Six Years On And TfL Have Said And Done Nothing About Uber Operating Without A Licence.

We've got a few questions we'd like to ask TfL and Sadiq Khan today, Sunday the 18th March 2018. 

Over the past 10 days, thanks to Tim Fenton's Zelo Street blog posts, it has become crystal clear that Uber BV has been operating in London, as a Private Hire operator, through a smart phone instant hail app, without holding a Private Hire operators licence.

We know this to be a fact!
We also have evidence that TfL knew this was the case asking ago as 2013. 


CLIFF LLEWELYN INFORMED SIWAN HAYWARD, SIMON BUGGEY AND SONIA ALLMAN IN DECEMBER 2013.

John Mason's Presentation Confirms TFL's Light Touch Approach To a Licensing Regulations In Uber's Favour:
In Tim's latest post, he tells of the presentation 
TfL Approach to Apps”, where John Mason starts by restating “Light touch regulatory approach”, and ends with “Let the quality of product and service provided to passengers dictate market”.

To this day, TfL have said and done nothing about this fact. They have allowed this company to carry on operating and have mediated with them as if they were licensed. 

This fact has now been out in the open, posted on news sites and in trade press and everyone in our trades be they Taxi or Private Hire, now knows TfL have allowed Uber to operate without having an operators licence. 

WHY HAVEN'T OUR TRADE ORG LEADERS BEEN BANGING ON MIKE BROWNS DOOR DEMANDING UBERS OPERATION BE CLOSED DOWN?     

WHERE IS SADIQ KHAN ON THIS ISSUE REGARDING UBER BV OPERATING ILLEGALLY WITHOUT AN OPERATORS LICENCE? 

WHEN ARE OUR TRADE REPRESENTATIVE ORGS GOING TO START REPRESENTING THEIR LONG SUFFERING MEMBERS? 

No more Mr Nice Guy, the drivers/members want action and we want it now. 

But, we don't want passive protests and ineffective  demonstrations, we want our trade leaders at Mike Brown's office and City Hall day after day, demanding he see that Uber BV cease operating immediately.

EVERY JOURNEY ON THE UBER PLATFORM IN LONDON, HAS BEEN ILLEGALLY DISPATCHED SINCE 2012.

Not only that, TfL were also informed drivers were accepting the bookings direct in vehicle as unlicensed PH operators in the same email in 2013....and again, said/did nothing in respect of contraventions of the 1998 Act.

WHY HAVE TfL BEEN COVERING UP FOR UBER???

DEMAND TO KNOW WHY, 
CONTACT YOUR ORG ASAP, AND ASK WHAT THEY INTEND TO DO WITH THIS INFORMATION, NOW ITS IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN???

If we wait till the appeal hearing, it will be too late as Uber BB will be relicensed in place of Uber London Ltd.
