Paul, correct and to plug your illustration of deliberate misrepresentation for effect, turning it into a valid analysis, we simply need to look at the number of black cab drivers in London (21,099 licensed currently) within a cohort of 88,412 non-Uber drivers and the number of Uber drivers is 25,000 in the same geography. This means that in every 10,000 black cabs or non-Uber private hire, there are 13.7 sexual assaults per 10,000 compared to 12.8 in every 10,000 Uber drivers. There should be zero in both cases, but where we are, it means you’ve got a lower chance of being sexually assaulted in an Uber than a non-Uber hire.
