With the alleged words "Fake News" being banded about, the London Cab Drivers Club, (for the sake of clarity), asked TfL compliance if the signage featured in a post on Taxi Leaks (which was referred to as Fake news in the LTDA Taxi paper) was actually proposed to the DfT by TfL. 

At the recent TOPS meeting, TfL confirmed they submitted the e-Taxi bus lane templates to the DfT for approval. 

They added that although the signage had been approved, there are no plans (as yet) to introduce the signage on current bus lanes Londonwide. 

But the question now begs to be asked....as the LTDA’s Chairman Richard Massett had access to the original templates:-

Why did they crop the TfL logo and address out of the images shown in Taxi? 

Why did they infer that the signage being at the bequest of TfL was rumour and "Fake News"?

Why were they trying to cover up the fact that TfL had submitted the signage and why did they say the e-Taxi bus lane signage was intended for Manchester. A statement that has now been shown to be "FAKE NEWS".  

But it’s all cleared up now, the Fake News was not the post on Taxi Leaks, it was in fact the article that appeared in Taxi Paper. This has been confirmed by TfL. 

Perhaps Chairman Richard Massett would like to publish an apology in the next issue of the LTDA's in house publication, Taxi paper.

Perhaps The LTDA could explain why they tried to cover up TfLTPH E-Taxi Signage  
In Taxi 

As Chairman, is Massett responsible for this Fake News, if so, should he resign ?

There is also another major question that needs an immediate answer...
What else does the LTDA know that they are not telling their members, or the trade n general???


It seems the secrecy is to continue with TfL and trade meetings, care of ..... 
You guessed it The LTDA and Unite.
