There's a news report on the Express & Star's website about the protest, but it's just basically embedding the Twitter feed of the journo who's covering the go slow.

So a few of the photos below, but the reporter has a shedload of photos and videos available on his Twitter feed here:

But nothing really about the issues, so it's more of local interest only in terms of traffic disruption etc :?

According to figures from last year’s taxi licence applications, new licence applications registered at Sandwell council take between nine and 12 months to be processed.

And they're complaining? :roll:

Bring it on, I say :D

A similar thing is happening down here.

Some in the trade are asking the council to make the knowledge test easier, as they say not enough new blood are entering the B&H trade.

Basically the operators and non-driving plate owners.

What they haven't grasped is that those coming into the trade are happy to work for Uber, and aren't enticed by working unsociable hours and having to give half their takings away.
