A victory for free enterprise! Let the market decide how low the prices can go with Uber pouring millions in to 'disrupt the market' and tax credit system supporting the drivers and their families. Well done to everyone.

What an absolute knob. All you created is a very unhappy workforce who do not appreciate the job they are doing. As a yb jobs are getting broomed on the rank all the time because no one wants a local after constantly waiting for hours in end.Thanks to asehole politicians.

Phv driver I am now working far to many hours to earn a living, this weekend had to pull my fare out of a touts toyota, my mate did this a few weeks back and had a knife pulled on him, so for me to earn enough to pay my rent and eat I have to risk my liberty, because I commit the offence of wreck less driving every day, because I am in this car for 90+ hours a week, I think old school phv , add lee , YB, and GB should get together and block every bridge in this city every week, the gloves are of gents we stand together and fight or we all die

Roll up roll up, come one and all. The streets are paved with tax credits and in work benefits. All you need is a dodgy letter, dodgy insurance (don't worry you can always cancel it later) and blacked out windows. Roll up roll up.

4.02PM He's taking the piss. If your tax return is simple and uncomplicated you can file it online yourself. Or find someone local, they will charge you half the amount. Cordel ain't that good anyway. I have known loads of drivers that have used him and he cost them money.
Be lucky.
