Speaking to LBC, he said: ‘I thought to myself, “I’m gonna try and hit them, I’m gonna try and mow them down”.

‘I spun the cab round, I was about to ram one of them, but they side-stepped and three police officers came running towards them with their batons drawn.

‘I was shouting at everybody, just get away from the area, stay back, just run the other way. There were a good few hundred people out there.’

ITA Call off Demo on Friday 9th June due to Terror Attack “We cannot be part of any hindrance or strain on the @metpoliceuk or security forces during this time of heightened national security levels”.

Electric Taxis

“If we take the easy line, as it seems government is doing, and use electricity as an “alternative fuel”, to power our taxis, vans and commuter vehicles in London and other cities, we will initiate regular blackouts during winter months. If all the 22,000 London Taxis (excluding minicabs) were made to run on electricity from the National Grid, these alone would require up to 8 Gigawatt hours/day; enough to supply a large city.”

Power Gen said last year that if their was cold winter their could be power cuts.! Then how do you charge EV’s?
