If anyone was in any doubt about the extent of the corruption they should now see it clearly.
Lebedev the ex KGB owner of the Standard has appointed Bullingdon boy Osborbne as his editor.
The Standard (along with most of the main stream media ) has failed to report any negative information about Uber or TFL.
Osborne has recently been ‘gifted’ a lucrative job with BlackRock who have $250 million in Uber shares, after Osborne used his position as Chancellor and personal connections to persuade his Bullingdon buddy Boris Johnson to ‘Lay Off Uber’ which is exactly what Johnson and TFL did.
Boris Johnson also publicly claimed that Osborne had blocked any attempts made to the Government to cap Private Hire Numbers, which would have obviously negatively impacted his indirect paymasters Uber.
The Mayor of London has Statutory powers to initiate Legislation, which could have capped Private Hire Licenses.
Both Johnson and Khan have failed to take any action, even though they have the power to do so.
Lebedev was also a close ally of Boris Johnson and gave him full media support during his Mayoral Election Campaigns and throughout his Mayoralty, with a policy of reporting no negative news about Johnson.
Lebedev flew Johnson and his family by Private Jet to his luxury villa in Italy for holidays.
The absolute and utter corruption will continue until there is a Public Inquiry, which is the ONLY mechanism to expose it.
The current Taxi APPG is a scam set up by Sadiq Khans friend Wes Streeting.
This is the description about APPGs’s on the Gov website
''APPGs are informal cross-party groups that have no official status within Parliament. They are run by and for Members of the Commons and Lords, though many choose to involve individuals and organisations from outside Parliament in their administration and activities.''
Wes Streeting is Khans mate ; he won’t do anything to expose him or the TFL corruption .

''My friend Sadiq Khan understands what life is like for the majority of people in London. I think his election would make a massive difference to issues like affordable housing, transport and tackling crime.
But I've become increasingly concerned about the campaign against him. It is the worst sort of dog whistle politics and today our Prime Minister engaged in it.
I'm proud of London, proud of its diversity and proud to represent people of all races, faiths and backgrounds. London is better than this nasty campaign against Sadiq.''
The entire purpose of the APPG which has been set up and led by Khans mate Wes, is to make people think that something is being done.
IT IS NOT!
ITS YET ANOTHER SCAM. ITS A DELAYING TACTIC TO STOP ANY PROTEST
ANYONE WHO THINKS THIS IS A GENUINE ATTEMPT TO EXPOSE THE CORRUPTION NEEDS TO READ THE FACTS.
ANYONE WHO THINKS THAT SPENDING TIME ENTERTAINING AND ENGAGING WITH THE APPG WILL RESULT IN URGENT ACTION IS DELUDED.
THE ONLY WAY ANYTHING WILL HAPPEN IS IF THE CORRUPTION IS EXPOSED BY A JUDICIAL PUBLIC INQUIRY.
THE ONLY WAY THIS WILL HAPPEN IS IF THERE IS DAILY PROTESTS.
THERE IS NO NEED FOR NEGOTIATION ;THE ONLY RESULT NEEDED IS A PUBLIC INQUIRY
