Friday 22 September - the day the dream officially died in London, following the news of the Uber ban. Transport For London have officially revoked Uber's license, deeming them 'unfit' to operate on the city's streets. So basically, it's back to the night tube, or dare we say the night bus (~shudder~) for all us Londoners.
If there is any good news to come from this, the darkest of days, it's that there are some pretty awesome bars to be found all within easy walking reach of a night tube station. So that's where we'll be from now on, drowning our sorrows and ignoring the onset anxiety of how the actual F to get back to Zone 3 on public transport...
