Will you support a "NSW Taxi Royal commission" for the sake of fairness and justice rather than the Telecrap's false crusade Cabbie cheats face the sack based on false and fabricated reasons and grounds? The choice is yours and you will be judged by the history.
Missing in the list:
Our attempt to have an ICAC Inquiry
Our attempt to have a Parliamentary Staysafe Committee Inquiry
Our attempt to have a NSW Taxi Royal Commission
Roy Morgan Report conducted by Ms Ann Matheson re ATIS
Keatsdale Report (the DoT and the NSW Workcover Authority) re Taxi Drivers' Safety
Dalziel Reports (Sydney University, Dept of Psychology)
However we have some interesting documents.
