“Mum’s the word” means to keep silent or quiet.
The quietest people are the smartest people. They watch what they say.
When people are constantly talking, they aren’t thinking about what they’re saying. They are too busy listening to themselves to really understand what they’re even talking about.
As the saying goes, “anything you say can be used against you in a court of law.” In most situations, the less you talk the better. If you want to respond to questions, keep it short.
Less is Best.
“You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I have just read to you? With these rights in mind, do you wish to speak to me?”
Authorities frequently tell you that silence or refusal to consent is incriminating (e.g. ”Not answering is suspicious, why are you resisting?”). This is not incriminating. These are protected rights and you are able to freely exercise them. Respectfully tell them so.
Many people have been questioned by the police, and arrested even though they did nothing wrong.(lawkick.com)
Mum’s the word could also apply to anyone that is trying to get you to incriminate yourself.
