We've recently seen videos on FaceBook and Twitter, showing TfL COs refusing to show Taxi drivers their authorisation ID cards when engaging in Badge Abpbe Bill checks. They argue that they don't have to.

Well we asked TfLTPH and it turns out they do. 
See TfLTPH reply below.

TrL's statements should now clear this issue up, straight from the horses mouth (so to speak) 

If a CO wants to check your Badge/ Bill/Insurance, they must first show their ID (not badge). It is a card that authorises them to carry out the document examination.

We've got lots of drivers sharing licenses, the badge aint worth jack, hardly anyones doing the knowledge now. And lets not forget all the brooming and cash only going on. If your machines not working, go and get it fixed. In case you haven't noticed our punters are using another service...

the only time that half of them will wake-up & see the reality that's under their noses, is when the Bailiffs come to repossess their cabs & houses

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was
wondering what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a
blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% positive.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Appreciate it
