London Uber ignoring all rules and breaking laws again.

How is this legal?  Oh, it isn't?  What's new.

What is the current situation with Uber in London? Taxi app won’t be stopped any time soon

It is now over two months since Uber’s license to operate in London came to an end, and yet the taxi company is still running as normal in the UK’s capital. Uber was stripped of its operating license on September 30, but they were certainly not going to give up without a fight and have continued to operate ever since.

CEO of Uber, Dara Khosrowshahi, claimed he would make things right after Transport for London accused his company of ‘demonstrating a lack of corporate responsibility.’

An appeal process has now begun and Uber’s London drivers can continue to operate whilst it runs its course, which could take a very long time.

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA.   Seriously.  Did anyone think Uber would just stopped operarting only because it became illegal?  I mean, what do you think they were doing in US this whole time?  No medallion, no regulatios, no laws. It's hilarious that they were pretending to follow the rules in London when it was somewhat legal and accepted, but now the truth is out.

      An appeal process can take months or years.  Same tactic as everywhere else.  They'll just wait until the cabbies go bankrupt.

        Remind me of Starbucks.  So predatory.  They go nuts when entering a new market (with promotions and cheap coffee) in order to take out the competition.  Once the competitors are gone, they can do whatever they want.

    London has a long history of private illegal cabs anyways. What's the difference.

    The British are pretty loyal to their Black Cabs.  Does anyone know if there are any organized or widespread boycots happening against Uber?
