Apart from Boris, and the Telco's, does anyone know of anyone that thinks this is a good idea?

If only we had No Mobile train carriages and no mobiles downstairs on buses.

Would have thought trying to get Mobile coverage nationwide would be a higher priority.
Number of times I get folk knocking on the door wanting to use the phone (broken down, run out of fuel, accident, or just lost).
Today was a group of 'girl backpackers', D of E's, one had twisted her ankle, wanted to call somebody to come and collect her.
