I bumped into Ken Livingston in Waitrose earlier this week. Ex Mayor Ken had not heard of the Save The Black Taxi group...but believe me, he knows all about us now.
Ken didn't mind talking about the predicament the trade presently finds itself in and said Uber would not have been licensed by TfL in his time as Mayor and that he definitely would have banned them in line with other European cities.
Ken also said he couldn't understand why Boris and Cameron have let this situation happen, adding that there must be an underlying reason for this.
Where does Boris get off, backing the London Taxi trade one minute, then in the next breath say there's nothing he can do about Uber?
