I do not. I call her 'life-wrecking nazi'. Always best to be clear.

Had the pleasure of being in the back of a Previa private hire the other day that needed killing with nuclear level fire.

Seat was rocking back and forth in a "not entirely attached" way, the sliding doors didn't willingly slide and whenever the driver braked it felt like he was cadence braking, except he wasn't. What a horribly abused POS vehicle!

Add to that it being filthy and smelly.

‘Shite Taxis’ would make a great name for a northern cab company.

Private hire cars are utter filth compared to usual black cabs in London. Dirty, small, usually bouncing on the bump stops, they tend to have a faint smell of shit and sweat which must emanate from the driver, slower at rush hour and usually more expensive as drivers have no knowledge of shortcuts.
How about not having a sig at all?

I use private hire way more than black cabs here, they're mostly newish Skodas and Seats so they're fine. Apart from the awfulness that started this thread obviously.

I was in a new black cab the other day. They're a pretty nice place to be.

I saw a programme on Ch4 the other night about a fake taxi. I fancy a ride in that.
