London Shows Uber the Door

"While we haven't been asked to make any changes, we'd like to know what we can do", Tom Elvidge, Uber's general manager in London, told the newspaper.

Summing up the game, he claimed the result was unfair despite acknowledging a string of saves from Labour keeper Mr Perkins "It was a good match, I think the fact that we lost 6-0 and our goalkeeper was Man of the match probably says a lot about the play", Mr Kinnock said.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said Transport for London (TfL) had raised "serious concerns" about safety but suggested Uber had an opportunity to "mend its ways".

Transport for London (TfL), the agency overseeing the city's transit, cited Uber's "approach to reporting serious criminal offences" as a key reason for declaring the company "not fit and proper" to hold a license.

"I fully support TfL's decision - it would be wrong if TfL continued to licence Uber if there is any way that this could pose a threat to Londoners' safety and security".

Yesterday, government officials in London announced that they would not be renewing Uber's license to operate in the city.

"By wanting to ban our app from the capital Transport for London and the Mayor have caved in to a small number of people who want to restrict consumer choice".

More than 515,000 people entered their names by 1200 GMT on Saturday in support of the USA -based company, which urged users to sign in order to keep its cars on London roads.

London is one of Uber's largest and most lucrative markets, with 40,000 drivers and 3.5 million people who use the app once every 90 days.

One of Uber's British competitors in London, Addison Lee, is also awaiting a decision from TfL about a longer-term license.

John Zimmer, Lyft's co-founder said: "We're the fastest growing ride-share company in the United States right now". In 2016, The Licensed Taxi Drivers Association blamed private auto hire companies like Uber for causing " unsustainable congestion", costing London £5.4 billion a year.

Looks like things are taking a turn for the worse for Uber. Saturday night the Save Your Uber in London campaign on the Change.org website had gained almost 600,000 signatures. If the decision is upheld in court, it will have to stop operating in London.

Speaking on ITV's Peston on Sunday, McDonnell said: "Hand on heart, I don't think I've ever used Uber".

Uber will be fighting for its future on two fronts this week, as the ride-hailing service attempts to reverse the revocation of its London licence while appealing against a landmark ruling on the way it engages its drivers.

The victorious Lobby team hit the net so many times that they failed to keep track of who scored all their goals.
