A wild animal is most dangerous when wounded

Ever watched a boxer, well behind on points, fight the last few rounds?
Ever watched your team turn it on in the last ten minutes of a game because they are losing, and thought 'Why didn't they play like this from the start?"

We the Taxi Trade are in the last ten minutes of our game.
If we can score one goal, we will get that vital replay at home.
We must lift our heads and go that extra mile. Hit the opposition with everything we have. Force them back into their own penalty area.
Fight like we have nothing to lose. Because literally, that is the case; we have nothing to lose.

The game is not over! It is time to play like a team.
A champion never throws in the towel. And a team of champions always play to the final whistle.
So do not give up. That is what TfL and their masters want.

We, as a Trade, have been misrepresented and betrayed.
We have waited for something to happen, for promises to be kept and for the sleeping eighty percent to wake up. All we got for our troubles was to end up further down Shit Creek.
That was then, this is now. It is time to show our Dunkirk spirit.
We are not going to hold our hands up and surrender, because some rich arsehole thinks we are insignificant.
Those of you who have been fortunate enough to travel in Taxis abroad, know only too well how highly regarded we are by our fellow cabbies across the world.
They are looking to us to show them the way.
We are not going to shy away from our responsibilities.
We are going to fight!
We are going to get that replay!
We are going to let them know, in no uncertain terms, if we go down, we are taking each and every one of those bastards down with us!

Join the RMT, so we can become one powerful voice.
Leave the subservient eighty percent who are submissive to TfL and their condescending board.
Join the proactive twenty percent, who do everything for you on your behalf.
Refuse to be bowed by bullying officials and their underhand tactics.
Help turn the Pro Twenty percent into a Pro Fifty percent.
Help turn TfL on its head and make the new Mayor realise we are playing for our lives.
