Erm.

Trump promotes the dumbasses on Fox "news" and brands any factual reporting as "fake news"!?

How do you KNOW it's fake?

Regardless, the press sensationalise everything out of proportion.   Who gives a toss if May coughed during her presentation?  She's a human being.  Get over it.

Ha, the press are murdering VW to death over Dieselgate and gassing Monkeys  :grin:   I mean, you can't make this sh1t up can you?  Adolf Hitler founded VW in 1937.  Hitler liked using gas on innocent people because, well, he was a sociopathic, xenophobic, genocidal maniac.  81 years on, and Hitler's legacy is still poisoning people with gas!

And now Trump, Kim Jong Un and Putin have replaced Hitler, Kim II-Sung and Stalin.  Heaven help us!   How is it arrogant psychopaths end up running the world?  There's definitely something wrong with the human race.

I noticed that in recent years, the services of Uber have become rarely used, due to the fact, that there are constantly problems with this company.

Uber constantly has conflicts with someone and problems with drivers. I used to love this company very much, but because of the constant problems with drivers, I began to use their services rarely. They set me up on the day when I had to come to the airport and the driver refused to order at the last moment. I was terribly angry and since then, for trips to the airport, I use the services that provide on https://www.twelvetransfers.com/destinations/taxi/fort-lauderdale-airport/. Uber's company should be more respectful of its customers.

old thread -

I was an early adopter of uber before the start date of this thread. As already mentioned, a vastly better experience than black cabs - plus 40% cheaper. With the ride tracking software it is great to know that you can go to any big city and be confident of good service and you wont get ripped off.

Funny this was all blown up originally by a Labour mayor saying uber were losing their licence as new drivers were using a service that was was not doing proper driver vetting.

The rub was the vetting service the drivers were using was approved by Transport for London - an organisation under the control of the mayor.

All uber were doing was provide a list of these TFL approved vetting companies during the new driver application, plus an estimate provided by the companies of how long the service would take... strangely, everyone went for the quickest service, this was the one that was not checking.

Even if they had manage to bin Uber from London, they would have just moved everyone to councils outside London that were allowed to operate in London.

I would say this was all pure political spin.
