Planning on traveling to London? Your cab driver could be a rapist or murderer thanks to a loophole involving refugees

Rebel Staff

A legal loophole allows refugees and asylum seekers applying to be cab drivers to be exempt from background checks.

Transport for London rules allow potential rapists and murderers to not disclose their criminal history.

According to The Daily Express, the loophole is clear as day and is written on a Transport for London document for “private hire driver licensing” applications.

“With regards to overseas criminal records checks, no such checks will be made in respect of those applicants who declare that they are in possession of or who have applied for refugee or asylum status,” the document reads.

Asylum workers are supposed to be banned from working until their asylum claim has been approved.

UKIP candidate Lawrence Webb wants the loophole closed.

“No one should be issued with a minicab licence unless they have first undergone a criminal records check. If that prevents foreign nationals from driving a cab so be it,” he said, according to The Daily Express.

One should remember that the UK is governed by the EU. They like Canada, are controlled by nasty left wing newspapers and they, just like Canada are stupid enough to believe them.
The only hope they have is Nigel Farage and UKIP. The thing about Taxi Drivers is just to protect the Muslims who’s main occupation is driving Cabs. They even refuse passengers who are carrying Booze, just to prove the purity of Islam. All the other Muslims are on Welfare.
Mr., very English sounding, Stepen Harris, should remember, if it were not for that shitty little island, he would likely not be saying what he said. Remember the shitty little Magna Carta, Mr Harris.

Where else in the world have we heard such stories? Seems the libertines have a hold everywhere.
From whom did the stupidity start? Not the group mind you the whom. The stupidity of privacy rears it’s stupid again. There is no safety in privacy except for criminals and invaders asking to be let in because of……………

The UK has lost its collective mind. It has been taken over, usurped, by jihadis, while native Brits, to date, are ineffective to stop it. Maybe if the UKIP party gets elected in Great Britain and Geert Wilders in the Netherlands, this can be stopped. But there is not a second to be wasted. It is truly just seconds to midnight.

Do native Brits have to undergo a criminal check before getting a cabbie license?

The British are the masters of NOT doing the obvious. And they can’t figure out when they shitty little island is falling apart.
