The court ruling forces Uber to leave Brussels on Friday.

Starting this Friday, November 26, drivers with LVC (Rental Car with Driver) licenses and drivers using the Uber utility to carry people will be required to stop their operations in Brussels. The U.S. agency points out that the discrepancy was caused by a Brussels Court of Appeal ruling handed down on Wednesday.

⁇The Brussels Court of Appeals ruled in 2015 that the injunction against UberPop (author’s note: an individual’s car transport service) also applies to motion services provided by professional drivers LVC.Uber said in a statement.

2,000 drivers have been affected

The stop will take effect this Friday, November 26 from 6 p.m. “From that moment on, 2,000 Brussels drivers with LVC licenses will lose their sources of income and hundreds of thousands of passengers will not be able to access these safe and affordable transportation options.Uber said.

Laurent Slitz, director of Uber Belgium, believes the move should not be: “The move comes on the heels of outdated regulations written in the past for smartphones, which the government has promised to reform over the past seven years, failing a year. […] We urge the Brussels government to act swiftly to reform the taxi and LVC sector once and for all so that drivers can continue to work and provide for their families. “

GTL-TAXI, the national consortium of driver-driven taxi and rental car companies, commented on the situation that Uber should always be operated with licensed taxi drivers. The panel further said that the sector is facing a shortage of drivers after the health crisis and Uber is ready to hire drivers with employment contract and life pay in the short term.

Drivers rushed in for their part. Newspaper Data News Hundreds of them reportedly drove their car into the Brussels ring road, disrupting traffic. “Mr. Tomorrow and finally, we will block all of Brussels until Verworth and his team (sic) finally decide on a solution for LVC drivers.», Fernando Redonto, President of the Belgian Limousine Drivers Association announces

Opposition parties have stated they will not run in the by-elections. David Weightsman, Brussels MP (MR) declares: “This is a real social disaster. Brussels and PS, the city with the highest risk of poverty in Europe, are at risk of sending thousands of people out of work or to CPAS. “

The same story was reported on the CDH page by Vice-Chancellor Christophe de Buegler: “This is a massive responsibility that will tarnish the record of this government and its credibility. The government is helping to force LVC drivers to accept its taxi scheme: they have no choice between that and unemployment. The socialist system, therefore, is to lay off 2,000 workers without warning, without consultation with representatives and without any hope for the future of the families.. ⁇

Carlton Cole says Man City vs West Ham could ‘be a Holocaust’ live on BBC radio sparking outrage from listeners

CARLTON COLE has sparked outrage after suggesting Manchester City vs West Ham could be "a Holocaust".

The pundit, 38, was providing his pre-match analysis for the BBC when he used the term, which has upset many listeners.

Cole said on BBC Five Live: “You gotta give Man City some respect… otherwise you’re gonna get picked off and then it’s gonna be a Holocaust, and you don’t want that."

In response to the backlash Cole came back on air to issue an apology while also replying "sorry mate" to a fan on Twitter who called his words "absolutely disgusting".

Fans were naturally shocked at Cole's choice of words and some have called for Cole to be dropped as a pundit.

Cole's apology came in response to one Twitter user who wrote: "Shocking to hear that Carlton Cole just used the word ‘Holocaust’ as a football pundit on BBC Five Live when talking about a potential result.

"Absolutely disgusting. No apology on air yet. How is this even possible??"

Another added: "Carlton Cole’s use of the word Holocaust in the context of a potential football result is way, way out of order and nobody has said a single word about it, it’s not acceptable."

A third said: "Carlton Cole saying holocaust live on air. Hopefully never on the radio again."

Last month Bristol Rovers manager Joey Barton provoked similar fury by using the term 'Holocaust' to describe a poor performance from his side.

That led to fierce criticism with Sussex Friends of Israel - a community group dedicated to promoting a better understanding of Israel.

A statement from the group in reference to Barton read: "The use of the term ‘Holocaust’ has been so badly abused in recent years that idiots think it can be used in the context of a bad performance by a football team.

“If you need to remind people like Barton that 6,000,000 perished in the Shoah I despair for the future.”
