Plans to inflict mobile coverage onto the tube network, which have been resurrected more times than Peter Andre's career, appear to be enjoying a new outing, this time using the excuse of the 2012 Olympics. Although TfL, who shelved plans back in March, say they still haven't received any credible proposals, Communications Minister Lord Carter seems determined to force us to listen to everyone else's banal conversations (because only our own are interesting) despite the fact that the technical challenges haven't changed. We can only hope that the latest plans will be pushed back into the sidings. Again.
