image for Big Ben Goes Digital

A controversial plan to turn Big Ben digital has been unveiled by the Ministry For Putting Things On Top Of Other Things.

Under the crackpot scheme,all of Big Bens four faces would be replaced with large LCD panels which would display the time in large green digits, visible for miles around (if other buildings weren't in the way).

Reaction to the plan has been mixed. Sid Spoons of Whitechapel said "another piece of history being flushed down the bog" and Monica Crabnight of Chelsea said "I'm not bothered, I already have a digital watch".

The old clock mechanics would be put on Ebay for auction or sold to Michael Jackson who has already expressed an interest.
