MPs should not let Big Ben fall silent, says NICK FERRARIThe bells will be silenced until 2021

Since its installation on May 31, 1859, it has tolled and echoed in a never-ending list of significant events. Wars have been declared, and won, with the sonorous tones behind the relevant announcements.

 

Accordingly, from tomorrow the bells will be silenced until 2021, save for being permitted to chime on events such as New Year’s Eve and Remembrance Sunday, and work that all agree is both necessary and desirable will begin.

 

What do you suppose the chances are, though, that this work will be conducted 24 hours a day for seven days a week and done under floodlights and through rain, sleet and snow? Agreed, no chance whatsoever. suggest Nick FERRARI.

 

And We agree it should be completed like the Japanese workforce 24/7.

 

 

The symbolism of closing down Elizabeth Tower, which houses Big Ben and was renamed to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, for such a long period is indescribable.

 

Prime Minister Theresa May has said she hopes the Speaker “will look into this urgently”.
