Bong Off

Section:

Matthew Steeples slams the campaign to raise £500,000 to make Big Ben ‘bong’ to market Brexit as ridiculous and irresponsible

“Big Ben’s a clock. It chimes on the hour. So what?” sensibly remarked Adam Boulton on Sky News this morning.

Meanwhile, elsewhere the devious lobbyist-not-a-journalist Isabel Oakeshott took to Twitter to moan that Downing Street is “lame, lame, lame” and not “inspiring confidence” for not immediately agreeing to “make a bell ring” to ‘celebrate’ “post-Brexit Britain.” Joining her calls also was rent-a-gob crackpot Mark Francois – whom announced he was giving £1,000 personally and joining an appeal today to raise £500,000 to make said clock ring out to mark the UK leaving the EU on 31st January.

 

As of 10am Thursday, just shy of £50,000 of the target had been raised on GoFundMe. I say: Those donating must be bonkers. Why isn’t Mark Francois instead urging people to donate, say, to help the homeless dying on the streets in the vicinity of the Palace of Westminster? Shame on him and all else involved in this ludicrous campaign.

  1. Make it BONG!!!!!!!!! And tell all the immigrants to BONG OFF!!!!!!!!!!!! Chuck them all in the Thames and drown the lot of them!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. We had VE Day in 1945. I think we should be allowed a special chiming of Big Ben for our VB Day (Victory for Brexit).
    Mind you, I’ll grant you, £500,000 seems excessive.

  3. Might I suggest not linking to the funding page, so as not to give this ridiculous campaign more attention than it deserves?

    Personally, I do think it’s one of the most appalling wastes of money imaginable. Even if Big Ben does bong at Midnight, how many Brexiteers are actually going to make a trip there to listen to it – while the building is still swathed in scaffolding?
    They could get the same effect by simply playing recorded chimes on a loudspeaker. And it would be a heck of a lot cheaper too.

    Instead, I’d urge readers to donate to a cause which will actually do some good in the world. Whether it’s a homeless organisation (as Matthew suggests), a charity to help fight the fires in Australia, or – as I did today – donate to Great Ormond Street Hospital. It’s a cause that’s close to my heart – as they literally saved my little niece’s life when nobody locally was listening.
