OCD sufferers are demanding immediate action to straighten Big Ben. Experts believe the clock tower could be out of kilter by as much as 0.26 degrees.
“One report claims that the tower is leaning so much, you can almost see it with the naked eye”, said long-term sufferer Brian Yates. “I’ve been stood here for three days now, and it’s starting to really upset me.”
A group of pedants later joined the protest, claiming a clock-face angled 0.26 degrees from vertical could be inaccurate by as much as 0.0433333 seconds. Several uncompromising demands were voiced by the Asperger society.
The protests were largely peaceful, although five people were arrested for a range of disorders.
