Apparently it is illegal to die in the House of Commons. UK Gold viewers (whatever that may be, sounds more like a radio station to me) have voted this the silliest law in Britain and unearthered some other oddities reported by reputable broadcaster the BBC here. Apparently according to an ancient statute, sticking a stamp on a letter upside down is also potentially a treasonable offence. Oh the joys of having an unwritten constitution.
