The New York Times International Edition dated July 5 carried a front page article, with a headline: Echoes of 'Brexit' in cabby war.

It reports that taxi warfare is going on in London between traditional black carbs to newly arrived Uber.

Uber fares are about 30 percent lower than those of black cars. "London without black cars," said the veteran cab driver, "would be like London without Big Ben". "In London, driving a cab is a vocation," he said. "It's a way of life."

Mrs. Bakkalive , who migrated from Morocco with her husband, became a Uber driver. With 5 children, she leads a busy life, Uber driver as well as a house wife. On average, she earns 300 pounds a week. Yet the family relies on benefits like subsidized housing.
