Taxi Drivers Need To Cop On

Why should there be barriers to entry to the job of taxi driver? What is so different between taxi drivers and any other unskilled worker? Should we limit the number of labourers, sanitation workers, delivery men, van drivers? I never heard such a ridiculous proposition in my life as that argued by these brass-necked guys. If you can't make money at a business - get out of it! Don't look for sympathy from a public that was abused by your highly restrictive practices for decades. We have had enough of protectionism of vested interests; indeed, there are still too many vested interests in this country. So I am glad we have a sensible report about taxis and hope the Minister rejects their self-serving call for limits on numbers. They have a neck to even suggest it.
