    It ain’t over till the EU states open up the market, which will take many years.

    I heard one of th English cabbies, some union official, try to defend the odious restrictions on Uber to PRI’s World. There was a hint of desperation in his voice, esp. when he talked about how the cabbies weren’t a monopoly. To my naive ears, he sounded like he was saying that as “part of public transportation” they were actually part of the government, so there was no way they were a monopoly. There were so many crimes against logic in his responses that it could have been a primer.

    I was wondering how cabbies staging traffic blockades and slow-downs during rush-hour was supposed to make the public more sympathetic to their position. Like French farmer strikes and blockades, it smacks more of attempted intimidation.
