Uber was banned for a year in London, citing allegations that the mobile-run application could not equal to a real taximeter.

Uber has won a Short-Term License for running in London

The license of the cab-running application Uber was due to expire in the September month of 2017. But the Transport for London (TfL) said that they were not going to renew the license stating that the ‘application of uber is not fit and proper‘ for a private hire operator service.

Also, the TfL mentioned that they had concerns with the way Uber was dealing with the criminal offenses reported against the drivers. They also mentioned how the application has not been prompt with providing the medical certificates and other Disclosure & Barring Service Checks for the hired employees. These service checks ensure that only safe recruitments are made, considering the candidate’s behavior and his past work experience.

The company was seeking a 5-year license for running in London, which was then denied by the TfL.

Again the case was brought in the Westminster Magistrates’ Court, and the Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot declared that ‘Uber is now fit and proper’ after Uber agreed to follow certain rules and make changed in the working.

Some of the changes and actions which were undertaken by Uber:

  • First, Uber had to pay a legal cost of £425,000. 
  • Making strict rules relating to the private hire license of the drivers.
  • Setting a limit on the driver’s riding hours. 

Thereafter, Uber also agreed that the TfL’s decision to cancel their license was completely justified, considering the allegations and the points made.

Following the Uber’s agreement with the TfL’s amendments, the London Mayor Sadiq Khan said, “After some years of poor service in London, Uber has now agreed with the TfL’s allegation and has accepted them to be all justified. Our stance now remains vindicated by the court.”

Later, on 26th June 2018, the Westminster Magistrates’ Court granted a license for 15-months on probation to Uber. During this period, the Court will be monitoring the service and performance, which will decide the future proceedings. Currently, Uber is operating with all the TfL’s newly set rules along with the ones decided by Uber for the 5-year license.

You could now lodge complaints directly to the police instead of going through the TfL authorities. The drivers can only ride in a particular region if they hold a private hire license for the concerned region. Also, the driver has to compulsorily take 6 hours of an uninterrupted break after 10 hours of running.

Do Democrats want illegal immigrants to ‘infest’ US? | Truth Or Fake

Donald Trump is currently serving as the President of United States and is on the 45th position. Before getting into the politics, he was into business and has also worked with the television fraternity.

Do Democrats want illegal immigrants to ‘infest’ US? | Truth Or Fake

Donald Trump started off the twitter posts with the above tweet he made, which marked the beginning of the border security problem. He mentioned how the crime rates have gone high due to the migrants which have entered the country illegally. In his tweet, he mentioned that the crime rates in Germany have gone high by 10% as all the migrant people have been accepted in the country.

Another point to note here is, Trump used up fake information to make his tweet look a promising one. He said that the crime rates have increased in Germany, but since 1992 the crimes have decreased and also in the year 2016 it was reduced by 5%. Why would anyone do it?

He didn’t stop there!

Next tweet was directly pointed to the Democrats of the country, for allowing all the illegal immigrants inside the country. There was a huge twitter rage online, and there were many people who shared their anger for this one. He compared the immigrants with the MS-13 gang, and how the Democrats didn’t care about this problem.

In another news, it was reported that Trump is planning to build a wall and he has started looking for the prototypes for the same.

He mentioned that the children of the ‘illegal immigrants’ are also liable under the new policies. Now they can’t be charged as an illegal immigrant but would have to pass through the legal proceedings. Below was one of his tweets, and he later added that – if parents are coming to the country illegally, then their children are also equal at fault though we can’t charge the immigration thing on them.

Finally, he ended up the discussion with the tweet which is given below.

What do you think about this way of dealing the immigrants? What’s your say on the building a wall around the United States as it is being planned by the President?
