BIT Organisation Junior Partner steps down from the job after complaining stress now visible-Bridgend Council destroy taxi driver lives

BIT organisation Junior Partner steps down from BIT organisation – Stress is a killer and so is money, as we uncover the fallen in today taxi news about people in Bridgend, in South Wales

worldnews

TAXI WATCH DOG TEAM loses their junior Partner, and so he leaves the duties assigned to him, after admitting he had issues with this council going back many years, that leaves him unable to carry on assisting the Senior Partner of the BIT organisation, as the case has become too stressful, and elongated,  with the same old same old from Bridgend council, that he finds too costly and upsetting in many ways. One of the reasons he contacted Councillor Peter Foley, now 2 years ago, as he felt elected Cllr Foley at the time, could solve the problems for the taxi trade

As we know the Councillor was blocked by operations and later was not reelected, leaving BIT to search for order, or a way forward

In a statement from the BIT Senior Partner this morning – Mr Nelson understood that many have fallen by the wayside, as frustration and stress undoubtedly sets in, after taking on Bridgend council over the years on taxi matters
FXi0.gif
People have tried in the past just like  Paul Pride, himself a local taxi driver on the beat still today in Bridgend town, who also tried to bring some stability to this local taxi trade, He too was dominated by council stress in the end ,with low fares and high costs to buy a new car over a 5 year contract, we ask you what chance do any of these taxi drivers have on these stressful terms covered in our forensic news disclosures 
when-the-going-gets-tough-the-tough-get-going
Something that was always going to be the case when you take on Bridgend council, and the council know it, and use communication strategies to frustrate you as we all now know, so you go away, said Senior BIT organisation Partner

Taxi Watch Dog Senior Partner stated – We will continue to press for change regardless how tough the process maybe, and thanked the junior Partner for his efforts todate.

The job is not finished and I will see it through regardless of the time, and cost to get there, said Mr Nelson pushing forward for the Bridgend Taxi Trade

With much progress under the BIT organisations belt, after getting to grips with how things go down under a Labour lead council and Bridgend county borough council, Mr Nelson stated the taxi show most certainly is still on track and will go on

Taxi Slavery-Shocking evidence-local ombudsman investigates case-Bridgend council found guilty July 16th 2018

In today news – local ombudsman gets a complaint that raises eyebrows, as Bridgend council are to be judged on the record as a slave master to the Bridgend taxi trade and the public of the county

Also in the news – Bridgend Taxi Trade shocked as they are now down a further 2 more places in the national hackney carriage fare chart, after only recently Cardiff, Swansea, Caerphilly see taxi fares increases. Many taxi drivers now fed up of the same old delays and poor excuses to prevent the trade from being economically sound, instead the trade continue in this case of losing money now 7 years on and paying the price with long hours and no income money on legal levels

Taxi Watch Dog Wales reveals the true face of Bridgend council to the ombudsman after getting under the skin of Bridgend taxi licensing and shared regulatory services not forgetting the chief executive and Cabinet

in a report sent to the ombudsman service recently in an attempt to bring normality to the Bridgend taxi trade, as it should for a business that needs to adjust to economic changes, which is a factor Bridgend council factor out for this local town trade in Mid Glamorgan Wales says Senior Partner for the BIT organisation compiling the file in the public interest after getting under Bridgend council skin to expose a slave master in the flesh

IW-Red-Skull

Taxi Watch Dog complaint invites the ombudsman to go and examine the forensic evidence now before them, which includes all concerned in taxi matters at the council and shared regulatory services,

Ironically the complaint sent in June to Christina Hill was never properly acknowledged as requested

In fact the ombudsman sees evidence it has been ignored thus far

PlFt.gif

The original email to Shared regulatory services stated the complaint was directed at BCBC and shared regulatory services combined, as the cost to the taxi trade today runs into 10s of thousands per financial year, and by the month as they continue with unhealthy practices that restrict the taxi trade in many different ways,even in communications or matters of economics that the trade cannot wait years to have addressed by them. Its just not viable in the real world said Mr Nelson Senior Partner for the BIT organisation – Taxi Watch Dog team who have been out to prove this case from the outset and told the ombudsman the same as part of the written complaint

37789523_2206112616289536_3230141235695976448_n

Senior Partner for the BIT organisation stated this morning,that the BIT organisation will see matters to the end and will continue along the path so the ombudsman can see forensically how Bridgend council destroy the Bridgend Taxi trade with their inept practices in communication and administration with shared regulatory services

Subject: Post on bit News face book – edited again I am afraid
Stage one complaint points and taxi issues for the record to show costs and losses in delay per financial year and the implications as a result of such delays are unacceptable and far too costly
Bit News – BCBC complaints get a fly on the wall account?
Email edit update  just sent to Christine Hill from BIT Partner

Further to my last forensic account on bit News I can confirm the chief executive is now again aware. I must therefore complain that these same practices of delay hurt the financial fabric of any Bridgend taxi driver subject to tariff issues.
A accountant opens and closes the financial book each year as costs and incomes are explained to HMRC. Yet BCBC go slow without ducare for the trade’s economic and moral values.
The BIT complaint can now confirm these delays affect even proposals delayed deliberately in time, which  the chief executive ignores. Not even the council budget in the way they force the taxi trade to budget and adopt economics such as working longer hours, but yet checked like a slAve master would to ensure his slaves are doing their work. In this case buying new tyres. Keeping up with vehicle repair costs, licensing and insurance, labour repair costs for experts, and the many associated costs that start and end in a financial year that can be subject to increase or market forces, the many changes in costs during that financial year or even in to the next. The trade is treated in such a manner that they must suffer the costs and wait far beyond sound business practices to have change implemented or even looked at in a viable time frame, as they should be in such circumstances given the importance of taxi trade needs, or when tariffs of all kinds go up,
Therefore factors are need to be accounted for and looked at sooner rather than later. The time frame set for the taxi trade to deal with matters has no boundaries, leaving always the trade subject to many costly and lengthy delays
One complains that the council always gives the talk and gives the impression they are doing something but the process overtime has a consistency of mal practice or excessive delays when you go compare departments linked across the shared area or those actioning for the taxi trade in Wales or Cardiff
Therefore those responsible for setting fares fail in a realistic time scale within a financial year to settle taxi matters. There is no implementation effective in place, as it takes far too long to action matters generally beyond any financial year. . As a result the taxi trade naturally incurs losses continually to naturally alarming proportions,with declines consistently in the national league table as a matter of course when such depravity is in flicked on the trade or hard working taxi driver of Bridgend 
The disregard applied to the taxi trade in Bridgend by even operations is far too costly and damaging each one potentially every financial year as demonstrated of late for the record to show even to this day. Taxi drivers are delayed with unjustifiable delays even in a simple complaint or a simple matter of financial matters during that financial year relating to issues fundamental to the correct income for a taxi driver in Bridgend or the understanding of costs for the public if they use a taxi. 
My our complaints is directed at BCBC and shared regulatory services combined as the cost to the taxi trade today runs into 10s of thousands per financial year, and by the month as they continue with unhealthy practices that restrict the taxi trade in many different ways even in communication or communications or matters of economics for fares the public should know about and comment on.
Please add this email as further evidence for the ombudsman where appropriate to examine the financial costs to the trade since 2011 or since the BIT organisation started it’s investigation into what many say are just plain constant lies from taxi licensing or those responsible for implementing change or reform or examine economic facts and costs for the Bridgend taxi trade,  when they go compare and challenge the doings and polices that affect the trade because of the time they take on it or go about shuffling it around going nowhere without a sound basis with real justification for being so bad administratively in order to progress issues economic and such like that are vital to the taxi trade in good time and within a financial year. 
Once again Bit News and BIT News725 is an historic and forensic account, to be used in evidence to support the costly practices of BCBC when dealing with the taxi trade.
THe constant delays are not viable for the taxi trade today and therefore I must complain and use this email as another example with further statements on the underlining costs that make the Bridgend taxi trade look neglected deliberately, and thus affect even the moral of the taxi driver in each financial year, past and on going, for a day to day taxi driver, with costs changing, and market indicators also an underlining factor or trend
BCBC and their operations do not consider the whole picture and effect go to sleep on the job when they are shown what the taxi driver needs as well as the public when they need a taxi.

Bridgend Council block complaints-delay-freedom of information requests stopped dead-disclosure laws-Monster breach Wales

So many out there will say you will have your hands full if you have any dealings with your local council. We wont disappoint you there. But how about if they have their hands full with you or a local taxi driver…

The Taxi Watch Dog lives to tell the story, about if you go complain or put questions to this council in Bridgend Mid Glamorgan Wales, that controls their power by ignoring the public says Taxi Watch Dog investigation, when you examine the forensic facts over time for local taxis and people living in this now infamous area of Wales called Mid Glamorgan

In Today news we also look at what a lot are saying is probably the biggest burger you can order in Wales today. A real Man V Food challenge if you must have a harty snack. With chips on the menu for only £1, you can see how popular this is with the Kids and family out shopping, or making that local trip down town for that Mega Monster Bite Burger just off the A48 near Home Bargain

In today’s news we look at a significant freedom of information request that should have been answered after 20 days of the request

FOI

Despite previous reminders featured in BIT NEWS,  BCBC have failed to process or answer why the have not processed the request. BIT Senior Partner said in an earlier statement that there is evidence that the council and shared regulatory services obstruct complaints and freedom of information requests when the public go asking

In many areas the council operations appear to be dysfunctional as a unit and operating on a low capacity, as a result of being in mal administration mode, warns the Senior Partner of the BIT organisation, heading the taxi watch dog Wales team investigation

landscape-1503486125-sugar

As the request is more than 3 months old says BIT Senior Partner, it will be top of the list of the many stage one complaints staring the ombudsman service in the face, once the complaints are sent to them as time now expires on each matter put to Bridgend Council and shared regulatory services, who both still remain schtoom, and are not communicating at this time ,with the BIT organisation as they should, it is as if they have lots to hide.

    Good afternoon
    Without Prejudice
    As questions still remain unanswered, the BIT organisation – Taxi Watch Dog team see the way forward is, resolution
    Please find copy below of an email already sent you by way of CC
    Therefore it is now appropriate for Daniel Cook to come on the record and confirm he has the information stated in the content of the emails. The BIT organisation’s Senior Partner – TAXI WATCH DOG is making it quite clear to the public and taxi licensing that –  taxi licensing would be deemed to be tampering with the Proposal now linked with a Tariff number 4 which was mentioned in the letter taxi drivers recently received, if they do not include vital content for a modern day Cabinet. We note taxi licensing invited Premier Cars to provide a proposal and accepted it but did not remove their content.
    Warning
    The BIT organisation therefore demand taxi licensing with shared regulatory services Policy Officer Daniel Cook include the Somerset formula doc calculation, divided by a recognized average formula for the Bridgend rural taxi trade today . As stated he should add the Bridgend licensing costs and so replace the somerset fees. We will use this basic calculation as an example for 2018 since this matter was first brought to our light in late 2016 when costs were lower for the trade
    For avoidance of doubt a previous Foi request from the council stated – the council could not possibly know the average cost of the Bridgend fleet
    Therefore the somerset formula makes an average calculation based on taxis bought across the borough taking into account any potential variations in costs for the Bridgend fleet. I good yard stick already acceptable by the trade. The formula talks of taxi insurance and getting quotes, The formula document talks of licensing fees. The document explains to a rural Cabinet how costs and wages are calculated also, for a taxi trade, using a trade calculation using a formula which included licensing costs. All of which must be resubmitted with confirmation of the same from Mr Cook as explained. For avoidance of doubt the somerset calculations can be easily calculated our expert tells us from Canada
    Mr Cook should also note that the Carmarthenshire Tariff – option 4 for up to 4 passengers- has dropped 19 places in the national hackney carriage table of fares since BIT was born in late 2016 and since September last year when the same 4 option was still falling still
    We look forward to taxi licensing acting in the public interests and Daniel Cook or even Dave Holland as there are clear directions with words. Words not used in the report previously supplied to licensing and Darren Mephem, Karen Williams, Front reception and distributed to trade members via media broadcast

Bridgend cabbie-Cab Rental firms escape the law-Council chief executive gets proof from Carmarthenshire licensing on how it is done

Is Bridgend councils legal team really any good, would you like the real truth

giphy-7

We ask the public to listen in to a crucial telephone conversation that explains why Bridgend taxi licensing have been blacklisted by The Taxi Watch Dog – BIT organisation

Chief executive for Bridgend council faces another taxi bungle after shared regulatory services set policies or put them potentially in motion, and then committee approve them after a public consultation in this case

You ever filled out an application form. They ever missed out a bit or a crucial bit

investigation_orig

Carmarthenshire taxi licensing prove the case in a interview that leaves very little doubT if you are thinking of taking money from the public like Bridgend council do, after the public have read the councils website, and forms and guidance notes, for licensing a Bridgend taxi to rent one to a would be client in Wales.

KADP75q

Taxi Watch Dog shows the public how it really is done after an email from the council on the subject earlier today:

Is your council embarrassing –

We take you now into a real situation with the Taxi Watch Dog Wales on the case

 

Below we show the string of emails from this rather unusual that even wants to enforece what they have not written up properly in a legal like fashion, before asking people for money, including the public going out and making an investment on a street taxi to eventually present to Bridgend council, after filling out their application forms available online

the-watch-dog-crime-blog-logo2 (1)

Attention Darren Mepham
Subject – cease harassment by way of enforcement because the council are in deep mal administration over taxis and that bit

Thank you for coming on the record on the Intended use policy matter, in the public interests.

When a body is in mal administration many bungles take place.
The BIT organisation are now satisfied that many and all Hackney carriage taxi drivers are still without any notification of an Intended use policy being active on their vehicle as the council have failed to process applications with proper notice at the point of sale or at the point of application. There are no guidance notes or conditions.  Therefore until the council amend their current mal administration documents they cannot enforce such a policy. Therefore you are herby given notice to cease any intended use of enforcement on hackney carriage vehicles and drivers, until such time the council get their act together and get out of mAl administration mode in respect to conditions, policies and byelaws related to the taxi driver on the front line including proprietors of a Hackney carriage’s – street taxis – taxi sign on top
For a lesson on how it is really done in Wales at the application process etc,  will be posted on bitnews725.wordpress.com and a audio file sent to Mr Darren Mepham and taxi licensing and complaints.
ThIs email will be published in the public interests.
We trust Darren Mepham office will acknowledge it.
Yours sincerely
D Nelson
For and on behalf of the BIT organisation

Dear Mr Nelson,

The Council has approved an Intended Use Policy which is available at:https://democratic.bridgend.gov.uk/mgAi.aspx?ID=5608&LLL=0

There has been no requirement as yet to enforce this policy and therefore there is no documentation available in the category “that their vehicle is subject to an intended use policy since May 2016”

Bridgend Council Policy officer convicts their prohibitive equality practices-Taxi drivers and public to look at a damaging claim on the record

Bridgend council may find themselves in hot water over this email forwarded to the ombudsman service by THE TAXI WATCH DOG recently, after it was reported today on BIT NEWS, that Bridgend council are dodging the bullet on this one on the record, as they are firmly in denial all the way to the top, after allowing private hire vehicles to be plated unfairly say many street taxis forced to buy new cars, still

Subject: Re: Bridgend Taxi Forum

Good afternoon,

The Licensing Authority were recently approached by licensed drivers wishing to create a group to represent the licensed trade in Bridgend raising a number of issues that they would like us to look into and make possible changes to current policy.

An example of the issues that were raised include:

·         The current age policies being prohibitive

·         The limited availability of 6/7/8 seater vehicles (and the prohibitive cost of purchasing one new)

·         The harmonisation of hackney carriage/private hire vehicle policies

Following this meeting I wish to carry out a review of the policies in Bridgend in relation to hackney carriage/private hire vehicles. In order to assist in this process I would like to hold a taxi forum to enable the trade and other relevant parties to raise any issues that would like to see addressed and to comment on any proposals.

At this stage I would like to get an idea of anybody that would be interested in attending a forum or have any other issues that they would like to discuss.

If you could please respond to let me know if you would be interested in attending a forum.

Kind regards,
