The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan is currently trying to ban taxis from parts of London for 'environmental reasons.' His latest hobby-horse campaign is directly targeting a vital industry and will impact the livelihoods of many.
Unlike Mr Khan, we in UKIP value the Black Cabs as an important part of our capital city's transport system.
Commenting on this, UKIP Deputy leader - Mike Hookem MEP said:
"UKIP stands with the Black Cab drivers and we fully support their flash protests this week. They are part of this nation's heritage and a vital mode of transport for many. By unfairly targeting Black Cabs like this: Is Khan trying to break this trade permanently? This is yet another shameful episode in a long-series of political posturing from the Labour Mayor."
