Mayor Johnson

Self preservation

The Mayor has been quick to follow up on one of his election promises to make life easier for Black Cab drivers by removing the half-yearly inspection which only came in October last year.

I anticipate more Black Cab friendly measures from this Mayor as long as he keeps on cycling in to work. It is simple self-preservation. The Sunday Mirror pictures not only showed him breaking the rules but also chatting to two cab drivers. God help him if he crosses the cabbies they will knock him into the gutter double quick. It is not as if he is not easy to spot on his bike.

Seriously though all good red-tape slashing stuff.
