50 British Bobbies in 1968 "all of them armed"??? I think not. Where'd you get that factoid. Better check.

You betcha they were. Those hats can put somebody's eye out if'n they get swung the wrong way.

One false move and Lennon could have just told Yoko, "Sing!" Those bobbies would have been penguin dust in no time.

He had spectacles. You don't beat a man in spectacles, don't you?

What were the "inquiries"? Did this have anything to do with the kidnapping of Yoko's daughter by her ex-husband?

This would be John's drug bust.

Of course the title Life With the Lions comes from the BBC Radio show Life with the Lyons, which featured Ben Lyon and his wife, American film comedienne Bebe Daniels.
