Brexit Party chairman Richard Tice also insisted Big Ben represented the symbol of freedom for the UK.

Earlier this week he said on LBC: “I think it is really important that Big Ben does indeed chime at 11 o’clock.

“It is so important because it is a symbol of our democracy.

“Big Ben, Houses of Parliament it is the mother of all democracy, it is such a recognisable symbol.

“When it chimes on New Year’s eve it is the beginning of a new year and people celebrate, I think this is the exactly the same moment.”
