So I’ve been away from my computer since Wednesday night. No doubt since then something blew up or was set on fire! But yesterday was World Book Day and today is International Women’s Day. So it a good week for me!
I backed Sadiq Khan – but now his racist minicab policy has betrayed me. This will make my brother’s head explode! Without the explosion, I agree with him. Black cab drivers are majority white working class but there’s nothing to stop a minicab driver doing the knowledge. Cab drivers who do pass the Knowledge are subject to more rules than minicab drivers. If it doesn’t reduce pollution, it’s not a good policy but I don’t believe it’s a racist one.
