Copy Boris Johnson.
On the 14th of Jan Boris Johnson visited the Royal Oak Taxi Centre in Paddington and set out his plans for London taxis, including giving them a seat on the TFL board.
Two weeks later Brian Paddick comes up with his ideas for London taxis. Look familiar?
Boris said “It is flattering that Brian Paddick has used his first policy launch to endorse my plans for black cabs in London. What Londoners are calling out for is a change of Mayor, not a copycat Mayor.”
