Battle Bus LIVE – The Problem With LTNs and Announcing The London Real Party

The London Borough of LewishamI had an amazing time in the London Borough of Lewisham, as well as broadcasting Live From The Digital Battle Bus on YouTube and Instagram! I talked a lot about the Mayor’s Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs), and announced the London Real Party. When the current Mayor introduced his controversial ‘London Streetspace Programme’ in May last year, right in the middle of the lockdown, he promised to “[give] the streets back to the people.” And yet just months later, the High Court ruled that he “took advantage of the pandemic” to push through his “radical changes” to our transport network, with no contribution from residents and other stakeholders. Here’s the reality. Both Islington and Wandsworth Councils had to alter or reverse LTN roads due to concerns from emergency services. Leaked emails also show London Fire Brigade having to “object” to Ealing Council’s proposals to use “immovable concrete blocks” in the road to create LTNs. The Metropolitan Police have said LTNs “could also create crime hot spots where criminals will use these types of closures to evade police”. So why is our Mayor pushing this agenda when our emergency services continue to highlight that they don’t work? To

Battle Bus LIVE – London Boroughs Tour

Brian Rose for Mayor of London We plan to bring a new level of transparency to the London mayoral race. To do this, we’ve built the UK’s first digital, campaign battle bus, fitted with a fully functional on-board multi-camera video studio, that will livestream broadcast everything on our journey. On Sunday January 24th at 10:49am, I was fined and banned from campaigning to be your next Mayor of London, despite the fact that we broke no laws and our digital battle bus is COVID-secure and the safest of its kind. By fining us, the Prime Minister of Britain and current Mayor of London are undermining democracy and not allowing free and fair elections to take place on May 6th. We are currently appealing the decision and promise to continue to campaign so we can give everyone in London an informed choice on who should become their elected leader. In the face of interference in the democratic process, I am committed to ensuring that the citizens of London have a choice when it comes to who is your next Mayor, and that is why I am back on the road. My Digital Battle Bus Tour and will be visiting the boroughs

The Story Of My Dad – The Conversation We Would All Love To Have With Our Father

Not many people get the opportunity to have a personal interview with members of their own family, but this is my opportunity to sit down with Dad and get to know more about his life. He was born in 1942 in Florence, Arizona in a hospital made of Adobe – mud bricks, to which people still use to this day. In fact, my grandad’s house was made of the same material. Growing up, both his parents, my grandparents, were farmers and lived in the south of America. During the depression, they came west and ended up in Arizona. His dad worked as a farmer while his mother worked in the courts. Times were tough. They didn’t have much, they had no real help, no services and it was all hazards and hardships. We talk today about how life has gotten easier for people and there isn’t that challenge anymore to test yourself or push through adversity and standing up for what you are fighting for. It seems to be an easier way of life. Yet, working on the farm helped me become a better person. Understanding the challenges of life and what it feels like to roll up your sleeves,
