Letter To Taxi Leaks From Rob : I Wonder If Helen Chapman Is Sleeping Easily In Her Bed Tonight ?


I wonder if Helen Chapman is sleeping easily in her bed tonight? 

Almost thirteen thousand criminal record checks still to be completed on Uber drivers with alleged fake DBS certificates. 

Didn't Helen intimate she couldn't live with herself if checks on licensed hackney carriage drivers should fail to detect the presence of undesirable characteristics. 

How is this litany of failure to be halted ?

Sexual assaults, criminally negligent driving, highly dubious business practices, indifference from government tax authorities, probable financial bribery in many spheres of authority and so on and so on. 

The TfL office in charge of Taxi and private hire is an utterly worthless organisation. 
It's dragged our trade into the sewer. It seems to be a plague of pestilence emanating from America.

Such a disregard for decent business and human ethics, their desperation, a mantra of money /profit at all costs,  seems to run through so many of those gig/tech style companies. 

It won't be until the affluent upper middle classes experience this level of absurdity and diabolical dishonesty and lack of ethics that things may change.
Or a sense of 'stop this insane carousel of profit and to hell with a sense of decency '. 

Do we have to wait till someone’s wife/daughter/sister/mother is raped and murdered before action is taken?

Taxi Leaks Extra Bit :

In a reply to an FOI received earlier this week, TfL admitted they haven't bothered to contact all the 13,000 Uber drivers thought to have fake DBS certificates. 

They  admitted they have only written to just 2,621 private hire drivers, saying that they will need to obtain a new enhanced DBS check through GB group.

There has been no mention of any revocations, or suspensions while this process is ongoing. 

Later this week we heard 5 Uber drivers -Michael Julien, 50, Dan-Alexandru Pasat, 29, Kamlesh Sagoo, 62, Ibrahim Tekagac, 35, and Mihai Toader, 32- were convicted of fraud and theft. All received prison sentences 4 were suspended sentences. 

These drivers are still registered on the TfL licence checker, as private hire drivers.

So, that means not only do we have approx 10,300 Uber drivers who have been driving -at least since January- with fake DBS results, we also have convicted Uber drivers, some with prison records out there driving the public. 

Let's also not forget about the Exhibition Road/Uber driver incident....9 injured...and it's all been hushed up???
Trouble is, some people actually know what happened and it will come out. Remember "#BillGate" Helen?


Helen, what does an Uber Driver have to do to get their licensed revoked. Are TfLTPH so scared of Uber’s legal team, that you would over look these incidents?

City Hall is labour now & being a female manager Helen is a desirable demographic & most likely despite her catalogue of disasters will ever be shifted.
It would be interesting to know how Blake was ousted but Helen not?
Rumour is that Val is a fan.

When put against the backdrop of record bonuses for TFL managers / 80% final salary pension / 1400 redundancies you realise how rotten and out of touch TFL is.
A root and branch clearout is the only way London can start moving again.

This is a complete disgrace. TFL are responsible for public safety and PH licensing they have failed On booth counts. Why are the trade org not shouting from the rooftops. If the trade org spent moor time on this instead of their disgraceful behaviour on the social media (see twitter the last couple of days) this trade has some good friends in the media James o,Brian LBC for one theirs others why can’t the trade org work as one for the good of their members and the trade. Still I’m only a driver what do drivers know any way?

Only people with a conscience would have problem sleeping knowing the consequences of their major errors.

Don't blame this hapless individual, here's why.
From Wiki,
'The Peter principle is a concept in management theory formulated by educator Laurence J. Peter and published in 1969. It states that the selection of a candidate for a position is based on the candidate's performance in their current role, rather than on abilities relevant to the intended role. Thus, employees only stop being promoted once they can no longer perform effectively, and "managers rise to the level of their incompetence'.

This is a structural problem in many hierarchies, then add a bit of TFL tick box selection.
This poor girl has simply been promoted way out of her depth. Any replacement on the balance of probability will be the same.
Can we get a peek at these peoples CVs, what degree? where from? Its evident this lot are not the brightest bunch.
