Big Ben Bong.

Hands up those who think Big Ben should bong in celebration when we leave the EU on January the 31st.

OK, hands up in the air those who think it should bong. 😂

Re: Big Ben Bong.

Church bells ringing, big ships fog horns blowing, and a one off bank holiday.

That should about cover it.

Would the Red Arrows swirling over parliament be too much?

Re: Big Ben Bong.

It does sound like a funeral toll so maybe appropriate.

Re: Big Ben Bong.

Why not organise all the remaoners into the Elizabeth Tower and in rotation they could wail in pain at experiencing what democracy feels like.  Interspaced with shrieks from Gina Miller looking at her bank balance seeing how it plummeted needlesly as she took legal action trying to block the will of the people. As Labour found out, don't mess with Northern-voters - just because we don't live in Islington, dosen't mean that we are all uncouth and un-educated!  🤣🤔😁

Big Ben Bong? They're bringing back London Smog with the use of a giant "green herb" smoking device?? 🤣

Re: Big Ben Bong.

Every Church bell in the country should be rung, and every beacon on hilltops lit - pity they let all those fireworks off early,  as prvious poster said they should have saved the new years fireworks for something way more important - the new bank holiday 'leaving the EU day' or 'VE+1 day' or 'independence day',  take your pick.

Re: Big Ben Bong.

Don't expect Sadiq Khan to welcome the idea of Big Ben bonging for VE+1 day,  More likely to sanction a not very flattering blimp of Boris wearing a nappy or a bikini and raise the EU flag on all public buildings - why is Sadiq still there is what I want to know...

Something to do with getting elected in 2016 with 56.8% of the vote. Apparently it's called democracy Smiley

I thought after the way he treated the elected President of our best ally in the world their military may have taken him out in a drone strike - and honestly I can't think of a bettter idea.....
