    Quinn is such a wet noodle. She appears to have no firm opinions on anything. If she was against Boro Taxis, I wish she’d just come out and say it instead of hedging her bets on every issue. She’s not much of a leader if you ask me, and therefore won’t get my vote.

    Quinn really needs to retire to the country. Seriously. She’s enough to make me consider moving to London, where at least Boris Johnson has the crass politics of a “left-leaning” American Democrat.

    It seems “having a seizure” is becoming the fashionable way to avoid taking responsibility for driving irresponsibly or incompetently. If any of these drivers really were prone to having seizures, then they should have turned their licenses in.
