Brian Rose's Real Deal – London Is Now Billions Of Pounds In Debt & You Will Pay – How Our Soon To Be Ex-Mayor Is Driving This City Into The Ground
Brian Rose’s Real Deal
Join me as I take an in-depth look at the history of the London Mayorship and how both Labour and Conservative parties racked up over £18 billion of debt in the past 20 years.
I also explain how the current Mayor’s poor fiscal policies have led to his latest £493 million worth of cuts to crucial public services like our fire departments, police forces, and green initiatives.
Unfortunately, our current Mayor’s solution is to blame the government for his mistakes is not working, with one of his Conservative colleagues in City Hall, Susan Hall, stating that:
“His gambit is that by playing the part of a ‘poor Mayor’ and publicly calling for ministers to step in and bail him out again, Londoners will not notice that he is the one choosing to drop the axe on the vital services that keep our city safe.”
But there is more.
Our current Mayor has also requested an additional almost £30 billion from the government, most of which is for housing, where he has failed to build even half of the 116,000 affordable homes he promised by 2022. In fact after 3 years, Sadiq Khan has only started 34,515 homes.
The biggest conclusion is this: our current Mayor has never been qualified to run an organisation like City Hall with 27,000 staff which if treated as a corporation would be one of the top 10 companies listed on the London Stock Exchange.
And why would he? He has absolutely zero experience with:
Which is why we need to elect a Mayor that does have these crucial skills and has spent the past 20 years in London doing these exact things.
As Your Next Mayor I will lead this city in a new direction and Get London Back To Work with my following policies:
- Creating a six month post-lockdown “congestion charge holiday” by removing this prohibitive taxation in order to promote visits to the city and boost the economy
- Creating a six month post-lockdown “business rates holiday” by removing business rates across the board for SMEs in greater London
- Stimulating key sectors with expanded financial packages, specifically restaurants, cafes, nightclubs, retail and the hotel sector
- Encouraging the return of office workers to the world’s financial capital by speaking with the top global financial service companies about how to safely bring back 25% of their office workers.
- Implementing new science-based protocols for retail establishments to deal with Covid-19 responsibly but still stay in business.
- Safely opening up our theatres, museum, concert arenas, and stadiums
- Allowing outdoor seating and use of streets for all retail and hospitality businesses in London
- Getting our children back to school which will promote all of the surrounding and dependent businesses
Let me know your thoughts
This week I was particularly keen to hear your thoughts on:
- Is it fair that you the taxpayer funds governments that go over budget?
- Do you think it’s fair to increase congestion charges and raise children’s fares?
- Is it worth the economic damage and why?
- Do we need better leadership and a new solution?
