Vote Of No Confidence In Leon Daniels Plus, Letter To Editor : Large Cracks Appearing In TfL's Armour.

Leon Daniels Caught Assisting UBER to word their communications to the public so as to mislead.

Leon Daniels is no stranger to controversy, in fact we in the UCG have long had no confidence in his ability to conduct his role as the Director of surface transport strategy.

He will have been instrumental in the chaos and gridlock that London has become, he believes that Private Hire can purchase "On-Off" hire and reward insurance, we checked with the MIB and no such policy exists.

He insists that Ubers Meter, isn't a meter and appointed a barrister to fight like the sugar plum fairy in court to prove he done nothing wrong when Uber were licensed and TfL never even bothered to check it's operating methodology, so we have the absurd and ridiculous ruling that a device used for time and distance measurement isn't a meter.

He told the GLA that Uber were only required to have a landline on the day they applied for a license as an operator. Which frankly is just laughable if it wasn't so serious.

The process of removing John Mason was started by a vote of no confidence by the Private Hire industry, now it's our turn to remove Leon Daniels by starting the process with a vote of no confidence

We call on the new Mayor that "If Leon Daniels is not removed from post 7 days after this vote of no confidence is submitted, the UCG will bring London to a standstill"

Letter To Editor: From Winston Long .

So yesterday was interesting! 

We now have two bits of ammunition, firstly obviously the emails! 
And also the Twitter convo with Jackie Ryder and TFL.

 If anyone missed this it was TFL saying they will start requiring h/r insurance from PH at point of licensing from.... Wait for it.... 31st May!!! 

Plus this is only for new licensees!!
Believe it or not, they haven't decided a date when they will require existing drivers to have it in place. 

All this needed was an email to testing stations to implement immediately.
Today, we have a new Mayor and he will have a huge workload, I don't imagine for one minute we will be anywhere near the top of the pile on his list of to do's.

So here's my point... 
Why don't we put ourselves at the top of that list? 

For once TfL have a large crack in their armour so let's exploit it.

Here comes the wishful thinking part! 

Imagine if all the orgs (LTDA, LCDC, RMT, Unite, UCG, HADTU, Suburban Drivers Alliance) sat down together with the SaveTaxi girls, Dads Defending Daughters, The Mayfair Mob and all together backed one major demo, 10-15k drivers plus wives/partners all with one message, 
'demanding a public inquiry into TFL and the immediate resignation of Daniels', one clear message! 

And if we don't get what we want, then we do it again, and again... 

And if the orgs can't/won't sit round a table together just a commitment to promote the demo jointly
