Ben, if that was his name plays at being one of the famous Queen's guards who when not on duty overseas can be tasked with providing protection or performing other duties such as standing or sitting very still (which sounds easier than it is) when in London and the locations of those tasks include Buckingham Palace and in Whitehall to name two examples.  Ben - if that was his name - can be seen standing on Westminster bridge - and my reason for not believing him to be a genuine Queen's guard is his inability to stand still. He's also 'big leggy' and would look out of place in the Queen's regiment. Ben stands opposite Ben, a genuine London, British and world icon and the genuine one is also big and in fact is commonly referred to as Big Ben. However Big Ben is the bell inside the clock tower rather than the clock tower itself though it too (the clock tower) has had a recent name change and would now like to be referred to as the Elizabeth Tower and those heard not calling her Elizabeth may be charged as a traitor punishable by a thousand lashes - sorry I need to correct that as we're not yet living in a Caliphate. So the actual punishment could be the brutal but very effective killing method of being Hung, drawn then Quartered so watch your P's and Q's and always remember the State has very big ears and eyes
