Product description

Review

Because of doubts about their moral character, there is an ordinance in Great Yarmouth in Norfolk banning the naming of streets after Shakespeare, Chaucer Byron or any other great poet; at St Peter's . . . a law forbids ladies showing their ankles in public on pain of being put in the stocks . . . This light-hearted trawl through statute books, both past and present, unearths dozens of similar laws, some of which, bizarrely, are still in force . . . Who said the law was dull?--This England

Book Description

An entertaining tour of the wilder shores of the British legal system
