Tokenism has taken a bit of a hit. I read this morning that Boris was planning on fleecing the tax payer to raise money for Big Ben to Bong on Brexit Day but the Mail are reporting that it won't happen at all.
Boris Johnson says he is planning a 'bung a bob for a Big Ben bong' crowdfunding campaign to celebrate Brexit after Parliament rules out special chimes on January 31 over the £500,000 cost

The Mailites think it's a Remainer plot to thwart their Brexit celebrations.

Why does it cost that much? I think they are lying because they simply don't want to celebrate Brexit?

No doubt stuffed full of Remainers. Won't get away with a firework celebration either, Sadiq won't let it happen!

They just don't want to celebrate it. And also no doubt they hope to scupper Nigel's party in parliament sq as hinted in article. They had no problem bonging for new years eve nor fireworks etc. Its pathetic the government organised nothing to mark momentous day. But knowing the Establishment really hate it will make Brexit day sweeter anyway

500k is about one day of MPs' fiddled expenses and poison dwarf taxi rides. This decision is not about money ... it's about the anti democratic MPs.
