amazing

How dare you post a freebie that doesn't benefit Londoners. You know how hard it is for them to get around the capital with their complicated systm of tube/bus/taxis/hoverboards etc.

They'll be along shortly with hideous tales of how they just missed a Northern Line tube and had to 'wait' nearly two whole minutes for the next one.

Just think on my friend and ensure your next post is Londoncentric.

How about you not use a multinational corporation (after this offer ends) that cheats it's drivers and operating jurisdictions out of money and economic security. And instead, support your local taxi firms and drivers, where most of the money goes back into the local economy instead of 25% going back to San Francisco.

Thankfully our traditional, local taxi drivers declare each and every penny to HMRC, DWP and the Local Authority..........Oh yes they do you know.

local taxi drivers are simple folks, who most likely will just spend their money locally or buying stuff. what they don't do is to squirrel the money away or set up cross border tax avoidance schemes. it all goes back into the pot eventually. except in Uber, this doesn't happen, 25% is extracted overseas to San Francisco. You know why quantitative easing doesn't work? Because the banks are too rich. Give rich people a tax break and they will save it. Give poor people some money and they will go out and spend it, having a multiplier effect in the economy.

well, there's nothing I can do to convince someone who's in favour of a low wage economy on the race to the bottom. I am totally against the idea of Uber, I was one of those who voted for Brexit against this whole globalist, capitalist conspiracy against the common working man. Uber drivers in London already earn less than the legal minimum wage, never mind a living wage. But ****'em, and all the other taxi / minicab drivers, because you saved yourself 2 quid. If you want to economically depress your local economy by using uber, you'll eventually not only shoot yourself in the foot but everyone else's foot around you.
