Calm Down, Chaps, It's Only The #Ashes

Australia Big Ben Ashes cricket stunt ‘illegal’

Westminster Council has threatened legal action after a taunting slogan was beamed on to Big Ben by Australia’s cricket team ahead of the Ashes.

Images of cricketers Ricky Ponting and Michael Clarke were projected on to the tower with the message for the England team: “Don’t forget to pack the urn.”

In fact, something similar on the Sydney Opera House would be a more appropriate response, methinks. I’m sure we can leave it to the Barmy Army to come up with something more original than “It’s OK Ricky, we didn’t bother bringing the urn”.
