Weird Laws #1. It is illegal to carry a plank along a pavement

True. This has been illegal since 1839. The Act also bans you from sliding on snow, playing “annoying games”, and flying kites in the street. No fun please, we’re British.

Weird Laws #2. It is illegal to die in parliament.

False. There’s a longstanding myth that you’re not “allowed” to die in parliament, because the government would have to give you a state funeral.

Weird Laws #3. It is illegal not to carry out at least two hours of longbow practice a week.

Not any more. Englishmen aged between 17 and 60 were required to own a longbow and practise using it regularly by a law enacted in 1541. This law was eventually repealed, but much later than you might think: It was on the statute books until 1960. Weird UK Law #4. It is illegal to beat or shake any carpet or rug in any street. True. This has been illegal since 1839, but you are allowed to beat a doormat, provided you do it before 8am.

Weird UK Law #5. It is illegal to be drunk on licensed premises (i.e. in a pub).

True. This one is enforced under at least three separate laws. Under the 1872 Licensing Act, there’s a penalty for “every person found drunk” in a licensed premises, while 1839’s Policing Act forbids landlords from permitting drunkenness. The 2003 Licensing Act also makes it an offence to sell alcohol to a drunk person, or to buy a drunk person a drink.

Weird UK Laws #6. It is illegal to be drunk in charge of a horse.

True. This dates back to 1872, and you’re also not allowed to be drunk in charge of a cow, or while you’re carrying a loaded firearm, which seems… pretty sensible, actually.

Weird UK Laws #7. It is legal to shoot a Welshman with a longbow on Sunday in the Cathedral Close in Hereford; or inside the city walls of Chester after midnight; or a Scotsman within the city walls of York, other than on a Sunday.

All of these are FALSE. Please do not do any of these. The Law Commission couldn’t find any evidence any of these laws ever existed.

Weird UK Laws #8. It is illegal to eat mince pies on Christmas Day.

This happened one time. Christmas Day in 1644 fell on a legally mandated fast day, so it would have been illegal to eat a mince pie, even though they weren’t specifically mentioned.

Weird UK Law #9. It is illegal to jump the queue in the tube ticket hall.

True. So long as there’s a sign telling you to queue (or a member of staff), queue-jumping is illegal under TfL byelaws: You have to join from the back. This is possibly the most British law in existence.

Weird UK Law #10. It is illegal to destroy or deface money.

Mostly true. If you want to destroy a banknote for some reason, that’s actually legal. But under the Currency and Banknotes Act of 1928, it’s illegal to deface a banknote by drawing, stamping, or printing on it. It’s also illegal to destroy coins.

Weird UK Law #11. It is illegal to place a stamp of the Queen upside down on a letter.

False. It’s illegal to do anything with the intention of deposing the Queen (sorry, republicans), but this is fine. The Royal Mail will deliver the letter as normal.

Weird UK Law #12. It is illegal to stand within 100 yards of the reigning monarch without wearing socks.

False. Fear not, you can go sockless near royals.

Weird UK Law #13. It is illegal to handle salmon in suspicious circumstances.

True. This is illegal under the Salmon Act of 1986, apparently. Alas, the Law Commission did not elaborate on what counts as a suspicious way to handle salmon. You can check the original law here, but it won’t help all that much.

Weird UK Law #14. All swans are the property of the Queen, and killing one is an act of treason.

Not ALL swans. The Queen has first dibs on all “wild, unmarked mute swans in open water”, and has since the 12th century, but only actually claims ones on the Thames and some tributaries.

BE NICE, DONATE!! – bit.ly/18yNmAu 10 odd British laws you have probably broken by accident Several studies have suggested that most of us break the law every day in Britain – or at least a few times every week. But most of the time, we commit these crimes knowingly – from letting a dog poo in the park, to talking on the phone while driving, to murdering someone while out of your mind on crack cocaine. But there are quite a few laws which may well have passed you by. Have you ever handled a salmon ‘suspiciously’, for instance? We’ve rounded up some of the crimes which you might be committing ALL THE TIME, without even knowing. 1) You’re not allowed to be drunk in a pub Under the Metropolitan Police Act 1839, it is illegal for the ‘keeper of a public house to permit drunkenness on premises’ 2) It’s illegal to sing Happy Birthday in a restaurant The song is a copyrighted work, so performing it in public is technically a violation of copyright. 3) You’re not allowed to slide on ice or snow In London, anyway, under the Metropolitan Police Act 1839 4) You can’t beep a car horn to tell someone off Sounding your horn in anger is illegal and could see you fined. 5) It is illegal to carry a plank along a pavement Carrying building materials in London was outlawed under the Metropolitan Police Act 1839. 6) You must clear your whole windscreen of ice before driving The law states windows must be clear – and you can be fined up to £1,000. 7) You cannot handle a salmon in ‘suspicious circumstances’ Under the Salmon Act of 1986. 8) If you break down beside the motorway, you have to leave your dog in the car Bad luck, Rover. 9) You can’t scribble on banknotes Not even if you’re a magician. 10) Flying a kite in a public place?
