Ever Wondered Why The Statistics On Minicab Related Sexual Assaults, Including Rapes, Were Taking So Long To Make Public ?

Ever wondered why the FOI requests for minicab related sexual assault and rape statistics were taking so long to collate ?

It is our opinion at Taxi Leaks that TfL are trying to water down the effect of the statistic by removing any driver who wasn't actually signed on to an operator or app at he time of the reported attack.
i.e. The driver was illegally touting outside a club or bar.

It is also our opinion that any driver licensed or not, who was not signed on to an operator or app, or using a licensed vehicle, will be left from this list.

We believe this has been made perfectly clear in this letter from Neil Hasset, customer correspondence manager for surface operations TfL.

Support for the action being organised by the United Cabbies Group on the 8th of November is growing.


Comrades, the United Cabbies Group have balloted their membership for support of direct action.
The RMT has been officially notified and in the interest of solidarity, the branch committee are proposing a united front with UCG and support the action.

The RMT have consistently argued that TFL have breached PHV licensing conditions regarding Uber. As the prima facia of the application is plying for hire, the RMT therefore  support the initiative that seeks to expose TFL's failing to exercise due diligence.

In solidarity
Lewis Norton
Branch secretary

#SaveTaxi and Action For Cabbies wish to make it known that we fully and unequivocally support the UCG's call for a demonstration on 8 November 2016 and their request for a public inquiry into TFL.

TFL did do due diligence. Ask Mason how many times he visited Martin Cordel and Co. Also ask him why he would visit the trades largest accountants?
I wonder what information he was there to ascertain and what was given to him?

I don't beleive Martin or anyone at Cordells would have given him any personal information, why would they?

Time might be better spent rinsing out what Daniels, Korski and Uber discussed.

Let's get that parliamentary enquiry up and running.

Mason is small fry.

So why would Mason go to Cordels offices. You're in denial if you think he went there for tea and buscuits. The blabber mouths claim no due dilligence was done - I say there was...

Mason licensed Uber he's not small fry, he's the linch pin in all of this.

Tunnel vision!

I know why Mason was checking-up

he wanted to be sure that, tfl's published projection for our average EARNINGS - NB NOT takings - for 2016, of £31,460, weren't on the low side

please see my breakdown of tfl's figures, which were posted-up, as the 4th COMMENT, on the TAXILEAKS blog of February 9th.

Based on the given figure of £30,000 Per Anum,and taking into consideration the average London Taxi drivers takings are down as much as 50% the loss to the trade in earnings is in excess of £300 million a year. No due dilligence, my arse!

4:15pm - if takings are down 50%, that means our profits (because our overheads / expenses, are at best, the same), are down 70%

the Teflon higher archy at tfl, must be laughing their heads off at us
