Selling the Family Silver (and Gold)

The government is probably congratulating itself on its attempts to reduce the enormous national debt.
Not content with selling off the gold reserves, letting the grandfather clocks go to America, encouraging the brain drain and selling off obsolescent buses, trains and planes by successive British governments, the latest bits of real estate to be targeted are phone boxes. Now that everybody, I mean everybody, uses mobile phones, there is apparently no need to keep those public phones, apart from the traditional old red ones in tourist spots, and they can be disposed of to the highest bidder.

Independence will make a difference provided it can be attained before it is too late to do anything about it.
