    Yes, i had one call me a "3rd world ****". Would have decked the piece of **** if there werent cameras and witnesses around.

    About stopping to pick up or drop off passengers, i do it on purpose because there were countless times they stopped in front of me (as a cabbie and in my personal car) so carry on. They dont like it whens its done to them the wankers.

    That's probably because we're not allowed in bus lanes

  10. black cabies horn at you because they are 80% english and they upset because you emigrants come to their country and still their clients

    emigrants are allowed to come but not to work as ph . they want you all to work in building, cleaning, and other sclave jobs. and then in weekend to go out and drink and spend some money in central london and rest of money to pay black cabs to get you back home

    You can't say all Black Cabs are racist or indeed anti Uber.

    Some may well be but you can't take everyone with the same brush.

    That's as stupid as some BlackCab drivers saying all PH are immigrants that can't find their own arse without a SatNav. Completely ignoring that fact that many London PH have lived in London all their life and also that a drivers ethnicity is not the only factor to be considered when assessing competency.

    Yes there are large numbers of PH that are new to PH and new to Londons roads, due to the fact that many tend to head into Central London due to not knowing any different then they appear to be everywhere, especially if you drive in Central London all the time.

    Voodooman with respect you just have to read the Twitter posts and comments by Cabbies to see there is indeed a section that are bigoted and racist.

    I have been shown some screen grabs of some iffy comments on the London taxi driver forum as well.

    Courtney Connell is indeed one of the biggest assets that the London Cab Trade has.

    I would point out that it is not only White people that are racist.

    Why not go to some other countries and see how immigrants are thought of and treated.

    Recent case in SA where a group of Policeman killed an immigrant Taxi driver by towing him along behind a Police Vehicle. Did they do that because the Taxi driver was Black? No they did it because he was an immigrant.

    As a left field example a foreigner can't own land in Thailand. Hence why many foreign property owners have apartments.

    And in some countries businesses can't be fully owned by foreigners you need a local to own a certain amount. Is that racist? Or is it protectionist? Or are they two sides to the same coin?

    Are Australians racist for being extremely strict on immigration?

    Many EDL are certainly not the sharpest tool in the box and certainly some will be racist.

    But racism is not just a "white" thing. And being concerned about how immigration is affecting your country is also not racist. If you were to say that all Black or Asian immigrants were bad for your country that could be considered Racist.

    If you were to say that widespread unskilled immigration was detrimental to the indigenous population whose livelihood was being directly affected by those prepared to work for less then you wouldn't be racist. IMHO.

    Consider the money that a skilled tradesman made back when there was a shortage of skilled workers. Harry Enfield had a character based on this stereotype. After loads of EE skilled workers entered the UK wages were pushed down.

    The people who gained from this tended to be the rich.

    The same thing is now happening with the unskilled.

    What is historically one of the best paying unskilled occupations? That's right PH and Courier work. Taxi work is pretty much the same as PH work as far as skills and knowledge goes outside London. In London the Taxi trade should really be considered a skilled occupation in the same way as a Plumber or Sparks.

    If PH and courier wages are pushed down it will be the rich that benefit mainly.

    Back in the 80's and 90's a good courier could make £500 a week easy, the best even more. Same applies to PH. Damon Hill financed his early motorcycle racing career using money earned as a Courier.

    Now 20/30 years later the wages have hardly changed. You have loads of workers doing 40/50/60 hour weeks and needing their money topped up with Tax Credits.

    That money comes from Tax payers, but it also increases profitability of large Companies who also employ unskilled workers.

    All subsidised by the Tax Payer, let's not forget that most wealthy people spend huge sums of money employing lawyers and accountants to reduce their tax liabilities.

    Anyway, rant over I am going for a cup of tea....
