That old saying "if you want to know the time ask a policeman".

I always took it as a reference to how friendly and helpful British Bobbies are. Not a bit of it. Apparently it was from an old music hall song, the suggestion being that police officers might pinch the watches from unconscious drunks . Well I never.

Cue a blizzard of posts along the lines of "You idiot Mex. everyone knows that!"

Not atoll Mex, I never knew that.

That's two things I have learned today now, your one can be added to the advice I received on storing water in case supplies are cut.

I'm sure there was a thread last week about power cuts in FY6.

You are serving on the front line of The Great Fracking War on the Fylde Coast, 2016. You need to be prepared for every eventuality.

I'd get some tins of beans in too.

I did wonder how I was supposed to make beans on toast with no power.

The candles were for the toast but how the feck could I do the beans ?

Corned beef is not a good alternative, how do you open the tins ?

Something else I learnt today. The Beatles were big fans of George Formby.

Tee hee.

The OP is right in that Police do have watches because they need to log at what time they wrongfully arrested someone.

Also I think George Formby was the early/first exponent of innuendo (not the crap Queen song) in music.

The OP is rubbish.......

If you want to know the time, ask a policeman.
The proper Greenwich time, ask a policeman,
Every member of the force has a watch and chain, of course,
If you want to know the time, ask a policeman!
