There have been 32 rapes by Uber drivers in a year and still heartless Sadiq Khan keeps handing out the licences. The rape figures started to soar when Osbo was handling TfL and Uber, and it is alleged his cheery comment was “Don’t tell passengers! They will stop taking minicabs! “
The Sun reported: “The California-based firm has been hit with a string of sexual assault claims in the US and it was banned in New Delhi, India, after a passenger was raped.”
Eleven victims died from knife crime in 16 days, reported the London Standard on 11th May 2017. There has been a shift revealed by statistics which shows that only a quarter of knife carriers are now linked to gangs. This compares to 10 deaths a year from 2008/9 and 2010/11 under Boris Johnson.
Our brilliant police believe more young people are now carrying knives for differing reasons, including status, criminality and increasingly for self-protection. Continue reading
During his Mayoral campaign, Sadiq Khan, then one of Labour’s candidates for London mayor, said he would suspend Uber immediately if it emerged just a single driver did not hold genuine paperwork or was not properly insured. Desperate to be Mayor, Sadiq talked tough! He, Sadiq, would protect black cab drivers and kick Uber out of the capital if they put one foot out of line!Straight talking black cab drivers were about to get a painful and entirely undeserved lesson in politics. Far from being their White Knight, Sadiq has proved to be five and a half feet of pain in the ass shoved into a 4 foot sack. Continue reading

Uber are taking TfL to court over the regulations instigated by Boris Johnson, including an English test. Uber is arguing that the English test is discriminatory and contravenes the Equality Act. Anyone normal might think that it is entirely reasonable in such a responsible job to expect drivers to speak good English. Not so Uber, whose standards are the lowest imaginable. Continue reading
Until now, minicab drivers have had a free ride as far as regulations are concerned. George Osborne, bosom buddy of Travis Kalanick, the Uber boss, made sure that mini cab applications were rushed through with the minimum of fuss, while black cab drivers have regulations and security checks up the ying yang.
Osbo was the Uber villain, but now he’s gone
No more. The regulations worked out by previous Mayor Boris Johnson are coming into force and Osbo is gone. Continue reading
The situation in the cab trade is now so bad that it is open knowledge that Sajid Javid and the Chancellor are blatantly allowing Uber to ignore TfL regulations and break the rules. Their attitude to complaints from black cab drivers is brazenly unapologetic. Might makes right. Once again, the Tories, or at least, George Osborne, is dumping the working man in favour of crony capitalism.TfL is about to reassess the fare for black cabs and there is huge concern amongst black cab drivers that the decision will just be another way of kicking black cabs out of London. The British are renowned for their love of fair play. Black cabs have tried their utmost to play fair over this, if only the government would play fair, but they cheated! Continue reading
