Defcon Schwarzenegger - shurely shome mishtake?

Expensive, Elitist, Expensive Transport

Elitist and expensive.

Fitting

Expensive? Check

Uncomfortable? Double double check

Elitist? Check

Choosy? Check (try hailing one after midnight if you're a bloke with a mate)

Have you seen the ones with the useless 'internet' screens in the back? What a fu*king liberty!

Couldn't happen to a nicer class of vehicle.

@Thad

You're just jealous that you don't have any national symbols in your part of the bog !! London's black cabs are renowned worldwide and London's cabbies have a built-in sat-nav in their brains - see scientific(??) proof in BBC website. Other world renown cities have paid big RMBs for the right to use those cabs in those cities !!

Still, I can't blame you hicks for being jealous but could you, please, take that bit of straw out of your mouth before you go "oo-arrrr" !!
