Dogs n Booze
One or two story's have hit the headlines this week about drivers, both in London and Australia refusing to carry blind fares because of their guide dogs. This reason they give is that their religion considers all dogs unclean. The law in the UK is very clear on this you cannot refuse to carry a dog used as an aid by any disabled person unless you are in possession of a Doctors note of exemption. And now story's coming from the USA and Australia tell of drivers refusing to carry passengers in possession of alcohol. How long before this spreads to this side of the world. As far as I am concerned they knew what they were signing up for when they got their taxi drivers licence, using religion as an excuse to pick and choose passengers is not an option. Mind you I couldn't see them getting away with telling some of the old lasses that we pick up from supermarkets that they weren't allowed their wee drop of mothers ruin!
