C.A.B- Cabbies Against Boris- PRESS RELEASE-UPDATE

A London Taxi ‘Go Slow’ will take place at 2pm, on Tuesday 9th September to protest against the Mayor of London’s improper and unlawful Taxi Age Limit.

The Mayor will appear before the Environmental Audit Committee on Wednesday this week to explain why his air quality strategies have failed, which includes the London Taxi Age Limit.


Scientific testing has shown that the new taxis create more pollution than the older taxis which the Mayor has needlessly scrapped, at great expense to taxi drivers.


Drivers are the worst affected by the toxic pollution in London and the Mayor has not implemented a single effective strategy to reduce emissions.

 

Support is confirmed by the London Cab Drivers Club, the United Cabbies Group and the RMT so it is hoped that members of all trade groups will be making their voices heard on Tuesday.

Well done Dave Davis, we are also aware from a well placed source at the heart of TfL that all this publicity and questioning is beginning to have an effect.

Note they keep on putting up lesser minions to 'face the music' as senior staff at TfL head for the bunker. That's a sure sign they are under pressure.

Ah facing the music now

A TFL staffer who left earlier this year.. tells the anecdote of the Senior female Manager who was asking if anyone could teach her how to "Twerk" at the
CSEP Christmas party last year..

She knows who she is !:-))

Why wont the LTDA support tomorrow's C-A-B demo ???

The LTDA and in particular Steve McNamara claim that C-A-B information is flawed,but wont go on record to say what!

If the LTDA are so clued up on the Taxi Age Limit and Mayors Cleaner Air Stategy,and in the light of the Defra report that categorically proves the Mayor lied...

WHY haven't the LTDA acted on their members best interests and challenged TfL on this corruptly introduced policy???

AND WHY WONT THEY SUPPORT TOMMOROWS ACTION HIGHLIGHTING JOHNSON AND TfL BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE????

THE LTDA ARE A F#C#I#G DISGRACE!!!
