What is it about Uber, that makes TfL bend over backwards to support them as a fit and proper company to hold a Private Hire Operators Licence in London?
This company has carried on operating in European cities where it has been ban, with no regard for being compliant with the rule of law in that country.
How can TfL advertise this company on their website without it being a conflict of interest?
TfL say the Uber Advert meets their in-house guidelines!
It may fulfil in house 'guidelines', nonetheless it's completely inappropriate for a public authority that (in the case of Taxi and PH licensing) exercises a quasi judicial function, to carry material from a licensee.
No other UK regulator or licensing authority carries' any such advertising and an internet search has found none anywhere in the world that so do!
TfL not only have to be beyond reproach in these matters, but perhaps just as important, they need to be seen to be so.
Would the Civil Aviation Authority carry a link to Ryanair on their website, or the rail regulator carry one for the Heathrow Express?
Of course not, neither should TfL.
