Issues Discussed this week:

LEVC have today announced that the price of the TXe will rise by 2% in January and the launch offer of 3 years free servicing will end on the 31st December 2018

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Information has come to light that the recent Lisson Grove Mob attacks have been reported incorrectly by the Metropolitan Police. They have been recording the attacks as thefts from vehicles.

In a letter to Karen Buck MP, Neil Reynolds Detective Inspector of the Gangs and Proactive Unit in Westminster stated that there were only 2 attacks in June, 2 in July, 4 in August and 0 in September, he does however go on to say there was a sharp rise in October.

Neil Reynolds also states that they have no record of the George Vyse attack!

The majority of these reports have not involved violence and are recorded as thefts, only two offences have been recorded as robberies where the victim were punched both of these occurred in October.

Having reviewed the offences many of these offences were not reported to the police at the time of the offence but have been reported 1-2 days later and have limited investigative opportunities through which to identify the suspects adding to the difficulty in prosecuting the offenders.

* remain cautious when transporting groups of young men around Edgeware Road and the Lisson Green area

* Keep front passenger door locked and window closed when transporting such groups

* Be weary of requests distracting you to the back of the cab e.g. seatbelt stuck or wheelchair ramp required

* Do not keep your valuables in view on the front passenger seat or consul area

* Always lock your cab and keep processions safe when exciting the vehicle

* Report crimes to police immediately and insure any CCTV footage is produced to the police at the earliest opportunity.

You can also see, detective Inspector Neil Reynolds isn’t very clued up about taxis… referring to front passenger seats which will only be found in minicabs not Taxis

If you are a victim of such an attack report it straight away, plus contact:

Scott Barden Marshall, the neighbourhood policing sergeant for the areas covered by, Abby Road, Lisson Grove, Church Street and Little Venice Maida Vale.

Scott is based at 80a Church Street NW8 8ET

And you can phone am9-5pm on; 0207 321 8505.

You can also contact Scott out of hours in his email address;

P226058@met.police.uk

It is now just over 1 week until the 11th November and Poppy Cabs.

If you do not know what Poppy Cabs is, it is where Taxi drivers assist War Veterans from all of the mainline train stations, the Victory Services Club, Union Jack Club and Victoria Coach Station for free.

You can get involved by turning up at any of these locations at 8:00am and follow the directions of the Marshal’s.

And then from 12:30 rank up on Westminster Bridge for the return journey’s.

Poppy Cabs is run by Mike Hughs and you can contact him on Twitter @poppycabs or via email mike@mikehughs.org.uk

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

LEVC have further announced that the 3 years free servicing deal ended on the 1st November 2018, this is in addition to the price rise of 2% from 1st January 2019

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Lisson Grove Mob went on the rampage last night throwing objects at Taxi and seriously damaging a couple.

Police were called and apparently called for Backup in full riot gear before they would go into the Lisson Green Estate.

The Police need to get to grips with this mob now before a driver seriously gets hurt or drivers start a vigilante group to tackle these scumbags themelves.

Scott Barden Marshall, the neighbourhood policing sergeant for the areas covered by, Abby Road, Lisson Grove, Church Street and Little Venice Maida Vale.

Scott is based at 80a Church Street NW8 8ET

And you can phone am9-5pm on; 0207 321 8505.

You can also contact Scott out of hours in his email address;

P226058@met.police.uk

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

UTAG have been given permission to Judicially Review the Uber Licensing decision granted by Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot.

Granting the application Mr Justice Walker said, Uber has gravely misled the regulator and the court.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Uber have once again stated under oath that the driver accepts the booking when giving evidence at the employment tribunal.

This is quite obviously against the terms of their Private Hire Operators License and also their 15 month probabtion, TFL should now revoke their license without delay.

Over to you TFL!

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

If you drive a TXe and work Heathrow it will now cost you around £7 to charge your cab Heathrow Airport have announced.

The chargers will cost 31p per KWH which makes the chargers in the feeder park the most expensive in the UK, even dearer than motorway service stations.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Gett dropped a bombshell last week threatening to report drivers who post details of Gett jobs on social media under the Data Protection act.

This proves that Gett obviously know nothing about Data Protection or GDPR.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Events worth noting in London today:

Children in Need Rocks at Wembley Arena tonight finishing at 22:15

Violators at Shepherds Bush Empire finishes at 22:30

Headie One at Brixton Academy finishes at 22:15

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

THIS WEEK HIGHLIGHTS

Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot

has stepped away from trials

involving Uber amidst rumours of a

conflict of interest. She has already

allocated the Magistrate to oversee

Uber’s next case.

How do we respond to the ever

increasing number of roads

forbidding access to taxis.

Special  guest Chris Johnson talks

about events that led on his

situation with MyTaxi, and how the

app’s refusal to engage has led to

an employment case bring filed

against the company.

In view of Chris Johnson filling an

employment claim, LTR once again

invites MyTaxi on the show for an

informal chat

The apps will define working

practices ?

What advice changed your life ?

London is heading for a shortage of available Taxis with nearly 4 times more older taxis coming off the road than new being licensed for the first time. Also it appears that more Taxis are being taken off the road than needed as some appear to be being taken out of service before their 15 year age limit.
