AndyG BS: some interesting Etamology (48) RE: BS: some interesting Etamology 11 Oct 00


Are you claiming that bricked up windows are evidence of the etymology of the phrase ?
(They're certainly evidence of the effect of the law.)

Why can't "daylight robbery" be the opposite of Burglary as defined in UK Law ? (entering with intent to commit a felony at night).
Or just a robbery committed in daylight (so all can see) ?

Occam's Razor and all that.
