I don't fly B.A. if I can avoid it because when I was young, it seemed you had to be a millionaire to fly! B.A. held the monopoly. The budget airlines changed all that. Whenever one group hold all the cards, the public suffer. Whether it's British Airways, British Telecom, Black Cabs or The Church of England, power corrupts and absolute advantage leads to complacency, stagnation and lazy practices. 
Uber and all such internet platform innovations have revolutionised modern life, emancipated not only the work force but the public and have pioneered imaginative service provision that has brought immense benefits, efficiency and pleasure.
Streeting, though Labour, has donned his institutional straight jacket and is championing the old dictators. 
Not, please, that I am against the Black Cabbies. Many are friends and I use them regularly and have great respect for their acquisition of the 'knowledge'. However, even the 'knowledge' represents a rarefied citadel of required information constructed by forbears that becomes restrictive and excluding and is, now, in fact unnecessary. 
Labour politicians should not peddle the past but facilitate evolutionary provision, naturally working to ensure good, safe and fair working practices, but not championing the Lords and Ladies of the Manor over and against the newbies. 
"You brave, courageous and wonderful man.
To stand up for the truth in the face of suppression and oppression
is truly an act of a pure heart."
