People gave 272 thousand pounds to ring a bell for brexit? FFS, if you've got spare money give it to people who need food, or housing, or...or...or....

I've added the link. Beyond belief, it really is. The only good news is that the money wasn't wasted in the end since they didn't raise enough to ring the stupid bell.

What would have been even funnier would be if they'd raised the £500,000, the bell got fixed, but then didn't get rung again until April or some shit.

I think the 500k was just for the "special ring" such as they do for Armistice Day, etc. while the thing is under repairs. I don't think it was even to go towards the repair of the bell tower.

There will be no Bong for Brexit, thankfully, the money will be given to Veterans charities.
