Lockdown hits Black Cab business


Recommended Posts

I was in the back of an Uber the other day, he said he worked right through the lockdown and was extremely busy.

 

Only glanced at the article, but I am not sure what unique skill set black cab drivers have that would help with Corona.

Indeed. They can perform ludicrously tight u turns. But so can Boris.

Depends what they put on their last 3 tax returns! 80% of taxable profits, 0% of cash in hand work.

A lot of newly self-employed were punished by govt measures, but at least in this case the honest tax payer benefited.  In a similar vein,  a lot of shops have folded (even though they may have been quite profitable) because they were operating under a dodgy basis - illegal subletting/not registered for business rates with the council. Consequently they were unable to claim the interruption grant that councils administered.

I took Uber last week and the driver told me he’s doing fine. 
 

Sorry for those driving a black cab but it’s a business from last century. 

Even in these times I'm not sure politically the Johnson government could let the black cab business go to the wall.
