Division bell 23:02 - Feb 18 with 1262 viewscolinallcars

Funny the things that have always been there but you don't know about.
Pubs near the House of Commons had a division bell in the bar to call MPs if a vote was about to take place. Died out cos of mobile phones.
Most of the boozers I'd been to had bells followed by a rough gutteral voice shouting “ aintcha got no 'omes to go to ? ”

It's a pub not a club was another one.

I always thought that the bell only struck in the House Bar, and signfied the time for MP's to finally do their job, and vote, Colin. Bad enough.

But, you're right. It was also in surrounding pubs. Christ, we pay these people to represent us.

When I was a serious drinking man, people would occasionally ask me what I looked for in a pub?

"Curtains, big heavy curtains"' I'd reply.

The reason parliament has subsidised bars was to keep MPs from spending all day on the port in nearby members clubs back in the 18th and 19th centuries
