Agree with TFL decision to ban Uber in London

This petition had 561 supporters

On 22nd September 2017 TFL made an historic decision to not renew the operator license for the app-based firm Uber.

Uber are to lodge an official appeal and bankroll a huge court case in an attempt to go over the heads of TfL and the London mayor.  

They claim over 40,000 jobs will be "lost", but on the other hand claim they "don't employ anyone as they are self-employed individuals".  

Additionally the 40,000 drivers who will no longer be able to work for Uber will quite possibly end up at other local London taxi companies instead.  Uber are simply just trying to save their app in London and do not care about the drivers themselves.

Secondly, Uber have purposely encourages their drivers to claim a TfL badge to work in areas outside of London, to purposely undermine the councils outside of London.  Thus this has led to unfair competition outside of London threatening the livelihoods of thousands upon thousand of local cab drivers outside London.

Uber have since started a petition on to try and undermine the regulation clamped down by TfL, ignoring the actual reasons they are not being renewed in the first place.

Show your support to TfL's decision and sign this petition now and make sure Uber do not have their operator badge renewed over the heads of the regulatory body set in place to regulate them.
