Over the last couple of days much new information has come to hand to explain what has been happening within the taxi trade and the drivers.
The Rotherham Private Hire Drivers association is revealed to be a rabble run by thugs that doesn’t properly represent the trade nor is it united. The RPHDA is not a genuine members organisation, is fundementally un-democratic and it has many fewer members than it claims! Their entire purpose seems to have been to protect the ill-gotten and fraudulent gains of members, engaged in wrongdoing.
The strike, is ostensibly about the costs of CCTV, and that they will not have control over it.
Why is this an issue? Taxi Drivers won’t be able to under declare earnings and over claim benefits. Nor will they be able to do those ‘lucrative taxi fares’ that involve criminal activity whenever they want to, once the CCTV is installed. That is the real gripe they have! Bullying and thuggery must not be given in to.
It must be remembered that the taxi trade have been shown to be involved in the grooming, child rape, trafficking for the purposes of prostitution, drug trafficking, money laundering the list seems endless, as well as, the widespread Tax evasion and benefit fraud currently occuring!
This cancer of criminality must be expunged from our Town, and we are relying on Commissioner Ney to put a stop to it!
