:? How can it possibly cost half a million quid to bong the Big Ben bell twelve times? The hammer only weighs 200kg and it's mounted on a pivot. A reasonably strong person could do the job manually.

If it rings 12 times at 11pm, the time mentioned in the article, that's a sure sign that post-Brexit Britain will be out of sync with the rest of the world.

;) Surely that depends on whether it rings out the old with CET or rings in the new with GMT.

:lol: But if it's only eleven bongs it should be even cheaper. We need someone like that J Arthur Rank bloke in days of yore.

There's plenty of J Arthur Rankers at Westminster.

There's a bloke in our village could do it. I don't know him but his face rings a bell.
Gone to better place, which, quite frankly, could be anywhere.

Perhaps the Remainers might have an alternative party with, at its heart a guillotine. As the hour approaches, first Mark Francois then, on the stroke of whatever time, Farage might just be shortened by a head.
