‘Sharia taxi driver told me I was disgustingly dressed’

Dressed in an elegant gown and dazzling earrings, she had enjoyed a night of glamour alongside the cream of showbusiness at an awards ceremony.

But for actress Frances Barber, the evening ended on a sour note after she was verbally accosted by a ‘sharia’ taxi driver.

Miss Barber, 58, who plays a barrister in BBC1 legal drama Silk, claimed the man, whom she booked through mobile phone app Uber, said she was ‘disgustingly dressed’ and that women should not be out at night.

      … but the galling thing is the amount of your money that the government gives them.

    A staunch supporter of the Labour Party, she likened Scottish Nationalists to Nazis because of the amount of abuse she got from them during the referendum campaign.

    No alcohol, no dogs, and now no exposed tits allowed – what’s next – “put on this burka to ride in my cab”? IMHO her face could stop a clock – but she certainly has a right to ride in any cab she chooses.

    She is obviously islamophobic and would not be welcome in “Sunny Ways” Canada. Don’t worry lady, in a few years you and every other woman in the West will have to wear a bag over your head and stay home.

      One wonders what her future casting prospects are, given that she had the spunk to criticize a Muslim. Probably zero.

      Sorry, I didn’t read the post that carefully. She works on a BBC show? Her future job prospects are definitely zero.

    A reason not to use Uber?

      Can you find a taxi that’s any better driven?

  • Frances

    But, but…..we’re always told how much better and more polite Uber drivers are.

    • Shebel

      They usually are unless they are Muslim.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      They do have feedback.
      Drivers and passengers rate each other.

      • Frances

        Would love to see this driver’s rating of this passenger 😉

    Gee, all this time were heard form the NDP that muslim cab drivers had Phd’s and Doctors and Engineers but because of racism they are stuck driving cabs .

    I still waiting to meet one of those Muslim cab drivers with a Phd because the ones I see in Cabs with a Phd need a GPS with a cartoon style screen to follow the arrows path to where I want to go.
    Why not pay them to deliver babies in the cab and save about $15,000.00 if they are real Doctor’s because a Hospital can charge up to $25, 000.00 plus $1500.00 a day to stay there.
    Oh wait, according to Liberals our Health care is FREE when they talk to immigrant and refugee groups .

      But not to low-income Canadians who – under Liberal standards – are not worthy of all these extras.
