Tim Fenton Blows The Lid Off TfL Part 2: Why Downing Street Panicked!

The pressing of the panic button by driver and rider matching service Uber, representatives of the Foreign Office, and those within Downing Street when Transport for London looked likely to take enforcement action on the basis that Uber’s operation in the capital was illegal, was detailed on Zelo Street yesterday. Now it can be revealed exactly what caused the panic - and the brazen attempt to side with Uber.


On December 10, 2013, TfL officials Helen Chapman and Garrett Emmerson were in receipt of communication from lawyers Clifford, Chance. The action had been prompted not by the taxi trade, but the Licensed Private Hire Car Association. Clifford, Chance had, at the end of the previous month, made the concerns of the LPHCA clear to TfL. So Ms Chapman and Emmerson should have known what was coming down the track.

The letter goes through the Uber model, booking process, fare calculation and much more, and in some detail, but the conclusions made can be put directly. These asserted that the law was being broken on a number of counts - nine, in fact, in all.

I keep reading about how tfl facilitated uber illegaly operating in London. Surely one or more of the orgs should be representing all london taxi drivers and pursuing tvl through the courts for yesrs of lost earnings. Hit them where it hurts, financially and get due recompense. Simon
