Order, order, this House will be demolished | The Daily Dust delivering the best bric a brac, daily news and events with a British flavour


The MPs expenses scandal has angered many UK residents, but one man has gone that step further – by submitting a planning application demolish the House of Commons.

Stand up comedian and part time law student Tony Hickson wants to knock down the home of UK Parliament and put a nature reserve in its place.

The application, submitted on June 4, boasts a "duck hotel" for migratory species as well as a badger bridge. The 40-year-old from Crouch End who studies law at London South Bank University said: "I think it would make a good nature reserve or even a landfill site."

Although the House of Commons is listed, Westminster planning allows for relaxed regulations when applying to demolish listed buildings if your building is a nature reserve.

Thanks for the heads up from www.Journalism.co.uk.
