What’s for sure, this verdict has exposed Uber and TfL for what we already knew they were.
As we knew, this was not about technology, we heard all about that years before….this is about exploitation, predatory pricing, lobbying and more.
I spent an enjoyable evening last night, asking Uber punters as they were getting in, or at the lights ‘no doubt you’re glad the driver’s now getting sick and holiday pay, of course fares will rise but what’s not to like?’
Should have seen the looks I got, give it a go, it does wonder for the soul.
They now know as riders, the exploitative nature of the whole thing. If Uber appeals, that’s another PR own goal.
TfL and Uber are on the run, so let’s get after them!
