    On this occasion I’m with the cabbies but I’d feel less sorry for them if they didn’t have their own lane on the very busy A4 to Heathrow the rest of time.

    The Olympics is an opportunity to show the world how much better we can do than communist China.

    For example, we don’t need to mobilse a military invasion force in our own capital city just to police it. What? Oh.

    But we won’t need to resort to Russian-style Zil La… Oh!

    But we don’t use the courts to threaten anyone organising their own olympic-themed even.. We do? Arse!

    But we don’t have an elite intelligensia, led by a state broadcaster, that takes away our freedom of speech and demands total conformit… Damn!

    OK, at least we aren’t labouring under a massive state apparatus that accounts for more than 50% of.. Really? Oh bollocks!

    ‘Ere… I ‘ad that Silly Berk-Ow in the back of my cab the uvver night. Then again so did free bouncers, a mime artist, two Pikey road menders and a police dog.

    Common Sense needs to grasp the Nettle says:

    I hope they win. The games are supposed to be an earner for the people but all they are doing so far is stopping people from earning a living.

    It makes total sense to let cabs use the Zil Lanes. It frees up traffic, keeps people moving, reduces pollution and is simply a benefit to everyone.

    I think their argument is just going round in circles

    Irate passenger says:

    What’s the problem here? Black cabs hardly ever use main routes where the Olympic lanes are. They prefer those bogus “faster” left-right-left-right diagonal routes that are actually much slower and add several quid onto the meter.

    Mrs Entity says:

    I really don’t blame them but they need to be doing this more regularly to campaign against the ridiculous tax duty on fuel.

    The Cabbies are being priced out of their jobs and people can’t afford the necessary price rises. So Carry On Cabbies you have my support because you have all be so kind to me and helped me with getting in your cabs with my wheelchair.

    The Olympicshambles is just making our country look stupid…. G4S can’t get their staff to even turn up (the few they have), the Olympic lanes in London can only be used by cars ferrying people to the Olympic stadium BUT Black Cabs/taxis cannot use those lanes even if they are taking people to the venue. I was told this by a cabbie in London last weekend and he is not very happy about it.

    Glad they have got together and made this protest.

    Also on the subject of Cabs, Mr Ian Austin MP for Dudley North has been asking questions in the House regarding assistance for wheelchair users when using this mode of transport. I can tell him categorically that no matter where I have ventured around the country I have NEVER had a problem with getting the cabbies to assist me, ensuring I was safe inside the cab, getting the ramps out etc. So Mr Austin please leave the Cabbies alone and start asking questions that are relevant.

    Maybe he will also answer @milroy666 and Radio WM regarding the offer of a one on one debate. Alas Mr Austin will not answer any of us regarding this issue and still has not apologised for calling UKIP Dudley members vile and nasty names; not very becoming for an MP. He also stated via twitter that @milroy666 was a “dispicable racist”.

    So Cabbies I suggest you drive past him if he wants a cab because he doesn’t think you look after the disabled and he is not a very nice person.

    Lord Wayne of Hackney Carriage says:

    black cab drivers are generally utter wankers these days
    short change is common
    and rate 3 is robbery
    last year a driver drove off as I opened the door to his overpriced uncomfortable automobile – he did want my fare

    I use Keen and AddLee – I never have the unpleasant experience of a Hackney these days.

    Hear me know – fuck off Cabbies. Addlee on the rank at City please!

    The presenters that moved to Salford with a massive relocation package will now get massive expenses to stay in their own houses that the kept in London, for three weeks as the relocation package was enough to buy a flat in Salford.

    AIUI about half of London’s cabbies are going on holiday for the Olympic fortnight so it will be murder getting a cab; shame the Westminster leeches will be on their hols too.

    MB. says:

    I have never understood how they justify allowing taxis into bus lanes and certainly can’t see why they should be allowed in the Zil Lanes.

    At least Michael Winner is prepared to pay the penalty when he takes his Roller down Oxford Street. How does someone sitting in the back of a taxi differ from someone like him in a chauffeur driven Roller or someone being driven by their wife.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
