Default Public asked to raise money so Big Ben can bong on Brexit night



The mechanism was in place for New Year but has been removed, it was initially claimed it would have cost 120,000 to put it back but this has now risen to a incredible 500,000 and the public are being asked to donate, even if I did agree with Brexit, the cost being claimed has to be some kind of joke...

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics...illion-pounds/

let me have a think....NO!

For £500k I'll scale the tower with my bare hands and screech "DING DOOOONG" from the top.

It's mind blowing that a figure like that can be plucked out of the air with no breakdown of the costs, and fools will pay to crowdfund it, someone will have a nice extra wedge in their bank account on 1st February

I wont be giving any tyvm, I think the government have made the right decision not to pay half a million pounds so the clock can chime a few times, if daft people want to pay out of their own pocket and not query why it is costing so much, that's up to them

Imagine not wanting to pay an extra little bit of tax for the NHS, but being happy to do it for a bell, couldn’t be me
