At the last Mayors Question Time (MQT) we almost had a riot on hand.
As the Mayor and black cabbies have fallen out of love, so the exchanges between the two parties get even more bitter over their livelihoods and how to respond to challenges like the Uber. But this does not justify insulting them as the Mayor clearing did at the last MQT, where he called them luddites. Quite honestly this is a posh boy’s way of calling someone a thicko and to all intents and purposed he had called class war against them.
The very least he should do is apologise to the black cabbies at the next available public meeting, otherwise this is going to simmer throughout the reminder of his term as Mayor of London.
The West End Extra highlights how the cabbies are taking to the road in this weeks front page.
