It is slowly dawning on MPs ( rabid mobile phone users ) that they have to obey speed limits, pay their own mortgages etc. What on earth makes you think they would vote for anything like this. Then of course there is the slight problem of winning an election, your idea is not much of a vote winner.

Maybe you should move to Pyongyang where tight restrictions on mobile phone use are the order of the day. As a bonus they have social democracy.

If people want look a pillock, be rude then passing laws about it is futile.
