Wild Goose Chase

November 23, 2011

The Background is Orange
In yesterday’s blog I reported that taxis were no longer to be found along East St Helen Street on the basis of a notice on the Market Place. But today at lunchtime when I went to check out my facts I found there were no taxis along Queen Street where they are supposed to be. But you can buy or order local geese and turkeys from the butcher, down that way.

The taxis were still to be found at the top of East St Helen Street, where a similar notice had been put up and subsequently removed. Apologies to anybody who was led on a wild goose chase looking for taxis. The local authority may have agreed this but the taxi drivers have not.

    i noticed yesterday that the layby in Broad Street, near the entrance to the multistorey cp is now painted as a taxi rank. No taxis though!

    The taxi drivers are tarnished with the same brush as Abingdon Town Council…. A law unto themselves!

    Not sure Mr Grumpy, if this is right.. what are the views of the Taxi drivers?, no posts on here to show that they like/dislike the new arrangements….
