A "scope throne" is a chair with two arms and a high back or even better, two arms which rise out of the middle of a long bench in a pub for no reason other than to give one lucky divvil out of the seven or so people on the bench full use of armrests. As a postscript he added that the process of using "keys rules" is called "keysing", the present tense is "to keys" and after the deed the victim would be "keysed".
