Breaking News : Statement From The Independent Taxi Alliance (ITA)... Demos Cancelled.


After calling the action planned for next week, we've been monitoring the response, especially from the orgs and unions.

Except for the @The_LCDC, who have come out in full support,



 the other orgs and Unions' response has been collectively piss poor.

There is always many people to cajole and please....
* to keep hold of the two tier system, 
* to demand protection for against armed robbery from the @metpoliceuk, 
* to demand access to areas TfL buses may enter, 
* to be part of the transport system, 
* not relegated to AddLee and Uber status.

A good percentage of the ITA are mid fifties and sixties - we can sit back and see this game out. 
But we are fighting for the future Taxi driver.

Yet 95% if rank and file drivers, don't want to do anything.

And as for org and union unity? Don't make us laugh.
This trade has never been more divided.

It's the same old story - we call a protest and 
* it's not the right place, 
* or it's not long enough, 
* or too long, 
* or the wrong time, 
* or "demos don't work" that's our favourite, "demos don't work"
* of course they won't if you work through them! It's not rocket science.

If 5k drivers protested everyday, changes would happen.

TfL, Camden, Hackney, Islington, the City of London could not suffer the costs and disruption

But, why is it always the same 500 or so proactive faces going out of their way, giving up their time?
For what?
For mushrooms too busy to take their snouts out of their moneybags to see what's happening?

Well, no more.

No more can we ask those loyal men and women to go without, so the "excuse me Johnnies" can hoover up, rubbing their hands together with miserly joy.

IT AIN'T HAPPENING.

Let them get on with it, is now the majority consensus amongst the Proactive ITA members.

Let them call their own drive-ins in Lisson Grove, and moan as street after street, road after road, turning after turning is taken away from them, without so much as a whimper

Let them ask their orgs and unions to fight for Bank Junction, and hold Mike Brown to account for his anti Taxi policy, and question the bus driver's son as to why he is so pro bus and tube, and so destructive and deceitful towards Taxi drivers.

Let their orgs and unions take on the councils the next time Taxis are prohibited from using a certain street or right turn where buses can go, and you're thinking why am I paying twice what my vehicle is actually worth, with my fares dictated and my entry exam so stringent, and being pushed gradually into the same tier as a PH driver.

Drivers ask, why am I being treated like this by TfL and anti-Taxi councils?

The answer is...because you're weak.

They know they can get away with anything with Taxi drivers - because they won't fight back! Not 95% of them anyway.

So the ITA say to the 95%, "Get on with it."

THE ITA WISH TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE PROTESTS ON LONDON BRIDGE, GUILDHALL, BANK JUNCTION, WESTMINSTER BRIDGE, TOTTENHAM COURT ROAD, AND NEW SCOTLAND YARD 

ARE ALL CANCELLED.

ALL CANCELLED.

STAND DOWN AND INFORM OTHERS.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNWAVERING SUPPORT!

IT'S BEEN A GAS.
