Is this Leon's Daniels career ending moment?....From I'm Spartacus
A senior officer at TfL the supposedly impartial licensing authority counselling an operator to amend its PR to disguise what is acknowledged by this correspondence and the phrase 'immediate PH market' in a TfL approved report, all intended to muddy the water and protect one PH operator that's well connected politically whilst destroying others and creating a tax avoiding, low grade sweatshop.
It's like the clerk of the court whispering 'say this' to a defendant at a magistrates court, it strikes at the very heart of probity in the conduct of public affairs.
It's simple really and a large body of case law supports IF YOU DONT ACCEPT PRE BOOKINGS YOU ARE DE FACTO PLYING FOR HIRE!
We have the evidence of our own eyes at Eurostar as LTPH stand idle whilst PH breach their licence conditions also replicated all over this former fair city.
TfL has danced on the head of a pin at recent transport committee meetings and this just adds to the body of evidence that TfL is biased, it also nullifies the recent PH regulatory decision at the board and that process needs to go back for revision ASAP.
So the TfL commisioner needs to act today in regards to this revelation and the GLA need to appoint a QC to take statements from all concerned
Big question for the trade is will the LTDA join the rest of the orgs calling for this or will the board ambitions preclude that?
Remember we can only read what FOI releases, all those coffee shop get togethers are off the record.
It ain't Hillsborough or Orgreave but it's still a scandal that endangers your livelihood and the travelling public
