Believe it or not, there are many ancient laws in the UK that have never been scrapped, such as:

1. It is illegal for a cab in the City of London to carry rabid dogs or corpses.

2. It is illegal to die in the Houses of Parliament.

3. It is an act of treason to place a postage stamp bearing the British monarch upside down.

4. Royal Navy ships that enter the Port of London must provide a barrel of rum to the Constable of the Tower of London.

5. In the UK, a pregnant woman can legally relieve herself anywhere she wants – even, if she so requests, in a policeman’s helmet.

6. In Lancashire, no person is permitted after being asked to stop by a constable on the seashore to incite a dog to bark.

7. In England, all men over the age of 14 must carry out two hours of longbow practice a day.

8. In London, Freemen are allowed to take a flock of sheep across London Bridge without being charged a toll; they are also allowed to drive geese down Cheapside.

9. In the UK, a man who feels compelled to urinate in public can do so only if he aims for his rear wheel and keeps his right hand on his vehicle.

10. In Chester, Welshmen are banned from entering the city before sunrise and from staying after sunset.

11. In the city of York, it is legal to murder a Scotsman within the ancient city walls, but only if he is carrying a bow and arrow.

12. In London, it is illegal to flag down a taxi if you have the plague.

13. The head of any dead whale found on the British coast is legally the property of the King; the tail, on the other hand, belongs to the Queen - in case she needs the bones for her corset.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketI know, for instance, item no. 8 above was successfully exercised July last year when two world-famous architects, Lord Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano led a flock of sheep crossing Millennium Bridge to mark the start of London Architecture Week.

Now I know... the overwhelming stench which seems to be everywhere in the city centre on Sunday mornings simply come from those exercising their rights (item 9)....

and what about item 5.... probably someone need to make aware of this law to those ladies camping and protesting at Heathrow Airport at the mo.
