Didn't Take Uber's Competitors Long To Find Themselves In Court! (Wheely Quickly)

Well, it didn't take new boys on the block Wheely long to go and get themselves dragged into court. 

This is quite serious and could affect their operators licence as they have been summonsed to appear at Thanes Magistrates court (Bow Street) on the 22nd of February 2018.

A complaint has been filed that on the 17/01/2018 they failed to accept a booking for a vehicle, required by and on behalf of a Mr Doug Paulley, who wished to be accompanied by a disabled person. 

The reason for the failure to accept the booking being that the disabled person would be accompanied by an assistance dog.

This (apparently) is in contravention of section-70(1) and (4) of the Equality Act 2010. 

As this company is a competitor of Uber, one wonders if the Tories will now mount an on-line petition an door to door canvas, in support of this disabled person.....
Perhaps the Prime Minister would like to show her support (and that of her husband's) at the next PMQT  for this disabled person and his dog. 

Anyway, for all there big flashy cars and smart suits, apparently if your disabled....forget it.
