Yesterday, in broad daylight, armed police stopped an alleged Uber driver. Ripping open the doors they pointed automatic weapons at the driver, who was pulled out, handcuffed and arrested. Also handcuffed and arrested was a passenger in the white Hyundai Ioniq.
Passers by were amazed that this operation took place so openly on an extremely busy Camden High Street.
This was obviously a planned operation going by the number of heavily armed police and Met support officers...but why was it carried out in such a crowded thoroughfare ?
Why was this operation not commuted to a safer more secluded location?
One question that’s on every Taxi drivers lips “is this another one of Helen Chapman’s 13,000 Uber drivers who had fake criminal record check DBS certificates, that were swept under the carpet by TfL?”
Apparently, it's back up now, but yesterday drivers were enquiring, why had the details of this minicab suddenly disappeared from the licence checker on the TfL website.
TAXI LEAKS EXTRA BIT :
- Automatic assault weapons found in Uber on the Aldwych
- Uber driver Samurai sword attack in the Mall
- Attempted beheading of a stranger by Uber driver in Leyton underground station
- 9 people hospitalised when an Uber driver ploughed into them on exhibition Road
- Untold hard stops by the police on Uber drivers carrying class a drugs
Just when are TfL going to put a stop on this madness. Most of the incidents above have been covered up by the press....Why?
FIT AND PROPPER ???
Uber who are currently coming to the end of a 15 month probationary license have just been found guilty and fined £96,000 in Westminster magistrates court, for allowing drivers to use uninsured vehicles and failing to keep proper records.... any other private hire company would have incurred and immediate revocation of the license and the Private Hire Vehicles Act 1998....but not Uber who appear to have a ‘Special Relationship’ with Mike ‘on side Brown.
