It kinda makes me wonder though, I don't know anything about his heritage, but my first name is uniquely Dutch, and my last name has obvious German roots. So how did that guy get in London in the first place?
All fine and dandy of course. Until I log onto facebook and see...this:
Uh..what? Who? What did I do? o_0
At first I was obviously confused. But then it recurred to me that this possible wasn't for me. A bit of googling revealed this guy was actually from London. A bit more brought me to this:
The man, who cannot be named, strangled his wife in 2000 and was jailed indefinitely for manslaughter in 2001.
Hundreds of cabbies have blocked streets outside the public carriage office in protest over the decision to allow him to take the black taxi exams.
Jeroen Weimar, chief operating officer at TfL, said: "This individual is able to drive as a minicab driver.
"We have talked to his employer and there are some very clear safeguards in place at the moment with regard to his work.
"We have got five to six years of independent medical advice saying this man is no danger to the community and fit and proper to be a taxi driver or a minicab driver."
Well, there he is. (video at the bottom) Doesn't look a bit like me, though he does come over a bit Dutch It's kind of unreal seeing this really.. I might have to shoot him an email after the initial wave of hatemail dies down I guess
Anyone else have anything like this happen to them? (lol silly question)
