Silly British laws (Just for laugh)

They say the law is an ass, but you can now ride your donkey on certain roads in the capital free of charge - thanks to a repeal of the 1810 Westminster Sunday Tolls Act.

It is just one of the many bizarre British laws that has recently been removed from the rule book.

Justice Secretary Jack Straw is on a mission to remove or amend 328 obsolete laws under the Statute Law (Repeals) Bill, to be debated in the House of Lords.

These include an 18th-century law forbidding servants from organising "inside job" burglaries, and one passed in 1839 requiring buskers to clear off immediately if asked to by the manservants of irritated householders.

Thought death only occurs in NTU or NUS or Jurong East? I saw suicide at Bukit Panjang. To me, currently, death is not really an abstract to think about, but something I see happening. Especially suicide. Wenjiang was sharing in service that if only we had rubbed shoulders with these people, things could have turned out different for them.
