But the point is a fact.....except in re-regulated Aberdeen and of course always regulated Dustyland.....where apparently all drivers completely co-operate, have strict hours and go home so not to harm the income of the next shift Image


What a load of shecht.

I didn't say anything of the kind. I just made the observation that less work means drivers work longer hours, meaning less jobs per hour for everyone.

I certainly didn't say it was anyone's fault or that anything could be done about it, it was just an observation about how the trade works and how less work is made worse by drivers working more hours, further diluting the amount of work.



I think you did, but that was before the jock buffoon started =D>

Is that the taxi trade's equivalent of the royal 'we', ie HC plateholders?

My point, and I think the other lads are alluding to it, is that by working longer hours, if you want to earn the same amount, you must carry on working even longer hours as time goes on, as the other drivers are also working longer hours.

So in effect it will lead to drivers never earning what they need no matter how many hours they work.



But it is a point that isnt actually a reality.

If a person needs £50 on a certain day, he will work till he gets it......because if he doesnt his children will starve, or he wont make the payment on his cab, or any manner of differing things.

I wouldnt get out of bed for £50 8)
