If I could get over the misspelling of "thier", which I can't, the old fashioned, in fact century old, "busses" did it for me. 
Sadiq Khan may have only been the Mayor of London for three days but he already has announced plans for radical changes to the cost transport in the capital, starting with a shake-up of London’s bus fares. Mr Khan will be introducing his one hour “Hopper” fare, which will allow Londoners to make two bus journeys for the price of one within the space of a single hour.

Never heard of this manufacturer, but a hydrogen fuel cell, a motor on each wheel, and a bank of capacitors all adds up to 11hp and still a capable car. I would have liked a bit more information on the business model, but that will come.

Well, the 11hp is only to generate current to charge the capacitors that realise the dc goodness into the motors, that are stepless in their acceleration. I think we have to change the way we think about power and mpg.

Saying all that (and I know you know all that) 0-60 in 10 seconds is a bit weedy!

Black-cab drivers have blamed Uber for the increase, alleging that poor English and the inadequate street knowledge of drivers working for the taxi-hailing app company have generated so much frustration among passengers that it has led to violence.

Isn't that the argument that used to claim that rape victims were "asking for it"?

The problem I see is that stations are skipped or the whole train is cancelled on one train so that all of the following trains are less than 30 mins late.
What that doesn't take into account is all of the following trains are rammed solid.

Another non-story from the Standard. Uber used its technology to prevent booking requests going to any driver parked in a residential street around Heathrow last January! 
Heathrow is opening a special car park for Uber drivers after they were accused of making life a misery in villages around the airport. Drivers were accused of littering, playing music in the early hours, keeping their engines running and even urinating in gardens while their cars were lined up in quiet residential streets, waiting to collect airport passengers. Heathrow’s chief executive, John Holland-Kaye, admitted Uber were causing “a hu...
