Murderers, rapists and sex cases have reacted angrily to the news that the government is to check potential taxi drivers for a criminal record.
The National Union for Murderers (NUM) have threatened strike action if the government carries through its threat to check the background of cab drivers.
NUM Chief Exec Officer, Peter Thape has reminded the public that withdrawing their members from private hire work could leave the industry with virtually no drivers at all.
‘Without us, you’ll all be on the bus,’ warned NUM boss, Thape.
‘Sitting on that night bus, all alone? It’s your call?’ added Thape.
