A Conservative MP has called for Brexit to be marked next week with a fireworks display that can be seen from France and a huge banner hanging from the white rocks of the dorm.
Dover MP Natalie Elphicke has urged Britain to celebrate the exit from the European Union by hanging a banner displaying the words ‘We love Britain’ on 31 January.
The newly elected conservative banner suggested a rival should have 150 square meters of space “we still love the European Union” flag which is being crowdfunded by Liberal Democrat MEP Antony Hook.
Mr Hook said in a statement announcing the proposal, “Sadly, we can no longer stop Brexit, but we can send a strong message to the world that we still love Europe.”
The crowdfunding campaign has raised around £ 14,000 and has quickly passed its £ 5,500 target to fund the pro-Europe banner.
Ms Elphicke has said that her proposal is an opportunity to use the date of Brexit “to share our positive message about Britain and the future with all we can”.
The MP said, ‘This is a moment where we can look ahead with ambition for Britain, we can build in the coming decades.
“That’s why the message we should be smiling on the white rocks is that ‘we love Britain’. Because we are proud to be an independent nation again.”
To date, Mr Hook has promised to spend surplus money on “an exciting extra performance”.
The Conservative politician’s call comes after pro-Brexit lawmakers failed to make Big Ben Bong on Brexit Day.
Prime Minister Boise Johnson suggested crowdfunding the £ 500,000 bill to reinstate Big Ben to order work to date. Still, his proposal backfired when parliamentary officials said they would mobilize the public Cannot accept the money gone.
A spokesman for Mr Johnson said last week, “House of Commons officials have determined that there may be potential difficulties in accepting funds from public donations.
Instead, a clock counts down to the moment Britain leaves the European Union will be projected on the outside of No ten, and a light show will illuminate buildings around Whitehall.
The Independent has contacted Ms Elphicke for further comment on her proposal.
The MP succeeded her husband Charlie Elphicke in the 2019 general election after stepping down following allegations of sexual harassment, which she has denied.
