TfL have also invented a completely new term "immediate Private Hire". Does this refer to a pre booked minicab that's available for immediate hire....isn't that plying for hire.
What is the definition of pre booking?
If you flag down or approach a parked private hire car....is that pre booking by asking the driver are you for hire?
Ever though that the TfL Twitter account @TfLTPH is no more than scripted smoke and mirrors, designed solely to protect the corrupted interpitation of the private hire act 1998 by TfL senior management?
