Re: Business Model:
"Checks and balances that Uber have been caught deliberately delaying, avoiding and ignoring"
Another untruth spread by taxi drivers via Facebook..
The truth is TFL are responsible for background checks and all private hire companies, Uber included check the TFL documents which have already been TFL vetted..
Uber have been at the heart of a very focused hate campaign by taxi firms along with very smart social media brainwashing. In the same way trump got in, we ended up thinking not being part of EU would be a good plan, Uber being evil beyond all else was very similar Viral PR campaigns behind it. Are Uber whiter than white, of course not, they aren't perfect, but I would prefer my daughter was in a tracked, non fakeable Uber than an untracked, potentially bought second hand and not even real black cab
