Would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved with Taxi Leaks. The amount of information you put out in a week is equal to what you may find in other trade publications in a month.

No wonder you are leading the trade in the media field.

Well done Jimmy and all who put this blog together.

Richard Masset should be standing on the roof of Camden Town Hall shouting stop this madness.
