The editor of FT Weekend, Caroline Daniel, came across this handmade sign in a London cab earlier this week. It serves as a nice illustration of Hannah Kuchler’s story from today’s newspaper, from which:
Bent over the steering-wheel, the black-cab driver kept saying “can’t”. Can’t turn left here, can’t turn right there, can’t use that road which is all backed up since the traffic lights have been rephased.
It is bound to get worse, said the driver, who, like most cabbies, believes that black taxis should have been allowed in the so-called “Zil lanes” set aside for Olympic dignitaries, athletes, sponsors and the media. “It’s ridiculous,” he said.
