Addison Lee and Licensing

At this evening’s die-in at the Addison Lee offices, the ever entertaining predictable John Griffin deigned to address us the broadcast media, only to rehash his previous comments about cyclists needing licences.

Now, Addison Lee has a licence as a private hire operator, yet that doesn’t stop Griffin inciting his staff franchisees to break the law.

Addison Lee drivers have driving licences, but that doesn’t stop their constant infringement of traffic regulations.

Griffin and his company are a prime example of the ineffectiveness of licensing.

So why the buggery does he hold so much stock by the idea?
