United We Stand... You Couldn’t Make It Up

Recent revelations from Tim Fenton on Zelo Street blog, publishing stacks of evidence of corruption and collusion on the part of TfL, showing they have known since 2013, that Uber have been operating illegally and unlicensed, but chose to say and do nothing.

Call me optermistic but I was expecting to find our wonderful New United Trade Group leaders, at 9o/c this Monday morning, banging on Mike Browns door, United in their demands for an immediate revocation if Uber’s London Licence and and order for their vehicles to cease and desist from operating within the TfL regulatory area. 

But instead, I woke to news that the UCG general secretary and committee have called for the LCDC to be expelled from any further meetings with other groups within the UTG. Surely this couldn’t be the wishes of their members?

We now have the evidence we’ve been waiting for. Under current legislation we could see an end to Uber with top TfL directors and managers, past and present under investigation for malfeasance!

But instead, the short sightless and foitball supporter attitude of certain trade representatives are again fragmenting our trade. 

As if to rub salt into the womb, this post appeared on Twitter congratulating the LCDC action group on the fantastic work they’ve been involved in. 

Unfirtunately, the congratulations were short lived as news broke in a reply to the UCG tweet, from LCDC chairman Grant Davis shown below. 

Thank you, but your leader Mr Merralls & Committee have emailed the Club informing us they will no longer sit down with us at meetings? I am sure this is not what the membership of the UCG would wish for at this important time surely? 

Again, we will witness defeat, dragged from the jaws of victory by a vindictive individual with an agenda against another org.
