Addison Lee losing its £4m Government contract is another example of people power – with cyclists, cabbies and other members of the public using Twitter to force change.
It was completely unacceptable for the taxpayer to continue to fund a company that chose to break the law by driving in London’s bus lane.
But why did it take so long for the Government to act? Only two days ago, Jeremy Hunt was seen travelling in an Addison Lee on Government business.
If Addison Lee continues to act illegally the Conservatives should hand back the £250,000 donation they received from the company.
Otherwise they will be endorsing John Griffin’s modern day highwaymen tactics.
