    What if Uber don't appeal

    This may sound far-fetched, but I've known many big businesses down the years paint a picture of everything rosy, but close down at the last minute without telling anyone (even with employees turning up to work to find the doors locked and the shutters down). It's just a thought, but what if...

    A12 Speed camera

    Just a quick heads up. I saw some blokes in high-vis jackets tinkering with the A12 S/bound speed camera at the junction of the A13 today. So I'm guessing it'll be up and firing, so be careful through that one.

    How far out of London can we pick up?

    Just a thought... I was being pulled by jobs further and further out of London yesterday and wondered how far out I could pick someone up, and still be legal under the terms of Uber's and my license? Does anyone know? I mean, separate boroughs have separate PH licensing laws, and technically...

    So.... what is the point of ratings? We're told to do everything we can to provide excellent service, give out water, sweets, chewing gum etc... at rock bottom wages so that we get good ratings, but as far as I can see they don't affect anything at all. Unless you're REALLY bad, or smelly (which...
