Mayor Tells London's Public, THEY Should Police The Streets Themselves.


As governments around the world are advising their nationals to avoid coming to London, due to the high level of violent street crime, Sadiq Khan FINALLY bothers to notice London’s crimewave. 

He tells the public THEY should catch gangs themselves. 

The London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who is already under fire for posting on social media about more fashionable causes, has now addressed concerns over the 'increase in serious violent crime'

He’s now told Londoners they have "to be the eyes and ears of the police" and help catch these gangs themselves 
(Pity the Mayor, TfL, Met and CoL Police have treated the London Taxi trade so bad, they would have another 24,000 pairs of eyes out on the street)


Is this what we pay our taxes for.... Policing on the cheap?

Best friend of murdered teen Stephen Lawrence, Duwayne Brookes, said “Khan as Mayor is weak and ineffective”. 

The Mayor said: "Londoners have responsibility too.

"We (meaning you) have got to be the eyes and ears of the police - if you see something that you think is a criminal event, ring 999.

"We've got to help the police do their job in these difficult circumstances, keeping us safe."

Quite a hard call as you just don’t see officers in central London that often. Victims of crimes complain that calling 999 doesn’t mean anyone will turn up!

Khan went on to repeat the claims that the police don't have enough money. He said it would be "naive" to say that cuts had not had an effect.


This from the Mayor who sold off police buildings, closed police stations and cut numbers to finance the £bn cycle super highways. 

Mr Khan said: "Our police - and it's worth just saying this again, are cancelling their rest days, they are working overtime. 

Truth is there’s just not enough manpower anymore to keep citizens safe. The Mayor has again put profit before public safety.

Uber Apply For Patent To AI System That Could Be Used To Source Victims For Driver Predators

It’s been alleged that Uber may soon be patenting a system of artificial intelligence (AI) with facial recognition, which will distinguish whether the passenger is a regular rider or a licensing compliance office....a bit like their previous GreyBall system. 

They hope to get this under the radar by announcing the system will  identifying drunk passengers with artificial intelligence, according to information published on Thursday. 

They are saying with the technology, Uber could better tailor its ride options for customers, but opponents believe it’s another system to deceive the regulators. 

The patent application describes a system that learns how you typically use the Uber app, (as did GreyBall) so that it can identify unusual behaviour (like compliance perhaps)  

The system relies on an algorithm to weigh a variety of factors, including typos, how precisely a user clicks on links and buttons, walking speed, and how long it takes to request a ride. The time of day, and where a ride is requested may also be considered. In other words Uber will be spying on and collecting masses of data from its users. 

For example, it's a good bet that a person walking down a street at 1 a.m. Saturday in a nightlife district while clumsily typing probably isn't sober.

Uber driver have a history of serious sexual assault on drunk passengers. Will predators working for Uber who haven’t had proper DBS checks be using this system to source new victims? 

The patent also says that the service Uber provides to the user could change, as a result. More secrecy !!!

Uber states: Drivers may be warned of their passenger's state and riders in an especially unusual state may only be matched with drivers with relevant experience or training,.... but it’s generally felt that the system could well be used by  drivers with unsafe previous!!!

At best victims could be sourced by unscrupulous Uber drivers, to be charged unnecessary cleaning fees of up to £100. Uber has recent from for this practise used by drivers to inflate their earnings.

Mayor And TfL Told Plans To Pedestrianise Oxford Street, Scrapped By Westminster Council.

STATEMENT FROM BETTER OXFORD STREET CAMPAIGN 

The Future of Oxford Street

I am writing to update you about our plans to improve Oxford Street and the surrounding district.

As you know, two consultations have taken place in the past twelve months and after listening carefully to what local people have told us, we can now make Westminster City Council’s position absolutely clear.

What is very apparent is that the majority of Westminster residents who responded to the consultations did not support the proposals to pedestrianise Oxford Street. We also know that in the recent council elections, local people also essentially rejected pedestrianisation through the ballot box. Therefore, we believe there is a very strong democratic mandate that the pedestrianisation scheme that was under consideration is not what local people want. As a result, Westminster City Council has taken the pedestrianisation of Oxford Street off the table for good and we have informed the Mayor and TfL of our decision.

However, we do think that most people, ourselves included, feel that doing nothing is also not an option. We need to make the street and surrounding roads safer for everyone to accommodate the increase in people coming into the West End via the Elizabeth Line, which opens later this year. We also need to future-proof the Oxford Street District in a rapidly changing business and retail environment. We need to make sure that the experience of visiting Oxford Street and the surrounding area is fit for the future to ensure it maintains its crown as the nation’s high street for many, many years to come. Today’s news that House of Fraser will be closing their Oxford Street store only reaffirms our view that we have to help the retail industry to grow and evolve in line with changing consumer behaviour.

In doing this, we must also ensure that residents’ quality of life is enhanced with any improvement plans, with local amenity and cleaner air the absolute priority. For example, we want to continue to work with the Mayor of London, as many of the ways air quality can be improved are within his gift, such as the reduction in buses and introducing cleaner taxis. We will also ensure that the street and surrounding district is accessible and easy to navigate for everyone.

Moving forward, the council will now work on completely new proposals and come back to you after the summer break with some thoughts as to how we can proceed with improving the Oxford Street District. We also give you our absolute commitment that we will keep you informed at every stage and try to engage with as many people as possible throughout this process.

Only by working together can we help to ensure that we deliver a transformation of Oxford Street and surrounding district that is as inspiring for those who live, work and visit the area now as well as for future generations.

If you would like to be kept up to date with future Oxford Street updates could you please e-mail robincampbell@westminster.gov.uk to register your email address. If you have any questions please also direct them to Robin.

Totally Failing London Part 2 ..... Special Announcement From TfLTPH to clear Uber's Name.


TfL have said on a number of occasions that they've never shown grace or favour towards Uber, the eHail Minicab app that were last year refused a new licence on the grounds the were not fit and proper to hold a Private Hire operators licence.

This week we heard news of a really nasty attack on a woman and baby. The name of the alleged attacker was published by the police who wanted to interview the suspect. 

A few posts appeared on social media linking the name of the suspect with TFL's private hire licence checker web page. 

But the agency who say they have shown no grace or favour to a certain currently unlicensed Minicab firm, put out this statement first thing this morning. 

Their statement reads :
Police have confirmed that the accused involved in this alleged offence is not a licensed private hire driver in London.


To be honest....how would they know???...Uber have been shown to have 13,000 drivers with fake criminal record DBS certificates. Drivers have also shown up with fake passports, fake TfL PH licenses, fake medicals and yet TfLTPH appear to do nothing about this!
 
All this knowingly happened under the watchful eye of Leon 'the liar' Daniels, who was rewarded for this incompetence (which is still putting public safety at risk), with a performance related pay bonus of £640,000. 

Think TfL are Not Bias...Well Think Again!!!
When have TfLTPH ever contacted the media (TV, Radio or printed press) with a statement saying that the driver in a particular scenario was not a licensed London 'Taxi' driver. Virtually all TV new channels and almost every news agency have mistakenly called rapists, murders, terrorist 'Taxi Drivers', yet not a peep from Mike Brown's merry men at TfLTPH.



Can we now expect this type of statement the next time an alleged Minicab rapist is called a Taxi driver by the BBC ?

Can we expect this type of statement the next time the press refer to an Uber driver as... Taxi Driver ploughs into pedestrians on Exhibition Road??

TfL Totally Failing London. ... Should They Be Replaced As Transport Regulators? ...by Jason Byrne

Bank Junction being used as a racetrack by speeding cyclists using app which rates person best times on set routs. 


When it's used as a race track and there are no controls in place to stop cyclists speeding through, what did they expect ??  

The City Of London corporation and TfL are more interested in revenue collected from motorists than public safety. 

To say this scheme -where traffic, including Taxis are banned-was safety inspired is as much a lie as
* Yes they have a phone line
* No it’s not a meter
* On/off insurance is available
* We show no bias towards Uber 

Let’s hope this lady recovers as the next casualty may not be so lucky !! 

Just goes to prove yet again
TfL & CoL ARE NOT FIT
To regulate transport in London


EASY TARGETS 
As London is plagued by Machete wielding moped muggers, knife crime spiralling out of control, UberRape statistics reaching dizzy heights.....what do you think the Met are concentrating on....
