Westminster Conservative Councillor Richard Holloway, accused the LTDA of spreading complete and utter Lies, after their twitter post claimed that an Uber driver had appeared in Wimbledon Magistrates Court, after a Machine Gun was found along with ammunition in the boot of his Uber Car.
Even though the story was confirmed by a link to Private Hire and Chauffeur Magazine (PHC), councillor Holloway returned that he "gets FACTS from paid journalist who operate within the law"!!!
What could Cllr Holloway possibly mean by this statement?
Is Cllr Holloway alleging that the LTDA's man in court, or the author of the story in PHC magazine are operating outside the law?
Is he alleging that the LTDA and PHC only use unpaid reporters who only deal in lies and fake news?
I wonder if the LTDA's lawyer Charles Russell will be contacting Mr Holloway over his libellous tweet.
Would make interesting reading in the Taxi.
We've heard from Cllr Holloway before in regards to Uber, he hit the headlines when the conservative councillors on Westminster City Council, wrote to Boris to "insist" he downgraded Black Cab Regulations and left Uber alone.
So, no conflict of interest here then?

This is one of Cllr Holloway's favoured Uber Minicabs, putting the public in danger by driving through the middle of the pedestrianised Shopping Mall in Victoria, close to Westminster City Hall.
Well done Richard, your voters must be really proud of you !
