1 WTF Law on Sat Oct 21, 2017 9:22 pm

One law which is not followed as closely however, is part of the 1872 Licensing Act, which states: “It is Illegal to be drunk in the pub.”

The legislation adds: “Every person found drunk… on any licensed premises, shall be liable to a penalty”.

1. All beached whales and sturgeons must be offered to the Reigning Monarch

2. No person shall, in the course of a business, import into England, potatoes which he knows, or has reasonable cause to suspect, are from Poland

3. It is Illegal to be drunk in the pub

4. It is illegal to carry a plank along a pavement (as well as any ladder, wheel, pole, cask, placard, showboard, or hoop) in the Metropolitan Police District

5. MPs are not allowed to wear armour in Parliament

6. It is an offence to be drunk and in charge of cattle in England and Wales

7. It is illegal to handle a salmon in suspicious circumstances

8. It is an offence to beat or shake any carpet, rug, or mat (except door mats before 8am) in a thoroughfare in the Metropolitan Police District

9. It is illegal to jump the queue in the Tube ticket hall

10. It is illegal to activate your burglar alarm without first nominating a ‘Key-Holder’ who can switch it off in your absence

"The king had the right to the head and the queen had the right to the tail."
