I still think it is appropriate. After all, the other Westminster tower is named after Victoria. And "Big Ben" simply refers to the bell in the clock tower, not the tower itself.
I agree,what could one possibly have against honoring HM in this way?One surely must see that it is quiet
extraordinary that a Monarch sits it out for 60 years and that it takes exceptional measures and celebrations.
Two Queens Reigning over 60 years and both have a tower named after them.You don't see that happening every day....not even in Amsterdam...
Nice,nothing to make a big deal off,no-one will start naming it Big Lilli instead of Big Ben now tho.
Back to the order of the day:
HM and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh are on a visit of Northern Ireland in the frame of the Diamond Jubilee Tour.http://www.royal.gov.uk/LatestNewsandDiary/Gallery.aspx
