Transport for London Craziness

According to the Telepgraph, Transport for London is about to open a public consultation on several things about “minicabs” that are just insane and are clearly an attempt to try to hinder Uber and other similar “on demand” transport apps.  According to the Telegraph the consultation will contain the following key tenants: Operators “must provide […]

Dignity

When the Supreme Court in the US ruled two years ago that the Federal Government could not ignore us as a couple, I broke down in tears.  We started, what has become, a rather long process of moving to the US.  Now, the Supreme Court has said that it is so important that not only […]
