    I'd welcome a national campaign warning women to ask for ID before getting Into a cab... but then whether some are In any fit state to do that at 3 am after drinking all night, I don't know.

    As I understand it, from what I read, the facts, as stated, can be interpreted in 2 different ways.

    There is the way that they are leaning the biased on (which may well be the actual case) that a minicab may be lent out, AS a minicab to anyone. This, in itself is something I can't see happening at all, as all Taxi Drivers, regardless of whether they be minicab / private hire or full 'hailing' taxis still require full Hackney registration in order to operate as such, and despite the article's implications I don't see this as being the case.

    As for lending the CAR, then that is already the case. The car itself is often already privately owned (apart from where the fleet is provided by a Taxi company), and whenever it is not operating as a minicab it remains a private vehicle & is therefore subject to the same rules regarding lending it as they always have been, as far as the nominated driver being covered by insurance & having an appropriate driving licence.

    As far as I'm aware, as things stand, in order for a car to be classed as a taxi it has to meet the conditions laid down by the Hackney regulations, regarding size, safety & overall condition, display the appropriate plate (white for Private Hire & Red for the 'Hailing' type). Both must also be fitted with a calibrated & Licenced Meter, with a list of Tariffs, along with Photo I.D. Once the plate is removed & the Meter disengaged, then the Taxi is merely a Private Car. Therefore, just what is this massive change that the article is getting at?

    What are you talking about ? You're paranoid.

    You were the one to bring up Muslims.

    That's what the Left do though Isn't It ? Throw the firecracker In and then run away to watch the fireworks crying boo hoo hoo, look at the nasty far right.

    This new law has nothing to do with Muslims. Women get raped also by British, Polish, Nigerian whatever.

    Fourpart.... Your assumptions are correct... the car be It mini cab or Hackney, must be Council plated.

    I suppose It comes down to temptation... If the taxi Is loaned to a family member and he's flagged down, It's the thought of ' I can make a few quid here'...
