  • - Like vlogging and stuff.

  • All right, in field.

  • - Hello, how you doing?

  • It's your place.

  • We're invading your space here today.

  • - (indistinct traffic noise)

  • Good, you following any of our stuff?

  • - Sure.

  • I have actually on Instagram.

  • - Really?

  • - Yes

  • I'm quite into politics myself.

  • - Oh you are?

  • - Yes.

  • I was a

  • - Really?

  • Congratulations.

  • - Thank you.

  • - Are you still in politics?

  • - Uh I'm not into it but I do follow it.

  • Yes and I do actually have some questions for you.

  • - Really, perfect!

  • I'm so glad I came across you.

  • - What's your name?

  • Everett. You work here, here, Billy here.

  • Hey, what's up Billy.

  • Here. Are you filming me?

  • - Yeah

  • - All right, you can film me, it's okay.

  • Now tell me, I'm curious.

  • - I actually want to know, you know, I think you

  • created your own, started your own party?

  • - Correct.

  • Yeah. So I want to know what your agenda is and what your

  • what you're imposing you can do

  • for London because previous mayor of London was Boris.

  • - Yes.

  • - So I don't really support for Boris.

  • I think those are Sadists.

  • So I do want to support honestly, the next Mayor of London.

  • So I do want to know your agenda, what you're...

  • - Okay, great.

  • Great question.

  • - What you're promising us!

  • So, first of all

  • I'm not in politics is the first time I've ever

  • considered running for office.

  • I've lived in London for 21 years.

  • I have a funny accent.

  • I'm actually, born in the States.

  • But I'm a Londoner. I got my citizenship in '07.

  • My kids were born here.

  • I've been in business for 30 years.

  • I've had a show called London real

  • for the past 10 years, we broadcast conversations

  • on YouTube to probably 1,000 really cool people.

  • And about six months ago, I was looking

  • at London and I thought these people are running our city

  • into the ground.

  • And I love this city. Like I said I have children

  • in this city, and it made me angry.

  • I thought, I better do something about this.

  • So I started researching what was wrong with London?

  • Londoners care about four things, in my opinion.

  • They care about their jobs,

  • and their businesses being open more than anything.

  • They care about knife crime on the streets

  • which is horrendous proportions.

  • They care about transport,

  • nobody wants to pay congestion charges

  • and high transport charges.

  • They care about housing.

  • Well, I don't know about you, but my housing costs

  • are too expensive.

  • So those are the four things I've focused

  • on, everything through the lens of business, you know.

  • In the business world, you have to hold people accountable

  • or you go bankrupt.

  • You can't ask for billions of bail outs.

  • You can't blame Boris Johnson if something doesn't work out.

  • You have to do it right.

  • So first the economy I want to get London back to work

  • and rebuild the economy proactively!

  • And that means I want to abolish the congestion

  • charge for the rest of the year.

  • And get as many people in London as possible

  • we want to zero out business rates.

  • So a place like this

  • doesn't have to pay tax on top of barely making it.

  • And I want to hold something called the great celebration.

  • August 31 days, street fairs during the day music festivals

  • at night, 20 million people in London like a big event.

  • - If we can.

  • - Yeah we do it safely, safely as well.

  • But like we crushed the Olympics,

  • were you there in 2012? I was here, they crushed it.

  • And I'm talking about a big event,

  • like the great exhibition in 1851 brought people all

  • over the world here.

  • Tens of millions of people that ran for profit.

  • So that's what I want to do with the economy.

  • I really want to be proactive to build the economy.

  • And get people back to work!

  • I mean, there's safe ways of working.

  • Like you guys are doing.

  • I don't like locking down for the sake of locking down.

  • I think our leaders need to have innovations about how

  • we get back to work.

  • So that's the big one.

  • Knife crime is absolutely killing us.

  • Like it's just, it's horrible to watch.

  • It's a shame.

  • It's a shame we need two things.

  • - To be honest, knife crime,

  • I'm from Scotland, you should know the area pretty well,

  • it is disgusting.

  • - Yeah.

  • It really is.

  • - I was in Croydon in a couple days ago

  • and we have a charity for lives, not knives.

  • There was a woman there at Alisa,

  • and she's like dedicated her life to this.

  • It's like terrible.

  • I think you need two ways to solve knife crime.

  • And I've spoken with senior community leaders,

  • senior members of the metropolitan police.

  • First one, more officers on the street period.

  • But no one knows how to pay for it.

  • I do.

  • - But do you think more officers on the street

  • is gonna help us some how?

  • - Bear with me, I'll tell you why.

  • You should be dubious at first.

  • So two things, first of all, many more officers

  • on the street and we need more money

  • for communities and I know how we can do both.

  • So first of all, officers on the street.

  • First of all it's ma massively underfunded.

  • There's not enough officers on the street

  • which means they can't train their officers

  • which means stop and search has done really poorly right now

  • because they're not trained

  • to the communities because they don't have enough officers.

  • So actually more officers

  • on the street gives each officer two days

  • per month to better train the officers.

  • And don't digitise the officers.

  • I'm not done, one second.

  • But, officers on the streets don't solve knife crime.

  • If you're not investing in the communities.

  • And what would you expect

  • some of these young children to do?

  • Our community centres have been defunded

  • by the current mayor, he's fired youth workers,

  • so we need to put money directly in the community centres.

  • This is where my business hat goes on.

  • We call up the CEOs.

  • I can call up the CEO of Amazon,

  • Barclay's, Uber, HSBC, and say, guess what?

  • It's your time to win.

  • You're going to help us put money right

  • into the community centres.

  • So I'm working with a guy named Jamal Edwards.

  • Do you know him?

  • He did SBTV this big grind YouTube channel

  • that he built about eight years ago.

  • He's done this, an active

  • he's raised a couple hundred thousand pounds

  • from Google and a couple other corporates.

  • And we're going to take it to the next level.

  • So 250 community centres, a hundred million pounds

  • per year to give these kids something else to do

  • from 3:30 PM until 8:30.

  • When their kids, when their parents come home.

  • - What do you think would be the best to

  • do what you're saying?

  • Give them something to do.

  • What can you give them?

  • - We teach these kids entrepreneurism.

  • You know, they like, even when I do someone said

  • you'd be a good person to go show up because I would.

  • I mean, I built a YouTube channel from nothing.

  • I'm a little older than them, but well

  • I built a business from that out of nothing.

  • And I think these kids see these gangs,

  • and they see the flashy clothes.

  • I mean Eliza from knives at night

  • she said "these days, you have to wear Gucci.

  • You can't even wear it anything else if you're in the gang,

  • you're showing off." But it's a losing proposition,

  • because you go to jail, and you don't ever make

  • the money that it implies.

  • Why not teach them entrepreneurship?

  • Teach them about health and wellness,

  • teach them about all sorts of internships.

  • We can do that with these community centres

  • but don't ask the mayor for the budget.

  • They'll never find him.

  • That's why I want to get it straight from the corporates.

  • So I spent a lot of time thinking about this stuff.

  • It frustrates me because these things aren't being solved.

  • But right now we could find the money

  • for the police officers.

  • We can find the money for the community

  • straight from corporates, and that will actually

  • do something about our knife problem.

  • The current mayor is doing nothing about it.

  • - He isn't.

  • It's getting worse every year.

  • Every year, it gets worse.

  • You see his campaign now for your vote.

  • He's not saying anything about knives, nothing.

  • That's, that's, that's an insult to all of us.

  • I think.

  • So, anyway, tell me what you think.

  • I'm here to listen.

  • I came all the way to ... to listen.

  • - My personal opinion, I think more officers

  • on the street isn't going to help them because even

  • if more people apply for it- I personally have

  • applied for the met myself as well. I got turned away.

  • Personally because of my tattoos. That was-

  • - They probably don't have the budget either.

  • - Coming from a suburban area, myself,

  • people don't like seeing many officers on the street,

  • they get more annoyed about it, people that are

  • involved with crime, my area is full of crime, people

  • in gangs, I mean-

  • - But what if they were trained with the communities.

  • You know, what, if they had more time and more budget?

  • - I think more opportunities for the young people.

  • - I agree, that's why we want them in communities.

  • - More than, because they see the police as a threat,

  • as you know that there has been police crime

  • against the community.

  • I guess the public as well.

  • Lately, especially that's the only thing that's

  • going all around the news.

  • So I don't think that's going to be of any help,

  • to be honest.

  • I think more to include them into society.

  • - Yeah.

  • - Like more like youth clubs,

  • apprenticeships that they can apply

  • for, people that have no other opportunity and

  • think the only opportunity for them is gang life.

  • They need to be supported with other opportunities,

  • saying look, you don't need to do this.

  • You can apply for this. You can do this.
