Yesterday in the British Parliament the House of Commons Commission approved a measure to rename the Clock Tower of the Palace of Westminster - known to millions all over the world as "Big Ben" -  the Elizabeth Tower, to mark the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Officially, the tower never was "Big Ben" as "Big Ben" is really the name of the bell inside. Members of Parliament accept that people will continue to call the tower "Big Ben" anyway, just as they do now.

What do you think?  Have your say in the poll below:

Is it a good idea to rename the "Big Ben" clock tower?
