Someone (Alan McQ) an old friend informed me today of something quite obvious. I cannot believe I missed it.
Addison Lee trumpet they have arrived in Manchester but have registered in Stockport.
It now seems that they did this because Manchester would not relax the color policy of only allowing White and Silver vehicles to be plated as PH cars.Addison Lee have Black Galaxy's no older than 3 years.
The outcome of this ? We have scum from all over the Country driving cars plated elsewhere any any color any age.
The first time a really professional company try to register here and drive the standard up, they are refused.
Is this the way to 'Protect the Public'
At least the downward spiral of Manchester's PH operations has lessened the impact on our beloved Hackney trade, yes we are suffering, but not as much as the rest of the Country.
