Houses of Parliament Destroyed

This was on telly last night. Topgear's Richard Hammond builds a replica of the former House of Commons which Guy Fawkes targetted, and sees what would have happened had he lit the fuse.



It was only when looking this up that I noticed that Richard shares his surname with Evey, of V for Vendetta fame. Here's Big Ben going up;



As the wife says, The Voice of Fa-*Ahem*Radio 4 would just replace the dongs with 'Sounds of Summer'...

While I'm at it, here's a UFO smashing into the side of Parliament.



Oh, alright then. One more; Time Trumpet's Terrorism Awards. One of the nominees is the al-qaeda 747 attack on Big Ben.

Ah yes! If only!

In reality, of course, it's effectively already happened.
