In a bit of a role reversal for Uber, the company is taking legal action against the city of London over new rules for its drivers. I don't know what to say. I'm so used to Uber being sued that it is freaky to actually see them suing somebody else.

Uber has launched legal action against new rules in London such as written English tests for its drivers, in the latest battle between regulators and the car ride app which has faced bans and protests worldwide. Following months of demonstrations from drivers of the capital's famous black cabs, public body Transport for London (TfL) launched a consultation last year on a raft of proposals to restrict the way private hire firms operate.
