It would cost £500,000 for Big Ben to strike at the moment of Brexit, according to the prime minister.

Boris Johnson said Big Ben’s clapper had been removed during the current restoration project and temporarily replacing it would come at a considerable cost.

The idea for the bells to ring out at 23:00 GMT on 31 January – the time and date the UK is due to officially leave the EU (it’ll be midnight in Brussels) – was first floated by pro-Brexit MPs.

But at £500,000, the cost of marking Brexit in this way would be just over £45,000 per bong – assuming the bell strikes 11 times.

Big Ben is the bell. Elixabeth Tower, which all tourists think is Big Ben, is undergoing restoration. Like all government schemes it’s taking years and costing a fortune. So spend half a million more and mark this Great Moment of National Restoration in proper style. Yes, make taxpayers pay. Yes, make Remainers pay too. We all had to fork out for the EU and its antecedents for decades, so screw them on 31st January.

“But Pete” they will whine, “it would triumphalist and jingoistic.” Yes it will, and that’s exactly the point. We won, they lost, and they can start healing the divisions they caused by sucking it up.

We are restoring our sovereignty, independence and self-governance for patriotic reasons. Our rejection of Euro-globalist government is, by definition, a nationalist event. So we will be as jingoistic as we like in our own country at the moment of our rebirth, into the light of independence.

    Don’t be using words like diversity or equality neither . Talking of which I wonder when the assault on human rights legislation is going to begin. How will that be choreographed ?

  7. Kicking a paki in the head is problematic with human rights laws. As well as having to pay the hospital tax payers money for his stiches to be taken out .
