    T here was a time when I would describe myself as a Licensed London Black Cab Driver, but for anyone now who drives for a living a little creative re-branding is the order of the day. ‘Logistics’, the word first entered our lexicon in 1982 when the armed forces described the task of t...

    The great Samuel Johnson once said that when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life. So, why is it Londoners spend so much time on boring things like laundry when they could be out enjoying the capital? This Guest Post by Dian Liu suggests ways nowadays there’s so many ways to ...

  • The tipping point

    cabbieblog.com 23 Jan '15, 4pm

    The earliest explanation for tipping I can find refers us back to the days of Dr. Johnson and his 18th century circle of wits. Upon entering his local coffee shop for a session of epigram-flinging, Dr. Johnson (or rather, one presumes, his flunky, Mr. Boswell) would drop a few pence i...

  • Go North West Young Man

    It started with Tony Blair, like so many things, with an idea to London’s detriment. First to appease Europe, power has been devolved away from Westminster thereby continuing the process of turning all Europe’s Member States into a group of provinces rather than countries. This was cl...
