enough anymore and it shouldn't be enough.

  • You know, you can't rely on a brand, that's why big companies go bust because they lean on their brand too much and they don't constantly innovate and deliver value to the customer.

  • That's what you have to do in business, that's what politicians should be doing as well.

  • And you know, I don't see, I didn't see any innovation over the past year.

  • All I saw was they had one solution for everything and they used it.

  • I didn't see anybody coming up with ideas brainstorming, trying to work with different sectors to find solutions.

  • I didn't see any of that.

  • And that's what he's got going for him is really this one single party and the party that maybe someone's parents or grandparents voted for and then pushing all those emotional buttons and yeah, you're right.

  • I am financing this myself, which means they're all my ideas.

  • No one tells me what to say.

  • By the way, you can tell me what to say when I'm streaming live anyway.

  • So it would be impossible.

  • But, you know, I mean, I try not to harp on about this too much, but you're right.

  • I mean, I, there's other things I could be doing with my time and my money right now, I could have bought a house, but I decided to do this campaign.

  • So, um, and it's made me question myself a few times over the last few months, like, how much do you really care about doing?

  • What's best for this city?

  • Because this is costing you?

  • And then I had to look in the mirror and say, I do care, and I really believe in what we're doing here, and I really believe in these ideas, and when we printed this thing, it was a really emotional moment, to be honest, because I was speaking on sunday, and I said, look, if I get hit by a bus tomorrow, And of course, my bus was next to me, and I said, hopefully it's not my own bus, right?

  • But if I get hit by a bus tomorrow, I said, one of you in the crowd could pick this thing up and run with it.

  • You know, it's all here, it's all here what we can do with London over the next 10 years.

  • And so I feel good that it's published.

  • The ideas are out there Unlike you.

  • I haven't published many books.

  • And so this is like a first piece of print, but at least it's my ideas.

  • It's the culmination of eight months of really hard work.

  • I mean, we've seen some other manifesto is published and they're like, you know, 13 pages long.

  • I mean, this is 50 pages of detail.

  • Like I said, worked with people behind the scenes.

  • So I feel proud about that.

  • Um, I don't know if people see that.

  • I think people think business people just, you know, we have money that we don't care about.

  • Business people out there about money.

  • Far more than anybody else I think.

  • Yeah, I mean you started with nothing.

  • I got to London, I was broke as a joke and so like the reason I stayed in business is because I do watch every pound and every penny.

  • And so when we go to invest in something, we take it seriously, right?

  • And so, um, but like I think people feel that, I think it's a feeling of when, when people meet me, it's funny someone, when I meet people on the street, I was an Enfield a couple days ago, I rolled up with the bus, which I'm sure it's got to be a weird thing for people to see.

  • I pop out the, pop out the door and one of my three piece suit, they're like, what's going on here?

  • I got the american accent.

  • I walk over to this girl, she's taking a break at one of her hair salons that she's like actually I've seen you on instagram and I was a junior member of parliament, something to do with some of these teenagers and she said and I wasn't quite sure about you and she started asking me questions, started asking the questions, I pulled out the manifesto, I'm like this is what we're gonna do, here is what we're gonna do here is going to hear.

  • And then at the end she's like take a picture with you, I think I'm gonna vote for you.

  • And so I think when people spend some time with me and they get this in their hands then they really think, wow, here's some new ideas and you know, we've been waiting five years and people know people that get stabbed on the streets and they feel unsafe and Yeah, I think they're feeling frustrated.

  • So we'll see on May six.

  • I think we're going to have a big surprise upset.

  • I think people haven't really calculated what we do digitally.

  • They're using poles and you know, polls, I mean, you know, polls that Hillary Clinton winning by mile exactly.

  • And they had What an even race for the last election here in 2019, right?

  • And it was a blow out in the end.

  • So I think the polls haven't seen a candidate like us before and again.

  • I mean it's crazy.

  • I mean I walked out of my house this morning and uh, you know, the garbage man said, I'm voting for you.

  • I know who you are.

  • I appreciate you.

  • The taxi drivers, buses honked their horns when they go by.

  • I mean it's just weird.

  • People all sorts of people come up to me and they know me and they know my policies.

  • That's the thing they like, I saw your policy video so, you know, we're excited, but we're also going up against the machine.

  • Simon, I won't lie to you.

  • You know, I've contacted some media outlets and they say off come, won't let me interview you.

  • I have to give 50% of my time to Labour Fiction Conservative, and I'm like, are you serious?

  • Um This is what happened to democracy.

  • It's like there's a lot of institutions that are kind of they kind of benefit from the status quo, the two party system, this illusion of choice and everyone is conditioned to it for so long that they're they're not motivated to break it per se.

  • So yeah.

what's it like to watch from you kind of being slightly removed from London to watch this whole show, You know, when you see the current mayor, you see the Conservative candidate, you see me and they're doing these completely very kind of new ways of campaigning.
