Private Hire Feeder Park...A Terminal Problem? I'm Spartacus.

For those in the trade years ago  who thought a phone on the wall of the local supermarket to a minicab firm wasn't a threat, just look what's happened since!

We now have Private Hire looking to have their own feeder park at LAP aided and abetted by HAL. 

Well it's probably not a problem if they only wait for an allocated booked job as they could use the short term car park anyhow.

Of course that's not the intention, they want to form an unlawful rank to wait unbooked to then respond to an e hail by touching a screen in the terminal etc, of course once this works our old friend Hendy will roll it out in every Network Rail station up and down the country, followed by TfL at every night tube stop, O2 etc etc.

If we had plying for hire(PFH) defined this could not happen.

HAL have already amended the bye laws, this seemed to have been bypassed by those from the trade who HAL choose to meet.

So wake up all, get prepared for the final reckoning.

I'm Spartacus.

Editorial Comment:
We've seen airports around the country go over to a preferred private hire service, at the expense of the local Hackney Carriage trades.

We was always told "it can't happen at Heathrow, there are bye laws which wont allow it. But in the background, while we aren't watching, the bye laws have been changed.
