    the red phone boxes are an integral part of english culture, like black london cabs and tea. to shut them down is very sad, even tho they are not being used as much. i say keep them open, just to look at

    I had to use one the other day when I was stuck in Milton Keynes at 2am without a mobile phone. It was a harrowing experience but I managed to secure passage home without losing a limb or ingesting and strangers' bodily fluids.

    red phone boxes are brilliant so much better than the new ones which are all glass (or in my area air people keep smashing them and the council keep replacing the windows such a pointless struggle) and they have the old phones in them which actually work when you put money into them instead of swallowing your cash or breaking down all the time

    I haven't seen a red phone box in ages, but some of the old red buses that you can just jump on and off of are still doing the rounds.

    And black cabs, black cabs are evil! They happily speed towards people crossing the road :mad:

    nah they're so much better than the old ones you can get on and off whenever you want and generally they're just better though i can't stand up properly on them
