UK: Criminal record checks BANNED on foreign murderers and rapists who want to be minicab drivers


Asylum seekers and refugees applying to be minicab drivers are exempt from criminal records checks, potentially allowing murderers and rapists to get behind the wheel.

Rules laid down by Transport for London (TfL) mean refugees and those applying for asylum do not have to reveal whether they have a criminal history when trying to become a cab driver.

The legal loophole in an official application document on ‘private hire driver licensing’ says people coming to Britain will not be required to have their criminal convictions checked.

    And they probably ban things like Uber because it’s potentially dangerous?

      The governments are just pissed because they would not have a strangle hold through the licensing boards. Another one of Wynne’s and Torie’s Revenue tools.

    The moral inversion is going swimmingly.

    It only took 70 years for Britain to decline from an embarrassment of riches to an embarrassment.

    I still think that the NDP’s claims of Toronto having muslim Cab drivers with Phd’s is pure BS because the cabs I’ve been in use GPS maps to help the driver find an address, plus, I have yet to have a deep conversation with these geniuses .
    If they are all Doctor’s , then we can save $$thousands if they deliver babies in the cabs and we pay THEM to do it for about $2000.00 instead of the Hospital bills for over $20,000.00 .
    Be creative folks, use Mini-vans for cabs that have a delivery table that pulls downs and is sterilized.
