Live election results beamed onto Big Ben


Hmm.. who’s idea is this? The election results are to be beamed onto Big Ben “from 05.30 when the first results are announced.”

Hmmm.. isn’t it kinda getting light at 5.30am ? No-one is gonna notice a laser show on Big Ben in the morning sun are they ? Oh, and if you read into it more you’ll see that they’re removing results “after dawn” so, by my reckoning, the actual results will be on Big Ben for about 20 minutes!

Edit – Yup, I just checked, the sunrise time on Thursday is 05.22

During the night they’ll have results of “exit polls” on the clock, which hardly anyone will see because they’ll all be asleep.
