Overall we are at around 75-80% of where we were before the lockdown. Tonight, unfortunately we had a couple of good jobs cancel at the last minute which stopped us being above the level for the last Saturday before the lockdown. we fell short by £16.00

maybe 50 percent of pre lock down levels over the phones but Saturday nights are reasonably busy on the rank or seem to be not that I drive at nights

So you don’t work nights, and you cream off all the good jobs. Your “drivers” must adore you :lol:

Up until about a month ago I was probably down 30-40% of what I’d usually take on days (mon-fri) but the Saturday evenings/nights were about back to normal. As more drivers have come back to work it’s fallen considerably, probably taking 50% of pre-lockdown over the days now and the last few Saturdays have been poor as well.

Definitely picking up on the south coast, getting near to pre lock down during the day, not so much for the night time economy.

Went to London last week and it was as dead as a dead thing on dead day. Can't see London getting back to anywhere near normal for at least 12 months.

what are you talking about jobs are shared fairly and always have been !

Secondly although I don't drive at nights I man the phones for the busy parts of Friday and Saturday nights for which I don't get paid !

Thirdly we are an all Hackney fleet so please don't assume we operate like Pirate Hire firms

and fourthly i am getting fed up of your constant sniping at me what is your problem with me other than the fact I live in he "posh" end of the county ?

Definitely quiet here, work is less then 50% pre lock down, maybe the influx of students might help

Nothing wrong with pomposity. Especially when it's me that's being pompous [-( 8-[

Well, it’s picking up, and dropping off. That’s what it’s all about! :lol:
