Archaic laws to be swept from UK books

Those hoping to kill a Scotsman in York for carrying a bow and arrow had better act fast. This law, along with many others dating as far back as 1322, will soon be removed from the UK law books.

A combined comission from England, Wales, and Scotland have recommended over 800 laws for deletion. One law from the 14th century states that pets and livestock may be seized to pay off the King's debts.

If all the changes go through, dying in Parliament will also now be legal.
