  • Hey, how are you?

  • What's your name?

  • My name is, nice to meet you.

  • How are you?

  • Hi, nice to meet you.

  • You live around here.

  • Okay.

  • I used to live right on a smart card with my kids.

  • I'm undecided voters.

  • Okay, good.

  • It's good.

  • It's quite detailed.

  • Thank you spent eight months on it.

  • I really did.

  • I won't take much of your time.

  • I just have one question.

  • A lot of impressive schemes.

  • Yes.

  • Could you give me a summary of how you plan to pay for all of these are Like, how will you raise revenue for the additional expenditure that all of this?

  • So it's a great question.

  • So I come from 30 years in the business world.

  • I've never considered politics before.

  • Never even crossed my mind until about nine months ago.

  • So everything I see it through the lens of business.

  • I worked in automotive and aerospace, I worked in the city for a while.

  • I've been in digital media for the last 10 years.

  • So I have a YouTube channel and a lot of views and people watch me interview people.

  • That's usually what I do.

  • So when I look at all the problems in this city, I started looking at through a business lens.

  • So first of all, how can we get London back to business?

  • So for the last year we didn't see anybody trying to create innovations to get London back to business.

  • When London's working, it solves a lot of our problems, right?

  • NHS has enough money.

  • Tfl has enough money.

  • People's mental health is good.

  • So we forget London was built on business.

  • Always say that Romans didn't come here for the view came here for business.

  • Right?

  • So we need a mayor who is proactive about business.

  • I don't think dates where you can open up as a way to actually start business.

  • So one of the big things I want to do is something called the Great Celebration, August 31 days of street festivals and fairs and show the world that we're back for business.

  • I want to cut the congestion charge at the end of the year so as many people can come to London and start spending, I don't want to drop business rates down to zero.

  • Now look at some other policies like making the streets safe.

  • 10,000 more police officers on the street cost money, right, TFL is running into bankruptcy right now.

  • Where's the money?

  • So I see in T F.

  • L.

  • A whole lot of money.

  • So my example is Canary War.

  • If you ever been on Canary Warf right now there's like big banks, these big real estate developments all enabled because the jubilee extension, that's why that all those buildings are there because you can get from Bond Street there in 14 minutes or something, but no one's paying for that.

  • So all these developers are making a lot of money.

  • I'm asking for a 3% infrastructure levy gets kicked back to the city, for police and for the TFL that comes from those developers, you know, Crossrail, we've all heard across rail, right, that's expected to increase the business around those stops by £25 billion Is what that's expects.

  • So three of that is £1 billion pounds per year.

  • That's quite a lot of money to pay for the police and to pay for the transport system.

  • So again, everything I look at it through that lens of business, I see a lot of revenue.

  • Also, TFL has 5700 acres of land, it's the size of the borough of Camden that we're in.

  • We can separate that and put affordable housing which you saw there on there.

  • Also commercial development, retail development.

  • There's a lot of money there.

  • But the current mayor, he just says, oh well increase your fares are increased congestion charge or ask for us for a bailout.

  • I mean London runs at a profit, but the government's going bankrupt just doesn't make sense.

  • So I see ways we can ask and I spoke to some of the developers and I said 3% infrastructure levy.

  • They're not too happy about that, but they, but they do know it's a reality because right now what they do is they they wait for the new tube extensions and then they buy all the land and they develop.

  • It Doesn't sound very fair to me.

  • So if you're within 500 m of a tube stop, you pay three infrastructure level, which just means if your property goes up more than the average of London, you pay a small percentage back.

  • That's enough money to run TFl a profit.

  • So we can drop the congestion charge and we can pay for the police on the streets.

  • Last thing I want to do is get corporations to directly fund our community centers because these kids don't have many options, right?

  • You heard about the knife crime, It's ridiculous.

  • So more police will help.

  • But we've got to give these kids something better to do.

  • So we've got to teach them entrepreneurship Mentorship apprenticeships.

  • But the current mayor shut down.

  • I think over 100 youth centers because there was no money.

  • I'm gonna call up the Ceos of Uber amazon, Hsbc and Barclays and say, guess what?

  • It's a win win situation.

  • You can provide money for these community centers, It's a great branding situation and you can give back to the communities, you're making all of your money for this has already been done with a young man by the name of Jamal Edwards.

  • Uh, he's a kid from Acton who started this big hip hop grime television channel called S.

  • P.

  • T.

  • V.

  • Or Youtube channel and I'm working with him.

  • He's in the manifesto as well.

  • He's already raised 100,000 from Google 100 from the Welcome Trust.

  • And we're gonna raise 100 million a year from these cold fronts and get it right in the community centres.

  • So these kids have something to do besides go into gangs, which right now it looks like an option.

  • So again, everything is through this lens of business and I think we run it like a business and think of it like a business and then also hold people accountable, you know, in the business world, if you don't do it right, you get eliminated, you go bankrupt.

  • When the mayor doesn't get right, it increases our taxes, it's Boris's fault and it's billions pounds and bailouts, which we pay for anyways.

  • So I see a lot of solutions, but I also see them never doing these things because they don't have to because one of them will get your vote every four or five years.

  • And that's what I think is a problem with this two party system.

  • Uh, there's also so much baggage with the two party system.

  • I don't have anybody telling me what to do.

  • I don't have a, uh, party to check on.

  • You don't have corporate donors to check with.

  • I'm just putting the best ideas out there.

  • So that's what that manifesto is just the best solutions for London.

  • Um, again, I love this city.

  • I'm a londoner.

  • I've been here 21 years seven this season, 14 years kids were born here from being buried here.

  • Yeah, that sounds weird.

  • I'm looking for the right graveyard so it's just my chance to give something back.

  • I hope so.

  • Okay, thank you.

  • Thank you.

  • I appreciate it.

  • We put a lot of time into it.

  • And again, even if I get hit by a bus tomorrow, hopefully it's not my bus, but I think the manifesto is it's a it's a blueprint.

  • Anybody can move forward and use as we go forward.

  • So I'm really proud of it.

  • It's been a crazy journey.

  • Um It's been difficult, but it's something we've been really proud of, so Mhm Great.

  • Yeah.

  • Thanks so much.

  • All right.

  • I appreciate you.

  • All right.

  • Thanks so much.

  • Hi, how are you?

Hey, how are you?
